Zoom Terms of Service Update: Zoom fans are still figuring out what to do after a rough week. Zoom supported work-from-home during the flu pandemic, which worries people. Zoom claimed it would motivate workers to return. Recent TOS violations garnered attention.
StackDiary’s post regarding Zoom’s terms of service change started this. The modification suggested AI systems may access user data without privacy concerns.
According to Zoom TOS 10.4, Zoom can use Customer Content for new products and services, marketing, data analytics, quality assurance, machine learning, artificial intelligence, training, testing, and upgrading goods and services. This license is free and available worldwide.
“Machine learning,” “artificial intelligence,” “training,” and “testing” make all social media users uneasy. Zoom users complained and threatened to cancel.
Zoom promptly posted a reassuring blog. The company says it doesn’t train AI models on audio, video, or chat content without client consent. Zoom demonstrated its AI training with the Zoom IQ Meeting Summary and Team Chat Compose capabilities. Tools are free for subscribers.
Zoom executives say consumers improve the product with generative AI and trade data. Here, audio, video, and chat are misused.
Washington, DC-based International Association of Privacy Professionals Managing Director Cobun Zweifel-Brown lives. During the unrest, Keegan discussed TOS and AI. He stated the firms want terrifying documentation.
AI disputes generally include transparency and user agreement. Public data for AI training raises crucial problems. Should clients know their algorithms will be trained on their data before approval?
Zweifel-Keegan said account holders had to choose worsened the situation. Business should teach AI ethics. Customers can opt out of sharing data with AI algorithm businesses.
AI must be more assertive and precise as more people use it—today’s digital world values data protection and use. Companies must notify customers of service changes as AI becomes increasingly popular. Future user rights and new ideas must be balanced.
