OpenAI responds again to New York Times copyright lawsuit

OpenAI issued a public response to the New York Times' copyright lawsuit early this morning, calling the New York Times' lawsuit "baseless" and summarizing its position in the following four points:

Our goal is to support a healthy news ecosystem, be a good partner, and create mutually beneficial opportunities. With this in mind, we seek to form partnerships with news organizations.

While OpenAI respects the legal rights to own copyrighted works and provides opt-out options for training data, it believes that using data from the Internet to train AI models falls within the scope of fair use rules, following long-standing and widely accepted precedent. support.

Just as humans receive a broad education to learn how to solve new problems, we want our AI models to be able to observe information from around the world, including information from every language, culture, and industry. Rumination (recurrence of content) is a rare error and we are working hard to reduce it to zero.

OpenAI believes that the New York Times does not "tell the whole story" and the "rumination" it causes seems to come from articles from many years ago that are widely circulated on multiple third-party websites. OpenAI also pointed out that the New York Times suspected of deliberately manipulating prompt words to paraphrase excerpts of articles, or carefully selected "regurgitated" examples from multiple attempts.

Additionally, OpenAI reiterated its desire to have a constructive relationship with The New York Times and respect its rich history.

According to Bloomberg, investment bank Jefferies analyst Edison Lee cited industry surveys in an investor report on Sunday that showed Apple had an unusually sluggish start to the year in China, with iPhone sales falling in the first week of 2024. There was a cliff-like decline, plummeting 30% compared with the same period in previous years.

Other Android brands and Huawei achieved relatively stable year-on-year growth during this period, with Huawei climbing the fastest thanks to the return of the Huawei Mate 60 series. Jefferies estimates that Huawei’s smartphone market shipments last year were 35 million units.

In addition, Jefferies said that despite Apple's significant price cuts on major e-commerce platforms in China, it still failed to stimulate sales growth. Therefore, Jefferies also predicts that Apple's iPhone sales will decline by double digits in 2024.

Robotics experts say the artificial intelligence industry will soon enter a "winter period"

Recently, the famous robotics expert Rodney Brooks warned: "The artificial intelligence industry is at the peak of the 'hype cycle' and may soon enter the 'winter period.'"

In his view, although artificial intelligence has made unprecedented progress, it is still in a hype cycle with a history of more than 60 years. The AI ​​industry may soon be stagnant for several years until the next big breakthrough occurs.

Looking to the future, Rodney Brooks cautiously believes that the emergence of the next generation of general artificial intelligence will not occur until at least 2048, and even the creation of a robot as smart as a dog is still far away. It will take a long time for the artificial intelligence industry to achieve real breakthroughs.
