Insights for What’s Ahead While some countries have implemented bans or restrictions on AI-powered LLMs such as ChatGPT and Google Bard, the effectiveness of these measures is still being determined due to the rapid pace of technological advancements and the ability of users to bypass restrictions. [...] Hong Kong: ChatGPT is effectively banned in Hong Kong due to the government’s increasing control over the internet and restrictions on access to certain websites and services.

[...] As more countries scrutinize the technology, addressing these issues to ensure the responsible development and deployment of AI models in the future becomes ever more important.
