Microsoft's new technology monitors everything for our sake

Microsoft has been accused many times of spying on its customers with Windows 10. The reason or pretext according to the company is that the operating system collects some data needed to diagnose errors to help improve reliability.

The fact, however, is a mistake in the face of the new patent filed by Microsoft. If we ever see this technology in mass production, we should forget what privacy means.

The patent filed by the company is called "Query formulation via task continuum, "And essentially describes a technology that monitors everything users do on their computers, including time that works with third-party applications.microsoft privacy

As he says MSPU, this is done for the benefit of users as Microsoft tries to link third-party applications to its own services in order to provide a better search experience.

How does it work:

Basically, Microsoft claims that by tracking what users do on their computers, such as creating a document, the search engine can always be prepared for better search results. For example, if you are writing a book, Bing will know what you are interested in (from what exactly you are writing) and will be able to provide immediate results related to your work.

Microsoft mentions more detail in the patent description, explaining that the new feature will be able to collect any kind of "signal", including the texts viewed by the user, recognize the text from images, the sound of a song being played, And much more.

"The operating system monitors all text data displayed to the user by any application, and then performs grouping to determine the user's intent (from the context). The user's presumed intent is being sent as a message to search providers to improve search results ranking, providing an improved user experience, as queries and results will be more relevant to what it is trying to achieve, ”says Microsoft.

Redmond emphasizes that users will always have full control of their operation and there is no data left by the computer without their consent.

Of course we all know how these things work and how easy it is to violate our privacy.

At the moment, Microsoft does not seem to be ready to release this feature in Windows, but if at some point, we can finally say goodbye to protecting our privacy.
