It was nailed that Open AI, which created ChatGPT, would not leave Europe.
According to foreign media including TechCrunch, the CEO of OpenAI, Sam Altman, said on his Twitter on the 26th (local time) that he has no plans to leave Europe.
This is a slightly different statement from Altman’s recent public stance. On the 24th, Altman expressed concern about the ‘Artificial Intelligence (AI) Law’ promoted by the European Union (EU) and said, “If it is difficult to comply with the law, the service may have prevent it.”
This comment was interpreted to mean that it would comply with the AI Act if possible, but that it could withdraw from the European market in some cases.
However, Altman said on the day, “I’m very happy to continue serving in Europe. Of course, I have no plans to leave this place.”
While visiting Europe, Altman chatted one after the other with high-ranking politicians in France, Spain, Poland, Germany and Britain. In this meeting, Altman spoke about the future of AI and the progress of ChatGPT.
“We had a very productive conversation about how to regulate AI in Europe,” he said.
Altman’s visit to Europe is due to the AI Act recently approved by the European Parliament.
The EU is working on enacting an AI law from 2021. In particular, since the end of last year, various regulations have been newly added as the Large Language Model (LLM), including ChatGPT, has been in the sight
Under the newly added regulations, companies such as OpenAI and Google must also take some responsibility for how their AI systems are used.
Developers of AI technology are supposed to take some responsibility even if it is difficult to control in which areas their technology is added and used. also It is also required to disclose the copyright works used in AI technology. This provision was designed to allow copyright holders to demand royalties from AI developers.
