◆ I tried using AI chatbot Eulda 2.0… Answer difficult questions
Iruda, an artificial intelligence chatbot that was controversial for hate and biased remarks last year, is returning.
Iruda is a problem with the controversy over hateful and biased remarks about the disabled, sexual minorities, and racial discrimination, and ScatterLab, the developer, collects the conversations of users without explicit consent during the service development process, and exposes some users personal information without filtration. has gone Accordingly, the Personal Information Protection Commission imposed a fine of 100 million won and a fine for negligence for violations of the Personal Information Protection Act, such as unauthorized use of personal information.
Most of these problems have been improved in Iruda 2.0, which will be released this time. ScatterLab newly builds a research-response database to strengthen personal information protection, and the chatbots answers consist entirely of machine-generated sentences. In addition, ▲Abusing detection model ▲Advanced conversation model ▲Abuser penalty system was introduced to respond to abusive speech.
A ScatterLab official said that this Eruda 2.0 does not use real human speech unlike the previous version, but retrieves the answers from the answer database composed of sentences newly created by the machine. It said that some of the sentences written by Scatterlab are also included. In addition to strict pseudonymization of research data, the chatbot can only respond with machine-generated sentences, so there is little risk of personal information exposure.

◆ The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism’s passive attitude is frustrating… Court, give specific answers to OTT music copyright
As before, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism should not give a comprehensive answer simply saying that it has a wide range of discretion, but respond specifically to what the business operator is claiming.
The court demanded that KT and LG U+ respond in detail to the claims made by the operator against the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism in the third pleading for an online video service music copyright lawsuit filed by KT and LG U+ against the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. The courts request is interpreted as an indication that the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has consistently maintained a passive attitude, such as refusing to submit data and asserting a wide range of discretion.
In addition, the court ordered the business side to summarize the allegations and submit them in writing.
On the 17th, at the administrative court in Seocho-gu, Seoul, the third pleading for the cancellation of the approval of the amendment bill for the collection of music copyrights was held by KT and LG U+ against the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
Until the second pleading, business operators requested the submission of evidence used in the music copyright rate calculation process to confirm whether the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism exercised its discretion in the process of deriving the copyright rate and whether the rate derivation was objective.
Previously, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism had been adhering to the claim that there was no additional material to submit, but as the court cited some of the requests of business operators, it is known that the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism had submitted data on overseas cases of OTT music copyrights prior to this argument.
Prior to the pleading, the business operator submitted a preliminary document claiming the principle of proportionality based on the data submitted by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism on the 15th. The principle of proportionality refers to the constitutional principle that, in order for a law that restricts the basic rights of the people to be recognized constitutionally, it must satisfy all four requirements: the legitimacy of the end, the appropriateness of the means, the minimum of infringement, and the balance of legal interests.
Kim Ji-hyeon, a legal representative for KT and LG Uplus, said that he had not seen the entire data submitted by the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism, and prepared a partial defense on the principle of proportionality. He said he wanted to argue.
He continued, saying, “I want to hear the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism’s position on our side’s argument related to the principle of proportionality.
In addition, he said that if there are any parts that need to be confirmed according to the application from the Music Copyright Association during this process, he will apply for a fact inquiry.

Therefore, qualitative growth rather than numerical achievement was suggested as the goal. If you put the numbers first, you will forget your customers. CEO Hwang set the target for the company with the lowest churn rate.

◆Sung-sook Han and Bum-soo Kim, who threw the chairman for Europe… Naver/Kakao, global all-in
Naver and Kakao both put forward mammoth-level personnel in attacking the global market. Naver had former CEO Han Seong-suk take over the European market as soon as he stepped down as CEO, and in Kakao, founder Kim Bum-soo resigned as chairman of the board and expressed his will to take charge of the global business. That said, it is a desperate moment to go beyond the domestic market to the global market.
Naver and Kakao have been knocking on overseas markets so far, so the direction is not much different, but this years move is unusual in terms of weight. As they have already established themselves in the domestic market, they are trying to advance overseas in various business fields to secure new growth engines.
Europe is an important market for Naver. Naver Webtoon has entered various European countries such as France and Germany, ranking first in sales of local webtoon apps. Last year, it focused on investing in local e-commerce companies by investing in Wallapop, the largest resell platform in Spain, and Bestiere, a luxury resell platform in France. The industry believes that Naver can lead Navers commerce business in Europe in light of the precedent of former CEO Han growing his commerce business around smart stores during his tenure as CEO.
Kakao is also taking a similar step by emphasizing globalization. In particular, as Chairman Kim Bum-soo stepped down from his position to focus on targeting the global market, the founder directly started overseas business like Naver.
