One TV brand could be listening to your private conversations

Elon Musk and Bill Gates have warned us about the dangers of Artificial Intelligence and the "Internet of Things." In short, our smart appliances may be just a little too smart.

In fact, I can jokingly say the robot revolution has already begun. Just earlier this week, a Roomba rebelled against its owner by sucking up her hair as she slept on the floor.

This warning from Samsung, however, is a little bit more serious. It's in regards to its new voice-recognition televisions. In short, when you give your TV a command, like “go to HBO," or "find the Grammy Awards," the TV isn’t the only thing listening. Your private conversations could be transmitted to third parties.
