Secrets worth keeping...Thinking About Using Ai and Rethinking the Potential Issues

With the recent influx of Ai , all news has not always been wonderful news. There are issues and each needs careful consideration. Take for example privacy and confidentially- have you heard how ChatGPT handles privacy and confidentially? Those are just two issues to consider and I’ll add equity, and bias and there are even more. In this post let’s look at privacy and confidentiality below. Be sure to add in your thoughts as they are always welcomed here in the LX Community.

Privacy and Confidentiality

Confidentiality and data privacy are other concerns for employers when thinking about how employees might use ChatGPT in connection with work.

There is the possibility that employees will share proprietary, confidential, or trade secret information when having “conversations” with ChatGPT.

Although ChatGPT represents that it does not retain information provided in conversations, it does “learn” from every conversation. And of course, users are entering information into the conversations with ChatGPT over the internet and there is no guarantee of security in such communications.

Confidential employer information could be impacted if revealed by an employee to ChatGPT. Prudent employers will include—in employee confidentiality agreements and policies—prohibitions on employees referring to or entering confidential, proprietary, or trade secret information into AI chatbots or language models, such as ChatGPT.

A good argument could be made that information given to a chatbot online wouldn’t necessarily be disclosure of a trade secret.
