The policy states that X will use the information it collects, along with publicly available data, to help train its machine learning algorithms.
Musk has confirmed this change but assures that only publicly available information will be collected, not private messages or other private data.
While X does not have any public AI ambitions, Musk himself has launched a company called xAI, which aims to understand the true nature of the universe.
It is possible that the biometric data and related information collected by X could be used to further this goal.
Another possibility is that the data could be used for X’s ambitions to compete with LinkedIn, as Musk has expressed dissatisfaction with the employment site and plans to create a “cool” alternative.
It is also worth considering that X may use the collected data for advertising purposes, although there is currently no evidence to support this.
