written by John Murphy | April 29, 2023

According to recent news about ChatGPT re-entering Italy, the cancellation of the ban in Italy required ChatGPT to disclose its data processing. Also, it requires implementing age-gating measures, among other legal requirements.

Chat GPT, a popular interactive artificial intelligence chatbot, is again permitted to offer its services in Italy. ChatGPT got this permission after addressing the privacy concerns raised by Garante, the region’s data protection agency.

Key Takeaways:

  • ChatGPT is now available in Italy after a temporary ban for suspected GDPR violations.
  • Ban was lifted after ChatGPT addressed privacy concerns and implemented protective measures.
  • OpenAI CEO announced ChatGPT’s re-availability in Italy 29 days after the ban, without disclosing compliance steps.
  • New EU bill to regulate AI and classify tools based on risk levels, subjecting high-risk tools to stricter transparency requirements.
  • ChatGPT’s compliance with local authorities is positive and welcomed globally.

Van Nuthaya took to Twitter and announced that after 29 days after the temporary ban, Open AI ChatGPT re-entered Italy.

The OpenAI’s ChatGPT was banned in Italy on 31 March. A Watchdog suspects ChatGPT is breaching the requirements of the European Union General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). This violation is the reason behind the ban.

Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, announced the re-availability of ChatGPT in Italy exactly 29 days after the ban on 29 April. He did not reveal the steps taken by the company to comply with the transparency demands of the Italian regulators.

Bercoinfeed NEWS took to Twitter and made an announcement that ChatGPT needs to reveal its data processing practices after the cancellation of the ban in Italy. However, it is required to implement protective measures, among other legal requirements.

While initially, the sudden ban raised the possibility of flourishing AI regulations. ChatGPT is willing to swiftly comply with the local authorities, which is a positive move. All the ChatGPT users welcome this rule globally.

Moreover, European Union legislators are working on a new bill to keep a check on the explosive AI developments.

666 took to Twitter and made an announcement about the re-availability of OpenAI ChatGPT in Italy after the temporary ban. The temporary ban is due to the recent data breach that ChatGPT suffered on 20 March.

 According to a report, the bill aims to classify AI tools to perceive risk levels based on capability. These risk levels range from minimal to acceptable.

The high risks put through stricter transparency requirements but not banned entirely, according to the bill. The AI tools, including Midjourney and ChatGPT, will be subject to reveal the copyrighted materials used in AI training if signed into law.
