Today, Dropbox, Inc. and NVIDIA announced a collaboration to supercharge knowledge work and improve productivity for millions of Dropbox customers through the power of AI. The companies' collaboration will expand Dropbox's extensive AI functionality with new uses for personalized generative AI to improve search accuracy, provide better organization, and simplify workflows for its customers across their cloud content.

Dropbox plans to leverage NVIDIA's AI foundry consisting of NVIDIA AI Foundation Models, NVIDIA AI Enterprise software and NVIDIA accelerated computing to enhance its latest AI-powered product experiences. These include Dropbox Dash, universal search that connects apps, tools, and content in a single search bar to help customers find what they need; Dropbox AI, a tool that allows customers to ask questions and get summaries on large files across their entire Dropbox; among other AI capabilities in Dropbox.



"Recent advancements in generative AI are opening up a world of possibilities to improve knowledge work and address many of the pain points we all experience around organization, prioritization, and focus," said Drew Houston, co-founder and CEO of Dropbox. "AI has the potential to offload routine tasks, unlock our creativity, and help us do more meaningful work. We're excited to partner with NVIDIA and leverage their technology in new ways to deliver more personalized, AI-powered experiences to our customers."

"The arc of AI is expanding from cloud services into enterprise generative AI assistants that will drive the most significant transition in the computing industry to date," said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. "Together, NVIDIA and Dropbox will pave the way for millions of Dropbox customers to accelerate their work with customized generative AI applications."

AI to Transform Knowledge Work
Dropbox has long believed in the potential for AI to transform knowledge work. The company has been incorporating AI and machine learning into its core product experience for many years to help its customers do their most important work, save time, and be more efficient.

NVIDIA has built flexible tools that will allow Dropbox to deliver new AI-powered capabilities and bring more intelligence to its customers' content and workflows. Using NVIDIA AI Foundation Models and the NVIDIA NeMo framework - an end-to-end platform for building, customizing, and deploying large language models - Dropbox can customize and fine-tune LLMs to provide more personalized and relevant information with all the security controls, privacy, and transparency millions of Dropbox customers have come to rely on.

Dropbox can also increase inference performance for production AI with NVIDIA AI Enterprise software, including NVIDIA Triton Inference Server and NVIDIA TensorRT -LLM.

If Dropbox being pet of US agencies wasnt enough of a reason to avoid them like a plague here is another reason to avoid Dropbox like a scourge.
So it's better to use google drive and icloud right ?

Local at home storage that works when the internet is down, where you can ensure its safety, where redundant backups are automated and the chances of your data being "AI" assisted are nonexistant. All we need is governments deciding that a Meme can get you prison time.... oh wait, they already do that.

Yes, you can store your data any place....

But do you really ever know where that place actually is ??

I do... All my data is in that super-duper, uber-secure place here at home...I think someone, somewhere called it a "hard drive" or something like that, hehehe.... :D

And if I need to access it from somewhere other than da house, I have several of those little things called "flash drives" or something that seem to work just fine...

Only thing I found was this(Link) from US regarding someone being arrested/charged for posting a meme, in India sadly there are state governments who keep arresting people for posting memes.

Imagine a storage device that's usb based and you could carry it in your pocket.

Maybe sometime in the future well have these things.

Until then got to use dialup and dump data online.

Aaaand thats the last time I used dropbox. Thanks! Already ordered a few boxes of floppy drives to cover my needs. Still trying to work out how to transfer those over broadband, but Im still more interested in fixing that before giving Big Tech even more data to use against me.

This. People seem to forget that if you dont own your storage in the end you are gonna be stuck to a subscription to pay for storage you do not own and never will.

Never quite understood cloud logic anyway unless its for enterprise. Glad more people are starting to figure it out now. Its not cheaper, you just postponed a storage purchase by paying monthly and waving control over your data and common sense.

Hi,
Yeah the old days when MS offered free 5 or 10gb and then hopped it up to 50gb free storage then snatched it back unless you jumped through a bunch of hoops to keep the 50
This is also how drug dealers do business :laugh:

This site rates the claim as false, but then explains that a meme on Twitter is why he is in prison. So exactly who decides what comedy and.free speech are? Those you cannot laugh or make jokes of.

It is only a question of time until "disinformation" and (even worse) "malinformation" (information that they admit is true but inconvenient) is criminalized in (parts of) the West. We have already seen big steps in that direction recently.

It is also important to remember that when you store your data with a corporation('s service), it is legally no longer your data in the US and 4th amendment protections no longer apply. The corporation can decide to comply with a request from law enforcement or "national security" agencies and it is likely that they will unless the PR is exceptionally bad and there is nothing you can do about that.

Well so true and with the new microsoft agreements makes it even more attractive.

Then again people still using 2FA too, not realizing that when you use it with your phone number they 100% know who you are. Bundle with the IP address they know.


Just data collecting to the extreme.

In India social media platforms have been put on leash recently after how they behaved during 26th Jan riots last year, I was surprised US government didnt reign in social media companies post 6th Jan riots. Issues with many of these Big-Tech is they seem to be bend over backwards for US agencies(even CCP) for spying when there are no court issued warrants and then same hypocrites(who are already collecting tonnes of data) make a fuss about not complying to court issued warrants in case of terrorism related cases.

And who is going to be running this so-called "fact-checking unit" and what safeguards will there be that it will be as unbiased as possible and at least not intentionally abused? The fact that even information that has only been deemed "misleading" (which can be applied to virtually anything depending on what the "appropriate" context that is supposedly missing is according to your worldview) will be censored is very worrying. We have already seen "fact checkers" in the West twist themselves into knots to justify calling something true/fake to fit their (masters') biases and objectives.

make a fuss about not complying to court issued warrants in case of terrorism related cases.
The reason for that is that the San Bernandino case was high profile and it was easy to understand what was going on for the average Joe, which means that it would be very bad PR for Apple. Secretly giving the agencies access to their servers (like what ES revealed 10 years ago) does not cause (as much) bad PR.
