The U.S. House has set a strict ban on congressional staffers’ use of Microsoft Copilot, the company’s AI-based chatbot, Axios reported Friday. From the report: The House last June restricted staffers’ use of ChatGPT, allowing limited use of the paid subscription version while banning the free version. The House’s Chief Administrative Officer Catherine Szpindor, in guidance to congressional offices obtained by Axios, said Microsoft Copilot is “unauthorized for House use.”
