Italy prohibits ChatGPT from “immediately” not observing consumer data

Italy today blocked “with immediate effect” the Artificial ChatGPT tool, from the American technology company OpenAI, accusing it of not complying with the law on the protection of consumer data.

The Italian guarantor for the Protection of Personal Data said in a statement that it has opened an investigation and in the meantime it will be blocked until ChatGPT “does not respect the privacy policy”.

The popularity of ChatGPT has been increased by the OpenIA company in the United States, where some organizations have even asked for its suspension due to doubts about these experiments with Artificial Intelligence.

The Italian body reported that this chat, best known for emerging artificial intelligence, can simulate human conversations; the loss of data on its users and the payment of data signed on March 20.

In its provision, the Italian guarantor highlights “the lack of data on users and all interested parties from which OpenAI collects data”, but “above all the absence of a legal basis that justifies the large collection and storage of personal data”.

In addition, it claims that the information generated by ChatGPT does not always correspond to reality.

Finally, Italy regrets the “absence of any type of filter” in the confirmation of the age of users, despite the fact that the service is aimed at people over 13 years old. In this way, children are “exposed to answers that are completely inappropriate in terms of their development and awareness”.

The use of artificial intelligence is becoming more frequent and flourishing and, for this reason, UNESCO urged countries to apply “without delay” to the Global Artificial Intelligence technology, unanimously adopted in 2021 by 193 Member States.

ChatGPT’s ability to write very realistic text at high speed and size makes this AI tool go for fraud and misinformation, but even a partner of cybercriminals with little technical knowledge, when generating codes in various programming languages, warned Europol today.

Extensive language models like ChatGPT have a “dark side,” admits the police coordination agency, which published its first report on the abuse of this type of artificial intelligence system by criminals on Monday, which it says provides. “bleak picture” and a new challenge to law enforcement.

The current model of public access to ChatGPT, processing and generating a person as capable of text, can answer questions on various topics, interpret text, chat, generate new objects and implement functional code, but also facilitate criminal activities from helping criminals remain anonymous to specific crimes, such as terrorism and child sexual abuse.
