Poland probing OpenAI, ChatGPT following GDPR complaint

Poland’s data protection watchdog has confirmed it has opened an investigation into OpenAI over a complaint it received from an applicant. Poland’s Personal Data Protection Office (UODO) has opened an investigation into a complaint against OpenAI’s ChatGPT, with an unnamed applicant accusing the firm of processing data in an “unlawful, unreliable manner.“In a statement on Sept. 20, Jan Nowak, president of the data protection office, said this was not the first time doubts had been cast on ChatGPT’s compliance with Europe’s principles of data protection and privacy.The complaint accuses OpenAI of processing data in an unlawful and unreliable manner, and the rules on which it gathers and processes data are not transparent.Remember we mentioned that regulatory AI landscape in Poland is in its infancy?

The Italian data watchdog also said there is a lack of information for users regarding data collected by OpenAI.In April, regulators in Germany reportedly demanded answers concerning the company’s intentions and ability to comply with the strict data privacy laws enshrined in the EU’s GDPR.The same month, the European Data Protection Board set up a special working group concerning OpenAI.Cointelegraph reached out to OpenAI but did not receive an immediate response. AI Eye: Real uses for AI in crypto, Google’s GPT-4 rival, AI edge for bad employees
