Pierre Grosdidier on Houston Radio: AI with Morals Might Turn on Their Owners for Illegal Activity

03/06/2019

Haynes and Boone, LLP Counsel Pierre Grosdidier talked with Houston KTRH News Radio about whether smart home assistants like the Amazon Echo, Google Home, and Apple HomePod could use artificial intelligence (AI) to report illegal activity to the police.

Here is an excerpt of the live radio interview:

Houston privacy lawyer Pierre Grosdidier said it's a little far-fetched.

"From an AI standpoint, having that device decide whether or not to call the police, I think that's a long shot, that's my take," said Grosdidier.

He says from a forensic crime standpoint, police would be interested what happened inside the house during the commission of a crime.

"I think if you turned the devices on, knowing that they're connected to the Internet and they could report you to authorities, I think there'd be an issue to be made that you waived that right," said Grosdidier.
