Just sneakin' around....
Anyone who puts their trust of, basically, their whole house functions, including security, to an electronic device/system/app, AI.... is a fool.
I learned my suspicions when I was a communications and electronic security technician in a USAFR unit attached to SAC HQ 89 - 91.Anyone who puts their trust of, basically, their whole house functions, including security, to an electronic device/system/app, AI.... is a fool.
My Dad got Alexa as a present. He gets frustrated by technology and bitches at it a lot. He told Alexa it was a useless piece of crap. Now, anytime he asks Alexa a question, it says it cannot work with him and to call tech support instead.My brother in law has Apple's® Siri®.
Last time we were home, he dropped an F-bomb on Siri, and she would not talk to him for a week.
The above video report is why I will not have any AI devices in the house.

An old trick, don't know if it still works, is to dial "0" even if there is no option for it. Many times it will redirect you to a real person.And I detest voice commands on tech calls, because there's no way to describe some of my problems I need help with that a HUMAN BEING won't figure out quickly, but a voice menu machine won't redirect you to pointless lists.

The Quora question and answer site is using one called Sage. I downvote its "answers" when I see them.
Who’s using AI?AI is suddenly everywhere. Image generators and large language models are at the core of new startups, powering features inside our favorite apps, and — perhaps more importantly — driving conversation not just in the tech world but also society at large. Concerns abound about cheating in schools with ChatGPT, being fooled by AI-generated pictures, and artists being ripped off or even outright replaced.
But despite widespread news coverage, use of these new tools is still fairly limited, at least when it comes to dedicated AI products. And experience with these tools skews decidedly toward younger users.
Most people have heard of ChatGPT. Bing and Bard? Not quite.
Heard of it vs. What is it?

Only 1 in 3 people have tried one of these AI-powered tools, and most aren’t familiar with the companies and startups that make them. Despite the many insurgents in the world of AI, like Stability AI and Midjourney, it’s still the work of Big Tech that substantially steers the conversation. OpenAI is the major exception — but arguably, thanks to its market cap and deals with Microsoft, it is itself now a member of the corpo-club.
