Microsoft ChatGPT for Business On the Way

On today’s livestream (12:15 p.m. ET on YouTube Live), I’m going to talk about how to keep your data safe when your workforce starts including proprietary data in their ChatGPT prompts. (Get notified here.) The need for this “fix” will only be temporary, as Microsoft is planning to offer dedicated, private ChatGPT servers as early as next month. A private installation of ChatGPT (in the Azure cloud, of course) would allow a business to keep its proprietary data separate and safe. When it launches, this will be “the” product of the year.

Microsoft won’t be alone here; OpenAI has already said it’s working on its own version. The AI cloud wars will make the previous cloud compute and cloud storage wars seem quaint. I’m going to assume the path of least resistance for IT departments: AWS peeps will stay with AWS, MS peeps will stay with MS, etc., but time will tell.

I’m also going to dive deeper into voice cloning and generative AI music production, talk about Senator Markey’s proposed “Block Nuclear Launch by Autonomous Artificial Intelligence Act” legislation, and explore the concept of “default to distrust.” We’ll also take a tour of our new, free AI resource page. Get notified here.
