The European Union is close to passing a law that mandates bulk scanning of digital messages, including encrypted ones, to prevent child sexual abuse material (CSAM).

Snapchat AI Turns Prompts Into New Lens

Snapchat is introducing a new on-device AI model that transforms users’ surroundings with augmented reality (AR) based on text prompts.

For example, a prompt like “50s sci-fi film” can instantly alter a user’s appearance and environment.

New AI tools in Lens Studio will also let creators generate face effects, 3D assets, and more using text or image prompts.
