The coded gaze: biased and understudied facial recognition technology / Boing Boing - 0 views

  •  
    " "Why isn't my face being detected? We have to look at how we give machines sight," she said in a TED Talk late last year. "Computer vision uses machine-learning techniques to do facial recognition. You create a training set with examples of faces. However, if the training sets aren't really that diverse, any face that deviates too much from the established norm will be harder to detect.""

Google's AI Chief On Teaching Computers To Learn-And The Challenges Ahead - 0 views

  •  
    ""We'd have to show them 100,000 penny-farthings and tell them it's a bike," Giannandrea says. Then-looking on the bright side-he adds that "once they'd seen 100,000, they'd probably be better at identifying them than humans are.""

Human-robot interactions take step forward with 'emotional' chatbot | Technology | The ... - 1 views

    "In the future, the team predict the software could also learn the appropriate emotion to express at a given time. "It could be mostly empathic," said Huang, adding that a challenge would be to avoid the chatbot reinforcing negative feelings such as rage."

What if we're living in a computer simulation? | Technology | The Guardian - 0 views

  •  
    "If we assume that these developments continue, and with them our interest in creating simulations of the world, then at some point in the future - 1,000 years, 100,000 years - it's reasonable to assume that the difference between reality and simulation will become indistinguishable. At which point it will mean we will have created simulated beings with their own consciousness.

    But if that is the inevitable outcome of continued technological advancement, unless nuclear war or some other catastrophe intervenes, then it's quite possible - some would say an overwhelming certainty - that it's already happened, and we are the ancestor simulations created by an advanced post-human civilisation."

    "Chinese delivery firm is moving to embrace automation.Chinese delivery firm is moving to embrace automation.

    Orange robots at the company's sorting stations are able to identify the destination of a package through a code-scan, virtually eliminating sorting mistakes.

    Shentong's army of robots can sort up to 200,000 packages a day, and are self-charging, meaning they are operational 24/7."

How the internet found a better way than illegible squiggles to prove you're not a robo... - 0 views

  •  
    "The company has revealed the latest evolution of the Captcha (short, sort of, for Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart), which aims to do away with any interruption at all: the new, "invisible reCaptcha" aims to tell whether a given visitor is a robot or not purely by analysing their browsing behaviour. Barring a short wait while the system does its job, a typical human visitor shouldn't have to do anything else to prove they're not a robot."

    ""The fights between bots can be far more persistent than the ones we see between people," said Taha Yasseri, who worked on the study at the Oxford Internet Institute. "Humans usually cool down after a few days, but the bots might continue for years.""

Driverless trucks: economic tsunami may swallow one of most common US jobs | Technology... - 0 views

  •  
    "It seems highly likely that competition between the various companies developing these technologies will produce practical, self-driving trucks within the next five to 10 years. And once the technology is proven, the incentive to adopt it will be powerful: in the US alone, large trucks are involved in about 350,000 crashes a year, resulting in nearly 4,000 fatalities. Virtually all of these incidents can be traced to human error. The potential savings in lives, property damage and exposure to liability will eventually become irresistible.

    There's only one problem: truck driving is one of the most common occupations in the US. "

  •  
    "If humans want to continue to add value to the economy, they must augment their capabilities through a "merger of biological intelligence and machine intelligence". If we fail to do this, we'll risk becoming "house cats" to artificial intelligence."

Talking to a Computer May Soon Be Enough to Diagnose Illness - 0 views

  •  
    "Participants used an app on their phones to record 30-second intervals of themselves reading a piece of text, describing a positive experience, then describing a negative experience. Doctors also took recordings from a control group of 25 patients who were either healthy or getting non-heart-related tests.

    The doctors found 13 different voice characteristics associated with coronary artery disease. Most notably, the biggest differences between heart patients and non-heart patients' voices occurred when they talked about a negative experience."

Real life CSI: Google's new AI system unscrambles pixelated faces | Technology | The Gu... - 0 views

  •  
    "Google's neural networks have achieved the dream of CSI viewers everywhere: the company has revealed a new AI system capable of "enhancing" an eight-pixel square image, increasing the resolution 16-fold and effectively restoring lost data.

    The neural network could be used to increase the resolution of blurred or pixelated faces, in a way previously thought impossible; a similar system was demonstrated for enhancing images of bedrooms, again creating a 32x32 pixel image from an 8x8 one."

AI can win at poker: but as computers get smarter, who keeps tabs on their ethics? | Te... - 0 views

  •  
    ""No-limit Texas Hold'em is a game of incomplete information where the AI must infer a human player's intentions and then act in ways that incorporate both the direct odds of winning and bluffing behaviour to try to fool the other player." The designers said their computer didn't "bluff" the human players. But by learning from its mistakes and practising its moves at night between games, the AI was working out how to defeat its human opponents."

When Intelligent Machines Cause Accidents, Who Is Legally Responsible? - 0 views

  •  
    "Currently, the law treats machines as if they were all created equal, as simple consumer products. In most cases, when an accident occurs, standards of strict product liability law apply. In other words, unless a consumer uses a product in an outrageous way or grossly ignores safety warnings, the manufacturer is automatically considered at fault."

    "Automated decision-making is appealing to businesses as it can save time and eliminate human emotional volatility.

    "People have a bad day and it then colors their perception of the world and they make different decisions. In a hedge fund that's a big deal," he added."
