Turing raised the question: Can machines think? He suggested that something “resembling thinking” could be achieved if we provide the machine with the best sense organs that money can buy, and then teach it to understand and speak English. This is the main reason why we call modern machines with some imitation capacity smart devices.

Today, a new generation of speaking devices interact with us in human-like ways to execute simple tasks and answer questions, and not only in English. How is this possible?

They are nevertheless faced with the specific risks that the cloud computing paradigm involves and remain fully responsible regarding their data protection obligations. For cloud services, the EU institutions should ensure an equivalent level of protection of personal data as for any other type of IT infrastructure model.
