The future of AI may lie in paying the content creators who have helped train them, or at least that’s what the creator of ChatGPT believes.
AI seems to be invading absolutely every sector and its popularity has only just begun. ChatGPT is one of the most popular tools that makes use of AI and, unfortunately, in order to train it, it has had to use original material generated by real people.
It is clear that the controversy is served, in fact, copyright legislation for materials created by AI is still being explored. But while this is developing, there is another pending fight and it is that of the content creators who have seen their rights to train the different AIs violated.
All this may seem like a fight in which users have to lose, but it is not. The creator of ChatGPT himself, Sam Altman, has dedicated a series of words about the situation of OpenAI and his vision on this problem. Sam Altman’s company has undoubtedly benefited from the creativity of people.
Given this situation, it is more than normal that many people are upset to see that what they have created is used to train artificial intelligence systems without receiving anything in return. Sam Altman has listened to the complaints that have been launched towards these practices and has commented that they are developing new changes.
Sam Altman envisions a future where creators get paid when ChatGPT uses their style or content
Given these changes, what has been discussed during the interview What’s been done to it is the fact that there are new AI models being prepared right now. These models aim to make, in case the content of any creator or style is used, the person behind these contents receives money in return.
Yes, the change would be quite drastic in general since, until now, the complaints of the people behind ChatGPT being so eloquent or DALL-E having an infinite number of art styles have not been taken into account. It may not be a perfect solution, but at least it shows an interesting path to walk on.
Of course, for the moment this has remained in the air. Sam Altman has not commented on anything else in this regard nor has he put a date on the table. His words will have to be taken with some caution and, in fact, even this may not come true at any time. In the meantime, all that remains is to wait.
