Negotiations underway for Apple AI training
Apple has apparently taken action to solidify its presence in the world of artificial intelligence by seeking to collaborate with American media houses.
The objective is to acquire the rights to their editorial content in order to train its artificial intelligence systems.
The tech giant has proposed entering into contractual relationships worth tens of millions of dollars that would include recognized titles such as Vogue and The New Yorker, NBC News and many others.
Mixed reaction from media publishers
Although these discussions show significant commitment on the part ofApple Lossless Audio CODEC (ALAC), à improve its artificial intelligence tools, they arouse mixed feelings among the publishers concerned.
Background and ethical considerations
Some of them express concerns about the generosity of the proposed terms, in particular with regard to the potential use of their archives.
Furthermore, the legal implications of how Apple might exploit this content remain an open question, which adds a note of uncertainty to the entire process.
This attempt by Apple to formalize access to content is not unprecedented.
In fact, this is seen as a positive gesture towards ethical values in the development of artificial intelligence, contrasting with the actions of some companies that have been accused of using content without proper authorization.
For example, there have been previous cases including Apple's acquisition of Topsy, which raised questions about privacy and ethical use of data.
