One of the biggest controversies in the AI industry is the use of copyrighted materials to train AI tools. It includes using copyrighted text to train chatbots, copyrighted music to train music generators, copyrighted art to train image generators, Etc. Even if the content is not copyrighted, many people just don’t like the thought of their content being scraped. Well, today, OpenAI announced a tool called Media Manager. This will allow people to opt out of having their information train chatbots.

Many people who post their content to the public do not like AI companies scraping their data to train AI models. For example, the New York Times is in the process of suing OpenAI and Microsoft over allegedly using copyrighted articles for their AI tools. The company alleges ChatGPT can reproduce parts of or entire articles. That case is still going on, so we’ll have to wait for the results.

One thing that gets on people’s nerves the most is the fact that they have no idea if their content is being used to train AI models. People post their images, videos, art, music, stories, etc. to the internet; however, they don’t like the idea that companies can scrap them at their own will. So, this discourages people from posting their content.

Well, this is one thing that the OpenAI media manager wants to address. In a blog post, the company stated that it wants to have a tool in the works by 2025.

The tool itself seems rather ambitious. It will allow OpenAI to identify your content, and you can tell whether or not you want to use your content to train its models. “This will require cutting-edge machine learning research to build a first-ever tool of its kind to help us identify copyrighted text, images, audio, and video across multiple sources and reflect creator preferences,”.

At this point, we don’t completely know how this tool will work. The company wants to work with content creators and regulators to help bring it into reality. So, it’s going to be a bit of a while before we see anything come of it.

However, if OpenAI does this, then other companies should follow suit. People want a way to ensure that AI companies don’t scrape their content without their consent.
