Slack may be training its AI off of your messages l TechCrunch Minute

    🧢 stop being alarmist. Their privacy policy and response was bad, but don’t tell me they may be using it to train AI when they clearly aren’t. People like you are making this harder to parse through.

    these are times where companies need to make clear

    Slack could very well be using AI on
    usage patterns to train their systems to be better at performing tasks for individual customers

    vs

    learning from private
    customer confidential content, to train general LLMs at Q&A or conversation
    shared across
    (that which we fear)

    I recognize the mentality for when you’re opted in by default with no settings slider or button for opting out, rather you must send an e-mail to a certain address found in a privacy policy that only a rare poindexter would ever read.
    What’s the word for that mindset… Oh, Louis Rossmann, where are you when I need you.

    Don’t forget there are almost always a little spicy “addition ” to these terms of use stating that ” some of our workers may be manually looking through learningdata you provided” so in plain terms if you opt in someone can look through all your logs manually for arbitrary reasons like “check if our terms of use are breached by a specific phrase” etc. This makes most apps for me unusable for important things.
