Japan Backs OpenAI Amid Global Ban

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) company OpenAI has gained support from Japan amid global bans and uncertainties. Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary, Hirokazu Matsuno, announced on April 10 that the country would consider incorporating AI technology, including OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot, into government systems, subject to privacy and cybersecurity concerns being addressed.

    The announcement follows an alleged data breach on March 20, where Italy’s data protection watchdog temporarily blocked the chatbot on March 31 and directed OpenAI to restrict data processing for Italian users during an ongoing investigation.

    OpenAI CEO, Sam Altman, visited Japan to meet with government officials, including Prime Minister Fumio Kishida. Matsuno expressed support for OpenAI, stating that the Japanese government would consider adopting the technology if privacy and cybersecurity concerns were addressed.

    Altman expressed enthusiasm about collaborating with Japan’s remarkable talent and creating something exceptional for the Japanese people during a press conference in Tokyo. He also mentioned his amazement at the technology’s adoption in Japan.
