AI Cloud computing has recently caught the attention of numerous businesses and academic disciplines.  
It provides several types of services, Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Database as a Service (DBaaS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Despite the several benefits of the cloud, e.g., lower computing and software costs, unlimited storage capacity, data reliability, and improved performance, it has various difficulties, mainly security and privacy issues, data storage, and access policies. 
When users outsource their data to the cloud, they lose control over it. Furthermore, they have to trust the cloud provider to behave ethically in storing and managing the data.  Cloud users don’t have guarantees on the legal commitment of the cloud provider toward the outsourced, stored, and transferred data. The uncertainty and loss of control over the data in the clouds raise data privacy concerns.  
Privacy is of utmost importance in the digital world and has become vital for adopting cloud computing. The success of cloud computing and a trustworthy environment is primarily driven by cloud security and the protection of cloud users' data privacy. 
From the state of the art, we will highlight different privacy concerns in AI-Cloud and the corresponding existing privacy protection techniques. 
Keywords: privacy concern, cryptographic techniques, cloud computing, trust, privacy, standardization, privacy policies
