ChatGPT’s vast potential as a work assistant is becoming clear to Amazon employees.
According to internal Slack communications obtained by Insider, ChatGPT has been employed in various job roles at Amazon. Amazon employees may be using ChatGPT for a variety of tasks, such as customer service, content generation, and data analysis. For example, they might use the model to generate responses to frequently asked customer questions or to analyze customer feedback and identify common themes. Additionally, Amazon may use the model to generate product descriptions or to assist with data entry and analysis.

According to OpenAI’s terms of service, users must accept that OpenAI may use all input and output generated by users and ChatGPT. It was also said that OpenAI erased any personally identifying information (PII) from the data that it used. However, given ChatGPT’s quickly rising scale, which topped 1 million users within a week of its inception, Bender believes it is difficult for OpenAI to identify and erase all personal information. Furthermore, a company’s intellectual property may be excluded from the definition of PII.
Data privacy appears to be the least of Amazon’s employees’ concerns. They claim that using chatbots at work has increased productivity by a factor of ten, and many hope to join an internal team building a comparable service.
