Worried your smart home device is listening to you? University of Michigan researcher has a solution
ANN ARBOR, MI -- Some people may worry their smart home devices are randomly listening to their private conversations, but what if there was a way to prevent that from happening? A team of University of Michigan researchers have built a prototype device called the PrivacyMic to do just that. “Most companies are trying to do the right thing, assuming that their customers’ best interest matches their best interest,” Alanson Sample, UM associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science, said. Information like that can then be used to launch smart home devices that give users more privacy, and can even be used for medical research and so on, he said. His research team includes, UM student Yasha Iravantchi, CMU faculty Mayank Goel and Chris Harrison, and CMU student Karan Ahuja.mlive.com
