    "In 2019, Genevieve (co-author of this article) and her husband applied for the same credit card. Despite having a slightly better credit score and the same income, expenses, and debt as her husband, the credit card company set her credit limit at almost half the amount. "

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."

Scared about the threat of AI? It's the big tech giants that need reining in | Devdatt ... - 0 views

    "But by far the most immediate danger is the role that AI data analysis and generation plays in spreading disinformation and extremism on social media. This technology powers bots and amplification algorithms. These have played a direct role in fomenting conflict in many countries. They are helping to intensify racism, conspiracy theories, political extremism and a plethora of violent, irrationalist movements."

We invited an AI to debate its own ethics in the Oxford Union - what it said ... - 0 views

  •  
    "The data wars to come? Worryingly, there was one question where the AI simply couldn't come up with a counter argument. When arguing for the motion that "Data will become the most fought-over resource of the 21st century", the Megatron said: The ability to provide information, rather than the ability to provide goods and services, will be the defining feature of the economy of the 21st century. But when we asked it to oppose the motion - in other words, to argue that data wasn't going to be the most vital of resources, worth fighting a war over - it simply couldn't, or wouldn't, make the case. In fact, it undermined its own position: We will able to see everything about a person, everywhere they go, and it will be stored and used in ways that we cannot even imagine."

The Top 4 Ethical Dilemmas in Artificial Intelligence - 0 views

    "In many ways, we've barely even scratched the surface of AI and what it can do. In recent times, we have seen both positive and negative implications. However, like many great innovations, it's important to remember that just because we can, doesn't mean that we ought to do it. Here are some examples of how AI can bring out ethical dilemmas."

    "The use of AI in military applications - such as small anti-personnel weapons - is of particular concern, he said. "Those are the ones that are very easily scalable, meaning you could put a million of them in a single truck and you could open the back and off they go and wipe out a whole city," said Russell."

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."
