Why does machine learning and artificial intelligence work?
Because people keep feeding them real and honest data.
Idiots will buy a new TV set and install it on their living room using their real name, real address and then this TV set will record everything these idiots say so the TV can obey voice commands.
Another class of morons will buy devices like Alexa and put a spying gadget right inside their homes. The creepy thing listens in on everything, records every single noise made…
