Hello all, and happy Thursday!  

Several of our stories this week focus on generative AI and the technology’s data protection implications. 

The explosion in generative AI technologies may have felt sudden, but technology grows at an exponential rate. If anything, this is just the beginning. 

What stands out to me is the timing of this explosion in AI technology. Had it happened just a few years earlier, the regulatory landscape would be lightyears behind the data privacy implications of AI—possibly so far behind, it might never have been able to catch up.  

What would today’s AI solutions look like with unfettered access to the world’s personal data? More advanced? Probably. More invasive? There’s no need to speculate on that point—we can just look at examples of AI firms that pushed the envelope too far, like Clearview AI. 

We all know that the genie doesn’t go back in the bottle. So, if you care about data privacy, let’s be thankful that data privacy regulations came into the world before this most recent uptick in AI tech.
