How Major Companies Are Spying on Employees with AI?

Published on

If your workplace relies on apps like Zoom, Slack, or Microsoft Teams for communication, it’s worth sharing a message like this. Many companies, especially large ones like Walmart, Delta Air Lines, T-Mobile, Chevron, Starbucks, Nestle, AstraZeneca, and more, are increasingly using artificial intelligence to monitor employee messages.

Amazon must be in this game. They developed the Alexa tech, which sits in your house and listens to what you say.

If you’re not convinced that we live in a world of “Big Brother,” take into account that “Aware,” a company that has been around for seven years, has collected more than 20 billion interactions from over 3 million employees.

If I were you, I would not post risque photos or funny jokes in the workplace:

Schumann said that clients could use anonymized data from Aware’s analytics to see how employees in a specific age group or geographic area respond to a corporate policy or marketing campaign. Aware’s AI models can identify bullying, harassment, and discrimination as well as non-compliance and pornography.

Schumann says that Aware’s analytics tool, which monitors employee sentiments and toxic behavior, cannot flag individual employees’ names. He added that its eDiscovery tool, which is separate, can flag individual employee names in cases of extreme threats, or risk behaviors predetermined by clients.

However, some American workers don’t like the idea of being watched.

“I’d feel, I don’t know, that they were just trying to get some information out of me or get me into trouble.” “I think it would be sneaky,” a woman told Fox.

“I’ve personally seen AI, that doesn’t foster a trusting business vibe,” argued another woman.

There’s always one person who watches the smoke build-up, unconcerned about a possible fire.

One man said, “I’m okay with it because I am very careful about what I do when I’m on company time or company property.”

It’s no longer a surprise that we are all used to levels of surveillance previously unimaginable, whether it is our GPS devices in our cars monitoring our every move or our online clicks being tracked somewhere in cyberspace. It’s still creepy to think that our entire office interaction could be monitored by a digital robot waiting to report us for a slightly off-color joke.

It’s important to note that almost everyone in management has great hair. I will be posting that information on our app for the office soon.

It would be remiss of me to end this article without giving a shout-out to Rockwell’s 1984 classic.
