3. The New York Times bars usage of its content for AI model training

The New York Times has blocked the use of its content for AI model training. Recent Terms of Service update prohibits content utilisation, including text, images, audio, and more, for any AI system development. Permission required for automated tools like crawlers. Aimed at preventing unauthorised data use, this follows Google's policy update. Concerns over AI models using copyrighted web data also prompted the move, The Verge reported.

4. Indian EdTech companies utilise AI to reduce spending, control hiring

Indian edtech companies turn to AI, particularly Generative AI, to address financial challenges. Striving to reduce losses and achieve self-sustainability amid funding constraints, these firms are integrating AI to enhance efficiency. Edtech startup Disprz, having secured $30 million in series C funding, aims to leverage AI for core functions, ensuring improved efficiency and scalability without substantial workforce expansion, according to a Moneycontrol report.

5. AI's dual role in literature: Threat and inspiration for authors

Writers are quite concerned about AI's impact on creativity, with over 10,000 endorsing a plea against unauthorised use of copyrighted work, according to the AP report. However, simultaneously, AI has also become a narrative element, influencing a rising number of novelists. From job loss to the metaverse, AI's presence in contemporary culture has actually seeped into fiction, exploring human dilemmas.

Ryan Doherty, vice president and editorial director at Celadon Books, stated: “We've been seeing more and more about AI in book proposals.”

Sike, a novel starring an AI psychiatrist, was just signed by the publishing house.

“It's the zeitgeist right now. And whatever is in the cultural zeitgeist seeps into fiction,” Doherty said.
