European regulators against OpenAI: who wins ?
While ChatGPT is blocked or banned in China, Russia, and other countries, Italy was the first country in Europe to take this step, citing concerns about data collection, marginal access, and inaccurate and misleading information. Italy has since lifted that ban, but now Germany, Spain and France have launched their own investigations into ChatGPD.
Background: Regulators are reviewing the way AI systems collect data and generate information, which may conflict with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The data protection framework requires consent to the storage and collection of personal data. If regulators require changes to OpenAI, it could affect how ChatGPT works and be extended to generative AI systems worldwide.
