The government is not considering regulating the artificial intelligence chatbot ChatGPT, Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno said at a parliamentary committee meeting Friday.

Concerns over ChatGPT are growing in many countries, with Italian authorities moving to temporarily ban the use of the AI tool to protect personal information.

At the committee meeting, economic security minister Sanae Takaichi said that there is no need to regulate ChatGPT, while underlining the importance of measures to reduce the risk of personal data leaks involving the technology.
