  • Round 1 | Position: For
    I will argue position that the robot creates a privacy concern that just isn't worth it.  If you get the robot, sure it will be a cool gadget, but do you really want someone watching your mood 24/7?  
    What is the impact of this information is hacked.  At a very minimum it would be a major potential embarrassment if posted online.

    While likely millennials and even younger generations tend to trade off convienience for privacy, having Amazon have so much data about your personal habits is disturbing.  We still don't know how Amazon would use or sell this data to better target you for shopping and etc.

    The 1984 Orwellian society is coming, where all gadgets in your house record every move or emotion? No thanks!

    No, they might not save the information that is recorded.

  • Round 2 | Position: For
    @joecavalry, just because they might not save the information, it doesn't fully mitigate privacy concerns:
    1) we dint know for sure how much of it will be saved
    2) it may be used for targeted advertising by amazon and 3rd parties
    3) it may get hacked and information streamed elsewhere or data stolen

  • Round 3 | Position: For
    In my closing round I will smmarize key points.
    we still don't know what Amazon will do with information.
    It can get hacked, and stolen
    there is just a general feelimb of uncomfort knowing that you are being watched and the data maybe saved forever by government, big/small corps, and criminals.
