OpenAI, the parent company to ChatGPT, reached a two-year deal with the American Journalism Project (AJP) to help fund efforts by local outlets to experiment with artificial intelligence technology.
The Sam Altman-led private company behind ChatGPT, last valued at close to $30 billion, announced it has struck a partnership with the American Journalism Project (AJP), a non-profit philanthropic organization that has funded more than 40 media organizations across the U.S.

A new $5+ million partnership aims to explore ways the development of artificial intelligence (AI) can support a thriving, innovative local news field, and ensure local news organizations shape the future of this emerging technology.

CEO Sarabeth Berman: “We make the case for philanthropy: if you care about education in your community, you should be concerned about whether or not the school boards are covered. If you care about immigration, you should be concerned about whether or not our border is properly [reported on]."

That’s why, as part of our local philanthropic partnership work, we’ve heard from nearly 5,000 residents in eight local markets across the country about their experience with journalism in their communities and the local info they need.
