NIXSolutions: US Parliamentarians Banned from Using Microsoft Copilot

Existing artificial intelligence systems often rely on cloud resources, processing user data and posing potential security risks. In light of published recommendations, the US Congress prohibits the use of Microsoft Copilot for official purposes.


Implications for American Parliamentarians

The Microsoft Copilot service aims to streamline document management, tempting American legislators to enhance their workflow. However, the use of Microsoft’s cloud resources raises security concerns not approved by the Congress.

Steps Taken by Authorities

To address these concerns, all official Windows PCs utilized by US lawmakers will be configured to block or remove the Microsoft Copilot service. Meanwhile, Microsoft is committed to developing a secure service tailored for government use by summer. This service aims to provide artificial intelligence solutions with enhanced security measures.

Future Considerations

Representatives from the relevant Congressional committee have indicated that they will evaluate the suitability of the new Copilot version for handling government data upon its release. NIXSolutions notes that, last year, legislators were barred from using the free version of ChatGPT due to similar security concerns. However, the advanced ChatGPT Plus service remained accessible for analyzing pre-existing cloud-stored information.
