Google has revised its privacy policy, aiming to utilize publicly accessible data to train its AI models. The company replaced the term ‘language models’ with ‘AI models’ and stated that it could allow the use of public data to build features and full products such as Google Translate, Bard, and Cloud AI capabilities. Through its policy update, Google informs its users that any content they publicly share on the internet may be utilized for training Bard, its upcoming iterations, and any other generative AI products created by Google. Critics have expressed doubts regarding companies using publicly available online data to train their expansive language models for generative AI applications, such as the lawsuit against OpenAI over alleged data theft.
