Adobe is collecting all of its customers’ pictures to train its machine learning algorithm | AlternativeTo

It was first reported a couple of days ago by Baldur Bjarnason on Mastodon, and also on Twitter by the popular painting program Krita, that “Adobe is collecting all of its customers’ pictures into a machine learning training set”.

Durante el estallido, Mena generó polémica tras asegurar que hubo “desaparecidos”, lo que resultó ser falso.
