Italy's data protection authority, the Garante, has told OpenAI that its generative artificial intelligence (Gen AI) chatbot ChatGPT is in breach of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The news follows the temporary ban imposed by the regulator last year and subsequent investigation. OpenAI has 30 days to respond.
In a statement, OpenAI said it believes its practices are aligned with EU data protection laws: "We actively work to reduce personal data in training our systems like ChatGPT," and that it "plans to continue to work constructively with the Garante".
