Brex Inc., a highly valued startup that makes software for finance professionals, is turning to the same artificial intelligence (AI) tool behind ChatGPT to build a service that can answer questions about corporate budgets, policy, and spending.

These features are currently being tested and will be released widely this summer, the company said Tuesday. The service relies on OpenAI’s GPT language generation system—the same software that was used to build ChatGPT, the popular AI chatbot released in November.

The move would bring a controversial technology to the buttoned-down world of corporate finance and budgeting. In addition to helping CFOs and other executives, it would enable employees to get answers to questions like “Am I going to go over budget? How can I buy this? And have we already bought something like this before?” said Brex CEO Henrique Dubugras.
