When it comes to storing information, our brain can be lazy.
Chatbots with AI, however, absorb even the smallest details and learn from them. Including personal details.
Often these are identified through a device’s location or IP address, but sometimes they are actively provided. For example, when a chatbot is fed concrete information or emails to produce a text.
Now a startup from Toronto is safeguarding the private sphere. A privacy ‘layer’ replaces personal details – even from videos or pictures – with neutral placeholders before sending the encrypted request.
When the chatbot has done its work, placeholders and personal details are reinstated. The solution runs on local devices or in a private cloud.
In public, a ring might be helpful.
