Authors Filed a Lawsuit Nvidia of Utilizing Their Creations to Teach NeMo

When comedian author Sarah Silverman and many other award-winning authors sued ChatGPT for utilizing their work without permission last year, OpenAI made news. And now Nvidia, a chipmaker, is the target of a similar lawsuit. Three writers, Brian Keene, Abdi Nazemian, and Stewart O'Nan, have filed a lawsuit against Nvidia, according to a Reuters article. They claim that the corporation used their copyrighted novels without permission to train its NeMo AI platform, which is known for enabling artificial intelligence.

The writers assert that NeMo's instruction made use of their writings. In October, the training dataset was removed because to concerns about alleged copyright infringement.

According to the authors, Brian Keene, Abdi Nazemian, and Stewart O'Nan, a dataset containing around 196,640 books featured their literary terms. NeMo was trained on this dataset to replicate written language in common usage. Nevertheless, in October, the dataset was taken down due to allegations of copyright violations.

The story goes on to say that the writers claimed that Nvidia's removal of the dataset amounted to an admission that they had used their copyrighted work to train NeMo, infringing on their rights, in a class action filed on Friday night in federal court in San Francisco.

On behalf of American citizens whose copyrighted works were used over the previous three years to train NeMo's huge language models, the writers are requesting an undetermined amount of damages. Prominent literary pieces referenced in the legal dispute encompass Keene's 2008 book "Ghost Walk," Nazemian's 2019 book "Like a Love Story," and O'Nan's 2007 novella "Last Night at the Lobster."
