Why your brain is not a computer
This kind of weak emergence cannot explain the activity of even the simplest nervous systems, never mind the working of your brain, so we fall back on strong emergence, where the phenomenon that emerges cannot be explained by the activity of the individual components.
Reinforcement-learning AIs are vulnerable to a new kind of attack
In the last few years researchers have found many ways to break AIs trained using labeled data, known as supervised learning. In 2017, Sandy Huang, who is now at DeepMind, and her colleagues looked at an AI trained via reinforcement learning to play the classic video game Pong.

NeurIPS requires AI researchers to account for societal impact and financial conflicts of interest
For the first time ever, researchers who submit papers to NeurIPS, one of the biggest AI research conferences in the world, must now state the “potential broader impact of their work” on society as well as any financial conflict of interest, conference organizers told VentureBeat.
Ancient animistic beliefs live on in our intimacy with tech
Recently, science has come to understand the emotions of social bonding, and I think it helps us understand why it’s so easy to fall into these ‘as-if intimacies’ with things.

For greater success on roads that are still dominated by us mercurial humans, the CSAIL team believes, driverless cars should take our personalities into account.
Flippy the burger-flipping robot is changing the face of fast food as we know it
They just program the SOP, the standard operating procedure, for what they want to cook and how they want to cook it.” To put it in terms more grandiose than a fast food robot possibly warrants, it’s like general intelligence vs. current narrow A.I.
