ChatGpt Use Halted in Italy, Open AI Given 20 Days to Comply with GDPR

Recently, it was reported that the use of ChatGpt has been halted in Italy due to deficiencies in the collection of user data consent and the absence of a mechanism to verify user age. However, Open AI has been given 20 days to comply with GDPR regulations.

Positive developments arose from a meeting between the leaders of Open AI and the Garante for the protection of personal data. The Garante declared that there is no intention to stop the technological development of AI, while Sam Altman of Open AI spoke of a positive resolution of the issues and a commitment to transparency regarding personal data. This means that ChatGpt may continue to be used in Italy once compliance with GDPR has been achieved.
