OpenAI Is Faulted by Media for Using Articles to Train ChatGPT

  • Wall Street Journal, CNN raise concerns about use of stories
  • Journalist says 20 news sources are supplying material

Major news outlets have begun criticizing OpenAI and its ChatGPT software, saying the lab is using their articles to train its artificial intelligence tool without paying them.

“Anyone who wants to use the work of Wall Street Journal journalists to train artificial intelligence should be properly licensing the rights to do so from Dow Jones,” Jason Conti, general counsel for News Corp.’s Dow Jones unit, said in a statement provided to Bloomberg News. “Dow Jones does not have such a deal with OpenAI.”
