AI Regulation: The biggest news outlets in the world have gathered to demand more openness about the development of generative AI models. They request to be involved in developing guidelines for using artificial intelligence in an open letter to politicians released Tuesday, particularly as it applies to intellectual property rights.

Generative AI has made it possible to create and share synthetic content at a pace and scale that were previously unthinkable. The problem, according to the letter, is that careless use of the technology might threaten the entire media ecosystem by undermining the public’s confidence in the objectivity and caliber of content.

The letter’s signatories claim to favor the appropriate development and application of generative AI technology. However, they also believe that “a legal framework must be developed to protect the content that powers AI applications as well as maintain public trust in the media that promote facts and fuels our democracies.”

Norms for AI education and disclosure

The letter, headlined “Preserving public trust in media through unified AI regulation and practises,” outlines key areas that need to be regulated in light of the quickly developing technology.

These include openness regarding the composition of all training sets used to generate AI models, permission from intellectual property owners to use their work, and cooperative bargaining between media organizations and AI model developers.

Some media corporations and artists have filed lawsuits against AI developers for copyright violations. For instance, Getty Images and comedian Sarah Silverman filed a lawsuit against Stability AI and OpenAI in February.

However, there is also a history behind cooperation. In July, the Associated Press and OpenAI agreed to grant the GPT developer a license to use the AP’s news story library. The sides kept the deal’s financial specifics a secret.

Additionally, the letter writers urge that generative AI models and users “clearly, specifically, and consistently identify their outputs and interactions as including AI-generated content,” as well as take initiatives to remove bias and false information from their services.

Ramifications of Unrestricted AI Deployment

Studies indicate that generative AI, which has been touted as the next frontier in productivity, might add up to $4.4 trillion (€3.99 trillion) annually to the global economy. While this is happening, worries about its potential uses include everything from phony internet reviews to the spread of misinformation, widespread discrimination and surveillance, job losses, and even the eventual extinction of the human species.

The European Publishers’ Council (EPC), a high-level organization of Chairpeople and CEOs of significant European media corporations, is one of the entities backing the letter. The organization has advocated for more than 250 different EU proposals and directives since 1991.

The letter was also signed by Agence France-Presse, European Pressphoto Agency, Gannett | USA TODAY Network, Getty Images, National Writers Union, News Media Alliance, The Associated Press, and Authors Guild. Source
