Generative artificial intelligence (AI) tools and large language models (LLMs) have exploded onto the marketplace, allowing businesses to optimize workflows, streamline processes and become more efficient on a global scale.

However, as companies embrace this technology, they become more aware of how much this data processing impacts their Zero Trust policies to prevent exposing sensitive, proprietary or confidential data and their compliance requirements following recently introduced regulations such as the European Union’s AI Act and the U.S. Executive Order on the Safe, Secure and Trustworthy AI. The inherent value of AI models themselves also warrants protection; intellectual property – such as bespoke algorithms and LLMs – are the result of years of research and development and millions of dollars of investment.

Confidential AI helps protect this data and can enable companies to continue harnessing the power of AI while meeting the security, privacy and compliance standards required to do business. It also protects proprietary generative models from exposure, securing valuable intellectual property.

What is Confidential AI?

Confidential AI exists at the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and confidential computing, bridging the gap between Zero Trust policies designed to secure private data and generative AI, which often relies on cloud compute power to be trained and process complex tasks and requests. For businesses to trust in AI tools, technology must exist to protect from exposure inputs, trained data, generative models and proprietary algorithms. Confidential AI helps make that happen.

Confidential AI utilizes confidential computing principles and technologies to help protect data used to train LLMs, the output generated by these models and the proprietary models themselves while in use. Through vigorous isolation, encryption and attestation, confidential AI prevents malicious actors from accessing and exposing data, both inside and outside the chain of execution.

Intel’s Approach to Confidential AI

AI will only be genuinely accessible to everyone when it is built ethically and responsibly. Intel collaborates with technology leaders across the industry to deliver innovative ecosystem tools and solutions that will make using AI more secure while helping businesses address critical privacy and regulatory concerns at scale.
