All of this “balance”… After controversy arose in Europe over the implications of a very strict artificial intelligence (AI) framework for ChatGPT, Sam Altman spoke much more diplomatically on Friday, May 26 in Paris: “We need to find the right balance between regulation and innovation,” pleaded OpenAI’s CEO before a rapt audience of techies and entrepreneurs gathered at Paris startup incubator Station F. In front of him, the minister’s delegate for digital issues, Jean-Noel Barro, introduced the arrival. “sat down” using the same formula. A sign of a common desire to be polite.
This tone reflects some de-escalation compared to the remarks reported by the British media on Wednesday, May 24.

The latest version issued by the European Parliament therefore requires publishers of large multi-purpose AI models to describe the data on which the software was trained, to ensure its quality and also to ensure that it does not contain the risk of discriminatory bias or the publication of dangerous content. “These text and image databases are gigantic. If we were asked, for example, to be 100% sure that the element was not there, it would be difficult.”she begged.
Another very sensitive point: copyright. Parliament requests a list of all protected documents and work used to prepare the artificial intelligence system. And Mr Barro, like the economy minister, Bruno Le Maire, is in favor of compensating the media, artists or rights-holding companies. “The idea of some form of compensation seems reasonable,” Mr. Altman admitted.
