According to Bloomberg and Reuters, as reported by, the U.S. Space Force has “paused the use of web-based generative artificial intelligence (AI) tools like ChatGPT over data security concerns.”

In a memo issued to its workforce, Space Force has prohibited the use of web-based generative AI tools until approval is received by the Chief Technology and Innovation Office.

Space Force has confirmed that the ban is temporary while a generative AI task force with other Pentagon officials has been formed to determine ways the technology can be used “in a ‘responsible and strategic manner.’”
