How About Security With AI?

Salesforce’s generative AI Einstein GPT promises tight security for all customer data. When it launched, Salesforce introduced AI Cloud for enhanced security, featuring the Einstein GPT trust layer. This layer protects customer information, especially when using advanced AI like OpenAI’s GPT.

The system hides personal details by blending them into prompts without storing any data afterward, thanks to a zero retention policy. It also prevents harmful content with toxicity detection. Salesforce Einstein GPT users can feel secure using AI, knowing their data is safe.

Einstein Studio

Einstein Studio is a new Einstein AI Salesforce feature that helps users work with Salesforce Einstein GPT AI and keep their data private. It lets you connect your company’s data with AI from outside. It sounds scary, but don’t forget about the Salesforce Trust Layer. With Einstein Studio, you can use Einstein GPT Salesforce to predict such things as sales, create content, automatically answer emails, and much more without any kind of risk from the company side.

With Salesforce’s Bring Your Own Model (BYOM) feature, your team can easily create and use their own AI models right inside Salesforce. That sounds impressive! Also, this makes things like planning and creating content faster and fits your company’s needs better. You don’t need to be a developer or pass complicated AI setups, and you’ll save your time and effort.

Einstein Studio’s App interface is user-friendly and gives you the possibility to integrate AI models with your CRM easily. With Model Builder, you can make some cool things as:

  • You can begin a new model from the ground up.
  • You can choose a ready-made model from Amazon SageMaker.
  • Add a model from Google Vertex AI.
  • Connect a model from another place.

Einstein Studio is great because it makes life easier for companies that use AI.

If your company already worked with other tools, no worries because Salesforce’s Einstein Studio is open to other AI technologies too, like Amazon SageMaker and Google Vertex AI.

Prompt Builder

Salesforce has added Prompt Builder to its AI features. This tool was designed to help you create customized content quickly and easily. It works by using prompts, which are simple questions or instructions you can give to the Einstein AI Salesforce using natural language. As an example, you could tell Prompt Builder to create a custom email or a post for social media.

What makes Prompt Builder smart, is that it uses a large language model, a type of AI that learns from lots of text. Prompt Builder understands and responds in a way that’s informative and interesting.

Unlike the broader ChatGPT, Prompt Builder has specific templates for routine tasks. It can help automatically, for instance, by drafting emails for customer introductions or service follow-ups.

Here’s how it works: you type in what you need, like “create a custom email for my customer Chris Smith.” Then, Prompt Builder makes an email just for Chris, focusing on important details.

Prompt Builder has several big advantages:

  • Personalization: You can create content that speaks directly to individual customers or groups. This could be a welcome email that mentions a customer’s interests, showing them how your service fits their needs.
  • Engagement: Generate posts and articles that grab attention. Say you want a blog post on a hot topic; Prompt Builder can craft that post, complete with links to your site and actions for readers to take.
  • Sales: Write messages that encourage people to make a purchase. If you need a sales pitch for a particular customer, Prompt Builder can put it together, highlighting how your product or service solves their problems.

Salesforce Prompt Builder is a tool that can boost customer interest, increase sales, and help your business grow. Just remember to use it wisely. Always double-check that the content it creates is accurate and respectful, avoiding anything that could be seen as offensive or discriminatory.
