Google Wants to Use All Sites for AI Training

Training its AI has been a prime concern for Google ever since ChatGPT broke onto the scene. In spite of the fact that this is the case, there are copyright laws that might make this harder than might have been the case otherwise. Hence, Google is trying to urge lawmakers around the world to change these laws in order to make it easier for them to get their hands on valuable data that can make for more robust AI models.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that Google is trying to petition the Australian government as of right now. Google wants to make it so that all web content is available for AI training by default, giving website owners the option to opt out if they so choose.

The problem here is that brands might find that their competitors are able to use their data to generate content similar to their own. Not only will this diminish the overall value of their own brand, but these companies might also lose their competitive edge with all things having been considered and taken into account.

Google’s goal here is that it wants to treat mining website data for AI training the same way it does web crawling for its SERP. However, the implications of AI model training might be far more severe because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up changing the face of the internet as we know it.

It will be interesting to see how the Australian government responds to these demands. The way things pan out could shape the future of the AI race, and Google needs to pull out all the stops if it wants to be a match for OpenAI. Failing to do so could lead to Google suffering the same fate as Yahoo, which similarly failed to innovate despite having an enormous head start which it squandered thereby allowing Google to become more or less synonymous with online search engines that people tend to use every day.
