MILAN (Reuters) – Italy’s Data Protection Authority said on Tuesday it would hold a meeting with OpenAI representatives on Wednesday night, after the authority temporarily banned the ChatGPT chatbot.

The Italian authority added that OpenAI sent a letter on Monday to express its willingness to collaborate in order to respect European privacy rules and reach a shared solution.

Last week, Microsoft-backed OpenAI took ChatGPT offline in Italy after the Data Protection Authority temporarily banned the chatbot and launched an investigation into the artificial intelligence app’s alleged violation of privacy rules.
