AI Systems Might Prefer Human Language Instead of Numerical Data

#artificialintelligence

New research coming from Columbia Engineering suggests that artificial intelligence (AI) systems prefer human language instead of numeral data like 1s and 0s. The new study is from Mechanical Engineering Professor Hod Lipson and PhD student Boyuan Chen, and it demonstrated that AI systems could reach higher performance levels if programmed with human language sound files.


Girls of Steel Robotics 2021 - CMU Crowdfunding

CMU School of Computer Science

The Girls of Steel, FIRST Robotics Competition Team 3504, founded in 2010 at Carnegie Mellon's Field Robotics Center, has a team mission to empower everyone, especially women and girls, to believe they are capable of success in STEM. The principles of our team include: teamwork, communication, respect, integrity, inclusion, and safety. We teach mechanical and technical skills, programming and analytical thinking, as well as leadership, teamwork, and business skills. We also value a commitment to quality, ethical behavior, and respect for others. Through outreach we aim to educate young people in STEM using hands-on design and development of a robot.


The Morning After: Touring Mercedes' very luxurious EV

Engadget

This "S-Class of EVs" is the first full-electric car from Mercedes to come to the US, combining a low drag coefficient with a large battery pack for a range of 478 miles, using Europe's WLTP estimate. Tesla, Porsche and Audi already have electric luxury sedans, but this looks like an interesting and extremely classy competitor. Roberto Baldwin is ready to walk us through the features and its futuristic interior, which includes a biometric sensor for logging in with voice or fingerprint. There's no word on how much it will cost, and we haven't taken it on the road yet, but I'm already digging its unique taillights and fastback hatch. It's barely been a month since DJI unveiled a new drone, and the company already has another to show.


Ground zero for gaming memes: 10 excellent video game TikTok accounts

The Guardian

ShelbyRenae – @shelbyrenaeyt A Fortnite Twitch streamer and YouTuber, ShelbyRenae makes hilarious (and often very telling) TikToks focusing on her conversations with the strangers she plays with, mostly teenage boys who chuck out endless bizarre insults and gigantically inappropriate comments. Alisha – @alishakins_ Mainly a Twitch streamer, Alisha makes brilliant little TikToks of her experiences playing Call of Duty: Warzone, providing a turbo-charged voiceover, complete with her own sound effects – mostly, "Pew, pew, pew! The latest video shows the amazing full-size cabinet for Sega's Let's Go Jungle, designed to resemble an offroad truck. DKOldies – @dkoldies Similar to the above, DKOldies is an online retro gaming store and its TikTok shows off interesting items from its vast stock including rare games, ancient consoles and weird controllers. Komazawa Isolation – @kmzwisolation A Japanese YouTuber who makes astonishingly accurate real-life reenactments of games such as Grand Theft Auto and Yakuza.

Facial recognition systems are deciding your gender for you. Activists say that needs to stop - Coda Story

#artificialintelligence

If you rode the metro in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo in 2018, you might have come across a new kind of advertising. Glowing interactive doors featured content targeted at individuals, according to assumptions made by artificial intelligence based on their appearance. Fitted with facial recognition cameras, the screens made instantaneous decisions about passengers' gender, age and emotional state, then served them ads accordingly. Digital rights groups said the technology violated the rights of trans and non-binary people because it assigned gender to individuals based on the physical shape of their face, potentially making incorrect judgments as to their identity. It also maintained a strictly male-female model of gender, ignoring the existence of non-binary people.


Feel free to learn Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

With the help of this list, any person who is interested in artificial intelligence or machine learning can feel free to learn all about it. In this course, the instructor is going to talk about the meaning behind the common AI terminology. It includes explanations about neural networks, machine learning, data science, and deep learning. Then the instructor will talk about what AI can and can't do realistically. Similarly, you will also get to understand how to spot opportunities to apply AI to different problems in your own organization.

Artificial Intelligence Research at Duke

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence research at Duke covers everything from health to enhancing photos to machine learning. See what some Duke researchers are doing in the field. During Winter Breakaway, David Carlson, an assistant professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering taught "AI for Everyone," which included an introduction to the math and computations underlying machine learning and artificial intelligence. Duke student brothers worked together in a home office in Tampa to develop a machine learning system to help clinicians spot the telltale'ground glass opacities' in the lung scans of potential Covid patients. Because no two brains are alike, machine learning is being used to help neurosurgeons home in on the precise area where the electrode should go to treat Parkinson's disease with deep brain stimulation.
