Apple has banned its employees from using artificial intelligence (AI) chatbots such as ChatGPT and other tools, according to company internal documents seen by The Wall Street Journal (WSJ), over fears that employees could expose sensitive company information. may reveal information.
Apple has told its employees not to use OpenAI’s ChatGPT or Microsoft-owned GitHub’s Copilot, which automates writing software code, according to the outlet.
Since it was opened to the public last year, this type of generative AI is often used to write emails, presentation text, and even programs.
Difference between ChatGPT, Bing and Google AI responses
Apple is known for being very secretive about its projects and being extremely strict about its security to protect information about future products.
According to the WSJ, Apple is also working on its own Language Model (LLM) to train its own AI.
iPhone makers are not the only ones who have imposed this restriction on their employees.
For its part, fellow tech giant Amazon has urged its engineers who want to use ChatGPT for coding assistance to use their own internal AI tools. And companies like JPMorgan Chase and Verizon have banned the use of these devices altogether.
But there are also cases now, such as New York City schools, that previously vetoed these devices and now choose to integrate AI into the curriculum.
