AMERICA UNCOVERED

Toys are SPYING on Us

An AI Barbie doll that interacts with kids may seem fun and cute to some. But how does Barbie remember a kid's name and where is that data being stored? And if Barbie is connected to the internet, what's to stop hackers from hacking her and controlling what she says? Or simply listening in on a family's private conversation? In this episode of America Uncovered, we look at the security, privacy and ethical issues surrounding smart toys, toys that are connected to the internet and / or use artificial intelligence to make them more interactive.
