(Image credit- 9to5 Mac) Apple has instructed its employees to refrain from using ChatGPT and other external AI tools as it develops its own equivalent technology and worries about the leakage of sensitive information. Apple now stands among organizations like Verizon, Amazon, and JPMorgan Chase.

Limiting the Use of AI Tools by Apple Staff

Employee access to ChatGPT and other third-party artificial intelligence products is restricted at Apple. Using these tools could expose confidential information, according to the reports, therefore the corporation decided to create its own equivalent technology and forbade the use of external models. A chatbot named ChatGPT, developed by OpenAI with funding from Microsoft, can answer questions, write essays, and carry out other duties in a manner that is similar to that of a human. Additionally, the usage of Microsoft GitHub's Copilot, which automates the writing of software code, was forbidden for employees.

An organization may mistakenly divulge secret or proprietary information through this method. Apple is renowned for its security procedures that protect customer data and information about its upcoming goods. CEO Tim Cook also acknowledged the enormous potential for artificial intelligence in the IT sector, which makes sense if the business creates its own AI tool. Cook advised being cautious when using the technology, despite his continued interest in it.

Other businesses limit the use of AI tools

According to the reports,  numerous businesses and organizations have started utilizing it for anything from creating marketing materials and emails to building software. After realizing the danger of using the models at work, a number of businesses imposed limitations that Apple adopted.
