Open Source AI needs to require data to be viable

Ah, thanks, I overlooked that link in the definition.

So it seems that the proposed definition is something like midway between Class II and Class I from the paper, due to more lax training data requirements? Maybe not? Class I feels like what I’d expect from “open source.”

I take some comfort in the “sufficiently detailed” data bit, but wonder about whether it’d actually be possible to “recreate a substantially equivalent system” without providing the data. And I’m uncertain about how to test for something like that.

For any AI system that’s deemed “open source,” an important test will be some organization actually doing this recreation to demonstrate that the promise is real.
