The rise of AI could be a great British story. But let’s do it the right way
This investment in widening education and opportunity is just one of several steps in the 10-year AI national strategy, which aims to make Britain a world leader in AI. As we aim for the goal of becoming a world leader in AI, the United Kingdom must choose between putting ethics at the core of our...
A global law for artificial intelligence?
At the end of last year, the General Conference of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization adopted the Recommendation on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence as the first global standard-setting instrument responding to the ethical concerns related to artificial intelligence (AI).
What Humans Lose When We Let AI Decide
Why you should start worrying about artificial intelligence now. It’s been more than 50 years since HAL, the malevolent computer in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, first terrified audiences by turning against the astronauts he was supposed to protect. That cinematic moment captures what many of us still fear in AI: that it may gain superhuman powers and subjugate us.
Year-End Review & a glimpse into 2022 from Essentials
As the end of the year approaches, it's time to look back at the fast-changing evolution of AI in 2021. To help you navigate this ocean of information the Faveeo team has prepared a Year-End Review that will help you catch the information that matters the most.

MuZero’s first step from research into the real world
Collaborating with YouTube to optimise video compression in the open source VP9 codec. Decades of hand engineering have gone into optimising these codecs, which are responsible for many of the video experiences now possible on the internet, including video on demand, video calls, video games, and...
Aspinity unveils the first analog machine learning chip
Pittsburgh-based Aspinity has unveiled the first analog machine learning chip as part of its analogML family. The chip, the AML100, is the industry’s first analog tiny machine learning solution. The AML100 reduces always-on system power to under 100µA, and that unlocks the potential of thousands of...
Magnetic control of tokamak plasmas through deep reinforcement learning
Confining each configuration within the tokamak requires designing a feedback controller that can manipulate the magnetic field6 through precise control of several coils that are magnetically coupled to the plasma to achieve the desired plasma current, position and shape, a problem known as the...
The Quest for Ethical Artificial Intelligence: A Conversation with Timnit Gebru
Timnit Gebru will discuss why she founded the Distributed Artificial Intelligence Research Institute (DAIR) and what she hopes this interdisciplinary, community-based, global network of artificial intelligence (AI) researchers can accomplish. Speaker Timnit Gebru is the founder and executive...

Realising the potential of algorithmic accountability mechanisms
This is a delicate moment for the mainstreaming of AI accountability practices, as AI technologies continue to develop at pace. How will appropriate, robust and tested mechanisms emerge to meet the need for checks and balances?
Robots and romance: science fiction and science
Do want to sneak in a robot movie to watch on date night? Do you wonder about whether robots and love is possible? Here are five recommendations for sci-fi movies with a discussion of the related real-world robotics science. And remember to check out Learn AI and Human-Robot Interaction from Asimov’s I, Robot Stories– it’s a great primer on social interactions!
Shapeshifting Robots Adapt with Cleverly Designed Bodies, Grippers
The first paper, “Shape morphing mechanical metamaterials through reversible plasticity” from researchers at Virginia Tech and published in Science Robotics, demonstrates a composite material that’s able to transition from a flat sheet to a complex shape using a phase-change metal skeleton for...

Book review : Probabilistic Machine Learning by Kevin P.MUrphy
An Introduction A detailed and up-to-date introduction to machine learning, presented through the unifying lens of probabilistic modeling and Bayesian decision theory. “The deep learning revolution has transformed the field of machine learning over the last decade. It was inspired by attempts to...
Compute Trends Across Three Eras of Machine Learning
Compute, data, and algorithmic advances are the three fundamental factors that guide the progress of modern Machine Learning (ML). In this paper we study trends in the most readily quantified factor - compute. In late 2015, a new trend emerged as firms developed large-scale ML models with 10 to...
Locating and Editing Factual Knowledge in GPT
We use carefully-designed traces to identify a specific small set of MLP module computations that mediate knowledge retrieval. ROME, which edits the early causal site (a), achieves excellent efficacy (measured by performance on the counterfactual prompt itself), specificity (performance on...
