GLOBAL FOUNDER FRAMERS : STARS RABO - DEE - HALEEMA - SAHAR - Lakshmi - Zilli - Juniper - Hussain - Salar - Shahrayar - Ahsen - Bilal - Hamza - Zaeem - Danyial, Hanyia, Maria, and the heroic students of the entire world.

! WE GROW TOGETHER : We think smart ! We think now as we head for the greatest goal : '' Conceptualising and Building the greatest university in the world under the total ownership of the students of the entire world. 'Forward looking for generations'. ''

New World : New Jargon. There is no getting away from it. I pray that in the time ahead, as I triple my efforts, the future ahead will help all the global students face this new reality with confidence. '' Welcome to the World Students Society.''

REDDIT HAS LONG BEEN A HOT SPOT for conversation on the Internet. About 57 million people visit the site every day to chat about topics as varied as makeup, video games and pointers for power washing driveways.

In recent years, Reddit's array of chats have also been a free teaching aid for companies like Google, OpenAI and Microsoft. Those companies are using Reddit's conversations in the development of giant artificial intelligence systems that many in Silicon Valley think are on their way to becoming the tech industry's next big thing.

Now Reddit wants to be paid for it. The company said just recently that it began charging companies for access to its application programming interface, or A.P.I., the method through which outside entities can download and process the social network's vast selection of person-to-person conversations.

'' The Reddit corpus of data is really valuable,'' Steve Huffman, founder and chief executive of Reddit, said in an interview. ''But we don't need to give all of that value to some of the largest companies in the world for free.''

The move is one of the first significant examples of a social network's charging for access to the conversations it hosts for the purpose of developing A.I. systems like ChatGPT, OpenAI's popular program.

Those new AI systems could one day lead to big businesses, but they aren't likely to help companies like Reddit very much. In fact, they could be used to create competitors - automated duplicates to Reddit's conversations.

Reddit is also acting as it prepares a possible initial offering on Wall Street this year. The company, which was founded in 2005, makes most of its money through advertising and e-commerce transactions on its platform.

Reddit said it was still ironing out the details of what it would charge for A.P.I. access and it would announce prices in the coming weeks.

Reddit's conversation forums have become valuable commodities as large language models, or L.L.M.s, have become an essential part of creating new A.I. technology.

L.L.M.s are essentially sophisticated algorithms developed by companies like Google and OpenAI, which is a close partner of Microsoft. To the algorithms, the Reddit conversations are data, and they are among the vast pool of material being fed into the L.L.M.s to develop them.

The underlying algorithm that helped to build Bard, Google's conversational A.I. service, is partly trained on Reddit data. OpenAI's Chat GPT cites Reddit data as one of the sources of information it has been trained on.

OTHER COMPANIES are also beginning to see value in the conversations and images they host.  Shutterstock, the image hosting service, is partly trained on Reddit data. OpenAI to help create DALL-E, the A.I. program that creates vivid graphical imagery with only a text-based prompt required.

Some months ago, Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter, said he was cracking down the use of Twitter's A.P.I., which thousands of companies and independent developers use to track the millions of conversations across the network.

Though he did not cite L.L.M.s as a reason for the change, the new fees could go well into the tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

To keep improving their models, artificial intelligence makers need two significant things : an enormous amount of computing power and an enormous amount of data.

Some of the biggest A.I. developers have plenty of computing power but still look outside their own networks for the data needed to improve their algorithms.

That has included sources like Wikipedia, millions of digitized books, academic articles and Reddit.

But for the A.I. makers, it's time to pay up. ''Crawling Reddit, generating value and not returning any of that value to our users is something we have a problem with,'' Mr. Huffman said. ''It's good time for us to tighten things up.''
