Top ChatGPT concerns and how to use AI properly to boost performance

Christoph. C. Cemper, Founder and CEO Head of AI prompt management tool, AIPRM, shared his insights, “I understand that some may be fearful of the unpredictable outcomes of using AI in the workplace, especially the concerns over cyber security risks when it comes to a new technology. However, AI itself isn’t the risk, instead, it has been found to boost business performance as long as there is good control over the tool.

“The first priority concern many users may have is the potential security risks, and whilst generative AI could be misused by malicious perpetrators who wish to access data and cause damage, using antivirus software and secure file-sharing, your workplace computer system will be protected. Although, a key factor is ensuring that you are consistently up to date with the latest advancements in the technology sector. This will help improve the understanding of the capabilities, limitations and risks that AI holds.

Further concerns

“Another issue is the legalities of the ever-developing technology. Using AI-generated content can lead to accidentally infringing existing intellectual property, which in turn, may lead to copyright or infringement claims. Moreover, to prevent any such claims or GDPR fines, businesses should be able to verify how training data is obtained and verify that their AI supplier has a lawful legal basis to process data.

“The final main concern that users tend to highlight is the risk of misinformation. As many may know, generative AI is great at producing misinformation and can help those who are looking to actively mislead others. However,  the advanced technology can also help identify ‘fake news’ by matching the contents with trusted sources to highlight any errors or deceiving information.”
