OpenAI, the company behind chatbot sensation ChatGPT, said Tuesday that it will offer up to $20,000 to users who report vulnerabilities in its artificial intelligence systems.
The OpenAI Bug Bounty program , which went live on Tuesday, will offer rewards to people based on the severity of reported bugs, with rewards starting at $200 per vulnerability.
Technology companies often use bug bounty programs to encourage ethical programmers and hackers to report bugs in their software systems.
According to details on the bug bounty platform Bugcrowd, OpenAI invited researchers to review some ChatGPT features and the framework of how OpenAI systems communicate and share data with third-party applications.
The program does not include erroneous or harmful content produced by OpenAI systems.
The move comes just days after ChatGPT was banned in Italy for a suspected privacy violation, prompting regulators in other European countries to take a closer look at generative artificial intelligence services.
OpenAI’s ChatGPT, supported by Microsoft Corp , which has taken the world by storm since its launch in November, has thrilled some users with quick answers to questions and caused anguish to others with inaccuracies.
