Paywalled. I thought ChatGPT “forgets” whatever it learned from you once your chat session ends?

*Some Amazon staff already use ChatGPT as a ‘coding assistant’*

Anything sent to chatgpt should be assumed to be public information don’t share anything you would not want to be public

Me: I need to urinate, but I’m on the clock and my break isn’t for two more hours. What do I do?

ChatGPT: Go in a bottle.

Amazon: Quit giving away corporate secrets! >:(

I treat anything i send to chatgpt as public. People keep talking about using chatgpt to code but you’re essentially sending proprietary information to unknown actors.

Given that most FAANG engineers use StackOverflow a lot and grind the same leetcode exercises for months before they get hired, I think it would be surprising if there weren’t similarities in existing code. I might be wrong, but I don’t think there is enough data coming from Amazon devs to seriously impact the way the machine learning model works.

ChatGPT used as bargaining leverage for workers. Negotiate or your business dies.

This is a policy with all companies you don’t share confidential information

Chat gpt is going to wreck so many things it’s just hoovering information and getting smarter 😂. It’s fascinating to watch happen in real time.

According to ChatGPT, it doesn’t actually store any conversation data, and it cannot learn from conversations

I’ve used some generic queries with it and what it returns sometimes felt like a vaguely-related template from a random company.

At first I thought “no way people are uploading internal docs just like that”. Then again, I know employees have used their work laptop, that signs in to the company VPN, that logs into Chrome with their company email, access their personal Whatsapp to share stuff about work with other people. Oh and access porn too.

Well duh! Perhaps not sharing confidential information with ANYONE might be better guidance.

This is a program that has a function of using everything it knows to create stories for other people. In other words, it spills its guts.

If you tell it something, that’s one more thing it knows.

So maybe you shouldn’t tell it where you buried bodies.

“Closely”, “ressemble”

Why create something so few people will read when AI can make it for you based on your notes and you can go play golf?

No way to prove this ever.

Ah, shit! Probably should have given it my SSN.

redEPICSTAXISdit

Wouldn’t it be illegal to share confidential information in the first place period regardless of whom or what it is shared to?
