5 Risks You Should Know When Using AI + Recommendations

Yup, we are still talking about Artificial Intelligence (AI) because we need to understand more about it. In the first article we created about AI, we studied and explored the advantages and disadvantages of it in the workplace. We even tackled understanding what it is all about, considerations when implementing, and of course, balancing opportunities and risks.

Now, we’d like to share the risks of using AI especially when it’s free. It may be a convenient solution, but we should also consider the security risks it may impose when relying on it too much.

Here are 5 risks you should know:

  1. Data Privacy: When an AI tool requires access to your database, this creates vulnerabilities if data is not properly secured and protected.
  2. Intellectual Property Theft: Be careful when using AI when creating blogs/articles/contents. Make sure to use tools such as Grammarly or Quillbot as plagiarism checkers.
  3. Cybersecurity Threats: When integrated into workplace workflows, it may create new entry points for cybercriminals to use.
  4. Vulnerabilities for Hackers: Writing tools may also be vulnerable to hackers who could exploit security flaws to gain unauthorized access to your systems. Comprehensive cybersecurity measures are crucial to safeguard against this risk.
  5. Lack of Oversight: Over-reliance on AI can lead to loss of human control. Businesses should maintain a balanced approach.

Before making decisions on implementation of AI in your workplace, think of these risks that we have shared. Careful evaluation of the security implications is important before deploying AI writing assistants, tools, or even task assistants. Ignoring these risks could have serious consequences for you and your business.

We also did some research on secure and recommended AI tools. We’ve been playing and testing some tools that will somehow help you with your productivity.

Here are some tools we loved:

  • We love using Copilot as a chatbot. It can do a lot of things such as a writing assistant, decision making, personalization, streamlining workflows, and other tasks.
  • Another option is ChatGPT. It is free to use and very easy to navigate and try. You can ask it for writing, learning, and brainstorming.
  • One more tool we really recommend is Rytr. It is a really refined version of ChatGPT because you can set the tone and create your own use case for whatever piece you are writing.

AI can be such a powerful to help to our daily lives. It is important to foster a culture of responsible AI use within your organization, providing training, and guidelines to ensure that these tools are utilized properly. By doing so, AI can serve as a valuable tool rather than being a source of harm and misinformation.
