Bringing legal action against OpenAI and Meta
By analyzing huge databases of human writing, systems like ChatGPT can mimic human language.
Meta chose not to respond. The BBC has not received a response from OpenAI.
Along with Ms. Silverman, two other authors are filing the class-action lawsuit.
According to the lawsuit against OpenAI, “their copyrighted materials were ingested and used to train ChatGPT” without the authors’ permission.
Its LLaMa AI technology is the subject of the lawsuit brought against Meta, which owns Facebook and Instagram. The system was later leaked online after being first made available to a small set of users who were primarily engaged in research.
The “foundational large language model” (LLaMa) is created to aid AI research. To put it another way, it’s a sizable AI system that can be applied to a variety of activities.
The authors assert that their books can be found in a dataset that was assembled by a different organization and used to train the LLaMa algorithm.
According to Patrick Goold, a reader in law at City University in London, the outcome of both cases would largely depend on whether or not training a sizable language model qualifies as fair usage.
