Del 1: Sociale medier 

Her finder du historier om eller fra de store sociale platforme, der har en enorm rolle at spille i kontakten mellem udgiver/afsender og modtager.

🏃‍♂️ Medier flokkes om TikTok

Fra Digiday:

“Just don’t call it a pivot to video — this is one with much lower stakes. Yes, publishers are producing more video for a platform they don’t control. No, they’re not doing so in search of ad dollars. Instead, they’re doing it in search of new audiences.”

Et eksempel:

🤔 TikTok overvejer større gennemsigtighed i USA

Fra The Wall Street Journal:

📉 Twitter daler som trafikkilde til medier

Fra Digiday:

🔎 Brasilianere finder uromagere via Instagram

Fra MIT Technology Review:

“In the hours after far-right insurrectionists trashed government buildings in Brazil’s capital on Sunday, a new account popped up on Instagram. 

Called Contragolpe Brasil—a clever play on words that means both “Against the coup Brazil” and “Counterblow Brazil”—it quickly started posting photos of alleged riot participants. The idea was to crowdsource information that could identify “people who attack democracy in Brazil,” making it easier for authorities to find and punish those who escaped arrest on the day. “

🤨 Journalister uden grænser er bekymrede over Musks Twitter

Fra Digiday:

Del 4: Udvikling og tech

Her får du et kig på nogle af ugens historier indenfor den digitale udvikling og teknologi, der enten direkte eller indirekte kan have betydning for medier/udgivere.

⚖ Getty Images sagsøger firmaet bag Stable Diffusion

Hvem har rettighederne til billeder lavet af kunstig intelligens? The Verge kan netop fortælle, at firmaet bag billeddatabasen Getty Images sagsøger Stability AI.

Stability AI står bag ‘Stable Diffusion’, der er en af de mest populære services, der kan omsætte tekstkommandoer (“prompts”) til billeder. Af andre kan nævnes MidJourney og DALL-E.

Den kunstige intelligens går dog ikke ud og skaber et 100% originalt, nyt værk. I stedet læner den sig kraftigt op ad de billeder, den er trænet på.

Og Getty Images’ kæmpe arkiv af fotografier udgør angiveligt en stor del af de træningsdata, Stable Diffusion står på skuldrene af. Billederne har Stability AI hentet via det, man kalder “scraping”, hvor man sender en robot ud og henter ting fra nettet. Det kan for eksempel være tekst, datasæt — eller billeder.

Det åbner en vildt spændende diskussion omkring rettigheder til indhold, i dette tilfælde billeder og fotografier. For hvem ejer egentlig rettighederne til billeder, der er skabt på baggrund af eksisterende billeder — og hvordan skal der i så fald kompenseres?

Det vil Getty nu have skabt en form for konsensus omkring. For det handler nemlig ikke om at bremse udviklingen og få Stability AI til at punge ud, skriver The Verge:

“When asked what remedies against Getty Images would be seeking from Stability AI, Peters said the company was not interested in financial damages or stopping the development of AI art tools, but in creating a new legal status quo (presumably one with favorable licensing terms for Getty Images).”

🤖 CNN-bot skriver artikler – og begår dumme fejl

Fra Futurism:

“CNET is now letting an AI write articles for its site. The problem? It’s kind of a moron. […]

It’s a dumb error, and one that many financially literate people would have the common sense not to take at face value. But then again, the article is written at a level so basic that it would only really be of interest to those with extremely low information about personal finance in the first place, so it seems to run the risk of providing wildly unrealistic expectations — claiming you could earn $10,300 in a year on a $10,000 investment — to the exact readers who don’t know enough to be skeptical.”

🔖 EU: AI-genereret tekst skal deklareres

Fra Dansk Industri:

“En anden ændring, som blev tilføjet i denne uge, er en ændring, som får direkte indflydelse på den nyligt introducerede ChatGPT. Hvis man fremadrettet benytter et AI-system, som genererer kompleks tekst med minimal indflydelse fra mennesker, så skal det være klart for modtager, at et sådan AI-system er blevet benyttet.”

📲 Hvilke data har Apple på dig – og hvordan kan du begrænse det?

Fra Wired:

🔈 Apple genopliver HomePod-højttaleren

Fra Bloomberg:

“Apple Inc. will release a new version of the original HomePod smart speaker after the company had discontinued its predecessor and replaced it with a smaller and cheaper version.”

🤨 OpenAI brugte kenyanske arbejdere til at gøre ChatGPT mindre “toxic”

Fra Time:

“But the success story is not one of Silicon Valley genius alone. In its quest to make ChatGPT less toxic, OpenAI used outsourced Kenyan laborers earning less than $2 per hour, a TIME investigation has found.”

🤖 Bud på, hvad Microsoft kan bruge ChatGPT til

Microsoft er angiveligt interesseret i at investere i OpenAI, der blandt andet står bag den hypede chatbot ‘ChatGPT’.

Fra MIT Technology Review:

“In the meantime, it’s more likely that we are going to see apps such as Outlook and Office get an AI injection, says [Chirag Shah, a computer science professor at the University of Washington who specializes in search engines]. ChatGPT’s potential to help people write more fluently and more quickly could be Microsoft’s killer application. “

🖼 Mød Muse, Googles AI-billedgenerator

Fra VentureBeat:

“2022 was a great year for generative AI, with the release of models such as DALL-E 2, Stable Diffusion, Imagen, and Parti. And 2023 seems to follow on that path as Google introduced its latest text-to-image model, Muse, earlier this month.”
