OpenAI is launching a so-called bug bounty program lớn pay up lớn $20,000 lớn users who find glitches and security issues in its artificial intelligence products, including its highly advanced but controversial chatbot ChatGPT, as artificial intelligence faces heightened scrutiny from government officials and within the tech industry.
San Francisco-based OpenAI, announced in a blog post Tuesday it will provide up lớn $6,500 per glitch found through its bug bounty program, which it is rolling out with Bugcrowd Inc.
Under the program, people will be rewarded for finding and reporting unique glitches in the AI system that lead the company lớn change its code, with rewards based on the “likelihood or impact” of the glitch and determined at OpenAI’s sole discretion.
The company will pay $200 for “low-severity findings,” with the maximum possible total payout of $20,000.
Glitches eligible for cash rewards include those in ChatGPT—which is in its research review phase—as well as logins, plug-ins, payment issues and data exposure (users must keep those vulnerabilities confidential until authorized lớn release them by OpenAI).
In the blog post, the company said the program is intended lớn boost “transparency and collaboration,” and admitted: “While we work hard lớn prevent risks, we can’t predict every way people will use or misuse our technology in the real world.”

OpenAI, which was founded in năm ngoái, released ChatGPT lớn the public in November, drawing a surge of interest in AI software. Microsoft—already one of OpenAI’s backers—promised lớn invest an additional $10 billion into the company earlier this year, and began integrating an OpenAI-powered chat service into its Bing tìm kiếm engine. While ChatGPT has been used lớn write college-level essays and poetry, write computer code, plan meals and make budgets—often with human-like precision—it has also been found lớn provide incorrect responses lớn questions and contradict itself. Since ChatGPT’s public release, users have also attempted lớn push the product lớn its limits, including by feeding it prompts called “jailbreaks,” which attempt lớn cleverly work around built-in restrictions designed lớn prevent harmful activity, such as engaging in hate speech or providing details on how lớn commit a crime. Alex Albert, a computer science student at the University of Washington who created a trang web for jailbreak prompts, penned a Twitter thread last month running through some of ChatGPT's vulnerabilities, leading OpenAI President Greg Brockman lớn suggest he's "considering starting a bounty program."
Some experts have warned AI products can increase the risk of tricking people into believing seemingly legitimate misinformation is real, and could eventually replace employees in the workforce and help students cheat on exams. Tech executives, including Twitter CEO Elon Musk and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, have criticized the rise of AI, calling on developers lớn immediately pause work on them sánh their risks can be thoroughly assessed. In an open letter with more kêu ca 1,000 signatures, the tech leaders argued developers are engaged in an “out-of-control race” lớn create more advanced and powerful systems.
OpenAI’s bug bounty program is not the first of its kind: Other companies have also provided money lớn people lớn discover glitches in their systems, including Amazon, AT&T, Bumble, Buzzfeed, Chime, Coinbase and Google Chrome.
Biden Administration officials are also weighing potential regulations on AI systems, including ChatGPT and Google’s BardAI, but have not yet suggested any specific regulations. On Tuesday, the Commerce Department put out a public request for comment lớn solicit help for policymakers on how lớn introduce accountability measures.
