NSA slides explain the PRISM data-collection program
The top-secret PRISM program allows the U.S. intelligence community to gain access from nine Internet companies to a wide range of digital information, including e-mails and stored data, on foreign targets operating outside the United States. The program is court-approved but does not require individual warrants. Instead, it operates under a broader authorization from federal judges who oversee the use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Some documents describing the program were first released by The Washington Post on June 6. The newly released documents below give additional details about how the program operates, including the levels of review and supervisory control at the NSA and FBI. The documents also show how the program interacts with the Internet companies.

NSA has direct access to tech giants' systems for user data, secret files reveal The National Security Agency has obtained direct access to the systems of Google, Facebook, Apple and other US internet giants, according to a top secret document obtained by the Guardian. The NSA access is part of a previously undisclosed program called Prism, which allows officials to collect material including search history, the content of emails, file transfers and live chats, the document says. The Guardian has verified the authenticity of the document, a 41-slide PowerPoint presentation – classified as top secret with no distribution to foreign allies – which was apparently used to train intelligence operatives on the capabilities of the program.

Alexa is about to disappear into other devices, thanks to a new technology Today, the reason you have an Amazon Alexa sitting on your coffee table or by a couch is because it needs to be able to hear you clearly when you speak. Too near the TV and it’ll go ordering strange things, whenever someone, like South Park’s Cartman, says “Alexa!” What is required is a sophisticated technology — the so-called ‘far-field linear microphone’ —that can listen for a human voice while ignoring all the other noise around. It’s literally harder than it sounds. Now, a British firm is about to become the world’s world’s first to offer this technology and incorporate the Amazon Alexa Voice Service. XMOS, which a month ago closed a $15 million funding round led by Infineon, has become the first European chip company to release a qualified Amazon Alexa Voice Service (AVS) development kit.

Google: There Is No PRISM Back Door To Our Servers, No Open-Ended Access To User Data - TechCrunch All of the companies that are allegedly involved in the PRISM surveillance program have now issued short statements saying that they are not participating in this program and that they are not allowing the government “direct access” to their servers. Among these, of course, is Google. The company, however, also just issued a longer statement penned by its CEO Larry Page and Chief Legal Officer David Drummond. In it, Page and Drummond argue, just like in the company’s shorter statement, that Google does not give the U.S. government “direct access or a ‘back door’ to the information stored in our data centers.” A Beginner’s Guide to AI/ML □□ – Machine Learning for Humans – Medium [Update 9/2/17] This series is now available as a full-length e-book!

The widely criticized corroboration with the NSA therefore may have benefited citizens rather than being to their detriment. How PRISM Requests And Receives Private Data
