OpenAI CEO Sam Altman Surprised by New York Times Lawsuit Over AI Chatbot
  • 3 months ago
OpenAI CEO Sam Altman said he was "surprised" by the New York Times lawsuit against the company over its AI chatbot ChatGPT. Altman claims OpenAI was in "productive negotiations" with NYT to pay them "a lot of money" to display their content before the lawsuit was filed. He says OpenAI's models don't need to train on specific publishers' data like the NYT and that any single source "doesn't move the needle" for the company. Altman disputes the NYT's allegations that ChatGPT copies or "regurgitates" entire articles, calling such instances a "rare bug."
