OPC launches investigation into ChatGPT

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada has launched an investigation into the company behind artificial intelligence-powered chatbot ChatGPT.

AI technology and its effects on privacy is a priority for my Office,” Privacy Commissioner Philippe Dufresne says. “We need to keep up with – and stay ahead of – fast-moving technological advances, and that is one of my key focus areas as Commissioner.”

The investigation into OpenAI, the operator of ChatGPT, was launched in response to a complaint alleging the collection, use and disclosure of personal information without consent.

As this is an active investigation, no additional details are available at this time.
