Are We Living in a Computer Simulation? That's a Heated Debate - 0 views

  •  
    "Proponents say that it's more than just a matter of probability. The laws of physics don't seem that different from code in a program, according to some, and it's likely that with enough time, a sufficiently advanced civilization could crunch the numbers and produce a simulation that mimics the existence and behavior of every particle in our universe."

Harvard Study Proves Apple Slows Down old iPhones to Sell Millions of New Models - Anonymous - 0 views

  •  
    "People have made the anecdotal observation that their Apple products become much slower right before the release of a new model. Now, a Harvard University study has done what any person with Google Trends could do, and pointed out that Google searches for "iPhone slow" spiked multiple times, just before the release of a new iPhone each time."

Why Education Is the Hardest Sector of the Economy to Automate - 0 views

  •  
    "Automating teaching is an example of a task that would require artificial general intelligence (as opposed to narrow or specific intelligence). In other words, this is the kind of task that would require an AI that understands natural human language, can be empathetic towards emotions, plan, strategize and make impactful decisions under unpredictable circumstances."

End of the road: will automation put an end to the American trucker? | Technology | The Guardian - 0 views

  •  
    "Google, Uber, Tesla and the major truck manufacturers are looking to a future in which people like Baxter will be replaced - or at the very least downgraded to co-pilots - by automated vehicles that will save billions but will cost millions of jobs. It will be one of the biggest changes to the jobs market since the invention of the automated loom - challenging the livelihoods of millions across the world."

Algorithms Identify People with Suicidal Thoughts - IEEE Spectrum - 0 views

  •  
    "Brain scans, however, are quite telling, especially when analyzed with an algorithm, Brent and his colleagues discovered. "We're trying to figure out what's going on in somebody's brain when they're thinking about suicide," says Brent.  These scans, taken using fMRI, or functional magnetic resonance imaging, show that strong words such as 'death,' 'trouble,' 'carefree,' and 'praise,' trigger different patterns of brain activity in people who are suicidal, compared with people who are not. That means that people at risk of suicide think about those concepts differently than everyone else-evidenced by the levels and patterns of brain activity, or neural signatures."

Some scientists fear superintelligent machines could pose a threat to humanity | The Washington Post - 0 views

  •  
    "The world's spookiest philosopher is Nick Bostrom, a thin, soft-spoken Swede. Of all the people worried about runaway artificial intelligence, and Killer Robots, and the possibility of a technological doomsday, Bostrom conjures the most extreme scenarios. In his mind, human extinction could be just the beginning."

Teachers have 10 years before robots take over: university vice-chancellor - 0 views

  •  
    "Robots will begin replacing teachers in the classroom within the next 10 years as part of a revolution in one-to-one learning, a leading educationist has predicted. Sir Anthony Seldon, vice-chancellor of the University of Buckingham, said intelligent machines that adapt to suit the learning styles of individual children would soon render traditional academic teaching all but redundant."

The Age of the Algorithm - 99% Invisible - 0 views

  •  
    "But the answer to how he was chosen is actually an algorithm, a computer program that crunched through reams of data, looking at how much each passenger had paid for their ticket, what time they checked in, how often they flew on United, and whether they were part of a rewards program. The algorithm likely determined that Dr. Dao was one of the least valuable customers on the flight at the time."

Mind Control Isn't Sci-Fi Anymore | WIRED - 0 views

  •  
    "He sits down at a computer keyboard, fires up his monitor, and begins typing. After a few lines of text, he pushes the keyboard away, exposing the white surface of a conference table in the midtown Manhattan headquarters of his startup. He resumes typing. Only this time he is typing on…nothing. Just the flat tabletop. Yet the result is the same: The words he taps out appear on the monitor."

To fix the problem of deepfakes we must treat the cause, not the symptoms | Matt Beard | Opinion | The Guardian - 0 views

  •  
    "However, once technology is released it's like herding cats. Deepfakes are a moving feast and as soon as moderators find a way of detecting them, people will find a workaround."
