Social network X, which is owned by businessman Elon Musk, is distinguished from other platforms by the ability to share age-restricted materials.

An important innovation on the platform involves the requirement of labeling for such materials.

If content not intended for a general audience or considered "for adults" only is posted in communities on platform X, creators will need to appropriately tag the materials.

Dong Wook Chung, who holds the position of senior engineer at X, explained that the innovation is aimed at enhancing safety: only those users who specify their age will gain access to searching such communities.

This decision is part of the updated rules requiring mandatory labeling of communities with "adult" content, otherwise such content may be removed by the system.

It was previously reported that Meta Platforms is launching a new feature that will allow Instagram and Threads users to limit the appearance of political content in their feeds.

The New York Times

"The New York Times" has filed a lawsuit against Microsoft Corp. and the developer of the chatbot ChatGPT, OpenAI, as reported by "Interfax-Ukraine".

The lawsuit, filed in the Federal Court of the Southern District of New York, alleges that ChatGPT and Microsoft's AI assistant Copilot illegally used the newspaper's content to create their products based on artificial intelligence.

The lawsuit claims that the large language models, which form the basis of the defendants' AI solutions, were trained using millions of articles, investigations, reviews, and other materials from "The New York Times", copyrighted, without permission.

The publication demands that Microsoft and OpenAI be held accountable for damages in the "billions of dollars" for this alleged infringement.
