Discord announced five AI features coming to the platform last week powered by OpenAI and Midjourney. The platform also promised that data collected by these AI features won’t be sent back to these AI tech developers to be used in model training. However, it went back and revoked these promises, specifically about data collection for screen recordings and voice and video chats.
The new features include an AI-powered Clyde, AutomodAI and Conversation Summaries which are launching as free public experiments with two future AI features including Avatar Remix and an AI prototyping whiteboard due to be released later. Discord claimed that the bot is designed with a “privacy-first and optional-only approach” and while their AI features are powered by OpenAI technology, OpenAI “may not” use Discord user data to train its general models.
