Murder Being solved by Amazon
47-year-old Victor Collins, a dad of five, was found lying dead in a hot bath tub in 22nd of November 2015. Arkansas. He was suffocated and drowned. This man was chocked and later drowned. After a few days, it emerged that the authority was searching to a close Amazon Echo in helping come up with the solution for the case.
However, that does not imply that the police turned to the device and asked whether Alexa was in a position to solve that particular murder. Instead, it means that they believed that the machine had collected some important audio key evidence. Once the Amazon Echo was connected in, it clearly has been collecting and recording every detail regarding the incident, but the Amazon is hiding all that from the public. The police did not stop to emphasize for the data to be revealed throughout the year from March.
Despite the law enforcement sending an affidavit that could have helped reach data to solve the crime at hand, the Amazon still used its power to fight. That could have only been understood only by using business and perception of information privacy. clearly, the Echo was not formed to be collecting data about the actions and talks of people just for the Amazon to make use of it as an accusation to the clients. Indeed it might turn out to a destruction of the trust between the customers and the Amazon. In that situation, the firm already surrendered and allowed the government to reach to the data.
Once again, there was a similar case that happened, and the world of tech was held in the grip. The San Bernardino attack of shooting was held in the year 2015 In December. In the same year but in a different month of December, there was a shooting attacked in the San Bernardino. Since the FBI wanted the way to reach some data from one of the shooter’s iPhone, they sent an order from the court which was demanding Apple to obey and give out the information. However, Apple disagreed to that claiming that it was to their client’s best interest to keep his/her data confident. Apple has proven that no information of its customers can reach to the authority or any other person without the owner’s permission. The case finally reached an end after an intruder came up with a solution to unlock the phone. After the two scenarios, there has been answers needed for the responsibilities of the tech companies to its clients and the nature of the information privacy. People are now well informed of how crucial it is not to hold some data that might solve a case.
