Since its recent grand entrance to the world stage, ChatGPT has been infiltrating and proliferating past the tech realm and into the business world. As Artificial Intelligence (AI) continues to advance, more companies are turning to these technologies to replace human workers in certain roles. For example, Boston Dynamics’ “robodogs” are now being equipped with ChatGPT to speak and respond to people’s questions in real time.
The use of AI in the workplace is still in its infancy. However, if the past few months are any indication, AI will soon make a tremendous and imminent impact on how businesses operate. This raises a host of important ethical legal and ethical questions, such as privacy, job displacement, cost-cutting, discrimination, bias, and cybersecurity concerns. As more and more companies consider how to implement AI into their business operations, they will have to tackle these important issues to ensure they remain legally compliant and protect themselves from lawsuits by regulators, employees, and investors.
