The Italian data protection authority, the Garante, has said that it plans to look at other generative artificial intelligence (AI) platforms following the temporary ban of OpenAI's ChatGPT in March.
In a statement to the Reuters news agency, Agostino Ghiglia, a member of the Garante's board, said, "We plan to kick off a wide-scope review of generative and machine learning AI applications which are available online because we want to understand if these new tools are addressing issues linked to data protection and privacy laws compliance - and we will start new probes, if needed."
The news comes after Apple confirmed it has banned employees from using ChatGPT and similar AI tools due to fears of leaking confidential information. Considerring the move by Apple (and also Samsung and Verizon), The Verge writes about how technology companies' protective reactions against generative AI systems should strike a chord.
