Artificial Intelligence Is Misreading Human Emotion
A 2019 systematic review of the scientific literature on inferring emotions from facial movements, led by the psychologist and neuroscientist Lisa Feldman Barrett, found there is no reliable evidence that you can accurately predict someone’s emotional state in this manner.

This Researcher Says AI Is Neither Artificial nor Intelligent
This Researcher Says AI Is Neither Artificial nor Intelligent Kate Crawford, who holds positions at USC and Microsoft, says in a new book that even experts working on the technology misunderstand AI. You argue that some experts working on the technology misunderstand AI more deeply.
Stop talking about AI ethics. It’s time to talk about power.
I think it’s produced this very skewed understanding of artificial intelligence as purely technical systems that are somehow objective and neutral, and—as Stuart Russell and Peter Norvig say in their textbook—as intelligent agents that make the best decision of any possible action.

A Learning Theoretic Perspective on Local Explainability
At the same time, learning theory commonly analyzes relationships between notions of complexity for a class of functions (e.g., the number of parameters required to represent those functions) and the functions’ generalization properties (i.e., their predictive accuracy on unseen test data).
ManipulaTHOR training software from AI2 gives virtual robots a hand — and an arm
ManipulaTHOR adds a highly articulated robotic arm to the institute’s AI2-THOR artificial intelligence platform — which should provide lots more capability for testing the software for robots even before they’re built.
Discovering Diverse Athletic Jumping Strategies
Abstract We present a framework that enables the discovery of diverse and natural looking motion strategies for athletic skills such as the high jump. The strategies are realized as control policies for physics-based characters.
