Most of us have no idea that someone, somewhere is observing us in this rapidly expanding world where every second brings a new discovery. You did hear correctly. Data science is the only source of truth, and data privacy is a fallacy.
Every internet behemoth, including Google, Amazon, Netflix, Uber, and Apple, is gathering a tonne of data from our devices, about our actions, and with our consent. They know exactly where we checked in last night, what we ate for supper, what shows we like to watch, what products we want to buy, and where we reside. In order to market their artificial intelligence (AI) powered bots to us at the expense of suggesting our favorite foods, programmes, movies, etc., they employ the laws of mathematics to extract science from our data. But this is only the very top of the iceberg. Data may be utilized for many different things; given the right data, we can even recreate your voice and facial expressions.
Take a straightforward illustration. The majority of us have a Google mini or an Alexa at home. When turned on, it continually captures whatever we say, even when we are not talking to Alexa and are instead just chatting with our family informally. However, everything is legal since we can choose what information to share with them. On our mobile phones, the majority of us give them all the rights they need, but we should constantly inquire as to why they require access to our microphones, cameras, or galleries. This privilege is only available when using the app. Many thefts of background data will be stopped by this. So, take care when sharing info. Simply shutting off Alexa after use would suffice.
