News Corp and ChatGPT developer OpenAI have entered into a strategic agreement to allow OpenAI to display content from News Corp mastheads in response to user questions as it aims to enhance its products and provide its users with reliable information and news sources.

Through the partnership, OpenAI will receive access to current and archived content from News Corp’s major news and information publications which include The Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, MarketWatch, New York Post, The Times and The Daily Telegraph to name a few, it said in a statement.

The partnership does not include access to content from any of News Corp’s other businesses.

“We believe a historic agreement will set new standards for veracity, for virtue and for value in the digital age,” said Robert Thomson, chief executive of News Corp.

“We are delighted to have found principled partners in Sam Altman and his trusty, talented team who understand the commercial and social significance of journalists and journalism,” he added.

To enhance OpenAI’s products News Corp will also share journalistic expertise to help ensure high journalism standards are present across OpenAI’s offerings, it said.

“Our partnership with News Corp is a proud moment for journalism and technology,” said Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI.

“We greatly value News Corp’s history as a leader in reporting breaking news around the world and are excited to enhance our users’ access to its high-quality reporting,” he added.

OpenAI has recently been bolstering its partnerships with publications. It was announced last month that it is entering into a strategic partnership and licensing agreement with The Financial Times (FT).

The partnership aims to enhance ChatGPT's features with attributed content from the FT, help improve its models’ usefulness by incorporating the FT's quality journalism and collaborate on developing new AI products and features for FT readers.
