Masters of the Universe: Google Says It Will Scrape Everything Posted Online to Train AI


by Lucas Nolan, Breitbart:

Google has announced that it now reserves the right to scrape virtually all content posted online to enhance its AI tools. The internet giant’s privacy policy now doesn’t just describe how the Masters of the Universe will use all your personal data in its products to generate ad revenue, but also explains it considers the entire internet fair game for its relentless data collection systems.

Gizmodo reports that Google’s updated privacy policy has raised eyebrows in the tech world. The tech giant has made it clear that it reserves the right to use almost everything posted online to build and train its AI tools.
