FOX News

Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., shares her takeaways from Tuesday's AI hearing with OpenAI CEO Sam Altman. She also reveals what next steps she and her colleagues are prepared to take to protect consumer data amid the AI boom. Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., is calling on Congress to pass an internet user privacy standard as a first step toward making sure Americans are knowledgeable and their data safe amid the rapid advancement of artificial intelligence (AI) technology. Blackburn is one of four Republicans on the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on intellectual property (IP). The panel is holding a hearing Wednesday afternoon titled, "Artificial Intelligence and Intellectual Property – Part I: Patents, Innovation, and Competition."

Invisible AI's 'intelligent agent' cameras can see what autoworkers and machines are doing wrong

FOX News

FOX Business correspondent Lydia Hu has the latest on jobs at risk as AI further develops on'America's Newsroom.' Tesla CEO Elon Musk often refers to the automobile factory as "the machine that builds the machine," but there are plenty of human workers involved in even the most highly automated plants. They remain a key part of the exceedingly complex process that is automobile assembly but need to operate as efficiently as their mechanical counterparts to keep cars and trucks coming off the line with a combination of quality and speed. Weeding out issues and making sure everything is running smoothly has traditionally meant sending quality control personnel up and down the lines to get eyes on the action. WHAT ARE THE FOUR MAIN TYPES OF AI? Palo Alto-based Invisible AI was founded by veterans of the autonomous car industry who saw an alternative for the artificial intelligence-driven machine vision technology they were working on that could come to market long before the mass acceptance of self-driving cars.

Sight Extended review – unsettling tale is an eye-opener in our age of AI anxiety

The Guardian

This disturbingly real-looking artificial intelligence sci-fi was made a couple of years ago on what looks like a budget of small change tipped out of the film-makers' coin jars. It's getting a release now presumably on account of AI anxiety creeping up the league table of things that keep people awake at night. Like the Nosedive episode of Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror, the premise here is that in an apparently-near future people wear contact lenses that feed them information about the world. Andrew Riddell plays Patrick, who like everyone else wears dazzling blue contact lenses that fill the air around him with holograms. Patrick is an agoraphobic who hasn't left his apartment for over a month; he spends his time playing computer games, going hammer and tongs with 3D zombies.

US, China competition for artificial intelligence dominance will 'dictate the future of humanity' warn experts

FOX News

Experts discuss what is at stake in the AI race between the United States and China, warning it could'dictate the future of humanity.' As artificial intelligence (AI) systems rapidly advance, the U.S. and China are both investing time and resources into developing the technology, but experts are divided on who controls the most advanced systems, who will be the front-runner to shape free speech and power in modern society. "The race between the U.S. and China, I think it's going to dictate the future of humanity," Dr. Michael Capps, the CEO of Diveplane, told Fox News Digital. "The Chinese government, Chinese military, and Chinese technology are all working in concert to win the AI race," he added. "In the United States, I would say that US technologists are working on it really hard, but not the government, and not the military. President Xi is 100% focused on it. Putin has said whoever wins the air race, wins World War III before it happens."

'What should the limits be?' The father of ChatGPT on whether AI will save humanity – or destroy it

The Guardian

When I meet Sam Altman, the chief executive of AI research laboratory OpenAI, he is in the middle of a world tour. He is preaching that the very AI systems he and his competitors are building could pose an existential risk to the future of humanity – unless governments work together now to establish guide rails, ensuring responsible development over the coming decade. In the subsequent days, he and hundreds of tech leaders, including scientists and "godfathers of AI", Geoffrey Hinton and Yoshua Bengio, as well as Google's DeepMind CEO, Demis Hassabis, put out a statement saying that "mitigating the risk of extinction from AI should be a global priority alongside other societal-scale risks such as pandemics and nuclear war". It is an all-out effort to convince world leaders that they are serious when they say that "AI risk" needs concerted international effort. It must be an interesting position to be in – Altman, 38, is the daddy of AI chatbot ChatGPT, after all, and is leading the charge to create "artificial general intelligence", or AGI, an AI system capable of tackling any task a human can achieve.

Samsung's auto chip to power Hyundai Motor's infotainment starting in 2025


Samsung said on Wednesday that it will be supplying its latest automotive processor to Hyundai Motor for the auto giant's new in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems launching in 2025. It is the South Korean tech giant's first collaboration on automotive semiconductors with Hyundai Motor, one of the largest automobile manufacturers in the world. Exynos Auto V920 is Samsung's third-generation automotive chip aimed at IVI systems. Its CPU packs ten of chip designer Arm's latest cores for autonomous driving, boasting 1.7 times the processing power than the prior generation, the tech giant said. Exynos Auto V920 also supports LPDDR5, the latest high-performance, low-power memory chip, that allows it to manage up to six high-resolution displays and up to 12 camera sensors, Samsung said. The chip also has beefed up graphics __ its GPU cores have double the speed than before __ and AI performances that enhance the visual presentation on displays as well as driver interaction with in-car information, the company said.

Instagram may roll out its own AI chatbot in the near future


We're seeing artificial intelligence chatbots pop up all over the place, and soon enough you may very well have access to one in Instagram, too. Reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi claims the platform has an AI agent in the pipeline. According to screenshots he shared (as spotted by ZDNet), the chatbot will be able to answer questions and give advice. You may have as many as 30 personalities to choose from too. The chatbot could give those who find it difficult to write messages some help. It also seems you'll be able to bring the chatbot into a conversation you're having with someone by @-mentioning it.
