OpenAI CTO Mira Murati defended her company's new partnership with Apple against criticism from Elon Musk, who called it "creepy spyware". Murati said OpenAI cares deeply about user privacy and that the technology will not be used for surveillance. Under the deal, OpenAI's AI can answer complex queries for Apple users that Apple's own AI cannot while ensuring no user data is shared with OpenAI. Musk criticized Apple's data privacy practices in their OpenAI partnership, tweeting that Apple has "no clue" what’s actually going on once they hand user data to OpenAI. Murati emphasized OpenAI is focused on transparency and that misunderstandings pose the biggest risk.
