These creepy fake humans herald a new age in AI
These humans are not gaming avatars or animated characters for movies. They are synthetic data designed to feed the growing appetite of deep-learning algorithms. Firms like Datagen offer a compelling alternative to the expensive and time-consuming process of gathering real-world data.
Make your own AI models, no code required.
It’s now easier than ever to bring machine learning into your business. With Primer Automate, you can train NLP models to execute your organization’s repetitive text-based tasks, such as classifying, identifying, or summarizing, with human-level precision. Use Automate to scale up your information processing capacity, so you can focus on higher-level tasks.

Inside the fight to reclaim AI from Big Tech’s control
And recommendation algorithms have exacerbated political polarization, while large language models have failed to clean up misinformation. “As a young PhD student who wants to get a job at a tech company, you realize that tech companies are all about deep learning,” says Suresh Venkatasubramanian, a...
U.S. Launches Task Force to Open Government Data for AI Research
“This is a moment that is calling us to be strengthening our speed and scale” when it comes to advances in AI technology, said National Science Foundation Director Sethuraman Panchanathan in an interview. “It is also calling us to make sure that innovation is everywhere.”
Facebook scientists say they can now tell where deepfakes have come from
They’ve become increasingly realistic in recent years, making it harder for humans to determine what’s real on the internet, and indeed Facebook, and what’s not. Tal Hassner, an applied research lead at Facebook, told CNBC that it’s possible to train AI software “to look at the photo and tell you...
Andrew Ng Kickstarts Next-Generation AI
A new approach to building AI would unlock multimillion-dollar applications from automated factories to robot farms. Rather than focusing on the way AI processes data, Ng says, we need to focus on the data itself.
He’ll start pushing the community of AI engineers in that direction on June 17, 2021, when he launches a contest to improve an AI system only by refining the data it depends on. This will be his first move in a campaign to supercharge the way AI is built and what it can do.
Experts Doubt Ethical AI Design Will Be Broadly Adopted as the Norm Within the Next Decade
“The principal use of AI is likely to be finding ever more sophisticated ways to convince people to buy things that they don’t really need, leaving us deeper in debt with no money to contribute to efforts to combat climate change, environmental catastrophe, social injustice and inequality and so...
The AI Ethics Initiative
We are introducing the AI Ethics Initiative to ensure that AI products used in the NHS and care settings will not exacerbate health inequalities. We will collaborate with academia, the third sector, and other public bodies, involving and encouraging them to help us shape our key programmes,...
Be Skeptical of Thought Leaders
On one page, Liautaud admits tackling pressing ethical problems requires collective action. And it proceeds by raising, and sometimes answering, provocative questions about how society can be better prepared to deal with complex challenges involving technology.
Amazon hopes more robots will improve worker safety
Amazon is once again betting that robots will improve safety at its warehouses. The company is testing a trio of autonomous robots to carry items with little intervention. "Bert" can freely move around a warehouse carrying carts and goods.
Educational Robotics and Robot Creativity: An Interdisciplinary Dialogue
Sullivan (2011) described the process of constructing a robotic model in terms of troubleshooting cycles and rapid prototyping rounds, in which students fluently move between 1) writing code, 2) testing the robot, 3) analyzing problems, 4) proposing changes to the model, and 5) testing the device...
What's New in Robotics? 11.06.2021
News briefs for the week take a look at differing tech for keeping robots/cobots safe around people, collaborating tech for farm and field, China’s skyrocketing demand for robots, plankton-hunting “smart” maritime robots, Argonaut’s new home in liquid argon, and the emerging collision of robots,...
Teach Don’t Document
Back in undergrad, when I was into systems programming, I would pour hours reading UNIX man pages, like this one: It was esoteric and required a certain trained eye to find the right man page, make sense of it, and skim over parts that didn’t matter.
Welcome to the 🤗 Course!
This course will teach you about natural language processing (NLP) using libraries from the Hugging Face ecosystem — 🤗 Transformers, 🤗 Datasets, 🤗 Tokenizers, and 🤗 Accelerate — as well as the Hugging Face Hub.
