ChatGPT is an advanced AI chatbot trained by OpenAI which interacts in a conversational way.
The government's Data Protection Authority, also known as Garante, accused Microsoft-backed OpenAI of failing to check the age of ChatGPT's users who are supposed to be aged 13 or above.
Like other forms of AI, Generative AI learns how to take actions from past data. It creates brand new content based on that training, instead of simply categorising or identifying data like other AI.
While residents in the country are unable to create OpenAI accounts to access the artificial intelligence-powered (AI) chatbot, virtual private networks and foreign phone numbers are helping some bypass those restrictions.
