SAG-AFTRA, the union representing actors and media professionals, has reached a tentative agreement with major record labels including Warner Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment. The agreement covers the period from 2021 to 2026 and includes minimum wage increases and protections against the use of artificial intelligence. Under the agreement, the release of a song that uses a digital replica of an artist's voice will require both the artist's consent and compensation. In addition, the terms "artist," "singer," and "licensed artist" may only be used to refer to individuals. SAG-AFTRA emphasizes that, despite all technology, the essence of music must always be rooted in genuine human expression and experience. The debate has recently gained momentum with the development of high-quality voice cloning and music generators.

OpenAI introduces a new Batch API that offers up to 50 percent discount for asynchronous API tasks such as summarization, translation, and image classification. With the Batch API, you can get results for large numbers of API requests within 24 hours. This requires uploading a JSONL file containing the requests in batch format. Currently, only the /v1/chat/completions endpoint is supported. In addition to the request file and endpoint, you must also specify a 24-hour window for processing. Optionally, custom metadata can be added to the batch. The new batch API reduces costs and provides higher limits for asynchronous tasks. OpenAI expects this to enable more efficient use of its APIs for applications that require a large number of requests.
