Adobe Uses Your Content to Train AI

January 10, 2023

Artificial intelligence is all the rage these days. We see various forms of AI used in our lives every day. Real world data is used to train the AI algorithms to improve accuracy. Where does the training data come from? The short answer is you. Adobe found itself in the headlines when it was revealed that Adobe uses user content stored in Creative Cloud services to train AI algorithms by default. The Register reported that users will need to opt out of the service if they don’t want their data to be AI training fodder. Adobe confirmed, “When we analyze your content for product improvement and development purposes, we first aggregate your content with other content and then use the aggregated content to train our algorithms and thus improve our products and services.”

Apparently, the policy has been in place for some time, but the action isn’t sitting well with some users, especially artists. To opt out, login to your Adobe account and get to the setting for Privacy and personal data. Turn off the Allow my content to be analyzed by Adobe for product improvement and development purposes setting.
