OpenAI, the maker of ChatGPT, said it will offer rewards of up to $20,<> to users who report vulnerabilities in its artificial intelligence systems.

The OpenAI Bug Bounty program, launched on Tuesday, will reward people based on the severity of the errors they report, starting at $200 per vulnerability.

Tech companies often use bug bounty programs to encourage ethical programmers and hackers to report bugs in their own software systems.

According to details about Bug Crowd, OpenAI invited technical researchers to review certain services in the ChatGPT app and the framework for how OpenAI systems communicate and share data with third-party applications.

The app does not contain incorrect or malicious content produced by OpenAI systems.

The move comes days after ChatGPT was banned in Italy on suspicion of breaching privacy rules, prompting regulators in other European countries to study generic AI services closely.

ChatGPT has sparked controversy between supporters of its use and opponents who see its problems as more than benefits.
