The company is working on its own AI system
The Wall Street Journal has read a document in which the company expresses concern that these AI platforms are collecting sensitive data from employees. In addition to ChatGPT, Apple has also banned its employees from using Copilot GitHub, which is owned by Microsoft. With Copilot, developers can automate coding.
Apple bans employees from using ChatGPT
ChatGPT, which is also maintained by Microsoft, sends data to developers so they can continue to improve the AI models used by the platform. According to The Wall Street Journal, the March bug allowed users to see the chat history of other ChatGPT users. Following this incident, ChatGPT added the ability to allow users to disable chat history and not participate in AI model training.
If Apple engineers use these platforms, there is no guarantee that the information you enter, including codes, will not end up with someone else. The same applies to other sensitive information as employees can use ChatGPT to write emails, for example.
JPMorgan Chase and Verizon have also restricted the use of such platforms. Amazon asked its engineers to use their own in-house AI tool rather than third-party ones.
The Wall Street Journal adds that Apple is working on its own artificial intelligence model.
