Google Gives Itself Permission To Use Whatever You Post For Its AI

Google has quietly revised its privacy policy, making it clear that the tech behemoth now claims the prerogative to mine virtually all content you share online for the development of its AI instruments. As noted by Gizmodo, this development means that if Google can access your text, it can now seamlessly assimilate them into its data pool, with the likelihood of them being integrated into one of its chatbots. The updated policy reads, “Google uses information to improve our services and to develop new products, features and technologies that benefit our users and the public,” highlighting that publicly accessible content may be employed to train Google’s AI models. The end goal is the construction and enhancement of products such as Google Translate, Bard, and Cloud AI capabilities. Google’s revision in its policy language is noteworthy. It broadens the scope from using data exclusively “for language models” to utilizing it for “AI models.” It is also apparent that the updated policy specifies additional tools, including Bard and Cloud AI, which weren’t mentioned earlier. What sets this policy change apart is its vast departure from the norm. Privacy policies customarily stipulate how businesses utilize data generated within their own platforms. However, Google’s novel approach seemingly treats the entire internet as its vast repository for data collection to bolster AI capabilities, agnostic to the platform where the content was originally posted. At the time of this article, Google has not issued any comments. This development ushers in fresh privacy concerns.
