Artificial intelligence reinforces power and privilege
Advanced nations and the world's biggest companies have thrown billions of dollars behind AI - a set of computing practices, including machine learning that collate masses of our data, analyse it, and use it to predict what we would do. An inventor of virtual reality, Lanier worked with AI pioneer...
Open-sourcing AI Habitat, an advanced simulation platform for embodied AI research
To accelerate progress in this space, we’re sharing AI Habitat, a new simulation platform created by Facebook AI that’s designed to train embodied agents (such as virtual robots) in photo-realistic 3D environments.
Video Friday: Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Tries Dexterous Robot Hands
Last week at the re:MARS conference, Amazon CEO and aspiring supervillain Jeff Bezos tried out this pair of dexterous robotic hands, which he described as “weirdly natural” to operate.
Cognitions of a Cybercriminal: Get Visibility into Adversary Behavior
With the rising volume of sophisticated cyberattacks, and the increase in non-malware techniques, it is imperative to obtaining better visibility into your environments as well as into cybercriminal behaviors. Join our upcoming webinar as we discuss the cognitions of a cybercriminal presented in 3 clear phases, as well as incident response best practices and specific actions to strengthen your security posture.
