How to stop Meta from using some of your personal data to train generative AI models

Meta updated its help resource center with a form that gives users some control over what personal data is used to train generative artificial intelligence models.

The form doesn’t account for data on Facebook properties, such as Facebook comments and Instagram photos.

Last week, a consortium of global data protection agencies issued a joint statement about data scraping and protecting people’s privacy to companies including Meta, Alphabet and Microsoft. https://www.cnbc.com/2023/08/30/how-to-stop-meta-from-using-personal-data-to-train-generative-ai-.html

What's the point of using chatGPT to write stuff that's completely biased? What do you have to gain unless you're too busy to write your own papers or do your job.

While many positions like research and data analysis are in line for AI automation, for example, companies will still need someone to prompt the AI, make sense of the results and take action.

“My advice for anyone is to understand how AI could impact your position in your industry right now,” Toothacre said. “At least you have an idea of what to potentially expect versus having no idea what’s going on.”

The numbers are mind-boggling. DeepMind built a model called Chinchilla and trained it with 1.4 trillion tokens. That huge training set enabled Chinchilla to outperform OpenAI’s GPT-3 (which was trained for 300 billion tokens) despite the fact that GPT-3 had more than twice as many parameters (175 billion) as Chinchilla (70 billion).

In short, to make powerful language models, you need a lot of computing power and you also need a lot of data. Which raises an important question: could we run out of training data?

If I was brain dead and unable to think for myself, maybe, just maybe chat gpt would have a very, very small place in my life. After going through the A/I assistant with an insurance company yesterday, the A/I revolution is about the most retarded invention ever. You can have it. I will NEVER need it to survive and live quite well.

Thanks for the link.

Made an account. Wish I hadn’t.

The answers it gives about academic questions , middle school questions, covid questions, vaccine questions, all crap.

At least it’s good at chess.
