CBC News analysis finds thousands of Canadian authors, books in controversial dataset used to train AI

A CBC News investigation has found at least 2,500 copyrighted books written by more than 1,200 Canadian and Québécois authors were shared online as part of a massive — and now defunct — dataset used for artificial intelligence training and research purposes.

The dataset’s existence and general highlights were revealed earlier this year in The Atlantic. It led to an avalanche of writers expressing shock on social media that their work had been included without their permission and sharing their concerns that AI tools could use information from the dataset to generate content in their distinct artistic voice. 

A CBC News analysis of the dataset, called Books3, identified thousands of Canadian and Québécois authors and books in both official languages. 

Although that content represents less than two per cent of the 190,000 plus files in Books3, it reads like a who’s who of the country’s literary community: three quarters of CBC’s Canada Reads contenders and Scotiabank Giller award nominees are featured, along with over a third of all Governor General’s Literary Award finalists.

Authors shocked to find their books used to train AI without permission

Some of Canada’s most famous authors were shocked to find that their books have been used without their permission to train artificial intelligence software. The Writers’ Union of Canada says it is considering a lawsuit, but one law professor says it’s not clear if using the books to train AI is illegal.

Topping the list of Canadian authors with the most books in the dataset is Margaret Atwood, of The Handmaid’s Tale fame, followed by best-selling children and young adult writer Gordon Korman and Nobel Prize winner Alice Munro. 

“I’ve been writing kids books for more than three quarters of my
