New York Times: Don’t use our content to train AI systems

August 12, 2023

Although Google wants all online content available for AI training, the New York Times clearly wants to opt out. The Times has changed its terms of service, aiming to prevent AI companies from using the media organization’s content to train their systems. Many large language models are trained using website content (see: Search the 15.7 million websites in Google’s C4 dataset). You may want to consider adding some similar AI-related messaging to your website’s terms page. The New York Times updated its terms of service page Aug. 3.
