Noyb: Meta prohibited from use of personal data for advertisment

Meta (Facebook and Instagram) prohibited from using personal data for advertisement. Major blow to Meta's business model in Europe, following noyb litigation. Fine for Meta more than tenfold from € 28 million to € 390 million. Third case on WhatsApp pending.


Max Schrems: "Instead of having a 'yes/no' option for personalized ads, they just moved the consent clause in the terms and conditions. This is not just unfair but clearly illegal. We are not aware of any other company that has tried to ignore the GDPR in such an arrogant way."

Bloomberg: Microsoft Hopes OpenAI’s Chatbot Will Make Bing Smarter

ChatGPT’s accuracy will be key to timing of any rollout

Microsoft Corp. is preparing to add OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot to its Bing search engine in a bid to lure users from rival Google, according to a person familiar with the plans.

Microsoft is betting that the more conversational and contextual replies to users’ queries will win over search users by supplying better-quality answers beyond links, said the person, who did not want to be named discussing confidential product roadmaps that remain in flux.
