Will remove ChatGPT from the EU if the regulations are too heavy-handed

OpenAI CEO Sam Altman has been very clear about the need to regulate AI and have laws around AI. However, European AI law is very strict and has been accused of stifling innovation. If regulation remains authoritarian, OpenAI will remove ChatGPT from Europe.

Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, which is backed by Microsoft, has been advocating for the creation of new regulations for AI technology to lawmakers around the world. However, he recently warned that OpenAI could pull out of the European Union (EU) if the bloc imposes excessive regulations and is too authoritarian.

Altman has actively engaged with political leaders in several European countries to discuss the future of AI and the progress of OpenAI’s ChatGPT, as well as the need to regulate the technology, without being too stifling.

Altman Ignoring EU AI Law Making
Altman did not travel to Brussels, where EU regulators are currently drafting the long-awaited EU AI law, which could become the world’s first set of regulations for AI. Altman has canceled his planned visit to Brussels, according to two undisclosed sources.

OpenAI has no plans to leave Europe, says CEO Sam Altman

Altman expressed his belief that the EU’s current AI bill is too restrictive, but suggested it could be revised. European lawmakers involved in crafting the AI ​​law contradicted Altman’s statement, saying there were no immediate plans to water down the regulations.

Dragos Tudorache, the Romanian member of the European Parliament leading the drafting process, invited Altman to voice his concerns directly to EU lawmakers.

Thierry Breton, the European industry chief, criticized Altman’s threat and stressed that the draft rules were not open to negotiation.

OpenAI is expected to discuss AI regulation in more detail and hold meetings with world leaders such as British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and French President Emmanuel Macron.

EU lawmakers unhappy with ‘threat’
Dutch MEP Kim van Sparrentak, who contributed to the EU bill, said European countries should not be swayed by ultimatums from US companies.

She also said that if OpenAI does not meet basic requirements for data governance, transparency, safety and security, their systems are not suitable for the European market.

After launching in November last year, ChatGPT has seen remarkable user growth, surpassing any other consumer app in history, last February.

OpenAI encountered its first clash with regulators in March when Italian data regulator Garante temporarily shut down the ChatGPT app in Italy, alleging a breach of European privacy regulations. ChatGPT was reinstated after OpenAI implemented new privacy measures for users.

Tighten the noose around the AI
Meanwhile, EU lawmakers have introduced additional proposals to the AI ​​Act, requiring companies using generative tools like ChatGPT to disclose any copyrighted material used in training their systems. .

The AI ​​bill was recently approved by European parliamentarians. The final details of the bill will be determined through negotiations involving member states, the European Commission and Parliament. Individual member states, such as France or Poland, can also propose amendments to the bill through the Council of Europe ahead of its potential adoption later this year.

Although the legislation has been in development for several years, provisions specifically targeting generative tools were formulated shortly before a crucial vote on the proposals. Initially, some lawmakers suggested completely banning the use of copyrighted material for training generative AI models, but that idea was dropped in favor of stricter transparency requirements.

Altman recently traveled to Munich, Germany, where he met Chancellor Olaf Scholz. Sergey Lagodinsky, a German MEP involved in the legislation, acknowledged Altman’s attempts to influence individual countries, but stressed that Brussels’ plans to regulate the technology are progressing vigorously. Lagodinsky expressed doubts that the overall regulatory trajectory would change significantly, although some changes could be made.
