Google CEO Pichai says company will ‘sort it out’ if OpenAI misused YouTube for AI training

CEO of Alphabet Sundar Pichai stated that Google will “sort it out” if it finds out that OpenAI, supported by Microsoft, used YouTube footage to train an AI model that can produce videos.

In an interview with CNBC’s Deirdre Bosa on Tuesday, OpenAI’s technical leader Mira Murati expressed uncertainty about whether YouTube videos were included in the training data for the company’s Sora model, which was unveiled earlier this year, to the Wall Street Journal in March.

According to Murati, OpenAI has used both licensed and publicly accessible data. A later story from the New York Times stated that OpenAI had transcribed more than a million hours of YouTube content.

When asked if OpenAI might face legal action from Google for breaking the search engine giant’s terms of service, Pichai remained reticent.

Pichai remarked, “Look, I think that’s a question for them to answer.” “I have nothing more to say. Yes, our terms of service are very explicit. Therefore, I believe that often in these situations, we interact with businesses to ensure that they are aware of our terms of service. And we will resolve it.

According to Pichai, Google has procedures in place to determine whether OpenAI disregarded the guidelines. OpenAI has already come under fire from publications like The New York Times for allegedly violating copyright laws and using their articles to train models.

At Google’s I/O conference, Pichai gave a keynote address to developers after which company executives unveiled new AI models, such as Veo, which can create artificial videos. Those who want early access will need to seek Google’s clearance.

On Monday, OpenAI canceled the Google event. By pausing the AI helper and allowing it to examine what is in front of a smartphone camera, the business demonstrated how users of its ChatGPT mobile app would be able to hold realistic voice conversations using an AI model called GPT-4o. Google showcased similar planned features on Tuesday.

Regarding OpenAI, Pichai remarked, “I don’t think they’ve shipped their demo to their users yet.” “I don’t believe it is included in the product.”

Customers that subscribe to OpenAI’s ChatGPT Plus service will have the opportunity to test an early version of the new voice mode in the coming weeks, the company announced in a blog post on Monday. Later this year, Pichai stated, Google’s Gemini chatbot would be able to utilize the multimedia chat features of Project Astra.

Pichai declared, “We’ll get it right; we know exactly how to approach it.”

Using its proprietary Tensor Processing Units (TPUs) and Nvidia’s well-liked graphics processing units, Google has reportedly cut the cost of delivering AI models in online searches by 80% since revealing a peek last year, he said. During the speech, Google announced that it is beginning to show its AI Overviews in search results for all American users.

Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference is scheduled to take place in Cupertino, California in June. In March, Bloomberg revealed that Apple was debating integrating Gemini into the iPhone. Google has had “a great partnership with Apple over the years,” according to Pichai, who spoke to Bosa. Google sends Apple 36 percent of its search advertising revenue from the Safari browser, according to a Google expert witness testifying in court last November.

Pichai stated, “We have concentrated on delivering fantastic experiences for the Apple ecosystem.” We take this extremely seriously, and we have a lot of strategies in place to make sure our products are easily accessible. We’ve tested and found that AI Overviews are a popular feature on iOS nowadays, so we’ll keep doing this, especially for Gemini. We’ll keep trying to get that there.
