‘In the last 12 months, AI has become part of our everyday conversations. Large language models like ChatGPT and AI image generator tools like Stable Diffusion are now accessible by almost anyone and have proven to be immensely powerful platforms for numerous tasks.
‘These technologies are not without their drawbacks. In May 2023 Forbes reported that Samsung has forbidden its teams from using these AI services after it was discovered that the code they were asking the tool to optimize was being stored in the tool’s servers and theoretically could be shared with other users as part of their solutions.

While it cannot be denied that generative AI is changing the way businesses – and people – operate, its impact is still largely unknown. What we do know is that risks change and grow quickly, demanding a smart, speedy response.
