Speaker anonymization solution for public voice-assistant interactions – Presentation of a Work in Progress Development

Ingo Siegert

The use of voice assistants has rapidly grown and they can be found in millions of households. And a lot of effort has be made by researchers to improve the usage of these systems. One issue that remains open is the usage of voice assistants and recording of interactions for research purposes in public environments due to privacy concerns. Although data collections, offering unconstrained, unscripted public interactions are quite rare and mainly only focus on transcribed content or have focused on private usage, short pre-defined tasks or specific domains. The current paper presents an approach on how voice data recordings of user interactions with voice assistants in a public space can be recorded and processed in conformity with the GDPR.
