Alexa IS listening to your conversations: Web giant ADMITS clips are analysed by Amazon workers - including your most intimate moments

Amazon workers are listening to private and sometimes disturbing voice recordings from Alexa to improve the voice-assistants' understanding of human speech.

The company has admitted to its customers that thousands of recordings are being analysed by staff and transcribed before feeding them back into the software.

As many as 1,000 clips are reviewed by workers in buildings all over the world, many of which do not bear any obvious indication that they are run by Amazon.

Among more sinister content the workers have heard, have been a child screaming for help and two instances were they believed they heard a sexual assault taking place.
