After learning that these services were being abused, Samsung is limiting employee access to so-called generative artificial intelligence technologies like ChatGPT.
The South Korean tech giant revealed to CNBC on Tuesday that it is temporarily limiting the use of generative AI on its laptops.
Employees of one of Samsung’s main departments were told of the change in a memo at the end of April after there had been incidents of technological misuse.
On Tuesday, Bloomberg revealed that some employees had uploaded private code to ChatGPT.
A popular AI chatbot named ChatGPT can respond to user queries after being trained on vast volumes of data. It embodies so-called generative AI in some way.
Samsung currently doesn’t have a generative AI product. Other generative AI solutions include Google’s Bard, which is developed by American company OpenAI and supported by Microsoft. Companies concerned about leaks of important information may have reservations about entering critical company information into these foreign-owned platforms.
