The Morning After: AI models from Apple, NVIDIA and more were reportedly trained on YouTube videos
 Some of the world's largest tech companies trained their AI models on datasets that included transcripts of more than 173,000 YouTube videos without permission. That's according to an investigation from Proof News, which laid out how Apple, NVIDIA and Anthropic, among other companies, used transcripts of YouTube videos from more than 48,000 channels. This goes against YouTube's own platform rules, which Google execs have repeatedly mentioned.

Earlier this month, Apple was criticized for failing to reveal the source of training data for Apple Intelligence, the company's own spin on generative AI.

Not only have these AI models been trained on some of your favorite YouTube stars, like Marques Brownlee and MrBeast, but also Engadget's own Cherlynn Low. (I love you, Cher.)

Intrigued by what else may be part of that dataset? Head over to the Proof News lookup tool.
