Mind-reading technology is everyone's next big security nightmare ZDNet

#artificialintelligence

Technology allowing our thoughts and feelings to be translated into a digital form – and shared – is already a reality. Brain computer interfaces (BCI) allow us to connect our minds to computers for some limited purposes, and big tech companies including Facebook and many startups want to make this technology commonplace. The AI and ML deployments are well underway, but for CXOs the biggest issue will be managing these initiatives, and figuring out where the data science team fits in and what algorithms to buy versus build. For those of you terrified by the prospect of technology recording – and broadcasting – your opinions of the boss, your secret fears, or anything else – relax. BCIs are currently not sophisticated enough to collect such granular information.


How will human augmentation affect sustainability?

#artificialintelligence

If Facebook and Elon Musk's ambitions to directly connect human brains to machines are any indication, it seems we will become increasingly dependent on smart devices. Less bombastic than this proposal, but already widespread, are more mundane forms of augmentation – neural prostheses allow brains to control replacement body parts, artificial organs can be designed to specific bodies, and embedded devices like insulin pumps can intelligently support their hosts. With this is mind, we asked six experts the following question: How will technologically augmenting humans affect sustainability? The implications of human augmentation are so complex that it is difficult to succinctly assess what their implications will be for sustainability. There are, of course, potential benefits.


Welcome to the 5G Radioactive Network Have You Had Your Daily Dose of Radiation Today?

#artificialintelligence

This 2019 Radiation activist are warning that the New 5G networks are a'massive health experiment' and a'Global catastrophe' waiting to happen. The New 5G Network in the foreground of controversy, promises lightning-fast speeds and the ability to power new technologies like self-driving cars and advanced augmented and virtual reality experiences. But an undercurrent to all of the things we can do with 5G is concern about what 5G can do to us. There are concerns that the very high-frequency spectrum known as millimeter wavelengths used in early deployments to make 5G a reality could pose adverse health effects for the public. A leading activist on the issue of electromagnetic radiation and its negative impacts on public health has described the rollout of 5G as a "massive health experiment" which could "become a global catastrophe."


AI: Transforming Digital Marketing Strategy!

#artificialintelligence

The integration of AI in digital marketing can make marketing campaigns much more efficient and optimized. Although digital marketing has relied heavily on human creativity, artificial intelligence can do the job using only data. However, new development is that artificial intelligence is carried out quite frequently, and future AI applications may be potentially unlimited. In any case, AI is already making progress in the marketing industry. An important part of Digital Marketing Services is the content promotion plan that your brand carries out.


Facebook is Changing How it Calculates Organic Impressions - Search Engine Journal

#artificialintelligence

Facebook pages are likely to see organic impressions go down as a result of changes being made to how impressions are calculated. Facebook is changing how it calculates organic impressions meaning it will likely show a decline. Here's is a breakdown of the changes as I understand them. Facebook is specifically changing how repeat organic page impressions are calculated. Changes will affect the time frame in which organic impressions from the same person are calculated.


Drone footage shows SpaceX Starship being built with stainless steel towers gleaming in Florida sun

Daily Mail - Science & tech

A birds-eye view of three of SpaceX's glimmering Starship spacecraft shows that the vessels are slowly but surely coming together. In aerial footage taken by videographer John Winkopp, the Starship craft's shimmering stainless steel body can be seen taking ship at the company's facility in Cocoa, Florida. As reported by CNBC, the video also shows the first stainless steel bands of another Starship prototype, the Mark 4, being assembled. The progress gives credence to a claim from SpaceX CEO and Tesla founder, Elon Musk, who claimed that the next-generation craft will be ready for test flights between October and November. An FCC filing surfaced in September that revealed SpaceX requested permission to fly Starship more than 12 miles into orbit and then land the craft back down in the same spot.

#artificialintelligence

The graph represents a network of 3,608 Twitter users whose recent tweets contained "#4IR", or who were replied to or mentioned in those tweets, taken from a data set limited to a maximum of 18,000 tweets. The network was obtained from Twitter on Friday, 26 April 2019 at 14:18 UTC. The tweets in the network were tweeted over the 9-day, 8-hour, 28-minute period from Wednesday, 17 April 2019 at 05:38 UTC to Friday, 26 April 2019 at 14:07 UTC. Additional tweets that were mentioned in this data set were also collected from prior time periods. These tweets may expand the complete time period of the data.

Artificial Intelligence Learns to Talk Back to Bigots

#artificialintelligence

Social media platforms like Facebook use a combination of artificial intelligence and human moderators to scout out and eliminate hate speech. But now researchers have developed a new AI tool that wouldn't just scrub hate speech but would actually craft responses to it, like: "The language used is highly offensive. All ethnicities and social groups deserve tolerance." "And this type of intervention response can hopefully short-circuit the hate cycles that we often get in these types of forums." The idea, she says, is to fight hate speech with more speech--an approach advocated by the ACLU and the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights.
