ChatGPT's parent company, Open AI, quietly changed its rules of use earlier this month to open its doors to the defense sector . A change which is cause for concern, although the company wants to be reassuring.

Until recently, the words “military and war” were included in the list of this that it is prohibited to do with OpenAI's artificial intelligence, alongside child crime, harassment or illegal activities. If we are to believe the media The Intercept, they have not been there since January 10.

As Presse Citron reports, the American company did not deny this change in language, but wanted to explain: “There are use cases in national security that correspond to our mission. For example, we are already working with DARPA (editor's note, the American Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) to stimulate the creation of new cybersecurity tools to secure the open source software on which critical infrastructure and industry depend. It was unclear whether these beneficial use cases would have been allowed under “military” in our previous policies, so the goal of our policy update is to provide clarity and enable these. discussions.”

And to specify that there were limits to these new uses: “Our policy does not allow our tools to be used to harm people, develop weapons, to monitor communications, or to harm others or destroy property” .

That being said, as a TechCrunch article shows through two screenshots, “everything has been rewritten.” While the previous version of the rules established a very clear list of prohibitions, the new one is a collection of rather vague and flexible instructions. Come what may!
