Italy became the first country in the world to ban the use of ChatGPT.

Italy has become the first country in the world to ban the use of the prototype AI chatbot ChatGPT, according to a statement released this Friday by the Guarantor of Personal Data Protection (GPDP), an independent administrative body in the European country. according to RT.

The text indicates that they blocked this tool, developed by the American company OpenAI, allegedly due to illegal collection of personal data and the lack of age verification systems.

From the GPDP, they explain that there is a lack of information for users and for all stakeholders whose data OpenAI collects, and, above all, that there is no legal basis to justify their collection and mass storage for the purpose of learning the algorithms that underpin the operation of the platform.

In this sense, we recall that on March 20, a popular chatbot leaked data from conversations generated with users and information related to the collection of paid service subscribers.

It is also denounced that, despite the fact that the service is aimed at persons over the age of 13, there is no filter for checking the age of users, which exposes minors to “absolutely inadequate” responses, given their “degree of development and self-knowledge.

For this reason, the agency ordered OpenAI to temporarily restrict the processing of Italian user data with immediate effect, launched an investigation in this regard, and advised people to stop using the chatbot until they comply with the current privacy regulations.

In addition, he gave the California company 20 days to report the steps it is taking to address these issues, under penalty of a fine of up to $21.7 million, or up to 4% of its annual global total. billing.
