ChatGPT Is Restored After OpenAI Responds To The Italian Regulator

(CTN News) – It was confirmed by the Italian data protection authority on Friday that the ChatGPT chatbot had been reactivated in Italy due to issues raised by OpenAI, the company behind the chatbot.

OpenAI, which is backed by Microsoft Corp, took ChatGPT offline last month in Italy after the country’s data protection authority, also known as Garante in Italian, temporarily banned the chatbot and began an investigation into the alleged privacy breach of the artificial intelligence application.

Guarantor had given OpenAI until Sunday to resolve its concerns in order to be permitted to resume its operations in the country.

It was earlier this month that Garante stated that ChatGPT was “in the process of collecting and storing massive amounts of personal data” in order to “train” the chatbot as it seems that such a policy cannot be justified by any legal grounds.

It has also been accused by Guarantor that OpenAI failed to verify the age of the users of ChatGPT who are supposed to be at least 13 years of age. Upon signing up for ChatGPT, OpenAI has stated it will offer a tool to verify the age of the users.

The company announced on Friday that it will make the privacy policy and the opt-out form for the company’s user content more visible to the public.

The company is also planning to develop a new form that will allow European Union citizens to exercise their right to object to the company’s use of their personal data in order to train its models, according to a spokesperson for the company.

In order to opt out of the program, people must provide detailed information about themselves, including evidence of data processing, in a form that asks for this information.

According to Guarantor, the company recognizes the steps taken to balance technological progress with respect for people’s rights, and it hopes that the company will continue along this path of compliance with European regulations regarding data protection in the future.

As the first western European nation to curb ChatGPT, Italy was the first to do so, but its rapid development has attracted the attention of lawmakers and regulators in several other western European countries as well.

In a committee of EU lawmakers, a new set of rules was agreed on Thursday that would require companies deploying generative AI tools, such as ChatGPT, to disclose copies of any copyrighted materials used in the development of their tools.

A task force was set up early this month by the European Data Protection Board (EDPB), the organization that unites all the national privacy authorities in Europe, in response to Garante’s interest in ChatGPT.

There is no doubt that Guarantor is going to continue its investigation into ChatGPT and will work with the special task force on this matter.
