A “smart” Barbie doll that can have “conversations” with children should not go on sale, privacy advocates have said.

Billed as the world’s first “interactive doll”, the toy uses voice recognition technology similar to that employed by Apple’s Siri and Google’s Now digital assistants to understand what a child is saying to Barbie and respond.

However, privacy advocates are worried about the use of voice recognition technology that sends recordings of children to third-party companies for processing, potentially revealing his or her intimate thoughts and details.

“If I had a young child, I would be very concerned that my child’s intimate conversations with her doll were being recorded and analysed,” said Professor Angela Campbell of Georgetown University law school.

“In Mattel’s demo, Barbie asks many questions that would elicit a great deal of information about a child, her interests, and her family. This information could be of great value to advertisers and be used to market unfairly to children.”

David Cameron will place Britain’s GCHQ eavesdropping agency and the National Crime Agency (NCA) at the centre of a fight to eliminate “digital hiding places for child abusers”.

 

A new joint NCA-GCHQ specialist unit is to be established to crack down on paedophiles who are using the so-called “dark web” to disguise their identities and to encrypt illegal images of children that they share with peers in what the prime minister describes as a “horrific crime”.

 

In a speech on Thursday to the #WeProtect Children online global summit in London, Cameron will say that the new joint unit will combine the technical skills of GCHQ with the investigatory expertise of the NCA to analyse child abuse images hidden on the “dark web”.
