I. New York Times sues OpenAI and Microsoft for billions

Itโ€™s happening, after threats of lawsuits, the New York times is now suing OpenAI and Microsoft for โ€œbillionsโ€ over copyright infringement. The publisher claims millions of their articles were used to train ChatGPT and Copilot.

Weโ€™ve seen how recently OpenAI has partnered with publisher Axel Springer. The New York times allegedly reached out to OpenAI in April trying a strike an โ€œamicable resolutionโ€, but were refused.

Why it matters: Itโ€™s likely to be a precedence-setting case. Itโ€™s the first time a media company of this size sues an AI platform. According to Cecilia Ziniti, IP and AI lawyer, itโ€™s the โ€œthe best case yet alleging that generative AI is copyright infringementโ€. ย The result is likely to have significant consequences and implications for both the AI landscape and copyright of creative content.

In Focus

3 predictions in AI for 2024 (from a16zโ€™s Big Ideas in Tech)

I listened to a16zโ€™s podcast over the holidays, including a 3-part series on Big Ideas in Tech 2024. It gives perspectives from renowned thought leaders on ideas the believe will drive innovation in tech over the coming year.

โ€

Hereโ€™s my 3 favourite ideas mentioned in the AI and chatbots space:

  • The focus from AI companies will move from models to UX. Products like ChatGPT, Bard and Midjourney have succeeded largely due to having the best models out there, but what happens when chatbots like Poe and Perplexity allows you to easily choose between models like GPT-4, Claude 2.1, Gemini, Mistral and more, right inside the same interface? Models are getting increasingly commoditised, and user experience will be a key for building a moat for AI companies going forward.
  • Voice-first apps will become integral to our lives. Microsoftโ€™s CEO called the past generations of voice assistants (like Siri and Alexa) โ€œdumb as a rockโ€. Voice has been relatively limited as an interface for technology for other things than very straightforward tasks (โ€œhey Siri, play Beast of Burden by the Rolling Stones")โ€ฆ until now. The biggest a-ha for me personally after starting to use the voice functionality in ChatGPT has been discovering how useful it can be on-the-go. After experiencing ChatGPT sans keyboard I canโ€™t help but agree, voice-first AI apps will definitely be a thing this year.
  • AI will supercharge the future of health. Healthcareโ€™s high reliance on manual data input (think pagers and fax machines) makes it ready for AI adoption. The regulatory landscape for implementing AI in healthcare (with the FDAโ€™s framework) is also likely to make things easier. On a related note, Bill Gates is also bullish on AI for healthcare; from his recently published 2024 predictions: โ€œartificial intelligence is about to accelerate the rate of new discoveries at a pace weโ€™ve never seen beforeโ€.
