NVIDIA faces a lawsuit for alleged use of copyrighted works in AI training

Nvidia is facing a lawsuit from a group of authors who claim it utilized its intellectual works without permission to train its artificial intelligence (AI) platform NeMo.

Brian Keene, Abdi Nazemian, and Stewart O’Nan stated that their works were part of a data collection of around 196,640 volumes that helped train NeMo to replicate conventional written language until being removed in October “due to reported copyright infringement”.

In a proposed class action filed late Friday night in a San Francisco federal courtroom, the authors framed the removal as Nvidia’s owning “admitted” expert NeMo on the dataset, infringing their copyright.

They are trying to obtain unspecified damages from individuals in the United States whose copyrighted works were used to educate NeMo’s so-called large language goods during the last three decades.

The case encompassed books such as “Ghost Walk” by Keene, “Like a Love Story” by Nazemian, and “Last Night at the Lobster” by O’Nan.

According to the lawsuit, the books were among 196,640 training resources. The proposed class action claimed that NVIDIA’s removal acknowledged infringing materials.

The writers now demand specific damages for themselves and other individuals in the United States whose works were violated by the firm. The lawsuit also said that the dataset was utilized to train NeMo for three years.

Other firms that have been sued for the technology include OpenAI, the creator of the AI platform ChatGPT, and its partner Microsoft.
