I am concerned about privacy, but not phobic. Databases/AI may produce important breakthroughs. Establishing quality databases is crucial. I wonder how accurate all those files are on me(?) 🤠
PS: Thanks for the tip, Xavier!
I too have been doing this for the last 5 or so years. The information they supply has been insightful. We can even synch up our FitBits!!
