According to a Bloomberg report, the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) plans to equip its analysts with the new AI tool to better access open-source intelligence. This includes sifting through public information for leads in investigations.

Agency officials said they intend to roll out the tool “soon.” Randy Nixon, the director of the division, told Bloomberg that they have gone from utilizing, “newspapers and radio, to newspapers and television, to newspapers and cable television, to basic internet, to big data, and it just keeps going.”

The development comes after critics have called the current methods of CIA processing available public data “slow.”

Bloomberg reported that the new tools will provide its users with the ability to see the original source of the information being sourced, along with a chat feature.

“Then you can take it to the next level and start chatting and asking questions of the machines to give you answers, also sourced.”

There was no mention to the model from which the CIA is building its new tool nor its privacy protections, though Nixon said it “closely follows” privacy law in the U.S.

The tool will reportedly be available across the 18 agencies that make up the U.S. intelligence. This includes the CIA, National Security Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, along with military-run agencies.

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the United States is planning to build and deploy its own Chat-GPT-style artificial intelligence (AI) bot for investigations, according to a report from Bloomberg.

This development from the CIA comes after recent confirmation from other governmental agencies of the use of AI.

On Sept. 12, Gary Gensler, the chair of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), confirmed to the U.S. Senate that his department is currently employing AI tools to monitor the finance industry to search for clues of fraud and manipulation.

In a speech on July 17, Gensler praised the use of AI tools in a speech saying that SEC staff could benefit from greater use of AI in “market surveillance, disclosure review, exams, enforcement, and economic analysis.”
