Most Americans want AI regulation -- and they want it yesterday


Nearly two-thirds of Americans want the U.S to regulate the development and use of artificial intelligence in the next year or sooner -- with half saying that regulation should have begun yesterday, according to a Morning Consult poll. Another 13% say that regulation should start in the next year. "You can thread this together," Austin Carson, founder of new nonprofit group SeedAI and former government relations lead for Nvidia, said in an email. "Half or more Americans want to address all of these things, split pretty evenly along ideological lines." The poll, which SeedAI commissioned, backs up earlier findings that while U.S. adults support investment in the development of AI, they want clear rules around that development.

The Pros and Cons of Enlisting AI for Cybersecurity


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the faculty of a computer system to learn and reason, therefore, mimicking human intelligence. Over the course of the past several years, AI has become an indispensable part of cybersecurity measures. AI can predict cyberattacks with matchless precision, helps to create better security features that can bring down the number of cyberattacks and mitigate its impact on IT infrastructure. Artificial intelligence is a powerful cybersecurity tool for enterprises. It is rapidly turning into a sophisticated protective gear for enterprise cybersecurity, and many enterprises are adopting it at a rapid pace. Statista, in a recent post, noted that in 2019 approximately 83% of organizations based in the United States consider that without AI, their organization fails to deal with cyberattacks.

AI rises up the ranks of the military


From programs that can process a vast amount of data for intelligence gathering to the future of autonomous weapons, AI is becoming key to our operations -- and our international competition. Why it matters: Military dominance in the future won't be decided just by the size of a nation's army, but the quality of its algorithms. Driving the news: The National Counterintelligence and Security Center said in a new paper published Friday that China and Russia are using legal and illegal methods to undermine and overtake U.S. dominance in critical industries including AI and autonomous systems, my Axios colleague Zach Basu writes. Yes, but: So is the U.S., particularly in defense. Between the lines: Intelligence gathering and analysis is one of the fields where AI can make the biggest difference now for defense, says George Hoyem, managing partner at In-Q-Tel (IQT), the venture investment unit for the U.S. intelligence community.

Top 10 Boot Camps to Learn Machine Learning in 2021


Machine learning technology can autonomously identify malignant tumors, pilot Teslas, and subtitle videos in real-time. The term "autonomous" is tricky here because machine learning still requires a lot of human ingenuity to get these jobs done. It works like this: An algorithm scans a massive dataset. Engineers don't tell it exactly what to look for in this initial dataset, which could consist of images, audio clips, emails, and more. Instead, the algorithm conducts a freeform analysis.

Why is Cybersecurity Failing Against Ransomware?


Yes, security is hard – no one is ever 100 percent safe from the threats lurking out there. But how is it that time and time again, companies – big companies – are continuing to fall for ransomware attacks? Let's explore the main reasons why, starting with some basics before getting more in-depth: Two-factor authentication (2FA) is probably the easiest security improvement an organization can implement, and it's one of the most advocated-for solutions by infosec professionals. Despite this, we continue to see breaches like Colonial Pipeline occur because organizations have either failed to implement 2FA or have failed to *fully* implement it. Anything that requires a username and password to access should have 2FA enabled.

How Tycoons Created the Dinosaur - Issue 107: The Edge


The dinosaur is a chimera. Some parts of this complex assemblage are the result of biological evolution. But others are products of human ingenuity, constructed by artists, scientists, and technicians in a laborious process that stretches from the dig site to the naturalist's study and the museum's preparation lab. The mounted skeletons that have become such a staple of natural history museums most closely resemble mixed media sculptures, having been cobbled together from a large number of disparate elements that include plaster, steel, and paint, in addition to fossilized bone. When standing before one of these towering creatures, such as the T. rex skeleton named Sue in Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History, it is surprisingly difficult to distinguish which features are ancient and which ones are modern, where prehistory ends and imagination begins. If dinosaurs in museums are chimeras, their prehistoric antecedents are unobservable entities. In this respect, dinosaurs resemble subatomic particles like electrons, neutrons, and positrons. Both are inaccessible to direct observation, but for different reasons.

China beats the USA in Artificial Intelligence and international awards - Modern Diplomacy


The incoming US Secretary of the Air Force said that China was winning the battle of Artificial Intelligence over the United States. He admitted that China would soon defeat the United States in this high-tech field. Although the Secretary of the Air Force appointed by President Joe Biden has not yet taken office, he publicly replied to the biggest recent controversy in US political and military circles: the Air Force Chief Software Officer, Nicholas Chaillan, who resigned on October 11 last, said that China had already overtaken the United States and won the battle of Artificial Intelligence against it. Kendall III said he agreed with the statement made by Chaillan. Nicholas Chaillan told the media that the United States not only made slow progress in the field of Artificial Intelligence, but that the said progress was also limited by various rules.

Biden widely mocked on social media for bizarre hand gestures

FOX News

Fox News Flash top headlines are here. Check out what's clicking on Social media users took to the internet following President Biden's recent town hall, drawing comparisons between his behavior and that of the cartoon character Beavis from "Beavis and Butt-head" At one point during the town hall, Biden was shown holding his arms bent out in front of him with his fists clinched. That moment was clipped and shared to social media by several people, including political commentator Mike Cernovich, who questioned, "What is Biden doing?" "Biden is straight comedy," wrote former NBA player Andrew Bogut. Other users simply shared photos of the president in the moment alongside pictures of Beavis, who is known for a hyperactive alter-ego, The Great Cornholio, that exhibits the same behavior.
