Various authors have sued OpenAI for copyright infringement. They accuse the company of using books to train AI models.
The Authors Guild and 17 famous authors such as Jonathan Franzen, John Grisham, George R.R. Martin and Jodi Picoult filed the lawsuit in the Southern District of New York. The plaintiffs hope the lawsuit will be classified as a class action.
According to the complaint, OpenAI “copied plaintiffs’ work wholesale, without permission or review” and fed copyrighted material into large language models.
“The earnings of these authors depend on the works they create. But defendant’s programs jeopardize the ability of science fiction writers to make a living because they allow anyone to create—automatically and freely (or very cheaply)—text that they would otherwise pay writers to create,” the lawsuit states.
The authors added that OpenAI’s programs could result in the creation of derivative works “that are based on, imitate, generalize, or paraphrase their books,” which could harm their market.
The lawsuit also alleges that ChatGPT was used by programmer Liam Swain to “write” sequels to George R.R. Martin’s bestselling novel A Song of Ice and Fire, which was adapted into the popular TV series Game of Thrones. Swain used a neural network to create his own versions of these books, which he posted online.
Nvidia is, in a sense, giving away over a hundred games when you buy a GeForce RTX 40 graphics card. In fact, the gift comes with a Game Pass subscription
Nvidia has decided to update gifts for buyers of GeForce RTX 40 video cards, but there are no games in the new set. Or there is, but it depends on how you look at it.
The bottom line is that when purchasing a 3D card, the user will receive three months of Game Pass subscription as a gift. That is, access to more than a hundred games for free. That is, in a sense, we can say that more than a hundred games are included as a gift, but only for three months.
In addition, customers receive a free three-month subscription to the GeForce NOW Priority cloud gaming service. True, it’s not very clear why the owner of a fresh RTX 40 video card needs cloud gaming, but it’s still a gift.
Such gifts come with all RTX 40 cards, but, as always, not in all regions and not even at all retailers. This particular promotion is available in North America and most of Europe. Buyers in Latin America and most of Asia will only receive a Game Pass subscription.
The world’s first mini-PC with a processor like the Asus ROG Ally game console. Edge Z1 is based on Ryzen Z1
AMD earlier this year introduced the Ryzen Z1 and Z1 Extreme hybrid mobile processors, designed for portable consoles. It turned out that a mini-PC with such an APU will soon appear on the market.
The model is called Edge Z1 and is based, as the name suggests, on the base Ryzen Z1 APU. This, for example, underlies the younger version of Asus ROG Ally.
Let’s remember that the Ryzen Z1 has six cores with a frequency of up to 4.9 GHz and an iGPU Radeon 740M with 128 stream processors. The performance of this APU in games is not particularly high due to the rather weak graphics core, but later there will be a version on the Ryzen Z1 Extreme, which is generally the same as the Ryzen 7 7840U.
The ETA Prime channel tested a prototype mini-PC, but since this is a completely ordinary product, it is unlikely that the serial one will be much different. In addition to the mentioned processor, we can note two slots for RAM, a slot for SSD, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2 and USB-C, USB 3, USB 2.0, RJ45 and HDMI ports. Dimensions are not specified, but the PC is very compact.
There is no release date or price yet, but the manufacturer plans to initially enter some kind of crowdfunding platform.
Steam has added support for Sony DualShock and DualSense gamepads
Valve has added support for Sony DualShock and DualSense gamepads in the latest Steam client update, and has also integrated identity APIs to give developers and players the tools and information they need.
In addition, Valve has also added controller-related filters. Players can choose games that support DualShock and DualSense.
Last year, controllers were used in more than three billion Steam gaming sessions:
- 60% – Xbox controller;
- 27% – controllers for PlayStation;
- the remaining 13% is shared between the Steam Deck, Nintendo Switch Pro and hundreds of other controllers.
Four years ago, during the same period (until November 2019), there were 990 million gaming sessions with controllers:
- 76% – Xbox controllers;
- 19% – controllers for PlayStation.
