Countries like China, Iran and Russia are known for strictly censoring what their citizens can see on the internet. These authoritarian governments do this to control their people and protect those in power. It can be very difficult, and often dangerous, to try to get around this, but a new tool looks like it could be the best way to beat censorship in these kinds of oppressive countries. Researchers at the University of Maryland have developed a kind of AI that they've named Geneva, which stands for "Genetic Evasion." This AI uses a kind of machine learning to automatically detect bugs and gaps in a country's censorship system so the user can view uncensored content.
