OpenAI Partners with Le Monde and Prisa Media to Bring More News Content to ChatGPT

OpenAI has announced new partnerships with French and Spanish news organizations, Le Monde and Prisa Media, to bring their content—including El Pais, Cinco Dias, and El Huffpost to ChatGPT, the company's popular chatbot. The partnerships will enable ChatGPT users to engage with high-quality content on recent events and contribute to the training of OpenAI's models.

Brad Lightcap, COO of OpenAI, expressed his excitement about the partnerships, stating that they will enable ChatGPT users to connect with the news in new ways that are interactive and insightful. Louis Dreyfus, CEO of Le Monde, echoed this sentiment, stating that the partnership with OpenAI allows the news organization to expand its reach and uphold its commitment to providing accurate, verified, balanced news stories at scale.

Le Monde, which has established itself as France's leading news outlet with over 600,000 subscribers and 2.2 million unique daily users, sees this collaboration as an opportunity to safeguard its journalistic integrity and revenue streams while adapting to the digital era.

Similarly, Carlos Nuñez, Chairman and CEO of Prisa Media, highlighted the potential of the partnership to present their in-depth, quality journalism in novel ways. "This is a definite step towards the future of news, where technology and human expertise merge to enrich the reader's experience," Nuñez said. Prisa Media, the largest Hispanic media house operating leading brands in Spain, Latin America, and the USA, boasts an impressive reach of over 7 million daily unique users and 1,650 million monthly page views.

Over the coming months, ChatGPT users will be able to interact with relevant news content from these publishers through select summaries with attribution and enhanced links to the original articles, giving users the ability to access additional information or related articles from their news sites.

The partnerships are a strategic move for the news organizations to ensure the dissemination of reliable information to AI users while safeguarding their journalistic integrity and revenue streams. However, the financial details of the partnerships have not been disclosed, and it remains to be seen whether OpenAI's licensing deals with publishers could spell trouble for its rivals.

The announcement comes as OpenAI's failed partnership and legal battle with The New York Times over data to train its AI models is still brewing. However, OpenAI is forging ahead with deals with other publishers, including Shutterstock, The Associated Press, and Axel Springer, owner of Politico and Business Insider, among others.
