The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is planning to build and deploy its own ChatGPT-style artificial intelligence (AI) bot to conduct investigations, Bloomberg reported.
The CIA reportedly plans to equip its analysts with new artificial intelligence tools to better obtain open source intelligence. This includes sifting through public information for investigative leads.
Agency officials said they plan to roll out the tool soon. Randy Nixon, director of open source enterprises at the CIA, told Bloomberg they have gone from leveraging “newspapers and radio, to newspapers and TV, to newspapers and cable TV, to basic internet, to big data, and it’s still going on. develop.”
The development comes after critics described the CIA’s current approach to processing available public data as “slow.”
Bloomberg reports that the new tool will allow users to view the original source of information as well as chat functionality.
“Then you can take it to the next level and start a chat and ask the machine questions and the machine will give you answers, and those answers will come from a source as well.”
Although Nixon said the CIA “strictly complies” with U.S. privacy laws, there was no mention of the CIA’s modeling of new tools or its privacy protections.
According to reports, the tool will be used across 18 agencies within the U.S. intelligence community. This includes the CIA, NSA, FBI and military agencies.

This development by the CIA follows recent confirmation of the use of artificial intelligence by other government agencies.
On September 12, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Chairman Gary Gensler confirmed to the U.S. Senate that his department is currently using artificial intelligence tools to monitor the financial industry and look for clues of fraud and manipulation.
In a speech on July 17, Gensler praised the use of AI tools and said SEC staff could benefit from greater use of AI in “market surveillance, disclosure reviews, examinations, enforcement and economic analysis.” .
