It’s a ‘witch hunt’ to investigate a claim that Amazon’s Alexa bot has been targeting people

The New York Times reports that Amazon has been investigating a claim from a former employee that Amazon was using Alexa’s personal information to target people with negative reviews.

Alexa has been accused of using the data to track users and push negative reviews, and the company says it is working to “stop this activity.”

Amazon has denied the allegation, and has said that it is “working to stop this activity and to prevent similar behavior from happening again.”
