Ero chat on skype
Do you type everything into one big paragraph, or break it up into smaller ones?
Do you use shorter language in the chat because it’s not a formal piece of communication like email?
The protagonist joins the Soviet space program (fully automated moon exploration! Imagine if has data from one purpose/system that could provide a massive leg-up to them. Perhaps in regulated industries like finance (I happen to work in finance and we have systems and procedures in place for this kind of thing) they may have to destroy it once it's been used for a very specific purpose but we're talking about Skype.
) and[spoilers ahead]learns that the full automation is physical labor by cosmonauts at every stage of the process. The best scenario is if the data doesn't exist or can't be read...
what stops FB (or anyone for that matter) from reading it too at that point.
Sorry, I went on a tangent a bit there but I feel it was relevant.
FB knowing what apps people use makes a lot of sense because it tells them how they’re doing relative to others. Slate and Forbes wrote an article about this in 2012 when it was noticed Microsoft had filed a patent for this..
although nobody from Microsoft would publicly comment on the issue.
Well, going back to the origins of skype it was advertised as encryption that not even employees can read or listen to your calls. I don't think we realize the technical literacy divide that exists.I know that broke around (or probably before) MS purchased it - but I just find it funny how much humanity is willing to let things slide. Because we know how you would go about analyzing that information. It’s an ambiguity that tech companies love to take advantage of. If the word "analyze" was chosen because the word "eavesdrop" would result in users leaving the platform, and eavesdropping is what they're actually doing, then they're obscuring their actions with a euphemism.So much so that we go from the most secure peer to peer architecture ever to - oh yeah contractors are listening to skype calls. I don't think the average person does (anyone in the bay is likely not your average person in this context). For instance, Google will say that they analyze your Gmail to improve the service etc, but that no human will ever read your email. If they communicate that they're eavesdropping, which is what was proposed here, it seems excessive to then claim that they're not communicating this monitoring or listening of calls in a reasonable way which would mean it's not eavesdropping."Shall we make it clear that no humans listened, and that 'analyze' meant via algorithms?Although Skype's website says that the company may analyze audio of phone calls that a user wants to translate in order to improve the chat platform's services, it does not say some of this analysis will be done by humans.I'm sorry, but isn't this just nitpicking?
