As AI is starting to become something many of us are using, it’s interesting to think about the possibility’s of getting an AI to look at our own data. I’ve set up privateGPT on an older computer and given it data to “ingest”!
It does take some time and it needs a decent amount of ram and cpu grunt, but it does work surprisingly well even on under-powered machines. It also gives you links to source documents you may have got the device to ingest (unlike some products I might mention… cough!).
There is a part of me that thinks that this sort of product could be very useful for insite for a private company (or even an individual). Think about the possibilities of giving it access to all emails sent. What could it learn? All files on the server, who created the most files? Who was involved in which projects and what were the skill sets of the people involved (past and present).
Lets also think about the possibility of an AI having access to production data and financials!? What could be gleaned from all that information. It’s been said that we will soon have personal versions of AI that can run on phones. I’m sort of looking forward to this … but having recently re watched the most excellent Ridley Scott movie movie Alien Covenant, I’m recommending that we proceed with caution!
