Google at some time addressed the AI quote. It's just speculation, and pretty irrelevant in the end. They will do anything with the data that they can. The most significant ancillary benefit of the books will likely surface in their translation technology.

"The judge ruled that because Google receives advertising money from offering search functions, it is not entitled to the same level of free use of the images as other entities would be."
