Privacy issues have always been a matter of great importance to the public. In the era of rapid development of Internet technology, once privacy is leaked, it may be used to do anything.
On September 12th, Kai-Fu Lee said at the HICOOL Global Entrepreneurs Summit that he had helped Megvii technology companies find cooperation including Meitu and Ant Financial. Partners, let them get a lot of face data, and found several valuable commercialization directions in the subsequent exploration process.
This speech immediately exploded. Is the face data leaked randomly like this?
That night, Ant Group immediately issued a statement to clarify:Ant Group has never provided any face data to Megvii Technology, and the past cooperation between the two parties was limited to Megvii Technology’s authorized images The ability of the recognition algorithm is deployed and used by ants alone, and does not involve any data sharing and transmission; currently the two parties have no relevant business cooperation.
Megvision Technology Then issued a statement:1. In the process of customer cooperation, Megvii always respects and is committed to assisting customers to ensure data security. We do not grasp and will not actively collect any personal information of end users. This is our consistent principle. 2. Data security is the foundation of artificial intelligence companies. Megvii has always attached great importance to the issue of”data privacy security protection” and has formulated and implemented a complete data privacy protection system within the company.
To put it simply:Both companies stated that they attach great importance to user privacy, one has never provided it, and the other has never actively collected it.
Li Kaifu also posted an apology to the three companies on Weibo, saying that he had missed the word:“In the early days, I suggested and helped the Megvii team find more application partners to enhance Technical level, improve the model recognition rate.””During cooperation, Megvii provides AI technology to the partner. I understand that the data has always been stored in the partner’s client server and does not involve any data sharing and transmission.”
Although each company has issued a clarification statement Li Kaifu also apologized as a slip of the tongue. But many netizens still remain skeptical.
