ChatGPT has undoubtedly marked the lives of many people who have used this tool to enter the world of generative artificial intelligence. The accelerated use of these tools meant that the European Union had to regulate it expressly, approving a few days ago the first artificial intelligence law on the continent.

This new standard, which began to be drafted in 2021, when we did not yet have ChatGPT available (it was launched in November 2022), aims to protect citizens from the most negative effects of artificial intelligence. It does not only focus on ChatGPT, but also regulates video surveillance or control over the copyright of the images used.

The effects of the new AI law on ChatGPT

Although without a doubt one of the things we can ask ourselves the most is: is how ChatGPT is going to change with this new law? In order to be able to answer, it must first be understood that the legislation sets out four levels of risk that are assigned to AIs depending on their uses. In the event that there is a very high level of risk, companies will have to take much tougher control measures. This is where video surveillance systems come in.

But AIs like ChatGPT, even though they perform many different functions, are categorized at the lowest level of risk. This means that its operation will not be too affected in our country, sinceonly different measures in terms of transparency will be required of OpenAI. Although it will always depend on the use we are going to give it. In the case of asking very basic questions, you will only have to take into account that the documentation is complete and that you know how it is done in the processing of your data.

ChatGPT is also categorized into a special risk category that is required to be more transparent. This means that users must be aware that they are “talking” to an artificial intelligence. In this way, all content generated with ChatGPT is going to have to be categorized as “artificially generated or manipulated. In this way, an image created with DALL-E 3 will have to have this warning in our country and throughout the Union.

Beyond this, we can affirm that ChatGPT is not going to be limited in Spain with this new legislation. Only OpenAI is going to have to “get its act together” and comply with data protection regulations to show how they use the data we input and also the control they apply. The only thing they can face is hefty fines from the EU.
