ChatGPT Français

This article discusses Meta's Quest headsets collecting anonymized user data. While perhaps legally permissible, increased oversight is advised as AI like ChatGPT gains more access to private information. Strict data protocols could help ensure user privacy is respected as advanced systems continue to be developed. Overall, important to consider how emerging tech like ChatGPT ethically handles sensitive data from products like Quest.


"1 in 3...monthly active users..." Once again quoting stats from an artcle almost 18 months out of date.
In the last 12 months the Quest 2 and 3 has become the most popular headset in use for VR, worldwide it's sold almost the same number of units in the last 3 years as the latest Xbox X console and as someone else has pointed out previously, amongst (male) console gamers the monthly usage stats are generally on par.
As for usage of data, how is it different to Apple with for example, sensor data "This may include metrics and estimates derived from iOS, watchOS, or other paired sensors. For example, high-fidelity measurements of your face positions and expressions (such as the occurrence of eyebrow raises or pressing your lips together) or characteristics of your voice (such as volume, tenor, pitch, and cadence)." or Microsoft using collected voice data? "For instance, with your permission and for the purpose of improving our speech recognition technologies, we manually review short snippets of voice data that we have taken steps to de-identify." (they can share that with third parties too)
You trust them or you don't, but to single out Meta yet again for this type of thing, a practice that's actually pretty standard and common is getting pretty tiring.

Prompt Facile

That's why I would choose Apple products for their privacy respect instead or other brands like Meta.
