Round-up of the latest news

No action will be taken against Tesla following an investigation by the Dutch Data Protection Authority (DPA) into the images captured by the vehicle’s cameras used in Tesla’s ‘Sentry Mode’ helps owners protect their vehicles against theft or vandalism, but the DPA claimed that the cars were ‘filming everyone who came near the vehicle, and these images were being saved for a very long time’. However, the authority noted that the images were stored in the car, and not shared with Tesla, making the car’s owners responsible. Tesla has modified its Sentry Mode to seek approval for filming from owners and flashing the car’s lights to indicate to passers- by that they are being filmed.

The digital news and media firm Buzzfeed will begin using OpenAI technology for its content. The company claims it will be used to personalise user’s experience on the site. Tech Website CNET is reportedly also using an AI tool to generate articles that are later checked by human editors, but the error rate is thought to be relatively high after the platform acknowledged ‘limitations’. Buzzfeed has also entered into a deal to bring creators to Meta’s platforms.
