What kind of paint? And most likely it will have to wear off if you don't want to use something like thinner. Base will come off rather easily. Clear will not. The other option is to rent a floor sander/polisher for concrete and go at it that way. Then afterwards give it a good coat of epoxy floor paint.

taking paint off concrete

I used one of those rental random orbit floor sanders from Menards. It was one designed for wood floors. I had to throw regular sand down on the floor while sanding to keep the sandpaper from gumming up. It evin took off some fiberglass resin that was stuck on the floor. Make sure you clean it well before returning it.
Only caution, if you are thinking of sealing your floor with epoxy test a spot that you sanded the paint off. I had spots that it still wouldn't stick to after sanding "clean."
