House restricts use of ChatGPT by Congress

According to a new report from Axios, on Monday the House enacted new rules governing how Congressional offices can use ChatGPT and announced that no non-ChatGPT chatbots have yet been authorized.

In a memo Monday, House Chief Administrative Chief Katherine L. Szpindor said that because of its enhanced privacy features, lawmakers and staffers were now limited to using ChatGPT Plus, the paid version of the chatbot. Offices can only use the product for "research and evaluation" with privacy settings enabled and are forbidden from pasting "any block of text that has not already been made public" into the service.

Many private companies, including Samsung and Apple, have banned or restricted employees from using generative AI tools like ChatGPT. They have cited fears that confidential data could be leaked through the tool – a fear supported by some previous OpenAI privacy blunders, such as a bug that temporarily exposed users' chat history to each other. .
