The fresh language incorporated not only amends the existing policy but also spells out new implications for everything internet users post online. These online interactions and posts are fundamental in the building and refining aspects of Google's artificial intelligence. Notably, the modifications in terms of service reflect the evolving dynamics in which Google handles and uses data to improve its artificial intelligence tools.
Looking at the recent past, Google had asserted that this data would be used "for language models." Now, the updated policy reflects a shift from this earlier stance, signaling that the data would be used instead for “AI models”. This significant shift underscores Google's broadened vision and commitment to optimizing AI. The older policy had only made reference to tools such as Google Translate, and noticeably, the newer one now includes services like Bard and Cloud AI.
