Instagram Denies Spying on User Conversations

Instagram否认监控用户对话

The head of Instagram said this week that the social networking service was not spying on conversations among Instagram users.

这周Instagram领导人员表示其社交网络服务并未监视Instagram用户之间的对话。

Some people have accused the company of listening to their microphones in order to know which advertisements to show them.

一些人谴责该公司为了了解如何向用户投放广告而监听他们的麦克风。

Adam Mosseri told the program “CBS This Morning” that Instagram does not listen to private conversations.

亚当·莫斯里告诉“哥伦比亚广播公司今晨播报”栏目,Instagram并未窃听私人对话。

"We don't look at your messages, we don't listen in on your microphone," he said. "Doing so would be super problematic for a lot of different reasons.”

“我们没有监视你们的信息,我们没有通过麦克风进行监听行为,”他表示。“这样做会因诸多因素而出现很多重大问题。”

Mosseri admitted that his claims were hard to believe.

莫斯里承认人们很难相信他的声明。

"I recognize you're not going to really believe me," he told reporter Gayle King.

“我承认你们不会真的相信我,”他告诉记者盖尔·金。

King had repeatedly asked Mosseri about how users would get ads for things they had spoken about but never searched.

金一再向莫斯里提问关于用户如何收到他们曾提到过的但是并未进行搜索的产品的广告

Mosseri gave two possible explanations.

莫斯里给出了两种可能的解释。

"There's two ways it could happen,” he said. One is luck, “which can happen."

“有两种可能的方式”,他说。“这可能发生,”一种是因为运气、巧合。

"Repeatedly?" King asked.

“这能反复发生吗?”金问道。

"The second is you might be talking about something because it's top of mind...I think this kind of thing happens often in a way that's really subtle," he later said.

“第二个可能性是你正在讨论的事物可能在你脑海里往往是最重要的……我认为这种事情往往以一种很微妙的方式发生。”他之后说。

Also on the program, King asked Mosseri about videos known as "deepfakes." A deepfake gives the appearance of an individual doing something that did not actually happen. Often, these videos are very realistic, making it difficult for viewers to know the difference.

同样在这个节目中,金问莫斯里关于“deepfakes”视频的问题。一个深度伪造视频显示个人正在做并未真正是发生的事。通常情况下,这些视频非常逼真,使得观看者很难辨别真假。

Recently, a deepfake video of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was published on Instagram. It appeared to show Zuckerberg admitting to being in possession of stolen user information. The user who posted the video noted it was not factual.

近期,一个脸书创办者马克·扎克伯格的深度伪造视频被发布在Instagram上。它显示扎克伯格承认拥有盗窃来的用户信息。发布这段视频的用户称它不是真的。

Reacting to questions about the removal of deepfakes on Ingstagram, Mosseri said the company was working on a plan of action. But he said his company would not remove the video of Zuckerberg.

回应关于移除Ingstagram上深度造假视频的问题时,Mosseri表示该公司正在制定一项行动计划。但是他表示其公司不会移除扎克伯格的视频。

"We are not going to make a one-off decision to take a piece of video down just because it's of Mark and Mark happens to run this place," he said. "We need to have defined principles and we need to be transparent about those principles."

“我们将不会做出将一个将视频移除的决定,仅仅是因为它是关于马克的视频并且马克碰巧正好运行这个网站。”他表示“我们需要有明确的原则,我们需要使这些原则透明化。”
