News Corp. latest to make content deal with OpenAI

The scramble for AI content deals continues with OpenAI sealing its rumored deal with Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. From Fox Business:

The agreement allows Microsoft-backed OpenAI to display mastheads from major News Corp. publications in response to user questions, and to use current and archived content from several outlets in order to enhance its AI tools.

Covered outlets include: “The Wall Street Journal, Barron's, MarketWatch and the New York Post in the U.S.; The Times and The Sun and others out of the U.K.; as well as multiple Australian publications like The Herald Sun and The Courier Mail.”

It's a big deal; a crop of widely-read publications with huge archives. OpenAI CEO Sam Altman called it a “proud moment for journalism and technology.” News Corp CEO Robert Thomson called Altman a “principled partner.” No further details about the deal were disclosed.
