The different governments have put a new march in order to regulate the field of artificial intelligence in recent days. In the United States we saw how the CEO of OpenAI himself, Sam Altman, testified before the US Congress to give his opinion on the regulation, and Europe has preliminarily approved its own regulation called the IA Act.
But the latter could end with fatal consequences for those of us who use ChatGPT in Europe. And it is that its content The main players in Artificial Intelligence are not ending up likingwhich once again do not come from the European Union where we are still a step behind.

Sam Altman does not rule out withdrawing ChatGPT from Europe
It was Sam Altman himself, according to the Financial Times, who warned Brussels that the new regulation could force OpenAI to withdraw their services from Europe. And this would imply that we Europeans could not use ChatGPT, DALL-E 2 or Whisper.
It was in London, in the middle of the tour he did through Europe where Spain was included, where the CEO of OpenAI expressed concern about how strict the new European regulation isstating that “We will try to comply [con la regulación]but if we can’t we will stop operating [en la UE]”.
At first, the AI Act was intended for AIs at risk of dealing with sensitive information such as those for medical purposes, personnel selection, or risk systems for granting loans. But now they want to cover platforms like ChatGPT due to its importance, making OpenAI or any other company responsible for the use that users give it. And this is very difficult a priori, since neither OpenAI nor Google with Bard have control over particular applications.
This is also in addition to the requirement that companies publish the content used with copyright so that the owners of the same can claim compensation. And this finally makes it is really difficult for consumer AI to stay with us in Europe by not finding a way to adapt to the legislation. In addition, once again Europe does not have references in AI, having to legislate in American companies, resulting in these threats such as that of the CEO of Meta for leaving Europe.
What is clear today is that both Google in a statement and OpenAI with a similar message are willing to adapt. But if Europe is so strict they will not hesitate to let this market goas Google did with its expansion of Bard by leaving out all the countries of the European Union by its regulations.
