OpenAI to restrict AI technology access in China, other countries

ChatGPT maker OpenAI is planning to block access to technology used to build artificial intelligence products for entities in China and some other countries, a Chinese state-owned newspaper reported on Tuesday.

ChatGPT is not available in mainland China but many Chinese startups have been able to access OpenAI’s application programming interface (API) platform and use it to build their own applications, the Securities Times said.

It added that since late Monday, Chinese users of the platform have received emails warning they are in a “region that OpenAI does not currently support” and that additional measures to block API traffic from some regions would be taken starting July 9.

Numerous Chinese companies have released chatbots powered by their own AI models over the past year. Reuters
