Can we be friends? Dating apps say sex isn't everything in a post-pandemic world

The Japan Times

I've just come out of a long-term lockdown. Instead, they crave the friendships and social groups they have been starved of over the past year. That's the verdict of dating apps such as Tinder and Bumble, which are launching or acquiring new services focused entirely on making and maintaining friends. "There's a really interesting trend that has been taking place in the connection space, which is this desire to have platonic relationships," said Bumble founder and CEO Whitney Wolfe Herd. "People are seeking friendship in ways they would have only done offline before the pandemic."

Announcing the winners of the Sample-Efficient Sequential Bayesian Decision Making request for proposals - Facebook Research


In February 2021, Facebook launched a request for proposals (RFP) on sample-efficient sequential Bayesian decision-making. View RFP In a Q&A about the RFP, Core Data Science researchers said they are keen to learn more about all the great research that is going on in the area of Bayesian optimization. Eytan Bakshy and Max Balandat, members of the team behind the RFP, also spoke about sharing a number of really interesting real-world use cases that they hope can help inspire additional applied research and increase interest and research activity into sample-efficient sequential Bayesian decision-making. The team reviewed 89 high-quality proposals and are pleased to announce the two winning proposals below, as well as the 10 finalists. Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit a proposal, and congratulations to the winners.

A New Wave of Dating Apps Takes Cues From TikTok and Gen Z


The pandemic could have doomed online dating. Instead, it sent singles swiping more than ever before. Sanctions on in-person meetups drove the adoption of new products, like video dating, and persuaded more people to pay for premium features. All in all, the industry had a chartbusting year. "Acceptance and normalization of online dating was already underway before Covid-19," says John Madigan, an analyst at business research firm IBISWorld, but tailwinds from the pandemic have accelerated growth.

Is your phone really listening to your conversations? Well, turns out it doesn't have to


Have you ever chatted with a friend about buying a certain item and been targeted with an ad for that same item the next day? If so, you may have wondered whether your smartphone was "listening" to you. Well, it's no coincidence the item you'd been interested in was the same one you were targeted with. But that doesn't mean your device is actually listening to your conversations -- it doesn't need to. There's a good chance you're already giving it all the information it needs.

Impact of technology on human life

Communication, transportation, education and learning, healthcare, and many other infrastructure business areas have benefited from technological advancements. Technology has an impact on how people communicate, learn, and think. It contributes to society and influences how individuals interact daily.

Facebook's new Artificial Intelligence technology not only identifies Deepfakes, it can also gives hints about their origin


Facebook's new Artificial Intelligence technology not only identifies Deepfakes, it can also gives hints about their origin Artificial intelligence (AI) created videos and pictures have become much popular and that can create some serious problems as well, because you can create fake videos, and manipulated images of any type to put anyone in trouble. Deepfakes use deep learning models to create fictitious photos, videos, and events. These days, deepfakes look so realistic that it becomes very difficult to identify the real picture from the fake one with a normal human eye, therefore, Facebook's AI team has created a model in collaboration with a group of Michigan State University that has the ability to identify not only the fabricated picture or videos, but it can even trace the origin. The latest technology of Facebook checks the resemblances from a compilation of deepfakes datasets to find out if they have a common basis, looking for a distinctive model such as small specks of noise or minor quirks in the color range of a photo. By spotting the small finger impressions in the photo, the new AI model is capable to distinguish particulars of how the impartial network that produced the photo was invented, such as how large the prototype is and how it was prepared.

Technical Challenges of AI in Moderating Hate Speech Even in 2021


The spread of misinformation and hate speech is increasing on multiple social media platforms affecting a certain group of people. Celebrities and politicians are experiencing the most as primary targets but that is affecting the minds of common people as well. The malicious digital content also contains hate speech regarding different ethnicity and minorities like LGBTQ. Hate speech travels faster than light on social media platforms. This can develop violence, riots, or other dangerous impacts in society. It is seen that AI models and deep learning algorithms are advancing as per time but it is still struggling in moderating hate speech.

Dear enterprise IT: Cybercriminals use AI too


In a 2017 Deloitte survey, only 42% of respondents considered their institutions to be extremely or very effective at managing cybersecurity risk. The pandemic has certainly done nothing to alleviate these concerns. Despite increased IT security investments companies made in 2020 to deal with distributed IT and work-from-home challenges, nearly 80% of senior IT workers and IT security leaders believe their organizations lack sufficient defenses against cyberattacks, according to IDG. Unfortunately, the cybersecurity landscape is poised to become more treacherous with the emergence of AI-powered cyberattacks, which could enable cybercriminals to fly under the radar of conventional, rules-based detection tools. For example, when AI is thrown into the mix, "fake email" could become nearly indistinguishable from trusted contact messages.
