The AI application ChatGPT quickly became a household name, but already is morphing into a more advanced version of generative AI. At the same time, Microsoft’s redesigned Bing search engine will soon run on a new, next-generation OpenAI large language model. While these tools have demonstrated that generative AI has tremendous operational and business potential, a constellation of privacy and data security risks arising from their use have become visible.

In a two-part guest article series for the Cybersecurity Law Report, Ballard Spahr Privacy & Data Security attorneys, Phil Yannella, Greg Szewczyk, Tim Dickens and Emily Klode explore these issues. The first article covers AI collection and use issues under U.S. and E.U privacy laws and regulations. Part two will address product liability, healthcare and employment risks, issues under wiretapping laws, and practical compliance measures. The article is paywalled.
