TAP scholar Joseph Turow, Annenberg School for Communication, discusses the voice intelligence industry, where “intelligent assistants” can draw conclusions about you, using machine learning techniques. The industry's goal in the near future may be to home in on people’s weight, height, age, ethnicity—all things scientists believe leak from your voice. The growth of this industry jeopardizes privacy, the freedom to choose, and raises questions of social policy that are barely being addressed.
