Samsung has banned employees from using generative AI services such as ChatGPT
Samsung Electronics has banned employees in its mobile and appliances division from using generative AI services such as ChatGPT, a language model developed by OpenAI, due to concerns about security and potential use for fake news and other harmful content.
The company has also advised employees to refrain from uploading work-related information to such platforms when logging in on personal computers outside company premises.
This is the latest in a series of moves by companies to restrict the use of generated artificial intelligence services, including the ban by Goldman Sachs and the Bank of America.
The ban is a reminder that these services have the potential to be used for a variety of beneficial purposes, such as generating creative content, translating languages, and answering questions, but it is important for companies to develop policies that balance the potential benefits with the potential risks.
