Apple suspends the use of human review to grade Siri recordings
Following last week’s report about Apple using human review to grade Siri recordings, the company announced that it has suspended the practice.
In a statement to The Verge, an Apple spokesperson shared that the company is “committed to delivering a great Siri experience while protecting user privacy”. While it is conducting a thorough review, Apple will be suspending Siri grading globally.
Apple did not clarify whether it would also stop saving Siri recordings on its servers. The current terms of service reveal that Apple keeps the data for six months before removing identifying information from a copy that it could keep for at least two years.
At the moment, users have no way to opt out except to disable Siri altogether. Apple states that users will have the option to choose to participate in grading as part of a future software update.
