It’s been hit-after-hit for ride-share company Uber recently, now the company is being sued over sexual assault claims
Uber is being sued in the U.S by 550 women who were allegedly assaulted by drivers on the ride-hailing platform.
The nature of these allegations is incredibly serious.
The filing includes allegations women passengers “were kidnapped, sexually assaulted, sexually battered, raped, falsely imprisoned, stalked, harassed, or otherwise attacked by Uber drivers”.
Uber says sexual assault is a horrific crime and we take every single report seriously.
It added it will continue to keep safety at the heart of it’s work.
Last month, Uber released its second U.S Safety Report, which showed there were almost 1,000 sexual assault incidents, including 141 rape reports, in 2020.
What makes the lawsuit even more damaging for Uber is it could be seen to provide yet more evidence of a toxic culture at the company.
This comes as the man who led UBER’s controversial lobbying efforts in Europe has identified himself as the whistleblower behind the UBER Files investigation.
ChatGPT creator releases tool to detect A.I. generated text
OpenAI has released a software tool that can identify if text has been generated by artificial intelligence
The company behind the popular chatbot ChatGPT says it has trained a language model to distinguish between something written by a human, and A.I.
‘AI Classifier’ uses a variety of providers to address issues such as automated misinformation campaigns and academic dishonesty.
The detection tool is very unreliable on texts under one thousand characters, and AI-written text can be edited to trick the classifier.
Many schools across the world have already banned ChatGPT from being used for projects.

Musk says investors in the proposed class action have no independent right to obtain damages.
The CEO believes he properly disclosed his stakes in Tesla and the former SolarCity Corp on several occasions, as per requirements.
Eurostar trains empty with Brexit leading to border delays
Eurostar boss says peak trains are empty because of post-Brexit passport delays
You can perhaps understand why British residents are becoming increasingly frustrated by Brexit.
During peak hour in London, Eurostar trains are running across the Channel with hundreds of empty places.
Around 350 of 900 seats are normally left unsold on the first services between London, Paris and Brussels despite “huge demand”.
It’s all because border police can’t process passports quickly enough.
