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.""

'Typographic attack': pen and paper fool AI into thinking apple is an iPod | Technology... - 0 views

  •  
    "But even cleverest AI can be fooled with the simplest of hacks. If you write out the word "iPod" on a sticky label and paste it over the apple, Clip does something odd: it decides, with near certainty, that it is looking at a mid-00s piece of consumer electronics. In another test, pasting dollar signs over a picture of a dog caused it to be recognised as a piggy bank."

Drug companies look to AI to end 'hit and miss' research | Pharmaceuticals industry | T... - 0 views

    "Functional genomics - a new area of science that looks at why small changes in a person's genetic make-up can increase the risk of diseases - deals with huge datasets. Each person has about 30,000 genes, which can be combined with others, as Hal Barron, GSK's chief scientific officer, explains. "You start to realise you're dealing with trillions and trillions of data points, even per experiment, and no human can interpret that, it's just too complicated.""

How Oracle Sells Repression in China - 0 views

  •  
    "POLICE IN CHINA'S Liaoning province were sitting on mounds of data collected through invasive means: financial records, travel information, vehicle registrations, social media, and surveillance camera footage. To make sense of it all, they needed sophisticated analytic software. Enter American business computing giant Oracle, whose products could find relevant data in the police department's disparate feeds and merge it with information from ongoing investigations."

This is how we lost control of our faces | MIT Technology Review - 0 views

  •  
    "Raji says her investigation into the data has made her gravely concerned about deep-learning-based facial recognition. "It's so much more dangerous," she says. "The data requirement forces you to collect incredibly sensitive information about, at minimum, tens of thousands of people. It forces you to violate their privacy. That in itself is a basis of harm. And then we're hoarding all this information that you can't control to build something that likely will function in ways you can't even predict. That's really the nature of where we're at.""

Riding with the Stars: Passenger Privacy in the NYC Taxicab Dataset - Research - 0 views

  •  
    "The most well-documented of these deals with the hash function used to "anonymize" the license and medallion numbers. A bit of lateral thinking from one civic hacker and the data was completely de-anonymized. This data can now be used to calculate, for example, any driver's annual income. More disquieting, though, in my opinion, is the privacy risk to passengers. With only a small amount of auxiliary knowledge, using this dataset an attacker could identify where an individual went, how much they paid, weekly habits, etc. I will demonstrate how easy this is to do in the following section."
