Italy is the first in the world to ban Internet users from accessing the ChatGPT neural network

Italy’s National Data Protection Authority has banned US company OpenAI from processing Italian user data, the regulator said in a statement.

OpenAI is developing the ChatGPT neural network. The agency accused the company of violating the security of sensitive data after the leak, which occurred on March 25. Due to a malfunction in the neural network, users could see other people’s messages and gain access to the payment information of service subscribers, in particular, the last digits of credit cards and their expiration date.

The Italian regulator emphasized that OpenAI collects data from users to train its algorithms without notifying the users themselves.

The agency said that ChatGPT will be banned until OpenAI complies with EU law on the protection of personal data. If the requirements of the law are not met, OpenAI faces a fine of 20 million euros, or 4% of annual global turnover, the regulator said.
