Apple Inc has limited ChatGPT and other external AI applications to its employees as the company develops similar technology, according to the Wall Street Journal, citing a document and people.
According to a report, Apple has advised its employees not to use Microsoft-owned GitHub’s Copilot, which automates writing software code. Apple is concerned about the disclosure of sensitive data from employees using AI programs.
ChatGPT’s creator, OpenAI, announced last month that it had added an “incognito mode” that does not save users’ chat history or use it to improve its artificial intelligence.
The way ChatGPT and other chatbots it inspired manage the data of hundreds of millions of users, commonly used to improve or “train” AI, has come under increasing scrutiny.
OpenAI introduced Apple’s ChatGPT app for iOS in the United States on Thursday morning.
Microsoft, Apple and OpenAI did not respond to Reuters’ request for comment.
