How Apple listens to you all the time.
I share with you this french article + interview of a whistleblower, he as work for compagny name Globetech in Ireland a subcontractor of Apple during 10 weeks. His job was to listen at records of user request to siri made by iPad user and check and correct if necessary the speech-to-text “AI” of siri.

The interview : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kt0NEZYwnCY
He say that the data go back form 2014 over 11 language (French, English (AU/GB/US/CA and IN), German, Japanese, Chinese( CN&HK)) , the journalist estimate the quantity data in French of user request to siri on Airpods for the 3rd quarter for 2019 at 57 years or record.
He explain what was the objective of Apple for Siri, they are focus the recognition on brand name , TV show name , movies name…
On of his example is about a kid who ask about a tv kid show unrecognized by siri, i had to make a google search to find the name with the perfect spelling.
He also say that their are multiple layer of “analyst”, on them take care about the logic of siri, and have access to all the user data(contact, music, movie…). His example was about someone who say: “siri, call Mike” the analyst can see if siri was able find the contact name “Mike”, if not he can correct the logic of siri by finding manually the contact name “Mike” on the user account.
EDIT : The title is a translation in English of the press article, i not a journalist it’s why i have try to translate the interesting information of this articles, since at my knowledge it’s the first time that someone describe from the inside what’s behind the data collection siri.
