ChatGPT is being blocked and banned in many companies and even countries. Does the same await us in Poland?
ChatGPT, created by OpenAI, was recently blocked in Italy due to concerns about user privacy and the possibility of minors using the tool. Other countries, including Germany and the UK, among others, have decided to look into the matter, and they have not ruled out similar steps. What about Poland?
Poland is not among the countries pursuing OpenAI and ChatGPT at this point, Rzeczpospolita reports. The UODO (Office for Personal Data Protection) is not conducting any proceedings in the case. Nor has the DPA received any complaints from companies or individuals on the matter. This does not mean that this will not change in the future, when the ban takes effect in other countries.
OpenAI’s solution has been highly controversial recently due to problems with adequate security. This was seen by Samsung, which introduced ChatGPT for its employees to make their work easier. However, the algorithm was fed sensitive information, which became part of the program’s broad base and thus public. While the Korean company has not abandoned the solution, it has sensitized employees and imposed some restrictions.
ChatGPT has been banned throughout Italy, as well as in the French city of Montpellier. This is probably just the beginning of the blockades, unless OpenAI implements appropriate safeguards.
