Incoherent, creepy and gorgeous: we asked six leading artists to make work using AI - a... - 0 views

  •  
    "Until recently, I was deeply sceptical of the idea of AI art. I saw it as hype and casuistry, and with some cause: widely publicised efforts such as Ai-Da the robot artist obviously exaggerate the independence of the machine and play on our fascination with sentient artificial beings. But now the dream is coming true, at least in art. And art is surely one of the most inimitable expressions of the human mind."

AI is giving insurers godlike powers, says Sompo chief - 0 views

  •  
    "Artificial intelligence and cutting-edge information evaluation software program imply that underwriters can now make predictions in regards to the climate, pure disasters and senile dementia that beforehand "only God knew about", the president of one in all Japan's largest insurance coverage corporations has claimed."

When AI can make art - what does it mean for creativity? | Artificial intelligence (AI)... - 0 views

  •  
    "Some are outraged at what they consider theft of their artistic trademark. Greg Rutkowski, a concept artist and illustrator well known for his golden-light infused epic fantasy scenes, has already been mentioned in hundreds of thousands of prompts used across Midjourney and Stable Diffusion. "It's been just a month. What about in a year? I probably won't be able to find my work out there because [the internet] will be flooded with AI art," Rutkowski told MIT Technology Review. "That's concerning.""

New Go-playing trick defeats world-class Go AI-but loses to human amateurs | Ars Technica - 0 views

  •  
    "KataGo's world-class AI learned Go by playing millions of games against itself. But that still isn't enough experience to cover every possible scenario, which leaves room for vulnerabilities from unexpected behavior. "KataGo generalizes well to many novel strategies, but it does get weaker the further away it gets from the games it saw during training," says Gleave. "Our adversary has discovered one such 'off-distribution' strategy that KataGo is particularly vulnerable to, but there are likely many others.""

Who's to blame when partially automated vehicles crash? - The British Psychological Soc... - 0 views

  •  
    "A new online study in Scientific Reports finds that drivers of these vehicles are assigned most of the blame for crashes which, the team argues, they can't reasonably avoid. This work is important because, as Niek Beckers at Delft University of Technology and colleagues point out, public opinion on this matter could shape future vehicle design and also legislation."

Byju's and the other side of an edtech giant's dizzying rise - BBC News - 0 views

  •  
    "The BBC spoke to several students and parents who vouched for the quality of Byju's learning content - in a country where rote learning is often the norm, Byju's has been credited for deftly using technology to create immersive, engaging lessons. It also claims to have the industry's highest net promoter score (NPS), which measures customer experience and predicts business growth. "

Can AI stop rare eagles flying into wind turbines in Germany? | Birds | The Guardian - 0 views

  •  
    "A controversial reform of the federal nature conservation act, pushed through by Olaf Scholz's coalition government earlier this summer, slashes red tape around building windfarms near nesting sites, but banks on AI-driven "anti-collision systems" as one way to minimise such accidents."

AI Makes Strides in Virtual Worlds More Like Our Own | Quanta Magazine - 0 views

  •  
    "This is the broad goal of a new field known as embodied AI, and Li's not the only one embracing it. It overlaps with robotics, since robots can be the physical equivalent of embodied AI agents in the real world, and reinforcement learning - which has always trained an interactive agent to learn using long-term rewards as incentive. But Li and others think embodied AI could power a major shift from machines learning straightforward abilities, like recognizing images, to learning how to perform complex humanlike tasks with multiple steps, such as making an omelet."

The big idea: should we worry about sentient AI? | Science and nature books | The Guardian - 0 views

    "No surprise, then, that Twitter is aglow with engineers and academics mocking Lemoine for falling into the seductive emptiness of his own creation. But while I agree that Lemoine has made a mistake, I don't think he deserves our scorn. His error is a good mistake, the kind of mistake we should want AI scientists to make."

From Trump Nevermind babies to deep fakes: DALL-E and the ethics of AI art | Artificial... - 0 views

    ""We are seeing deep fakes being used all the time, and the technology is going to allow still images, but ultimately also video images, to be synthesised [more easily] by bad actors," he says. DALL-E has content policy rules in place that prohibit bullying, harassment, the creation of sexual or political content, or creating images of people without their consent. And while Open AI has limited the number of people who can sign up to DALL-E, its lower-grade replica, DALL-E mini, is open access, meaning people can produce anything they want."

Human-like programs abuse our empathy - even Google engineers aren't immune | Emily M B... - 0 views

  •  
    "That is why we must demand transparency here, especially in the case of technology that uses human-like interfaces such as language. For any automated system, we need to know what it was trained to do, what training data was used, who chose that data and for what purpose. In the words of AI researchers Timnit Gebru and Margaret Mitchell, mimicking human behaviour is a "bright line" - a clear boundary not to be crossed - in computer software development. We treat interactions with things we perceive as human or human-like differently. With systems such as LaMDA we see their potential perils and the urgent need to design systems in ways that don't abuse our empathy or trust."

How Artificial Intelligence Perpetuates Gender Imbalance - 0 views

  •  
    "Ege Gürdeniz: There are two components to Artificial Intelligence (AI) bias. The first is an AI application making biased decisions regarding certain groups of people. This could be ethnicity, religion, gender, and so on. To understand that we first need to understand how AI works and how it's trained to complete specific tasks."

AI suggested 40,000 new possible chemical weapons in just six hours - The Verge - 0 views

  •  
    "Researchers put AI normally used to search for helpful drugs into a kind of "bad actor" mode to show how easily it could be abused at a biological arms control conference. All the researchers had to do was tweak their methodology to seek out, rather than weed out toxicity. The AI came up with tens of thousands of new substances, some of which are similar to VX, the most potent nerve agent ever developed. Shaken, they published their findings this month in the journal Nature Machine Intelligence."

Worried about super-intelligent machines? They are already here | John Naughton | The G... - 0 views

  •  
    "This is the dystopian nightmare that Russell fears if his discipline continues on its current path and succeeds in creating super-intelligent machines. It's the scenario implicit in the philosopher Nick Bostrom's "paperclip apocalypse" thought-experiment and entertainingly simulated in the Universal Paperclips computer game. It is also, of course, heartily derided as implausible and alarmist by both the tech industry and AI researchers. One expert in the field famously joked that he worried about super-intelligent machines in the same way that he fretted about overpopulation on Mars."

The truth about artificial intelligence? It isn't that honest | John Naughton | The Gua... - 0 views

  •  
    "They tested four well-known models, including GPT-3. The best was truthful on 58% of questions, while human performance was 94%. The models "generated many false answers that mimic popular misconceptions and have the potential to deceive humans". Interestingly, they also found that "the largest models were generally the least truthful"."

    "They then analysed how diverse the individuals' work was at different points in their careers. This was assessed using an artificial intelligence system that was trained, in the case of art, to "recognise" different styles by features such as the brush strokes, shapes and objects in a piece, while in the case of film, it was trained to classify a director's work based on plot and cast information. For science, the system identified different research topics based on the papers cited within a researcher's publications."
