OpenAI and Associated Press Partner Up to Utilize Generative AI
OpenAI has been granted access to the expansive archives of the Associated Press, according to Axios. This provides the tech company with a wealth of information, as the American news organization has been around since the mid-19th century.
The partnership is still in its early stages, but it is likely that it will expand in the future. As far as AP is concerned, the company will have access to OpenAI’s AI technology.
Generative AI in the News Industry
Generative AI is highly beneficial to the news industry. For example, GPT-4, a large language model, can be used to summarize articles, identify main points, and offer other insights.
Generative AI is capable of processing information and transforming it into human language. However, it is not always accurate, especially when it comes to chatbots. ChatGPT, an application, can produce many inaccuracies, but can also find errors in programming code.
The Future of Tech Companies and News Organizations
Tech companies and news organizations often have a complex relationship. For example, Canadian news sites and the government there have been in conflict with Google. OpenAI has also been accused of mass scraping the internet for the deployment of training data for AI models.
The Associated Press, as a not-for-profit organization, may be less assertive in this regard. However, the partnership with OpenAI shows that tech companies can work in harmony with news sites. This may offer a glimpse of the future of how tech companies and news organizations interact.
