Apple Seeks Collaboration with News Publishers to Enhance AI Capabilities

According to a recent report by The New York Times, Apple has begun negotiations with publishers and news organizations to secure permission to use their content to train its generative AI. The company is reportedly offering multi-year deals worth at least $50 million for access to news archives, although some publishers have concerns about potential legal issues and competition. Apple has been hesitant to use internet-collected data due to privacy commitments. Other companies with generative AIs have faced lawsuits for allegedly using content without permission, including lawsuits from well-known authors against OpenAI and Microsoft.
