OpenAI‘s CTO, Mira⁣ Murati,‍ was unable to provide⁣ a clear response when asked by The Wall Street ‍Journal’s technology reporter, Joanna Stern, about the data used ⁤to train the company’s text-to-video⁤ generation tool, Sora. This lack of transparency became even more evident ⁤following recent comments from YouTube’s CEO, Neal Mohan.

Mohan’s Remarks

In an interview with Bloomberg’s Emily Chang, Mohan stated, “From a creator’s perspective, when a creator⁣ uploads ‌their hard work to our platform, they have certain expectations. One of those expectations is that the terms ‍of service are going to ⁤be ​abided by. It does not allow ‌for things like transcripts​ or video‍ bits to be downloaded, and ‌that is a clear violation of our terms of ​service. Those are the rules ⁣of the road in terms of content on‍ our platform.”

Essentially, Mohan​ is saying ‍that‍ OpenAI’s use of numerous YouTube videos to⁣ train Sora is a violation of ⁤YouTube’s terms of service.

OpenAI’s Sora

Sora is OpenAI’s AI-based text-to-video generator. The tool has been under scrutiny‍ for its data collection⁤ methods, which involve using large amounts of content from YouTube ⁤videos.

It’s‌ refreshing to see publishers and platforms like YouTube⁤ taking a stand against AI systems using their content‌ without permission. Mohan’s ​stern warning to OpenAI is a clear message to respect the rights of content creators.

Irony in Google’s Stance

However, there’s an element of irony in​ Google’s ⁣stance. Google, which⁢ dominates the Internet search market, uses publisher data to train ‌its search engine and AI.‍ Yet, it warns ⁣OpenAI against doing the⁤ same with YouTube⁢ data.

While ‍it’s⁢ not⁤ a matter of taking sides, it’s ⁣important to note that both tech giants are essentially consuming the ‍open ⁢web, repackaging it, and presenting it as innovation. Of the two, OpenAI appears⁢ more ethically questionable, as it has built its ⁤systems on the ​creativity‍ and work of ​others who were⁤ unaware of their indirect involvement⁢ in creating a massive imitation machine.
