OpenAI Adds Former NSA Director to Its Board ➝

Ken Macon, writing for Reclaim the Net:

The inclusion of Nakasone on OpenAI’s board is a decision that warrants a critical examination and will likely raise eyebrows. Nakasone’s extensive background in cybersecurity, including his leadership roles in the US Cyber Command and the Central Security Service, undoubtedly brings a wealth of experience and expertise to OpenAI. However, his association with the NSA, an agency often scrutinized for its surveillance practices and controversial data collection methods, raises important questions about the implications of such an appointment as the company’s product ChatGPT is, through a deal with Apple, about to be available on every iPhone. The company is also already tightly integrated into Microsoft software.

I plan to disable as much of the Apple Intelligence features as I possible can. Not just because of potential privacy implications, but also because I find the entire category to be of questionable usefulness.
