The General Data Regulation (GDPR) introduced the "right to be forgotten", which empowers individuals to request that their personal data is erased. The enactment of this regulation has sparked debates about the collection, storage, and usage of data, as well as the level of control the public should have over their personal data. One aspect that is often overlooked in the discussion of digital privacy is the control of data once it is fed into artificial intelligence (AI) and machine-learning algorithms. Recommendation engines such as those that suggest videos, purchases, and more, use AI trained on customer or user data. The question arises as to how AI can be taught to forget data. This article continues to discuss AI systems' inability to forget data and how this poses a threat to privacy.
