OpenAI considers EU exit over AI legislation concerns

Share post:

OpenAI’s CEO, Sam Altman, has stated that the business may leave the European Union (EU) if it fails to comply with upcoming artificial intelligence (AI) laws.

The EU’s proposed law is believed to be the first of its type to handle AI regulation expressly. It may require generative AI businesses to reveal the copyrighted content used in training their systems to generate text and visuals.

According to Reuters, Altman indicated that the current draft of the EU AI Act is excessively regulated, and it should be amended. Altman also expressed reservations about OpenAI’s capacity to satisfy certain of the AI Act’s safety and transparency criteria, calling it technically impossible. Before considering a withdrawal, he noted, OpenAI would endeavor to comply with European regulations when they are finalized.

Earlier this month, EU legislators achieved an agreement on the text of the legislation. The law will now be considered by members from the Parliament, the Council, and the Commission to iron out the final elements.

Italy previously banned ChatGPT, citing privacy concerns, OpenAI instituted several updates, including allowing users to delete their history.
