They machine learn to figure out your likes/dislikes to use for advertising on your other devices/phones/etc.

Do you own one and are you concerned or do you even care?

For me it is a waste of money. I already have Siri and Cortana. Not that I use them anyways...

Dont have one, and dont plan to.

English is not my native language, and the voice recognition only seems to be at the perfect stage in English.
Same reason as me not using Siri or the android alternative.

Besides that, I can write faster than I can speak, so no need to this nonsense anyways!

I don't care too much about it taking in data, also they make plugs you can plugin to your outlet and control lights and stuff.. pretty cool and lazy :D

Hello,

I use Alexa on my Freebox Delta, it is very advanced in learning but it would require an algorithm for which it automatically deletes all that is told to it so that it does not keep our voice data.
Cordially...

I prefer to use google as I think alexa isn't as efficient.

I'm too paranoid it's going to capture everything I'm saying in my house. Got my tinfoil hat on for this one.
