By and large, the world is fascinated by the possibilities of artificial intelligence. But, two authors have filed a lawsuit against OpenAI — the developers behind ChatGPT. We will review the legal complaint and how it may affect chatbots in the future…
Authors Claim ChatGPT is “Too Accurate”
On Jul 5, 2023, the suit was filed against OpenAI in San Francisco federal court.
Authors, Paul Tremblay and Mone Awad, allege that ChatGPT generated a “very accurate” summary. From that, the writers are accusing openAI of instructing the chatbot in their copyrighted material.
BASICALLY, THE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE PROGRAM WAS TAUGHT DATA IT WAS NOT AUTHORIZED TO LEARN.
To those unfamiliar with how A.I. works, gargantuan amounts of information are fed into its massive “library.” Then, it uses that library to generate text.
Here is a video from ByteByteGo that breaks down the tech side of it in simple terms.
While we do know overall how ChatGPT works, OpenAI is not forthcoming on where they acquire their input…
The research companies maintain no wrongdoing and that the A.I. learns from:
- Web Crawling
- Archived books
- Sites like Wikipedia
Nonetheless, these two authors believe that ChatGPT used their books without consent. And if they win, there could be consequences for the A.I. revolution…
Will Lawsuit Slow Down A.I.?
As for what could happen to ChatGPT if the courts rule in favor of the authors, it won’t likely affect development in the industry.
However, it will probably lead to regulations surrounding ownership and payment for data use.
Artificial intelligence is a whole new frontier. And, it’s clear we still have a lot to figure out.
