Privacy at Other Companies
Privacy is an easy word to use and a difficult thing to accomplish. The tech giants that control vast amounts of consumer data are moving away from data privacy. This is because their business model treats customer data as the product -- selling your information for advertisements is how they make their money. That trend toward less privacy is something we stand firmly in opposition to. As a start-up, we have the opportunity to build innovative technology in the right way. We are putting our time, energy and money into making privacy the heart and soul of your AI. We believe that you are not the product - which is why we will begin charging for our services once we are no longer in beta. Check out the Privacy at Personal AI and Privacy in the Future sections to learn more about how you’re being protected now, and the level of security we are working towards building.
Privacy at Personal AI
At Personal AI, our users own their own data, now and forever. What does this mean in terms of your AI? If you don’t like what is in your private Memory Stack, you can remove it. Our job is to make sure your data, that you control, is secure. Currently, your data is secured at rest and in transit in cloud storage, with industry standard encryptions on top of it. You can think of this encryption as a lock that keeps your data safe. Furthermore, your data is only used to train your AI, and will never be used to train somebody else’s AI. In the future, we’re committed to giving you even more control and privacy over your data through blockchain technology. Check out Privacy in the Future to find out how we’re planning to do that.
Personal AI Privacy in the Future
At Personal AI, privacy begins and ends with total user ownership of data. This isn’t just transparency, it is control of your data. That’s why we are partnering with Oasis Labs, in order to keep all your memories private and secure on blockchain. Building your AI with this level of privacy now prevents our company from ever accessing your information in the future. How does this work?
- Decentralized Identity: We are building your virtual identity on blockchain, which means that your data will be kept anonymous from your virtual identity.
- Guaranteed ownership: We are working to build our security so that only you have access to your individual information. We are building your virtual identity on blockchain, which means that your data will be secured by unique keys on the chain. We are working to get those into your hands, that way you can feel good knowing that you have complete ownership and control of your data.
- Separation between Data and Computing: We are building our technology so that your data is never kept with other users’ data, either at rest or in transit.
