Dutch DPA contacts OpenAI to ask about ChatGPT data collection

09/06/2023 | Dutch DPA

The Dutch Data Protection Authority (AP) is concerned about how organisations using generative artificial intelligence (AI), like ChatGPT, handle personal data. The AP has contacted OpenAI, the software developer behind ChatGPT, to clarify how they handle personal data during system training. 

Specifically, the AP has asked OpenAI about their use of people's questions to train the GPT algorithm and how they collect and use personal data from the internet. They also have concerns about the accuracy and appropriateness of the information generated by GPT. It is unclear if and how OpenAI can rectify or delete this data.

In related news, Cyberscoop reports that privacy industry experts warn users not to share geolocation data with generative AI systems. "There's a whole host of reasons to be concerned about the security of location data and its implications for the privacy of users of the system," AI Now Institute Managing Director Sarah Myers West said.
