OpenAI’s Chatbot, ChatGPT, has been updated to remember and forget specific information as per user instructions. This new feature aims to facilitate more personalized and engaging conversations for users while ensuring their privacy. Users control what the bot retains from their conversations, and it forgets data after 30 days by default. However, any user can instruct the chatbot to forget certain things instantly. OpenAI continues to prioritize user feedback to refine and improve its models over time.

The European Union (EU) has recently ruled in favor of tech giants, making it clear that they cannot be held liable for content posted by users. This verdict came as a result of a lawsuit filed against YouTube and Google in Germany, where the tech giants were accused of copyright infringement. The European Court of Justice declared that unless aware of the illegal activity, tech companies can’t be held accountable. However, if informed of the unlawful conduct, these companies are obliged to act or face penalties. This ruling serves as a significant step towards defining the limits and responsibilities of tech platforms regarding user-generated content.
Google’s DeepMind team has unveiled ImageFX, a new text-to-image AI tool. It uses transformer models to generate images from textual prompts. Notably, the tool operates on a higher level of abstraction than its predecessors – it focuses more on overall structure and less on specifics. This allows images to be manipulated without requiring specific photo-editing software. The technology could have potential uses in video games and movies.
