Connecting the EU-Sam Altman

AI-powered ChatGPT, backed by Microsoft, has created new opportunities around AI and the fear surrounding its potential has sparked excitement and alarm – and led to clashes with managers.

In London, Sam Altman angered EU officials after he told reporters that OpenAI would have to “stop working” at the union if future rules were too strict.

OpenAI first ran afoul of regulators in March, when Italian data regulator Garante banned the app domestically, accusing OpenAI of violating European privacy laws. ChatGPT is back online after the company implemented new privacy measures for users.

Microsoft later paid billions of dollars to support OpenAI and now uses the company’s technology in several of its products — sparking competition from Google, which has made similar announcements.
