 LADDERS '' '''

THE GLOBAL FOUNDER FRAMERS OF THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY, just recently, loudly voiced their debate to move from blogs to an open-source portal that covers more professional and greater scope of work.

'' I ADVISED PATIENCE. ' The reasons for this delay vary. Let's just thank Almighty God, and celebrate our last decade plus of splendid work. The world's challenges, complexities and risks are ticking and zooming. Continued challenges must be watched and understood. And they suggest little moderation in the coming years.' ''

AN OPEN SOURCE PROGRAMMER - IS A PART OF THE COMMUNITY of programmers who openly share their code with the world. Over the past 30 years open source software has helped drive the rise of most of the technologies that consumers use each day, including web browsers, smartphones and mobile apps.

'' LAWSUIT : SELF CODING SOFTWARE '' : IN LATE JUNE - MICROSOFT released a new kind of artificial intelligence technology that could generate its own computer code.

Called Copilot, the tool was designed to speed the work of professional programmers. As they typed on their laptops, it could suggest ready-made blocks of computer code they could instantly add to their own.

Many programmers loved the new tool or were at least intrigued by it. But Matthew Butterick, a programmer, designer, writer and lawyer in Los Angeles, was not one of them. This month, he and a team of other lawyers filed a lawsuit that is seeking class-action status against Microsoft and the other high-profile companies that designed and deployed Copilot.

Like many cutting - edge A.I. technologies, Copilot developed its skills by analyzing vast amounts of data. In this case, it relied on billions of lines of computer code posted on the Internet. Mr. Butterick, 52, equates this process to piracy, because the system does not acknowledge its debt to existing work.

His lawsuit claims that Microsoft and its collaborators violated the legal rights of millions of programmers who spent years writing the original code.

The suit is believed to be the first legal attack on a design technique called ''A.I training,'' which is a way of building artificial intelligence that is poised to remake the tech industry. In recent years, many artists, writers, pundits and privacy activists have complained that companies are training their A.I. systems using data that does not belong to them.

The lawsuit has echoes in the last few decades of the technology industry. In the 1990s and into the 2000s, Microsoft fought the rise of open source software, seeing it as an existential threat to the future of the company's business.

As the importance of open source grew, Microsoft embraced it and even acquired GitHub, a home to open source programmers and a place where they built and stored their code.

Nearly every new generation of technology - even online search engines has faced similar legal challenges. Often, ''there is no statute or case law that covers it,'' said Bradley J. Hulbert, an intellectual property lawyer who specializes in this increasingly important area of the law.

The suit is part of a groundswell of concern over artificial intelligence. Artists, writers, composers and other creative types increasingly worry that companies and researchers are using their work to create new technology without their consent and without providing compensation.

Companies train a wide variety of systems in this way, including art generators, speech recognition systems like Siri and Alexa, and even driverless cars.

Copilot is based on technology built by OpenAI, an artificial intelligence lab in San Francisco backed by a billion dollars in funding from Microsoft. Open AI is at the forefront of the increasingly widespread effort to train artificial intelligence technologies using digital data.

After Microsoft and GitHub released Copilot, GitHub's chief executive, Nat Friedman, tweeted that using existing code to train the system was '' fair use '' of the material under copyright law, an argument often used by companies and researchers who built these systems. But no court case has tested this argument.

''The ambitions of Microsoft and OpenAI go way beyond GitHub and Copilot,'' Mr. Butterick said in an interview. '' They want to train on any data anywhere, for free, without consent, forever.''

IN 2020, OpenAI unveiled a system called GPT-3. Researchers trained the system using enormous amounts of digital text, including thousands of books, Wikipedia articles, chat logs and other data posted to the Internet.

By pinpointing patterns in all that text, this system learned to predict the next word in a sequence. When someone typed a few words into this ''large language model,'' it could complete the thought with entire paragraphs of text. In this way, the system could write its own Twitter posts, speeches and poems and news articles.

Much to the surprise of the researchers who built the system, it could even write computer programs having apparently learned from an untold number of programs posted on the Internet.
