Samsung bans staff from using generative AI after privacy gaffe

May 2, 2023


Samsung has banned the use of generative AI such as ChatGPT and Google’s Bard after employees in one of the company’s largest divisions reportedly uploaded internal source code to ChatGPT’s servers. The information comes from a Bloomberg report.

Samsung announced the new policy with an internal memo to employees. It bans the use of generative AI systems on company-owned phones, computers, or tablets, as well as over the internal network. Samsung also asks employees not to divulge company information with ChatGPT or similar services through their personal devices.
