Evidently. Actual "AI" - or better "machine learning" - is based on feeding to software huge amounts of data. Who has the most data to train systems have a competitive advantage.

I'm not surprised they stored the data whatever they say in their ToS or privacy pages - and that's why they need to be regulated. Chinese companies may hoard a lot of data, but they will be limited by the fact that those data will be mostly Chinese - hardly a competitive advantage.

Anyway, Alexa is on its road of becoming a telescreen, and the next Facebook.
