Microsoft Patched Bing Vulnerability That Allowed Snooping on Email WSJD - Technology

Microsoft Corp. patched a dangerous security issue in Bing last month days before it launched a new artificial intelligence-powered version of the search engine. The problem was discovered by outside researchers at the security firm Wiz Inc. It was created by a mistake in the way that Microsoft configured applications on Azure, its cloud-computing platform, and could be used to gain access to emails and other documents of people who used Bing, the researchers said.

ChatGPT and AI automation: 300 million jobs could be affected globally, says Goldman Sachs


As many as 300 million full-time jobs around the world could be automated in some way by the newest wave of artificial intelligence that has spawned platforms like ChatGPT, according to Goldman Sachs economists. They predicted in a report Sunday that 18% of work globally could be computerized, with the effects felt more deeply in advanced economies than emerging markets. That's partly because white-collar workers are seen to be more at risk than manual laborers. Administrative workers and lawyers are expected to be most affected, the economists said, compared to the "little effect" seen on physically demanding or outdoor occupations, such as construction and repair work. In the United States and Europe, approximately two-thirds of current jobs "are exposed to some degree of AI automation," and up to a quarter of all work could be done by AI completely, the bank estimates.

'We will live as one in heaven': Belgian man dies by suicide after chatbot exchanges


A Belgian man died by suicide after weeks of unsettling exchanges with an AI-powered chatbot called Eliza, La Libre reports. State secretary for digitalisation Mathieu Michel called it "a serious precedent that must be taken very seriously". The man's wife testified anonymously in the Belgian newspaper La Libre on Tuesday. Six weeks before his death, her husband started chatting with'Eliza', a chatbot created by a US start-up using GPT-J technology, the open-source alternative to OpenAI's GPT-3. "If it wasn't for Eliza, he would still be here. I am convinced of that," she said.

The Digital Insider


Researchers at the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard have harnessed a natural bacterial system to develop a new protein delivery approach that works in human cells and animals. The technology, described today in Nature, can be programmed to deliver a variety of proteins, including ones for gene editing, to different cell types. The system could potentially be a safe and efficient way to deliver gene therapies and cancer therapies. Led by MIT Associate Professor Feng Zhang, who is a McGovern Institute investigator and Broad Institute core member, the team took advantage of a tiny syringe-like injection structure, produced by a bacterium, that naturally binds to insect cells and injects a protein payload into them. The researchers used the artificial intelligence tool AlphaFold to engineer these syringe structures to deliver a range of useful proteins to both human cells and cells in live mice.

Generating a Human Response to Artificial Intelligence on The Future of Work


The ChatBot can't think, but produces much better responses than Google searches, and can be more entertaining than your WhatsApp chats or Instagram feed. This article tracks the recent development of generative AI tools in the context of work automation and asks whether ChatBots will take our jobs, where does that leave us humans and generates some interesting questions for society. In general, Artificial Intelligence, (AI) includes natural language processing, pattern recognition, and machine learning. We have all probably used AI in recent days with one of our apps, Netflix, Uber, Spotify, Prime. The way to look at AI is as a continuation of the general automation trend, more algorithms, and advanced statistics.

ChatGPT-owner OpenAI Fixes 'significant Issue' Exposing User Chat Titles - DellyRanks


As a result of the fix, users will not be able to access their chat history between 1 am PDT (8 am GMT) and 10 am PDT on March 20, Chief Executive Sam Altman said in a tweet. ChatGPT has seen a meteoric growth rate after its launch late last year as people worldwide got creative with prompts that the conversational chatbot uses to create everything from poems and novels to jokes and film scripts. Last week, Microsoft Corp-backed OpenAI launched its artificial intelligence model GPT-4, an upgrade from GPT-3.5, which was made available to users through ChatGPT on Nov. 30. The integration of OpenAI's GPT technology into Microsoft's Bing has driven people to the little-used search engine, according to data from analytics firm Similarweb.

Elon Musk and Others Call for Pause on A.I., Citing 'Risks to Society' - The New York Times


More than 1,000 technology leaders and researchers, including Elon Musk, have urged artificial intelligence labs to pause development of the most advanced systems, warning in an open letter that A.I. tools present "profound risks to society and humanity." A.I. developers are "locked in an out-of-control race to develop and deploy ever more powerful digital minds that no one -- not even their creators -- can understand, predict or reliably control," according to the letter, which was released Wednesday by the nonprofit group Future of Life Institute. Others who signed the letter include Steve Wozniak, a co-founder of Apple; Andrew Yang, an entrepreneur and candidate in the 2020 U.S. presidential election; and Rachel Bronson, the president of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, which sets the Doomsday Clock. "These things are shaping our world," said Gary Marcus, an entrepreneur and academic who has long complained of flaws in A.I. systems, in an interview. "We have a perfect storm of corporate irresponsibility, widespread adoption, lack of regulation and a huge number of unknowns."
