OpenAI and Microsoft have been accused of stealing data to train the ChatGPT artificial intelligence model. The accusation comes in the form of a lawsuit filed against the two companies, alleging that they used copyrighted material without permission. The lawsuit was filed by a group of authors who claim that their work was used without proper attribution or compensation.
The ChatGPT model is a language model developed by OpenAI that is designed to generate human-like responses to text-based prompts. It has been trained on a large dataset of text-based information, which has been compiled from various sources. The lawsuit alleges that some of the data used to train the model was taken from copyrighted material without permission.
Allegations against OpenAI and Microsoft
The lawsuit alleges that OpenAI and Microsoft used copyrighted material from books, articles, and other sources without permission, and that they did not provide proper attribution or compensation to the authors of the original works. The authors claim that their work was used to train the ChatGPT model, and that they were not consulted or compensated for the use of their copyrighted material.
The lawsuit also alleges that OpenAI and Microsoft used a technique called “scraping” to collect data from websites without permission. The authors claim that this technique was used to collect data from their own websites, as well as from other websites that contained their copyrighted material.
The lawsuit against OpenAI and Microsoft raises important legal questions about the use of copyrighted material in the development of artificial intelligence models. If the allegations are true, it could have significant implications for the future development of AI models, as well as for the copyright industry as a whole.
The case could set a precedent for how companies are allowed to use copyrighted material in the development of AI models. It could also lead to changes in the way that data is collected and used, as companies may need to obtain permission from copyright holders before using their material.
