AI training with CC licensed material is a challenge to open licensing models and philosophy, which has been signalled in the open movement for several years. At least since 2017, when IBM used CC licensed photos, obtained from Flickr, by IBM for AI training. The "AI_Commons" project has been launched by the Open Future Foundation to investigate this case, seen as emblematic for a range of challenges that signal tension between open licensing and protection of basic rights (like privacy). During the session we will present initial results of our investigation of this case.
