Police built an AI to predict violent crime. It was seriously flawed | WIRED UK - 0 views

  •  
    "A flagship artificial intelligence system designed to predict gun and knife violence before it happens had serious flaws that made it unusable, police have admitted. The error led to large drops in accuracy and the system was ultimately rejected by all of the experts reviewing it for ethical problems."

Mathematicians Boycott Police Work - 0 views

  •  
    "That can include statistical or machine learning algorithms that rely on police records detailing the time, location, and nature of past crimes in a bid to predict if, when, where, and who may commit future infractions. In theory, this should help authorities use resources more wisely and spend more time policing certain neighborhoods that they think will yield higher crime rates."

Microsoft's robot editor confuses mixed-race Little Mix singers | Technology | The Guar... - 0 views

  •  
    "Microsoft's decision to replace human journalists with robots has backfired, after the tech company's artificial intelligence software illustrated a news story about racism with a photo of the wrong mixed-race member of the band Little Mix."

Singapore deploys Spot robot to patrol parks and remind people to socially distance - T... - 0 views

  •  
    "Using the robot will reduce the need for staff to patrol the grounds, says NParks, and it "lowers the risk of exposure to the virus." According to local newspaper The Straits Times, the board is also considering deploying the robot elsewhere in the city. Signs posted in the park ask visitors not to "disrupt" the robot on its patrols."

Yann LeCun and Yoshua Bengio: Self-supervised learning is the key to human-level intell... - 0 views

  •  
    "LeCun argues that even self-supervised learning and learnings from neurobiology won't be enough to achieve artificial general intelligence (AGI), or the hypothetical intelligence of a machine with the capacity to understand or learn from any task. That's because intelligence - even human intelligence - is very specialized, he says. "AGI does not exist - there is no such thing as general intelligence," said LeCun. "We can talk about rat-level intelligence, cat-level intelligence, dog-level intelligence, or human-level intelligence, but not artificial general intelligence.""

Don't Fear the Robot - Issue 84: Outbreak - Nautilus - 0 views

  •  
    "Robots have been slow to appear because each one requires a rare confluence of market, task, technology, and innovation. (And luck. I only described some of the things that nearly killed Roomba.) But as technology advances and costs decline, the toolbox for robot designers constantly expands. Thus, more types of robots will cross the threshold of economic viability. Still, we can expect one constant. Each new, successful robot will represent a minimum-the simplest, lowest-cost solution to a problem people want solved. The growing set of tools that let us attack ever more interesting problems make this an exciting time to practice robotics."

Common Sense Comes to Computers | Quanta Magazine - 0 views

  •  
    "Common-sense reasoning - the ability to make mundane inferences using basic knowledge about the world, like the fact that "matches" plus "logs" usually equals "fire" - has resisted AI researchers' efforts for decades."

    "According to Folding@Home, the organisation that runs the distributed computing effort, the combined power of the network broke 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 operations per second - or one "exaflop" - on 25 March."

A debate between AI experts shows a battle over the technology's future - MIT Technolog... - 0 views

  •  
    "The reason to look at humans is because there are certain things that humans do much better than deep-learning systems. That doesn't mean humans will ultimately be the right model. We want systems that have some properties of computers and some properties that have been borrowed from people. We don't want our AI systems to have bad memory just because people do. But since people are the only model of a system that can develop a deep understanding of something-literally the only model we've got-we need to take that model seriously."

Folding@home diverts users' computer power to finding coronavirus cure - 0 views

    "The computers are connected into a kind of hive mind via a downloadable software, allowing the system to run calculations with greater speed and efficiency than any individual device. This is necessary to do the complex work of simulating how the proteins that make up the novel coronavirus behave and where there could be potential binding sites for drugs to latch on to."
