Microsoft Copilot+ Recall

Microsoft’s Copilot+ Recall Feature, Slack’s AI Training Controversy

Play episode

Episode 331 of the Shared Security Podcast discusses privacy and security concerns related to two major technological developments: the introduction of Windows PC’s new feature ‘Recall,’ part of Microsoft’s Copilot+, which captures desktop screenshots for AI-powered search tools, and Slack’s policy of using user data to train machine learning features with users opted in by default. Tom and Kevin express significant concerns over the implications for privacy, data security, and the potential for misuse of these features. Discussions cover the technical workings, potential vulnerabilities, and broader impacts of these technologies on privacy and security. The episode also mentions anecdotes that illustrate the practical downsides of such technologies and hints at the broader trend of companies training AI models with user data without adequate transparency or consent.
