Our Italian member firm Lexellent‘s senior partner Ugo Ettore di Stefano is featured in Il Sole 24 Ore, in an in-depth article by Luca Tremolada focusing on chatbots and their ability to learn from us and our questions.

In Europe there is a privacy law governing the processing of personal data and in some chatbots, as we read in ChatGpt’s privacy policy, we, the users, can decide to delete our data. But it will become more complicated when there is no longer a consent to be given, as in the case of mind reading.
