Microsoft bans reverse engineering, data scraping of AI services

Share post:

Microsoft has updated its terms of service to prohibit users from reverse engineering or harvesting data from its AI software.

The new policies, which will come into effect on September 30, also state that users cannot use the AI services to create, train, or improve other AI services.

Microsoft says the changes are necessary to protect its intellectual property and ensure the responsible use of its AI services. It also said that it will store inputs passed into its AI products as well as any output generated. This means that Microsoft will be able to collect data on how users interact with its AI services.

In addition, Microsoft says users will be held accountable for addressing any third-party claims arising from their use of AI services in compliance with pertinent regulations.
