Our-Hometown will be hosting a LIVE WEBINAR on Protecting Your Content from AI next month on September 21st at 2PM Eastern.
With so much focus lately on new AI technologies and the limitless potential they represent for news publishers, one negative that has often gone overlooked is the risk of AI scraping your content without your permission.
One way that AI language models train themselves to remain current is to scrape news content from across the internet, making that information available in its database to share with users or applications who may benefit from it. For news publishers who are charging subscribers for access to that information, seeing AI bots scrape and share this information for free is problematic, to say the least.
In fact, some big names have already taken action: Business Insider reports that Amazon and the New York Times are blocking OpenAI’s web crawler.
Join us for a presentation on how Our-Hometown helps to protect our customers from this threat with various safeguards. This includes utilizing paywalls to protect your content, as well as additional options such as blocking AI crawlers and robots.
Fill out the short form below to register for the webinar. As always, registration is free for Our-Hometown customers and members of our Partnered Press Associations.
The cost to general public is $25.
