G7 data protection authorities point to key concerns on generative AI
The privacy watchdogs of the G7 countries are set to detail a common vision of the data protection challenges of generative AI models like ChatGPT, according to a draft statement seen by EURACTIV.
The data protection and privacy authorities of the United States, France, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom, Canada and Japan have been meeting in Tokyo on Tuesday and Wednesday (20-21 June) for a G7 roundtable to discuss data free flows, enforcement cooperation and emerging technologies.
The risks of generative AI models from the privacy watchdog perspective related to their rapid proliferation in various contexts and domains have taken centre stage, the draft statement reads.
“We recognize that there are growing concerns that generative AI may present risks and potential harms to privacy, data protection, and other fundamental human rights if not properly developed and regulated,” the statement reads.
