ChatGPT won’t be taking any jobs in Italy.

Last week, the European country banned ChatGPT due to “privacy concerns”.

According to the Italian Data Protection Authority (DPA), ChatGPT is breaching the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)—the strongest data privacy law in the world which protects user data and how companies access this data.

The DPA is worried that ChatGPT has unlawfully accessed people’s personal data and has no policies in place protecting minors from its use. Since its launch in November 2022, millions of people have used ChatGPT every day to process and gather information. Some of this includes biographies about people which ChatGPT claims it scrapes from online platforms—a claim Italy decries.

The ban orders OpenAi—ChatGPT’s parent company—to stop processing people’s data locally within 20 days or face fines of up to €20 million ($21 million).

Big picture:

Italy is not the only one trying to stall the rise of the machines AI. Last week, over 1,000 influential minds—including Chief Twit Elon Musk and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak—signed an open letter asking all AI labs to stop developing AIs for six months.

Their reason?

These labs are creating digital minds that no one, not even the creators, can understand, predict or reliably control. 😰

Looks like these geniuses think we are worried about the wrong pandemic when we should be focused on which AI lab is creating the real-life Skynet. Time to beg Elon for that Mars colony.
