Amid an ongoing showdown between the West and Russia, a scrutiny of Alice, an artificial intelligence assistant launched by a company linked to Kremlin, shows how privacy matters and regulations remain a distant priority for Moscow.

Unlike Siri and Alexa, their Russian counterpart developed by Yandex, faces virtually no hurdles from regulations related to user-data collection and enjoys almost a freehand in using that data, writes Fast Company.

While Alice displays a little more creativity than Siri, it isn’t as reliable on accuracy or at striking a conversational tone.
