At AI’s Heart Lies A Dark Secret That Everyone Needs to Know About

ai_secrets

Machine learning technologies are great. They are great for researchers, for doctors, and for businessmen. However, inherently, the actual workings of any given machine-learning technology are more or less opaque when compared to a system that is hand-coded. And they aren’t opaque just to normal readers on the internet. Even computer scientists who work in …

Does China Believe in Data Rather Than Democracy?

China_democracy

Word is out. China rules its people by utilizing artificial intelligence, data and internet surveillance. There is no room for democracy there. Back in the year 1955, Isaac Asimov (a very famous science fiction author) published a story (short one). The short story talked about a very specific kind of experiment which made use of, …

Weaponized AI: How Artificial Intelligence Researchers Should Act

There is a general consensus among the security community that artificial intelligence researchers should not just walk away from military projects. Instead, they need to make sure that no one exploits it for their nefarious means. Now, the author of an upcoming new book which discusses autonomous weapons mentions that the scientific community working on …
