Imagine making a smoothie with various ingredients, only for a friend to demand one specific ingredient back after blending. This analogy embodies the challenges faced when integrating data into AI models like ChatGPT. As AI’s influence grows, particularly with tools like OpenAI’s ChatGPT, understanding potential risks becomes essential before direct enterprise adoption. In this talk, Jerry explores the risks of incorporating ChatGPT directly into business operations, emphasizing the importance of open alternatives and approaches for maintaining trustworthy AI solutions.

Highlighting the evolution of AI tools, we recognize ChatGPT’s ability to harness the immense power of GPT-3 and GPT-4, catering to numerous AI applications. The world of AI chatbots is rapidly expanding, with Google’s Bard and Meta’s LLaMA2 as key competitors.

However, the adoption of ChatGPT directly into enterprises presents multifaceted risks. These range from potential security breaches, liability issues, intellectual property complexities, open-source license violations, to limitations on AI development. Such concerns emphasize the criticality of being vigilant with ChatGPT usage in businesses.

Exploring solutions to these concerns, Jerry demonstrates aspects of IBM’s watsonx as an emerges as a viable contender. Its features —,, and watsonx.governance — offer a transparent approach to data handling, much like retrieving that blended apple in our smoothie analogy. Watsonx’s collaboration with Hugging Face further solidifies its stand in offering trustworthy AI.

In conclusion, while AI’s potential is vast and ever-evolving, it is imperative to exercise caution. The balance between innovation and responsibility is delicate. By utilizing open and transparent AI tools, businesses can harness AI’s power while ensuring data integrity, compliance, and trustworthiness. As the AI frontier expands, the emphasis must be on safe, responsible, and trustworthy AI adoption.
