What is GPT-4 (and When?). GPT-4 is a natural language processing…

#artificialintelligence

It has been some time since Robert Scoble wrote this about GPT-4. Which pointed me that OpenAI might be giving access to GPT-4 to a certain closed group of individuals. Not sure if it is a conventional alpha-build or a beta but given the timelines, I am guessing that since Aug 2022, there has been enough time passed, which suggests a beta or even early release candidate. We all know that GPT-3 was a huge leap in itself. The refined model that could spit out fluent paragraphs compared to GPT-2.


Cicero from meta may foreshadow hybrid AI future architectures - DataScienceCentral.com

#artificialintelligence

Cicero, from meta, is an AI that can play (at human comparable capabilities) the game of Diplomacy. The game of diplomacy presents a different set of challenges than Go. Go is based on exploration / exploitation and hence suited to reinforcement learning. To master Go, AlphaGo used reinforcement learning and learnt by extensively playing against itself until it could anticipate its own moves and how those moves would affect the game's outcome. Diplomacy, on the other hand, needs the player to maintain extensive communication, deceive other players, negotiate, form alliances and negotiate.


CMR Surgical launches data-led training programme for Versius robot

#artificialintelligence

CMR Surgical has launched a data-led training programme for its Versius surgical robot system, with the intention of reducing overall training time and improving standardisation in surgical care. The seven-step programme uses data-driven metrics and benchmarking to assess skill levels. This data is captured through the training technology tools and standard observational data, and supports personalised feedback. As a result it is expected that learning curves will be shorter, minimising the cost and time for teams to become proficient. At the same time, the data can help to standardise surgeries with a view to improving outcomes for patients.


The EU's AI Act: Is it unfair to insurers?

#artificialintelligence

The regulation's scope encompasses all sectors (except for military) and aims to introduce a common regulatory and legal framework for AI, ensuring that all AI systems are safe and respect existing law on fundamental rights and values. Personally, I think AI regulation and governance is very important. We've all seen the sci-fi movies where artificially intelligent robots (sorry, beings) take over the world and attempt to bring about the end of humanity as we know it, until some bruised and battered hero saves the day. While that's the worst-case scenario meant only for our screens, there are some real use-cases for AI that are actually quite scary. Think about deepfakes, for example, where AI is used to forge an image, video, or audio recording with such precision that the average human is unlikely to detect any manipulation.


Artificial intelligence is permeating business at last

#artificialintelligence

The machines are coming for your crops--at least in a few fields in America. This autumn John Deere, a tractor-maker, shipped its first fleet of fully self-driving machines to farmers. The tilling tractors are equipped with six cameras which use artificial intelligence (ai) to recognise obstacles and manoeuvre out of the way. Julian Sanchez, who runs the firm's emerging-technology unit, estimates that about half the vehicles John Deere sells have some AI capabilities. That includes systems which use onboard cameras to detect weeds among the crops and then spray pesticides, and combine harvesters which automatically alter their own setting to waste as little grain as possible.


Apple's car is scaled back - if it arrives it will NOT be fully self-driving but could cost $100K

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Apple's long-delayed and troubled car project has been scaled back - it won't be fully self-driving if it arrives in 2026. Known internally as Titan, the Apple car will have a steering wheel and pedals, according to a Bloomberg report, which is a step down from the fully autonomous vehicle the company initially had planned. The Cupertino, California company was first rumored to be working on an electric vehicle with all the stylistic notes and software prowess of its popular smartphones and computers in 2014. The new version of the vehicle will have self-driving features that can be used on highways and will be driven by a system codenamed Denali that uses a processor that's as powerful as'about four of Apple's highest-end Mac chips combined,' Bloomberg's Mark Gorman reports. Apple's long-delayed and troubled car project has been scaled back - it won't be fully self-driving if it arrives in 2026.


Why Data Visualization is Important for Machine Learning?

#artificialintelligence

Data visualization is one of the most effective ways to communicate important information. Growing demand for big data and big data analysis has brought data visualization into the limelight more than ever. If an individual were asked to provide their inference by looking at 1 million data points in a table, it would take an enormous amount of time, or it may not even be possible for an individual to go through all the data. This is where data visualization and data science come into application. Data visualizations use many techniques to present information in an easier form, like pie charts, histograms, corporate graphs, heat maps, fever charts, and many more.


Song You Need: Mumdance loses the reins on "Artificial Intelligence"

#artificialintelligence

What initially introduced me to Mumdance were his grime instrumentals. His collaborations with Novelist -- songs like "Take Time" and "1 Sec" -- placed the punishing buzz and pings of Boy In Da Corner in a cavernous negative space that the foreboding atmosphere diffused into. The English producer's continued to demonstrate his compositional clarity with projects like the 2015 Logos collaboration Different Circles, which brought his beats into the avant-garde, and the shoegaze-drone LP Bliss Signal, an album created with WIFE and released in 2019. Throughout it all, Mumdance has always sounded in control. But on his new song, "Artificial Intelligence," he feels more like a vessel for some kind of demonic pirate rave entity than its conductor.


Opinion

#artificialintelligence

This kind of dislocation has, as I said, been a feature of modern societies for at least two centuries. But something new may be happening now. In the past, the jobs replaced by technology tended to involve manual labor. On the one hand, industrial robots replaced routine assembly-line work. On the other hand, there has been ever-growing demand for knowledge workers, a term coined by the management consultant Peter Drucker in 1959 for people engaged in nonrepetitive problem solving. Many people, myself included, have said that we're increasingly becoming a knowledge economy.


Elon Musk's Neuralink 'botched experiments' revealed by former employee and internal lab notes

Daily Mail - Science & tech

'Botched experiments' by Elon Musk's Neuralink allegedly'kept suffering animals alive for no reason and malpractice caused monkey's brains to hemorrhage' during rushed brain chip testing, a former Neuralink employee and internal lab notes reveal. The billionaire's startup is accused of violating the Animal Welfare Act with its experiments at the University of California, Davis, from 2017 through 2020, which'sacrificed all the animals involved,' a former Neuralink employee, who asked to remain anonymous, told DailyMail.com. One case stood out to them- a monkey sacrificed ahead of schedule due to errors allegedly made during surgery. 'There was no reason to use it,' the former employee, who worked as a necropsy technician, told DailyMail.com. 'BioGlue was not FDA-approved for brain surgery and would never be able to be carried over to human trials.
