This is CNET and here are the stories that matter right now. Instagram is implementing machine learning technology in order to defend against offensive comments, the company disclosed in a blog post. The process will recognize spam or offensive material utilizing an AI's ability to understand human language. And adapt to the way it's presented within the service. The tech already works with a number of different languages and will start with English this week. Preview of Apple's latest MAC OS update are here. Nicknamed High Sierra, the new OS isn't a radical departure from its predecessor, but instead more of an upgrade under the hood. Most functionally present is a new Apple file system that replaces the current one and can handle advanced encryption features and performance speed. For more on what High Sierra has to offer, check out CNet. And finally Bloomberg is reporting that Airbnb may be looking into offering luxury rentals to attract more upscale customers. This could mean that penthouses and mansions would be available for rental, which could explain the company's acquisition of Canadian posh rental service, Luxury Retreats.
