LONDON (Bywire News) - In a startling revelation, Conservative MP for Reigate, Crispin Blunt, took to social media to confirm his arrest on allegations of rape and possession of controlled substances. The announcement raises new questions about the political stability within the Conservative Party, especially on the heels of two recent by-election defeats. Blunt disclosed, "I am confirming that MP was me. The fact of the arrest requires a formal notification of the Speaker and then my Chief Whip." The MP insists that his arrest was "unnecessary" and has expressed his willingness to fully cooperate with ongoing police inquiries, stating he is confident the investigation will conclude without any charges. Surrey Police corroborated the MP’s statement, revealing that a man was detained in Horley on Wednesday morning. He has since been released on conditional police bail, pending further investigations. The Tory party has opted for silence, declining to comment on the unfolding situation....

By Foo Yun Chee BRUSSELS - EU police force Europol on Monday warned about the potential misuse of artificial intelligence-powered chatbot ChatGPT in phishing attempts, disinformation and cybercrime, adding to the chorus of concerns ranging from legal to ethical issues. Since its release last year, Microsoft-backed OpenAI's ChatGPT has set off a tech craze, prompting rivals to launch similar products and companies to integrate it or similar technologies into their apps and products. "As the capabilities of LLMs (large language models) such as ChatGPT are actively being improved, the potential exploitation of these types of AI systems by criminals provide a grim outlook," Europol said as it presented its first tech report starting with the chatbot. It singled out the harmful use of ChatGPT in three areas of crime. [IMAGE_GALLERY_1] "ChatGPT's ability to draft highly realistic text makes it a useful tool for phishing purposes," Europol said. With its ability to reproduce language pattern...

LONDON (Bywire News) - An advisor to the United Nations has severely criticised the UK's public broadcaster, the BBC, for totally ignoring Western human rights abuses during a fierce debate about US foreign policy and the environment on Wednesday night's Newsnight programme. Professor Jeffrey Sachs, a current serving Environmental Advisor to the UN, said that the broadcaster's framing of the debate was "not what [he had] expected" when he was asked to come on the show. The climate change expert stated that he had initially been asked to discuss the environment, but claimed that the BBC's choice to instead debate China's human rights abuses - whilst completely ignoring human rights abuses of the West - was "absolutely bizarre". Prior to the interview, the BBC had aired a segment (which was seen by Mr Sachs) detailing how the US's relationship with China was becoming strained due to the Asian nation's record on human rights. The BBC segment then posed the question about whether the USA...

LONDON - Britain's health minister on Thursday said Australian former Prime Minister Tony Abbott would bring huge expertise to a role advising the British government on trade despite his comments that men might be better adapted to authority. "I bow to nobody in my support for everybody to love who they love whoever that is, as you know," Health Secretary Matt Hancock told Sky when asked if he supported the appointment of a man cast by the reporter as a misogynist and homophobe. "But you know we need to have the best experts in the world working in their field and as the former prime minister of Australia, obviously Mr Abbott has a huge amount of experience," Hancock said. Abbott rejects accusations of misogyny. (Reporting by Guy Faulconbridge; Editing by Alistair Smout)...

LONDON (Bywire News) - In a turn of events that has left many political analysts scratching their heads, former Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced his intention to join GB News as a presenter. While Johnson asserts that he is excited to offer his "unvarnished views" on international and domestic issues, critics are questioning whether a media outlet should serve as an extension of a political persona. The announcement was made via a video clip on X, formerly known as Twitter, where Johnson delved into a wide range of topics he plans to address, including Russia, China, the conflict in Ukraine, and the future prospects for the United Kingdom. "I am excited to say that I am shortly going to be joining you on GB News," Johnson declared. "I'm going to be giving this remarkable, new TV channel my unvarnished views on everything from Russia, China, the war in Ukraine, how we meet all those challenges, to the huge opportunities that lie ahead for us." But herein lies the crux of the...

By Anna Tong AI chatbot company Replika is restoring erotic roleplay for some users, Replika CEO Eugenia Kuyda said late on Friday. The company's recent removal of adult content, featured in a report, devastated many users, some of whom considered themselves "married" to their chatbot companions. Replika's chatbots are powered by generative AI, a new technology that has attracted a frenzy of consumer and investor interest due to its ability to foster humanlike interactions. The removal of erotic roleplay and subsequent customer outcry showed how powerfully AI technology can draw people in, and the emotional havoc that code changes can wreak. Any customers who signed up for Replika before Feb. 1, 2023, now have the option to switch back to the earlier more licentious version of the chatbot, Kuyda said in a Facebook post on Friday evening. "A common thread in all your stories was that after the February update, your Replika changed, its personality was gone, and gone was your unique rel...
