【今日美国】谷歌雇人监听语音助手录音? Google hires someone to listen to voice assistant recordings?

American technology company Google says its contractors listens to recordings of what people say to artificial intelligence system Google Assistant.


美国科技公司谷歌说,它的承包商会听人们对人工智能系统谷歌助手说的话的录音。


The company admitted that people can review those recordings after some of its Dutch language audio clips were leaked to the public.


该公司承认,在一些荷兰语音频片段被泄露给公众后,人们可以查看这些录音。


Google product manager David Monsees wrote about the leak in a recent blog post.He said the company is investigating their release.


谷歌产品经理大卫•蒙西斯(David Monsees)在最近的一篇博客文章中写到了这一漏洞。他说公司正在调查他们的释放。


Belgian broadcaster VRT NWS got hold of more than 1,000 Google Assistant recordings.It noted in a story that some recordings contained sensitive personal conversations,as well as information that identified the person speaking.


比利时广播公司VRT NWS获得了1000多个谷歌助理的录音。它在一篇报道中指出,一些录音包含敏感的个人对话,以及识别讲话人的信息。

Google said the recordings do not identify user account information.It added that contractors who listen to the audio are told not to take notes of background conversations.


谷歌表示,这些录音无法识别用户帐户信息。报告还说,听音频的承包商被告知不要记录背景对话。


Google said its contract work force listens to recordings to better understand speech patterns and differences in regional accents.Google's user terms say the company may use the recordings.They state that Google Assistant"records your voice and audio on Google services to improve speech recognition."


谷歌说,它的合同工作人员听录音,以更好地理解语音模式和地区口音的差异。谷歌的用户条款说,谷歌可能会使用这些录音。他们说谷歌助手“在谷歌服务上记录你的语音和音频,以提高语音识别能力。”


Monsees wrote that Google works with contractors around the world to study the recordings.


Monsees写道,谷歌与世界各地的承包商合作研究这些录音。


Google's terms do not exactly say that people examine the recordings.But the user terms do say the company could study them as it improves services or creates new features.


谷歌的条款并没有明确规定人们会检查这些录音。但用户条款确实表示,公司可以在改进服务或创建新功能时对其进行研究。


Earlier this year,the Bloomberg financial service reported that Amazon's Alexa also uses contractors to listen to recordings.Amazon officials confirmed the report.


今年早些时候,彭博财经社报道说,亚马逊的Alexa也使用承包商收听录音。亚马逊官方证实了这一报道。


Google's recording feature can be disabled,but doing so means Assistant loses some of its technical abilities.Users who turn off the recording feature lose the ability for the Assistant to recognize individual voices and learn their speech patterns.


谷歌的录音功能可以被禁用,但这样做意味着助手失去了一些技术能力。关闭录制功能的用户将失去助手识别单个语音并学习其语音模式的能力。


Google Assistant is available on more than 1 billion devices,including smartphones and smart speakers.It has become more popular in the smart speaker market,but still has fewer users than Amazon.


谷歌助手可以在超过10亿台设备上使用,包括智能手机和智能音箱。它在智能音箱市场上变得更加流行,但用户数量仍然少于亚马逊。
