 Amazon AI Security Camera Exposed by Foreign Media Need Manual Assistance


A spokesman for Amazon said the videos were submitted by test staff and CloudCam users to address issues such as error notification and video quality. We attach great importance to privacy and CloudCam customers control their video clips, she said, adding that unless they submit video clips to troubleshoot, only customers can view their videos.

According to reports, however, Amazon did not explicitly inform customers in the CloudCam user terms that the algorithm behind its motion detection software was being trained manually.

Although Amazon insists that all videos are voluntary, according to two people familiar with the situation, the videos analyzed by the team contain private activities that homeowners are unlikely to share.

People familiar with the matter said video clips containing inappropriate content would be tagged and discarded to avoid being misused for AI training. Amazon spokeswoman said the videos were abandoned to improve the censorsexperience, but she did not say why inappropriate activities would occur in voluntary video clips.

Employees say Amazon has implemented strict security rules for CloudCam video annotations. In India, dozens of inspectors work on a restricted floor and are not allowed to use mobile phones, two people familiar with the matter said. But another person familiar with the situation said that this did not prevent other employees from sending videos to non-team members. CloudCams first appearance in 2017, like Alexas Echo speaker, is reported to be one of the devices Amazon hopes to take a place in the emerging smart home market. The device can detect activities in the users home and alert the user. The user can view the video within 24 hours free of charge. If you are willing to pay about $7 to $20 a month, users can view video recordings for a month and receive customized alerts, such as crying babies or smoke alarms. Amazon did not disclose CloudCam sales, but the device is just one of many home security cameras on the market, competing with Googles Nest and Amazons Ring.
