AI girlfriend

Don’t Trust Your AI Girlfriend or Boyfriend, Exposing US Government Data Collection

Play episode

In Episode 319, Tom and Kevin discuss the potential data privacy risks associated with having an AI ‘girlfriend’ or ‘boyfriend’ and why one should refrain from sharing their personal data with such AIs. They engage in a humorous conversation about the unusual advertisements these AI companions attract, while expressing concerns over their deceptive and sensitive data gathering. The episode also explores the controversial issue of the U.S. government collecting vast amounts of consumer data. Allegedly, the government acquires data from various sources including cell phones, social media, and internet ad exchanges, potentially for surveillance purposes. Tom and Kevin argue that such practice is an abuse of the system, potentially bypassing laws meant to protect the innocent, and opens up a possibility for misuse by government employees.
