OpenAI’s Altman Clashes With EU Commissioner Over AI Regulation

  • EU’s Breton said Altman was attempting to blackmail regulators
  • Altman has been on global tour to speak with officials

OpenAI Inc. Chief Executive Officer Sam Altman’s European goodwill tour devolved into a war of words with European Union regulators after he said his company could pull out of the bloc over its proposed AI Act. 

“The details really matter,” Altman, whose company kicked off the artificial intelligence boom with the release of ChatGPT last year, told reporters in London this week. “We will try to comply, but if we can’t comply we will cease operating.”
