We’re back with an update on AI: It’s about ChatGPT’s new tier and upcoming AI regulation.

ChatGPT new tier

On August 28th, OpenAI announced the launch of ChatGPT Enterprise. It’s their “enterprise-grade security and privacy” tier.

On this tier, OpenAI confirms they will not train on Enterprise customers’ business data & conversations or learn from their usage.

They also announce that ChatGPT Enterprise is SOC 2 compliant and all conversations are encrypted in transit and at rest.

So with this new tier, it seems like OpenAI sees the value and importance in offering a special privacy & security plan (and would like to monetise it 🙂).

What settings have turned “off” when using ChatGPT?

ChatGPT's default use of input data to train their data models has been one of the biggest concerns.

So if you’re using ChatGPT, upgrading to the “Enterprise” version can solve this issue.

But if upgrading isn’t an option, remember - even if you use the "Free" or "Plus" version of ChatGPT - you can opt-out from the use of your data for training purposes.

How to do that? You just need to change your account settings. And then toggl off “chat history & training”. It’s “on” by default..

Other tips when using ChatGPT

A few other things to keep in mind when using ChatGPT:

  • Never put any personal data into ChatGPT;
  • Never put customer information into ChatGPT;
  • Always check and verify ChatGPT responses;
  • For better quality results, consider using ChatGPT 4 (i.e. "Plus" or "Enterprise” versions) - it’s better than version 3.5;
  • Remember to create AI Guidelines for your company’s usage of ChatGPT.

Under the draft AI Act, ChatGPT is considered a general purpose AI system which can be used for multiple purposes, including high-risk ones. So expect a lot of transparency requirements to be rolled out (if/when the AI Act is passed).

The EU AI Act is progressing

The EU is progressing with the adoption of the AI Act. The act will introduce a regulatory and legal framework for the use of all types of AI in the EU.

The talks are currently with EU countries in the Council and they are discussing the final form of the law. The aim is to reach an agreement by the end of this year.

The AI Act is being lobbied a lot.
