GPT Chat is an online AI mode trained by OpenAI. It should be accessible from anywhere on the planet with an internet connection.
Some countries, however, have relatively strict controls and may prohibit GPT chat for legal or regulatory reasons. Concerns about artificial intelligence’s potential risks, such as job loss and spreading misinformation, are growing.
Several tech giants, including Twitter CEO Elon Musk, called for the end of this kind of AI system a few weeks ago, fearing the end of the development race.
Limitations in network infrastructure may also play a role. Google recently launched Bard in a few countries but is still in its early stages.
Italy’s decision to ban ChatGPT follows privacy concerns about AI platforms, with the country’s watchdog giving OpenAI 20 days to address the concerns raised.
However, Italy is not the only country that has banned ChatGPT; several countries worldwide banned AI platforms for various reasons.
Beijing will never allow platforms like ChatGPT to operate because the country has strict rules on foreign websites and apps, and China-US relations are at an all-time low. China is concerned that the United States uses artificial intelligence platforms to spread misinformation and change the global narrative.

There is so much misinformation in the war-torn country that we don’t want to risk being exposed to AI platforms developed by American companies.
Platform platforms such as ChatGPT cannot afford to dominate the narrative with the country embroiled in a proxy war with the West.
The Cuban government restricts your use of ChatGPT and imposes strict internet usage rules.
The Middle Eastern country is also known for its strict censorship laws and is currently experiencing mass protests in response to the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini. Relations between Iran and the United States have also weakened since Donald Trump withdrew from the nuclear deal.
While many other governments are considering ways to regulate AI, with some considering how to deal with generic systems such as ChatGPT, hundreds of millions of people have and are still using ChatGPT since its launch in November 2022, making it the fastest-growing consumer app of all time according to the UBS research.
