Deputy PM Matteo Salvini and IT expert Ron Moscona are among those who have criticized ChatGPT's interim ban in Italy because to privacy concerns.

ChatGPT was banned in Italy, which caused a great deal of uproar both within the nation and in the computer community. Roberto Salvini, the deputy prime minister of Italy, criticised the block as being too based on privacy concerns.

The Microsoft-backed OpenAI took ChatGPT offline in Italy on Friday in response to complaints made by the national data agency about potential privacy violations and the failure to confirm the users' ages. The independent agency's move made history as the first time a Western nation has taken legal action against an AI-powered chatbot.

The Deputy Prime Minister of Italy posted on Instagram to express his opinions: A translated version of his message reads, " I find the decision of the Privacy Watchdog that forced #ChatGPT to prevent access from Italy disproportionate.”

Salvini claimed that the regulator's action was hypocritical given the abundance of artificial intelligence-based services, citing instances like Bing's chat. Since that "privacy issues touch nearly all online businesses," Salvini claimed that common sense was required.

Salvini stated that the ChatGPT ban would hinder innovation and national commerce, and he expressed his hope for a speedy resolution that would allow the chatbot to once again access Italy.

With each technological revolution come significant changes, dangers and chances. International cooperation between legislators and regulators is necessary for control and regulation, but it cannot be forced according to Salvini.

Ron Moscona, a partner at the global law firm Dorsey & Whitney in its London office and a specialist in technology and data privacy, raised another objection to the prohibition. According to him, the Italian regulators' decision to fully ban a service due to a data breach incident caught them off guard.

OpenAI has disabled ChatGPT for users in Italy at the request of the authorities. However, the corporation asserted that it complies with European privacy laws and is prepared to work with Italy's privacy watchdog. OpenAI asserted that it takes precautions to limit the personal information it collects when training ChatGPT and other AI systems because its objective is for the AI to learn about the world rather than specific people.
