Time Magazine, the iconic red-bordered former news weekly founded 101-years ago by print magnate Henry Luce (who also founded Fortune and Life), appears to be diving headfirst into the generative AI age with partnerships with major AI startups OpenAI and ElevenLabs announced today.

Partnering with OpenAI to serve Time content through ChatGPT while training AI on it

First up, Time is partnering with OpenAI, creator of ChatGPT and the underlying GPT-4o and GPT series of models, as well as DALL-E 3, Whisper, Codex, and others.

Time will also get access to new OpenAI tools and models it can use in the course of its journalism and business endeavors.

In fact, the tie-up with Time is the eighth publicly disclosed partnership OpenAI has struck with a major media company, leading to my conclusion last month that OpenAI is devouring the media industry player by player. To review, here are all the media companies OpenAI has partnered with that I know of:

Notable holdouts to trend of media companies partnering with OpenAI include the New York Times Company, which is suing OpenAI and Microsoft over alleged copyright infringement for OpenAI’s apparent training on New York Times news articles and other content, and Condé Nast, publisher of Wired (where my wife works as editor-in-chief), Vogue, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker and other premium media brands. OpenAI has said the New York Times lawsuit is “without merit.”

Partnering with ElevenLabs on automated article voice overs on Time.com

Separately but relatedly for Time embracing AI tools, the voice cloning and audio AI startup ElevenLabs also announced it is working with the media brand.
