THE BIG INSIGHT
Employees want ChatGPT at work. Bosses don’t.
Generative AI tools like ChatGPT are all the rage for productivity nerds, but tech giants like Apple, Spotify, Verizon, and Samsung aren’t the biggest fans when it comes to using these tools at work.
And they might have a point. Companies are afraid of a potentially catastrophic scenario where an employee unwittingly uploads valuable or sensitive information into ChatGPT — like code for their product or notes from a board meeting.
To cater to these privacy issues, OpenAI has provided private mode features to prevent sensitive data training. But businesses remain skeptical for the time being.
While some companies are banning AI tools outright, others are adopting guidelines for acceptable use. And experts forecast that many companies will eventually integrate generative AI into their operations, as they come into competition with startups built on these tools.
