Although ChatGPT has become smarter, it has not been able to do so without learning from humans. The Italian data protection authority has a problem with this, as their affected ChatGPT invades people’s privacy.
And so Italy banned ChatGPT for these privacy issues. In a statement, the Italian Data Protection Authority said : “The Italian Data Protection Authority has ordered, with immediate effect, the temporary restriction of the processing of Italian users’ data against OpenAI. The absence of a legal basis justifying the collection and massive storage of personal data with the purpose of ‘train’ the algorithms underlying the operation of the platform”.
It comes days after Elon Musk and a handful of other big tech names signed an open letter calling for a pause in AI development. So it seems that concerns are growing about how AI might start to infiltrate our daily lives.
What do you think of this?
