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.

Very Few People Are Using AI Products Like ChatGPT ➝

We have a couple of projects at work that utilize AI and I will occasionally get useful information from Brave Search’s AI-powered answers tool. But aside from that, I don’t use any AI products at all. I think the tech is barely functional for the vast majority of proposed use cases.

GPTBot ➝

OpenAI:

Web pages crawled with the GPTBot user agent may potentially be used to improve future models and are filtered to remove sources that require paywall access, are known to gather personally identifiable information (PII), or have text that violates our policies. Allowing GPTBot to access your site can help AI models become more accurate and improve their general capabilities and safety. Below, we also share how to disallow GPTBot from accessing your site.

You can block access to sites using robots.txt. But as far as I’m concerned, the jury’s still out as to whether that’s actually a net-benefit when compared to just letting them index your content.
