How to Stop the Elizabeth Holmes of A.I.


Elizabeth Holmes convinced investors and patients that she had a prototype of a microsampling machine that could run a wide range of relatively accurate tests using a fraction of the volume of blood usually required. She lied; the Edison and miniLab devices didn't work. Worse still, the company was aware they didn't work, but continued to give patients inaccurate information about their health, including telling healthy pregnant women that they were having miscarriages and producing false positives on cancer and HIV screenings. But Holmes, who has to report to prison by May 30, was convicted of defrauding investors; she wasn't convicted of defrauding patients. This is because the principles of ethics for disclosure to investors, and the legal mechanisms used to take action against fraudsters like Holmes, are well developed.

5 things conservatives need to know before AI wipes out conservative thought altogether

FOX News

Texas residents share how familiar they are with artificial intelligence on a scale from one to 10 and detailed how much they use it each day. The "Godfather of A.I.," Geoffrey Hinton, quit Google out of fear that his former employer intends to deploy artificial intelligence in ways that will harm human beings. "It is hard to see how you can prevent the bad actors from using it for bad things," Hinton recently told The New York Times. But stomping out the door does nothing to atone for his own actions, and it certainly does nothing to protect conservatives – who are the primary target of A.I. programmers – from being canceled. Here are five things to know as the battle over A.I. turns hot: Elon Musk recently revealed that Google co-founder Larry Page and other Silicon Valley leaders want AI to establish a "digital god" that "would understand everything in the world.

Biden makes 'equity,' civil rights a top priority in development of 'responsible' AI

FOX News

The Biden administration on Tuesday sought input from the public on how to ensure artificial intelligence develops in a way that supports "equity" and civil rights and helps "underserved communities," as part of a broader plan to promote "responsible" AI. The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) announced it is seeking input from any interested party on how to reach these and other goals as AI systems are developed. Policymakers and AI developers are increasingly in agreement on the need for federal rules, and possibly even a new federal agency, to ensure the risks of AI are managed. To inform this work, OSTP asked a series of questions on how to protect people's rights and safety as AI systems become more widely used, as well as questions related to "advancing equity and strengthening civil rights. HERE'S HOW AI IS BEING USED TO UNLOCK SECRETS STILL HIDDEN IN THE HUMAN BRAIN President Biden on Tuesday released a new plan for government research into AI, and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy is asking how to make sure AI boosts'equity.'

Jake Sullivan pressed on Syria drone strike after US walks back claim it killed major al Qaeda leader

FOX News

Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, criticizes America's stance on the world stage at the hands of President Joe Biden in an exclusive interview on'Sunday Morning Futures.' White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan was pressed in an interview Sunday over an alleged civilian casualty – a father of 10 who was tending sheep – by U.S. forces in Syria. CNN's Jake Tapper asked Sullivan about the reportedly botched missile strike, which the Pentagon initially claimed was a successful assassination of a "senior Al Qaeda leader," but later backtracked and launched an investigation. Sullivan said he could not comment on the matter until the Pentagon's "full and thorough investigation" was complete – and instead touted President Biden's record on military accountability. "It was President Biden who stood up with Secretary Austin's guidelines for this administration to ensure there would be accountability and oversight of any potential civilian casualties from counterterrorism strikes," Sullivan said. "So far we do not have evidence to validate the claims being made in Syria. But I am going to withhold any judgment on what actually happened here until the Pentagon's investigation is complete."

Senate Republicans tout bipartisan actions striking down Biden climate regulations

FOX News

Virginia Tech Professor Walid Saad discusses the environmental impact of artificial intelligence algorithms, including excessive water waste to cool down processors. FIRST ON FOX: Senate Republicans are touting their accomplishments rejecting Biden administration regulations via congressional resolutions that have received support from Democrats. Since January, the Senate has approved seven such resolutions which utilize the Congressional Review Act (CRA), a law dating back nearly three decades that allows Congress to revoke federal regulations. All seven of the CRAs revoked energy- or environment-related regulations with the majority being within the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee's jurisdiction. "When we began this Congress, one of my top priorities was to hold the Biden administration accountable for any overreach on environment and energy issues within our jurisdiction here at the EPW Committee," EPW Committee Ranking Member Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., said in a statement to Fox News Digital.

Biden administration is giving away America's AI dominance

FOX News

We're now seeing the Democrats say the quiet part out loud when it comes to artificial intelligence: they want to control AI development for political purposes. These efforts are not just going to further divide the country, but they will kneecap America's next decade of innovation. This assault on innovation is occurring at both the executive and legislative levels, where Democrats are using the novelty of AI to seize control over speech. Earlier this year, President Biden signed an executive order for agencies to "root out bias" by requiring diversity, equity and inclusion training for AI – ensuring any results are woke approved. This month, Vice President Kamala Harris is also getting in on the AI action by meeting with developers to ensure "equity" in AI.

Biden Administration will invest $140 million to launch seven new National AI Research Institutes


Ahead of a meeting between Vice President Kamala Harris and the heads of America's four leading AI tech companies -- Alphabet, OpenAI, Anthropic and Microsoft -- the Biden Administration announced Thursday a sweeping series of planned actions to help mitigate some of the risks that these emerging technologies pose to the American public. That includes $140 million to launch seven new AI R&D centers as part of the National Science Foundation, extracting commitments from leading AI companies to participate in a "public evaluation" of their AI systems at DEFCON 31, and ordering the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to draft policy guidance for federal employees. "The Biden Harris administration has been leading on these issues since long before these newest generative AI products debuted last fall," a senior administration official said during a reporters call Wednesday. The Administration unveiled its AI Bill of Rights "blueprint" last October, which sought to "help guide the design, development, and deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) and other automated systems so that they protect the rights of the American public," per a White House press release. "At a time of rapid innovation, it is essential that we make clear the values we must advance, and the common sense we must protect," the administration official continued.

China fumes as Biden plots to starve it of AI investment: 'Sci-tech bullying'

FOX News

Fox News contributor Joe Concha joins "Fox & Friends First" to discuss Elon Musk's warning that artificial intelligence could threaten elections and his concerns on the declining birth rate. China is outraged at the Biden administration's plan to steer investment in artificial intelligence away from China and toward other countries, warning that it may take steps to counteract what it calls U.S. "bullying" in the tech sector. The administration for months has hinted that it is developing an executive order aimed at keeping AI and other technology-related investments, such as semiconductors and quantum computing, out of China in order to help the U.S. maintain its competitive edge. Several reports say the administration may be looking to launch the initiative at a mid-May meeting of the Group of Seven nations in Japan. But in a briefing last week, a spokesperson for China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said China is "firmly opposed" to this idea and accused the U.S. of pursuing "selfish interests" using "economic coercion."

FOX News

Ryan Graves, a former Navy fighter pilot, is calling on Biden to lead the investigation into unidentified aerial phenomenon or risk American national security. Former Navy pilot Ryan Graves said that if the Biden administration doesn't investigate UFOs in American airspace, then the U.S. risks being outmaneuvered by a foreign power. Graves, who has testified that he has witnessed Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs) during his career as a fighter pilot, was responding to a congressional hearing from Wednesday. Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick, who is director of the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) under the Pentagon, warned Congress about the dangers of UAPs during his testimony.
