Instagram is reportedly working on its own generative AI. Generative AI also known as ChatGPT has taken the social media by storm, and the Meta-owned app does not want to be caught napping.

According to reliable @alex193a, the social media is working on the ability to generate custom stickers using AI. With the feature, you will be able to create your own stickers. This will be made possible when you enter a phrase which will then generate custom stickers using generative AI.

This is probably for a future release; with exact date not known. That said, it would be nice to have a feature that helps you generate customs stickers on Instagram.

In other news, ChatGPT is now available once again in Italy after making changes as required by the Italian authorities. Recall that Italy’s Privacy Guarantor had last month ordered that ChatGPT be blocked in the country over concerns OpenAI violates the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) through the way it handles data.

The regulator gad said at the time that there was no “legal basis” for OpenAI’s bulk collection of data for training ChatGPT’s model. The Privacy Guarantor added that ChatGPT does not often process data correctly amidst concerns about a flaw that led to the leaking of sensitive user data sometimes in March.

The Italian regulator also said OpenAI was not doing enough to protect children. Though ChatGPT is said to be designed for users above the age of 13 according to the company, there is no age check to stop those below the age limit from accessing sensitive information, the Privacy Guarantor officials said.

OpenAI was then given 20 days from the day the deadline was given to address all areas of concerns or face a fine of up to $21.8 million or a maximum four percent of its annual worldwide turnover.

Microsoft, meanwhile, is pushing hard to ensure it remains ahead of others in generative AI. The company recently added ChatGPT AI to its SwiftKey keyboard on Android.

In a blog post a couple of days back, Microsoft said “we’re excited to share new AI-powered experiences that extend these capabilities to millions of additional people across devices and around the globe!”

Italy’s order on ChatGPT is likely to sensitize other countries to pay closer attention to OpenAI even as more companies and products begin to adopt the technology.
