Common Chatbot Use Cases

AI, particularly chatbots, has numerous practical applications in several key areas:

  • Customer Support: AI systems like ChatGPT provide instant, efficient responses to customer inquiries, enhancing user experience and streamlining communication processes.
  • Content Generation: Chatbots can generate large quantities of text, including articles, marketing copy, and creative writing, saving time and resources.
  • Language Translation: Real-time language translation facilitated by chatbots breaks down communication barriers and fosters global collaboration.
  • Personal Assistance: Chatbots act as virtual assistants, helping users with scheduling, reminders, and general information.
  • Educational Support: AI is implemented in educational settings to offer tutoring, answer student questions, and support learning materials.

These use cases also come with potential security implications. Understanding best practices for safe implementation is essential to leverage these technologies effectively.

Essential Information Security Topics

Our tutorial also addresses critical information security concerns related to AI, focusing on two primary areas:

Unreliable Output

AI systems, while powerful, can produce outputs that are false, misleading, or sub-optimal. This phenomenon, known as 'AI hallucinations,' arises because these systems are trained on vast amounts of data from the internet, which can include inaccuracies.


  • False Medical Advice: An AI chatbot providing incorrect medical advice based on outdated or incorrect information, potentially leading to harmful consequences for users.
  • Misleading Financial Information: AI-generated financial reports or investment advice that contain errors, causing poor decision-making and financial losses.
  • Biased Hiring Recommendations: An AI recruitment tool favouring certain candidates due to biased training data, resulting in unfair hiring practices and lack of diversity.

Our tutorial highlights the importance of verifying AI-generated content and understanding the limitations and potential pitfalls of relying on AI outputs.

Privacy & Data Security

AI systems often process user inputs to improve their models, which raises significant privacy and data security concerns.


  • Confidential Data Leakage: Sensitive company information entered into a chatbot for troubleshooting gets stored and inadvertently accessed by unauthorised parties.
  • Personal Data Misuse: User data collected by AI systems being used for purposes beyond the original intent, violating privacy agreements and regulations.
  • Phishing Attacks: AI-generated phishing emails crafted using personal information obtained from insecure AI interactions, making them highly convincing and dangerous.

Our tutorial emphasises the need for strict data handling policies, ensuring that employees treat chatbots as non-trusted entities and avoid sharing sensitive information.
