Apple Restricts Usage of AI Chatbot ChatGPT
In a bid to protect confidential company data, tech giant Apple has recently restricted the usage of the popular AI chatbot ChatGPT among its employees.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the iPhone developer had issued an internal document to its staff, banning the use of ChatGPT and other similar AI tools. This is in the wake of the ChatGPT app being released for iOS in the Apple app store on May 18.
The document also included a restriction on GitHub’s AI tool Copilot, a Microsoft-owned application that automates writing software code.
Other tech giants have also taken similar measures. On May 2, Samsung sent a memo to its employees banning the use of generative AI tools such as ChatGPT. This followed an incident in which Samsung staff uploaded a “sensitive code” to the platform. The company warned employees that any use of such applications on personal devices must not involve uploading any company information; otherwise, they could face “disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.”
JPMorgan, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and Citigroup are some of the other companies that have also banned the internal use of generative AI tools like ChatGPT.
Apple CEO Time Cook revealed that the tech giant is currently in the process of creating its own AI applications. He noted that the company plans to “weave” AI into its products.
The use of AI chatbots has become increasingly popular within the web3 space, with many businesses leveraging them to promote their NFTs and other crypto products. AI chatbots can be used for marketing purposes, such as engaging with customers on social media platforms like Twitter. Some companies have even gone as far as hiring an NFT marketing agency to help them with their NFT promotion and marketing efforts.
The trend of banning the usage of AI chatbots among employees has shown that companies are taking data security seriously. It is also a sign that businesses are investing in developing their own AI technology to ensure that their confidential data remains secure.Disclaimer: All investment or financial opinions expressed by MoonLanding Media are not recommendations and are intended for entertainment purposes only.
