As a Salesforce Architect and leader of the Alpharetta Developer Group, I recently had the opportunity to present on the exciting topic of integrating ChatGPT with Salesforce. The session received such positive feedback that I was invited to present it to a broader audience on Apex Hours, a popular YouTube channel with over 86,000 subscribers. In this blog post, I’ll recap the highlights of my presentation, focusing on the security aspects and integration with Salesforce.
History of LLM Models and OpenAI
The presentation began with a brief history of large language models (LLMs), detailing their evolution and the rise of OpenAI, a research lab dedicated to developing cutting-edge AI technologies. Co-founded by Elon Musk, OpenAI aims to promote and develop friendly AI for the benefit of humanity. ChatGPT, based on the GPT-4 architecture, is one such AI that demonstrates advanced language understanding capabilities.
Integrating ChatGPT with Salesforce
I went on to explain how Salesforce developers can harness the power of ChatGPT to improve customer interactions, automate support, and streamline various business processes. By using Apex, developers can easily integrate ChatGPT into their existing Salesforce applications. To help the audience get started with this integration, I shared a GitHub repository containing the necessary codebase.
Security Flaws and Data Leaks
One of the critical aspects of my presentation was addressing the security concerns related to ChatGPT. In light of recent data leaks, such as the Samsung incident, I emphasized the importance of implementing robust security measures when integrating ChatGPT with Salesforce. I outlined some common security flaws and offered best practices to mitigate risks, including input sanitization, filtering out field,s or giving preference to Einstein GPT.
