Why would anyone not think a "free" product isn't being used to comb through their data to use that same data down the road (for enhancements, training, etc.)...

are people that naive to think someone isn't ever going to read chatbot/bing data at some point?

No, but there's a big difference between an algorithm aggregating the interactions of thousands of users, spitting out reports like "people between the ages of 18-27 are interested in _____." and humans reading the exact prompts that are being typed in.

Why? I mean fundamentally, sure, but why are you entering anything into an AI chatbot that you wouldn't want its creator to have? How do they guarantee the AI is properly generating those data reports without making sure it actually understands what is being said? What makes this a big deal?

This seems like a non-issue and a non-story to me. Security fears? Stop typing important shit into it.

I do see a debatable difference, but I wouldn’t call it a big difference. It should be expected that if your data is being mined, someone may be reading what you type.

No that should NOT be expected. Holy fuck raise your bar for expectations from a fucking Company dude.

lower your expectations for real life

It literally says right under the chat field "Free Research Preview. Our goal is to make AI systems more natural and safe to interact with. "

How exactly do you think it's learning?

Has anyone cared to glance at ToS to see what the official position on said situation might be?

Au contraire! In Europe, citizens ARE protected. In the U.S., politicians are spineless and either don't have a clue (dumb as shit) or don't care. American citizens don't know or don't care that they are the commodity. This populace is being used to feed the machine (corporations/politicians), its cannibalism!

Aight. Well I can report you, and a Reddit employee may read your post. So maybe follow your own advice and get the hell of this website lol

It’s basically the same thing, as long as your input is saved in a database of a free app you should lose all hope that your data is protected

People already forgotten that Cortana, Siri and Alexa are always listening and 3rd party contractors (those people who are paid very little and dont care if they are fired) have access to these audio prompts.

ChatGPT recording your text prompts is the last thing we need to worry about now.

What’s with this notion of it only being done by “free” products. Just because it’s paid doesn’t mean they don’t do the same.

The point with "free" is generally, we, the humans, are the product then (i.e., search exists to serve us ads so we are influenced to buy things / click ads, Facebook exists to sell us ads, and chatgpt is free, so they can gain more data on what people are using/typing in, so they can make it better, etc.).

Whereas with paid (like Netflix), the product is the entertainment and user satisfaction with said entertainment; as they switch to ads, it becomes more how can we convince/hook people in to watch as much content as possible so we can continue to serve them ads (the same way youtube works), and then you optimize for more ads not less until finally people have had enough of it and pay a premium (sort of like pandora where you have so many ads it makes the experience almost unbearable when free; imo)
