Reddit announced it will begin charging for access to its application programming interface.
Google, OpenAI, Microsoft, and other tech companies have long used Reddit chats to train their artificial intelligence (AI) systems at no cost to them.
This comes amid a rise of AI systems like OpenAI's ChatGPT and the importance of large language models (LLLs) in developing new AI technology.
Additionally, there are concerns new AI systems could be used to create conversation forums that would compete with Reddit.
Reddit's Steve Huffman said new and relevant data is needed by LLM algorithms, which makes Reddit's continuously updated data especially valuable.
However, Huffman said, "We don't need to give all of that value to some of the largest companies in the world for free."
