One of the world’s largest technology companies has introduced internal restrictions to prevent confidential company information from ending up with Open AI.

In many workplaces around the world, there are probably Chat GPT tabs open in employees’ browsers right now.

Yes – provided you don’t work for iPhone maker Apple. According to the Wall Street Journal, the Chat GPT service has ended up on an internal list of software that Apple employees have “limited” access to.

The conversations can be read by Open AI’s moderators

The same type of restrictions should also apply to Microsoft-owned Github’s service Copilot. It’s an AI-based tool that can help programmers write code more efficiently, including by suggesting what code to use next.

Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, with deep sources at Apple, recently wrote in a tweet that staff use of Chat GPT has been limited “for months.”

The explanation can be found at Open AI. Namely, the Ai company stores all interaction between the users and Chat GPT. The conversations are used, among other things, for continued training of Open AI’s system, and can also be read by moderators who must ensure that users do not violate the company’s policies.

Chat GPT banned at more large companies

Apple is not the only major company that has introduced similar bans. JP Morgan, Amazon and telecom operator Verizon also restrict staff access to Chat GPT, reports the site The Verge.
