Goldman Sachs Predicts 300 Million Jobs Will Be Lost Or Degraded By Artificial Intelligence
If generative AI lives up to its hype, the workforce in the United States and Europe will be upended, Goldman Sachs reported this week in a sobering and alarming report about AI's ascendance.
What We Still Don’t Know About How A.I. Is Trained
There is no doubt that GPT-4, the latest iteration of the artificial-intelligence engine created by the company OpenAI, is innovative and cool. It can create a poem in the style of Basho, spell out the chord progression and time signature for a simple tune, and provide a seven-step recipe for a peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich.
OpenAI checked to see whether GPT-4 could take over the world
As part of pre-release safety testing for its new GPT-4 AI model, launched Tuesday, OpenAI allowed an AI testing group to assess the potential risks of the model's emergent capabilities—including "power-seeking behavior," self-replication, and self-improvement.
Applied use cases
Misinformation, mistakes and the Pope in a puffer: what rapidly evolving AI can – and can’t – do
Generative AI – including large language models such as GPT-4, and image generators such as DALL-E, Midjourney, and Stable Diffusion – is advancing in a “storm of hype and fright”, as some commentators have observed.
How to Tell If a Photo Is an AI-Generated Fake
Artificial-intelligence-powered image-generating systems are making fake photographs so hard to detect that we need AI to catch them
AI might not steal your job, but it could change it
GPT-4 recently passed the Universal Bar Exam, which is the standard test required to license lawyers. Casetext uses AI to conduct “document review, legal research memos, deposition preparation and contract analysis,” according to its website.
Letter signed by Elon Musk demanding AI research pause sparks controversy
A letter co-signed by Elon Musk and thousands of others demanding a pause in artificial intelligence research has created a firestorm, after the researchers cited in the letter condemned its use of their work, some signatories were revealed to be fake, and others backed out on their support.
The strange new world of AI power, politics and the ‘pause’
The noisy debates around AI risk and regulation got many decibels louder last week, while simultaneously becoming even harder to decipher.
FTC should stop OpenAI from launching new GPT models, says AI policy group
An artificial intelligence-focused tech ethics group has asked the Federal Trade Commission to investigate OpenAI for violating consumer protection rules, arguing that the organization’s rollout of AI text generation tools has been “biased, deceptive, and a risk to public safety.”
A four-legged robotic system for playing soccer on various terrains
“DribbleBot” can maneuver a soccer ball on landscapes such as sand, gravel, mud, and snow, using reinforcement learning to adapt to varying ball dynamics.
CARMA II: A ground vehicle for autonomous surveying of alpha, beta and gamma radiation
This paper presents an autonomous ground vehicle that can survey nuclear facilities for alpha, beta and gamma radiation and generate radiation heatmaps.
News Robots Using Legs as Arms to Climb and Push Buttons
Roboticists at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of California, Berkeley, are training robot dogs to use their legs for manipulation, not just locomotion, demonstrating skills that include climbing walls, pressing buttons, and even kicking a soccer ball.
Research Brief: Breakthrough Enables Perfectly Secure Secret Communications
In research that seems ripped from the pages of a spy novel, a team from Carnegie Mellon University and Oxford University have developed an algorithm that conceals sensitive information so effectively that it is impossible to detect.
Scaling vision transformers to 22 billion parameters
This paper introduces the biggest dense vision model, ViT-22B. It is 5.5x larger than the previous largest vision backbone, ViT-e, which has 4 billion parameters.
