The co-founder of OpenAI, the company behind AI chatbot ChatGPT, recently admitted that the firm “made a mistake” by going woke and that the chatbot’s system “did not reflect the values we intended to be in there,” following accusations of political bias.
Scientists at John Hopkins University are working on research to enable AI to be constructed using human brain cells, arguing that the use of organic materials is more efficient than traditional computing systems.
Critics have claimed that the new executive order signed by President Joe Biden will lead to the further creation of woke AI that will promote “racial division and discrimination” in the name of an “equity action plan.”
World Economic Forum Chairman Klaus Schwab said that those who control emerging “Fourth Industrial Revolution” technologies such as Artificial Intelligence will become “masters of the world” while speaking at the World Government Summit.
Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt compared AI to nuclear weapons and called for a deterrence regime similar to the mutually-assured destruction that keeps the world’s most powerful countries from destroying each other.
The company is utilizing emerging technology that uses artificial intelligence software for surveillance cameras to detect potential problems. Actuate doesn’t actually install any new devices, instead, the company connects cameras online in an encrypted way and then runs its algorithms that are programmed to search for problems.
The following video illustrates how good deep fakes are becoming. If you didn’t know this was fake, a casual viewer could be forgiven for believing this real footage. And in a short time this will be regarded crude.
A new AI technology known as “GPT-2” has been released. The technology is able to be fed a piece of text and accurately predict what would come next. The text would be indistinguishable from human text.
The technology is so powerful, its creators have only released a limited version to researchers. In the wrong hands the technology could be used for malicious purposes by scammers; and political and terror organisations to generate propaganda.
GPT-2 could become the text equivalent of “deep fakes” in the image field. The consequences for internet users would be individuals would not know if content were genuine or not. Requiring the public to be more skeptical of online content as well as better educated.
Elon Musk’s start up Neuralink has been working on a “brain-machine interface” . This week the secretive start-up revealed it has been testing brain implants on animals, and that it has successfully placed an implant in a monkey brain allowing it to control a computer.
Musk hopes that the implant will be used initially on patients with serious brain injuries of diseases allowing them to communicate their thoughts. He plans to seek FDA approval to begin clinical trials as early as 2020.
Neuralink works by inserting thin strands into the brain, via a tiny robot controlled by a neurosurgeon. The stands then interface with the electrical activity of the brain.
Musk’s worry about the current threat AI poses to humanity is well know. And he hopes his new technology will allow humans and machines to work together in “symbiosis”, so humans will not be left behind in the AI revolution.
