Scientists identify key conditions to set up a creative 'hot streak' | Artificial intel... - 0 views

  •  
    "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."

This AI project distills research papers into a single sentence | Boing Boing - 0 views

  •  
    "Drowning in literature? Scientists often must manage research, teaching, and acquiring funding, and more. It can be hard to find time to read new papers in the field. It can also help non-specialists who are reading complicated papers and struggling to find the gist. Using this tool, you can enter a paper's abstract. The site will then generate a short summary. "The free tool, which creates what the team calls TLDRs (the common Internet acronym for 'Too long, didn't read'), was activated this week for search results at Semantic Scholar, a search engine created by the non-profit Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2) in Seattle, Washington."

Anthony Bourdain documentary sparks backlash for using AI to fake voice | Anthony Bourd... - 0 views

  •  
    "Despite Neville describing his use of AI technology as a "modern storytelling technique", critics voiced concerns on social media over the unannounced use of a "deepfake" voice to say sentences that Bourdain never spoke. Among those upset with the use of AI was Bourdain's ex-wife Ottavia Bourdain. She disputed Neville's claims that he had received her blessing to use the artificial technology, tweeting: "I certainly was NOT the one who said Tony would have been cool with that.""

What's artificial intelligence best at? Stealing human ideas | Technology | The Guardian - 0 views

  •  
    " A new AI pair programmer that helps you write better code. It helps you quickly discover alternative ways to solve problems, write tests, and explore new APIs without having to tediously tailor a search for answers on the internet. As you type, it adapts to the way you write code - to help you complete your work faster. In other words, Copilot will sit on your computer and do a chunk of your coding work for you. There's a long-running joke in the coding community that a substantial portion of the actual work of programming is searching online for people who've solved the same problems as you, and copying their code into your program. Well, now there's an AI that will do that part for you."

Welcome to dystopia: getting fired from your job as an Amazon worker by an app | Jessa ... - 0 views

  •  
    "Instead, the robots are here not to replace this lower tier of underpaid and undervalued work. They are here to smugly sit in the middle, monitoring and surveilling us, hiring and firing us. Amazon has recently replaced its middle management and human resources workers with artificial intelligence to determine when a worker has outlived their usefulness and needs to be let go. There is no human to appeal to, no negotiating with a bot. "

Robots may soon be able to reproduce - will this change how we think about evolution? |... - 0 views

  •  
    "But could robots ever reproduce? This, undoubtedly, forms a pillar of "life" as shared by all natural organisms. A team of researchers from the UK and the Netherlands have recently demonstrated a fully automated technology to allow physical robots to repeatedly breed, evolving their artificial genetic code over time to better adapt to their environment. Arguably, this amounts to artificial evolution. Child robots are created by mixing the digital "DNA" from two parent robots on a computer."

Ban Eproctoring - 0 views

    "This is an abuse of the concept of consent and risks desensitizing people to surveillance. Eproctoring also treats students as if they are guilty until proven innocent, which is a concerning and disrespectful stance for any academic institution to take." What do you think?

Microsoft's Kate Crawford: 'AI is neither artificial nor intelligent' | Artificial inte... - 0 views

  •  
    "Beginning in 2017, I did a project with artist Trevor Paglen to look at how people were being labelled. We found horrifying classificatory terms that were misogynist, racist, ableist, and judgmental in the extreme. Pictures of people were being matched to words like kleptomaniac, alcoholic, bad person, closet queen, call girl, slut, drug addict and far more I cannot say here. ImageNet has now removed many of the obviously problematic people categories - certainly an improvement - however, the problem persists because these training sets still circulate on torrent sites [where files are shared between peers]."

How to Solve Captchas-and Why They've Gotten So Hard | WIRED - 0 views

  •  
    "It can be a tricky balance, especially as machines become more sophisticated. "Usually artificial intelligence systems are capable of coping better than humans because, as an example, they don't suffer from annoyance. They are infinitely patient, they don't care about wasting time," says Mauro Migliardi, associate professor at the University of Padua in Italy. He recently coauthored a paper summarizing 20 years of captcha versions and their effectiveness."

  •  
    "So when I discovered the pocket of Instagram where you can find out what it thinks you're interested in (on the app, you'll find it under Settings> Security> Access data > Ads), I obviously felt it my duty as a netizen to see what dark insights it had into my private soul. Here goes: jewellery; luxury goods; electronic music; love; emotions; fashion design; crafts. I mean: no offence, Kraftwerk (and loved ones) but I could not name eight things I am less interested in. Maybe oxbow lakes."

'Missing from desk': AI webcam raises remote surveillance concerns | Working from home ... - 0 views

  •  
    "Explained by "Anna", a desk-sitting avatar complete with an artificial voice, the video introduces TP Observer as "a risk-mitigation tool that monitors and tracks real time employee behaviour, and detects any violations to pre-set business rules". Anna explains that this means home workers will have an AI-enabled webcam added to their computers that recognises their face, tags their location and scans for "breaches" of rules at random points during a shift."

This Researcher Says AI Is Neither Artificial nor Intelligent | WIRED - 0 views

  •  
    "We need to look at the nose to tail production of artificial intelligence. The seeds of the data problem were planted in the 1980s, when it became common to use data sets without close knowledge of what was inside, or concern for privacy. It was just "raw" material, reused across thousands of projects."

    "The researchers programmed a robot called Pepper, made by SoftBank Robotics, with the ability to vocalise its thought processes. This means the robot is no longer a "black box" and its underlying decision-making is more transparent to the user."

Hackers Used to Be Humans. Soon, AIs Will Hack Humanity | WIRED - 0 views

  •  
    "In 2015, a research group fed an AI system called Deep Patient health and medical data from some 700,000 people, and tested whether it could predict diseases. It could, but Deep Patient provides no explanation for the basis of a diagnosis, and the researchers have no idea how it comes to its conclusions. A doctor either can either trust or ignore the computer, but that trust will remain blind."

AI Software Creates "New" Nirvana Song "Drowned in the Sun" | Consequence of Sound - 0 views

    "Over the Bridge hopes the project emphasizes exactly how much work goes into creating AI music. "There's an inordinate amount of human hands at the beginning, middle and end to create something like this," explained Michael Scriven, a rep for Lemmon Entertainment whose CEO is on Over the Bridge's board of directors. Scriven added, "A lot of people may think [AI] is going to replace musicians at some point, but at this point, the number of humans that are required just to get to a point where a song is listenable is actually quite significant.""

    "Today we fear a different technological threat, one that centers not on machines but other humans. We see ourselves as imperiled by the terrifying social influence unleashed by the Internet in general and social media in particular. We hear warnings that nothing less than our collective ability to perceive reality is at stake, and that if we do not take corrective action we will lose our freedoms and way of life."

An A.I. Training Tool Has Been Passing Its Bias to Algorithms for Almost Two Decades | ... - 0 views

  •  
    ""I consider 'bias' a euphemism," says Brandeis Marshall, PhD, data scientist and CEO of DataedX, an edtech and data science firm. "The words that are used are varied: There's fairness, there's responsibility, there's algorithmic bias, there's a number of terms… but really, it's dancing around the real topic… A dataset is inherently entrenched in systemic racism and sexism.""

Why machine learning struggles with causality | VentureBeat - 0 views

  •  
    "In a paper titled "Towards Causal Representation Learning," researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, the Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms (Mila), and Google Research discuss the challenges arising from the lack of causal representations in machine learning models and provide directions for creating artificial intelligence systems that can learn causal representations."
