Microsoft has rolled out new admin tools for Bing Chat Enterprise. But the AI is not fed with sensitive company information, it sounds.
Microsoft insists that Bing Chat Enterprise will not have access to content within organizations for the further development of the smart chat tool. The content of documents, emails, meetings or Teams messages within the Microsoft 365 environment is not processed or used by the Bing Chat Enterprise smart learning platform. The privacy rules remain intact, the software giant says.
Through Bing Chat Enterprise, companies can rely on generative AI, without anything leaking from the internal kitchen, according to Microsoft. Through the new admin tools, IT managers at companies can roll out Bing Chat Enterprise to specific users and no longer necessarily to the entire organization in one fell swoop. Employees who want to consult the AI via the special menu in Microsoft Edge or bing.com use their login for the Microsoft Enterprise ID.
Privacy rules circumvented?
However, there is a small comment to be made. The Enterprise version of the smart chatbot involves so-called ‘unidentified data’. Therefore, they fall outside the rules for European data sovereignty. This means that the chat rules you enter may be processed in Microsoft data centers (outside Europe). Although the European data rules are respected in that regard, Microsoft’s word is the only guarantee.
