The fear and tension that led to Sam Altmans ouster at OpenAI Ilya Sutskever, a respected AI researcher who co-founded OpenAI with Altman and nine other people, was increasingly worried that OpenAIs technology could be dangerous and that Altman was not paying enough attention to that risk.

More disruption at OpenAI - NYTimes just now I think the paywall is only for artiles older than two weeks but not sure since I've had a subscription for decades:

Supposedly it was today but AI ACT agreement in Europe is not reached yet.
This week France, Italy and Germany came with the idea of Self-regulation. In some cases self regulation can be interpreted as no regulation at all.

"If an agreement is not reached this week, this will represent a big missed opportunity for Europe and one of the biggest scandals involving the influence of interest groups mainly foreign in the internal affairs of the EU."

Euronews "The fight for the AI Act is a clear case of defending the public good"

Oh yes, German politicans just love "self-regulation".  ::)

Fresh news! AI Act in EU!!

According to Euronews "Member states and the European Parliament have reached a preliminary deal on the Artificial Intelligence Act, the world's first attempt to regulate the fast-evolving technology in a comprehensive, ethics-based manner. "

"Historic! The EU becomes the very first continent to set clear rules for the use of AI," said Thierry Breton, the European Commissioner for the internal market who took part in the debate. "The AI Act is much more than a rulebook it's a launchpad for EU startups and researchers to lead the global AI race."

LOL this will change nothing in the countries that have a different opinion. Going to be interesting. But nice to know we are protected in China, the place that violates copyrights, trademarks and patents, from all over the world.

Yes, OK someone had to tune and enter the prompts to refine the image. I suppose that's the argument in favor?

This isn't exactly news, but I thought it was still worth sharing, because this is just so bizzare:

I just stumbled upon this movies webpage and they use AI generated images instead of photos of actors.  :o motionpicturemagazine.com



Some of the actors are hardly recognizable.

And I also found a website for Asian cooking recipes that also uses AI generated images.
asian-foodie.de



And some of the results are, well, let's say questionable.
Okonomiyaki. The real thing on the left and the AI version on the right. I'd be scared if my Okonomiyaki looked like this.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The New York Times sued OpenAI and Microsoft on Wednesday, accusing them of using millions of the newspaper's articles without permission to help train chatbots to provide information to readers.

The newspaper's complaint, filed in Manhattan federal court, accused OpenAI and Microsoft of trying to "free-ride on The Times's massive investment in its journalism" by using it to provide alternative means to deliver information to readers.

"There is nothing 'transformative' about using The Times's content without payment to create products that substitute for The Times and steal audiences away from it," the Times said.

The case is New York Times Co v Microsoft Corp et al, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, No. 23-11195.

Yes, I should post these here not where I did.  👍

The important part of these cases is Fair Use claimed by the scraping of data vs the copyrights of the people who create the original data.

It is a good article.

There are a lot of legal things to clear up with how to use ai responsibly.

I certainly hope midjourney, stable, open ai all license our content properly from the agencies.

Even though this is old, it's worth reading, in my opinion.


Sep. 26, 2023 5:23 AM ETGetty Images Holdings, Inc. (GETY) StockGOOG, MSFT, BIDU, NVDA, META, BABA, GOOGL
By: Ravikash, SA News Editor

Getty Images (NYSE:GETY) on Monday launched a generative artificial intelligence, or AI, tool which will produce images from the company's content library.

The model called Generative AI by Getty Images, is trained on the Edify model architecture, which is part of Nvidia's (NVDA) NVIDIA Picasso, a foundry for generative AI models for visual design.

The company said the AI tool is trained only from Getty Images' creative library, including exclusive premium content, with full indemnification for commercial use.

In addition, contributors will be compensated for any inclusion of their content in the training set, according to the company.

Earlier this year, Getty which holds rights to millions of images filed a lawsuit in the U.S. against Stability AI, developers of AI image generator Stable Diffusion, for allegedly using images without consent.

"We've created a service that allows brands and marketers to safely embrace AI and stretch their creative possibilities, while compensating creators for inclusion of their visuals in the underlying training sets," said Grant Farhall, Chief Product Officer at Getty.

Getty added that customers will soon be able to customize the AI tool with proprietary data to produce images with their unique brand style and language. However, this and other service advancements will be added later this year.

The AI tool will not use the company's news photo collection, part of an effort to prevent the generation of deepfakes, Bloomberg News reported citing, Getty's CEO Craig Peters.

Generative AI services have taken the world by storm, since the launch of Microsoft (MSFT)-backed OpenAI's ChatGPT. The different types of large language models, or LLMs, which can provide services such as content and image generation, to name a few, are being used globally. However, there also have been questions about whether the tools benefit from the work of artists, authors, and photographers.

Earlier this month, OpenAI was sued in a New York federal court by a number of authors, including George R.R. Martin and John Grisham over alleged copyright infringement.

Besides Getty's lawsuit against Stability AI, several artists have also sued services including Stable Diffusion and Midjourney, according to the Bloomberg report.

Earlier In September, Microsoft reportedly said it would defend buyers of its AI products from copyright infringement suits, in an effort to allay concerns customers may have about using its generated content based on existing work.

Companies globally have launched their own LLMs. Baidu's (BIDU) Ernie Bot, Alibaba's (BABA) Tongyi Qianwen and Tongyi Wanxiang, Alphabet's unit (GOOG) (GOOGL) Google's Bard, OpenAI's upcoming text-to-image AI tool DALLE 3, Meta Platforms' (META) AudioCraft, SeamlessM4T, and Llama 2, are some of them.

Interesting article co-written by a journalist and a law professor about where the fair use argument has succeeded - and failed - in prior cases. The key issue, IMO, is that things that might be fair use by an individual for personal use, or researchers for academic use are not so if done by a for-profit company for commercial use.

https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2024/02/why-the-new-york-times-might-win-its-copyright-lawsuit-against-openai/

After a discussion of why Google won its case about building a search engine for books, including that it was built to be unable to produce no more than snippets, the article says:

"Ultimately, the fate of these companies may depend on whether judges feel that the companies have made a good-faith effort to color inside the lines. If generative models never regurgitated copyrighted material, then defendants would have a compelling argument that it is transformative. The fact that the models occasionally produce near-perfect copies of other peoples creative work makes the case more complicated and could lead judges to view these companies more skeptically."

The above is about Text and writing, not photos. If the AI for images, starts popping out "near-perfect copies of other peoples creative work" then there would be some complications. That has been the defense, so far, for art, that the new images are not one to one traceable back to any other work.

I think the artists have a point when AI is using their style, and maybe allowing the association with their name. In a similar way, how can AI use the likeness of famous people, in creations, that look in many ways, much like those famous people. That shouldn't be allowed.



Specific person arguments aside, how is this allowed? (and I don't mean the horse with ahead coming out of it's behind, or the others with 5/6 legs)  :D

Google is now also playing in the AI league.
With the Gemini model Google is attacking at the forefront. Gemini is a multimodal model that can process text, images, video, music and other documents such as PDFs as inputs and generate corresponding outputs.

Google offers a cloud-based API platform for using and developing your own AI models, which can be created from the smaller Gema models.
Even some third-party open source models can be used.

In my opinion, Google created a strong overall package of AI models, API and cloud environment.
Despite the current problems I would assume that Google has a big chance to take the first place from Open AI in the long term.

Being Woke and diverse has created the opposite of what an honest AI would do.

"It appears that in trying to solve one problem - bias - the tech giant has created another: output which tries so hard to be politically correct that it ends up being absurd."

"Gemini also generated German soldiers from World War Two, incorrectly featuring a black man and Asian woman."

Reverse Bias is still bias. While trying to compensate for what the AI got from general images, they have created a mockery.

"When the AI was asked to show a picture of a White person, Gemini said it could not fulfill the request because it "reinforces harmful stereotypes and generalizations about people based on their race."  :o

Yes, I read that, just like Gemini couldn't answer the question of whether Elon Musk's meme tweets or Adolf Hitler did more harm to the society.
https://gemini.google.com/share/231396168632?hl=en

Google is currently lagging far behind Open AI, so they had to rush and tried to play it safe on all potential ethical issues, because it takes much time to adjust the algorithm for appropriate answers. I mean political correctness is such a complex thing that even many humans fail. In addition, we currently have political "overcorrectness" and minorities are disproportionately "favored", so you just can loose nowdays if you start from the scratch and rush.
But as long as the advantages for professional applications like chemistry, medicine, automotive, etc. outweigh, nobody will talk about such cases in the future.
 
For the image generator it would be easy just to block all such prompts by a giving error of an inappropriate request just like for example Microsoft's Bing image creator does.

////Edit:
Found this demo of Gemini's model capabilities.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIZAiXYceBI

If this isn't staged at all, it is really impressive.
Reminds me of the TARS robot from the Interstellar movie.

////Edit2:
What about the AI google ads capabilities?
https://youtu.be/kyTu3mgGfUA?t=78

Do you really believe people will still search for photos on agencies, when they will use all-in-one AI suites in 3 to 4 years?
People won't care about less quality that much. They will use it because they can save time and earn more money by just being more productive.
