Learning to Discover Social Circles in Ego Networks

Neural Information Processing Systems

Our personal social networks are big and cluttered, and currently there is no good way to organize them. Social networking sites allow users to manually categorize their friends into social circles (e.g. We define a novel machine learning task of identifying users' social circles. We pose the problem as a node clustering problem on a user's ego-network, a network of connections between her friends. We develop a model for detecting circles that combines network structure as well as user profile information.

Clearview AI facial recognition company faces another lawsuit


Clearview AI is "Orwellian," a new lawsuit alleges. Clearview AI, a controversial facial recognition app being used by US law enforcement to identify suspects and other people, is facing another lawsuit. The new suit, filed Thursday, seeks class-action status and $5 million in damages for what it calls willful, reckless or negligent violations of biometrics laws in Illinois by Clearview and CDW. It's fighting Clearview's collection, storage and use of biometric information without written consent, which is illegal, according to the lawsuit, which was spotted earlier Thursday by BuzzFeed. The app identifies people by comparing photos to a database of images scraped from social media and other sites.

A Look at Deepfakes in 2020 Lionbridge AI


Deepfakes are synthetic media, usually videos, created with deep learning technology. By manipulating images, videos, and voices of real people, a deepfake can portray someone doing things they never did, or saying things they never said. By feeding a machine learning model thousands of target images, a deepfake algorithm can learn the details of a person's face. With enough training data, the algorithm can then predict what that person's face would look like when mimicking the expressions of someone else. A similar process is used for training deepfake algorithms to mimic the accent, intonation, and tone of a person's voice.

AI in education – #MSFTEduChat TweetMeet on February 18


We've all seen stories about artificial intelligence in the news and on social media. Chat bots, speech recognition, machine translation and self-driving cars are just a few of the real-life examples you may have heard about or even experienced first-hand. The impact that AI decision-making has on the economy, society, education and our emotional well-being is tremendous. This begs the question: how well equipped are today's teachers to prepare their students for a world increasingly impacted by artificial intelligence and machine learning, and what opportunities and concerns do these developments bring to education? All educators are most welcome to join any time after the event.
