Given the privacy concerns, lawmakers are worried that the always-on device could build an "in-depth profile of children and their family."
Why is it an issue if a solution internally builds an in-depth profile of children and their family? please explain the perceived damage. Is this more about what the advancement makes people THINK a product that looks like this may be capable of, due to cultural reasons, than what it actually does?
I mean: Practically speaking, privacy is something children don't have in the first place --- parents and teachers can literally see ANYTHING the child does and exercise almost absolute control of their activities, should they so wish, and the product is doing nothing more than becoming an extension of the parents.... So why should this be any more a privacy `risk' to the kid, than the general risk of having a parent?
It's not like they're doing anything TRULY risky like putting the child's Social Security Number in a massive database with all their financial+housing information, and then being negligent in securing their database, *cough* *Equifax* *cough*
