OpenAI CTO Unsure About Social Media Data Usage, Emphasizes Adherence to Data Selection Principles

March 18, 2024 – In a recent report, it was stated that Mira Murati, the Chief Technology Officer of OpenAI, expressed uncertainty regarding whether the organization had utilized data from social media platforms.

Murati emphasized that OpenAI strictly adheres to the principle of using “publicly available data or data that has been appropriately licensed” in its data selection process. However, when pressed for more detailed information, she cautiously declined to reveal any further specifics.

According to public information, Murati, originally from Albania, joined OpenAI as a researcher in 2018 and currently serves as the CTO. At OpenAI, she has led the company’s work on several significant projects, including ChatGPT, Dall-E, and Codex, while overseeing research, product, and safety teams.

It is reported that Sora, an upcoming project from OpenAI, is expected to be released later this year. The company plans to incorporate audio capabilities into Sora in the future, aiming to enhance the realism of generated video scenes.

Currently, the cost of generating videos using Sora is reportedly high. However, OpenAI is actively working on optimizing its technology to reduce costs and improve generation efficiency.

Meanwhile, several copyright owners have filed lawsuits against companies developing artificial intelligence, accusing them of misusing copyrighted works in AI training. The key issue surrounding whether AI training qualifies as “fair use” under copyright law remains unresolved in relevant US courts.
