Training our services with real world requests from a diverse range of customers helps us to respond properly to the variation in our customers’ speech patterns, dialects, accents, and vocabulary and the acoustic environments in which customers use our services. This training relies in part on supervised machine learning, an industry-standard practice where humans review a sample of requests to help understand the correct interpretation of a request and provide the appropriate response in the future. Our supervised learning process includes multiple safeguards to protect customer privacy. You can turn off our use of your voice recordings to develop new features and our manual review of your voice recordings to help improve Amazon services by visiting the settings panel in the SayHi app.
