Sending drones thousands of miles away without proper intelligence isn't good enough: Rep. Waltz

FOX News

Rep. Mike Waltz and former national security adviser to VP Pence Gen. Keith Kellogg react to the mistaken drone strike killing innocent civilians. "Sunday Night in America" host Trey Gowdy discussed the recent reveal that the drone strike in Kabul touted by the Biden administration struck down civilians including seven children. "When you're looking at a drone strike, those drones could basically read a license plate on a car, that's how good their optics are," Kellogg said. "My concerns are that just a couple of days after the ISIS-K strike that killed 13 great Americans and wounded 20, I think there was a big push to try to get these planners. Remember, we were told these were ISIS-K planners when they weren't. They were tracking a white van for approximately 8 hours, then they said it was a righteous kill. And they were dead wrong about it."

FOX News

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo weighs in on the Biden administration's handling of the U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan and the botched Kabul drone strike. Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo slammed the "failed" drone strike in Kabul that was aimed at ISIS-K terrorists, after the Pentagon admitted on Friday that the attack instead killed an aid worker and members of his family including seven children. Speaking with Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures," Pompeo noted that "it's obviously a tragedy that civilians were killed" and argued that the botched strike "is just another piece of an evacuation that was driven by politics" and not driven by "putting America first." SANDERS CHARGES U.S. DRONE STRIKE THAT KILLED AFGHAN CHILDREN WAS'UNACCEPTABLE' Head of the U.S. Central Command Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. announced Friday that it is unlikely any ISIS-K members were killed in the Kabul drone strike on August 29, which led to multiple civilian casualties. According to U.S. officials, the strike on the vehicle, formerly believed to have been a threat that included bombs and that was operated by ISIS-K militants, took place after a suicide bombing at Kabul airport in Afghanistan killed 13 U.S. service members and civilians.


Want to develop a risk-management framework for AI? Treat it like a human.

The Transform Technology Summits start October 13th with Low-Code/No Code: Enabling Enterprise Agility. Artificial intelligence (AI) technologies offer profoundly important strategic benefits and hazards for global businesses and government agencies. One of AI's greatest strengths is its ability to engage in behavior typically associated with human intelligence -- such as learning, planning, and problem solving. AI, however, also brings new risks to organizations and individuals, and manifests those risks in perplexing ways. It is inevitable that AI will soon face increased regulation.


Sanders charges U.S. drone strike that killed Afghan children was 'unacceptable'

Fox News anchor Bret Baier offers analysis on that and other breaking news stories, on'Your World'. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont is calling the U.S. drone strike in Afghanistan that mistakenly killed seven children "unacceptable."

But reports of civilian causalities quickly emerged and U.S. military leaders later concluded that the strike killed 10 civilians, including seven children.


NTSB head says Tesla must address 'basic safety issues' with semi-autonomous features

Engadget

Tesla isn't about to get a sympathetic ear from US regulators as it rolls out more semi-autonomous technology. New National Transportation Safety Board head Jennifer Homendy told The Wall Street Journal in an interview that Tesla needs to tackle "basic safety issues" before it expands features like Autopilot and Full Self Driving to more parts of the road. She also wasn't thrilled with Tesla beta-testing upgrades on public streets. Like other critics, the NTSB leader took issue with Tesla's naming schemes for its driver assists. The Full Self Driving label is "misleading and irresponsible," Homendy said, leading some to "misuse and abuse" it.


Safety-minded feds want Tesla to pump the brakes on Full Self-Driving

Mashable

Elon Musk has been promising a wider rollout of Tesla's Full Self-Driving program for months. Now, just a couple days after his latest tweet on the matter, U.S. authorities are asking Tesla to slow its roll. The National Transportation Safety Board, a federal agency tasked with investigating all manner of vehicular accidents and vehicle safety, would like Tesla to hold off on its wider launch of FSD, citing safety concerns. The agency doesn't have the authority to make that an order, but its publicly shared recommendation still carries plenty of weight. "Basic safety issues have to be addressed before they're then expanding it to other city streets and other areas," NTSB head Jennifer Homendy said in a Wall Street Journal interview.

Eleos Health raises $6M for behavioral health focused AI voice tech

#artificialintelligence

This morning Eleos Health, a company that uses AI-backed voice technology to gather insights into behavioral health, scored $6 million in seed funding. The funding news coincides with the company's announcement that Dr. David Shulkin, former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, has joined the company's board. The Israeli company created a tool that uses voice AI capabilities to help mental health professionals analyze their patients. Clinicians can run the technology in the background of a mental health session. The system is then able to analyze the session based on "hundreds of data parameters" and in turn give clinicians more insights and information about the patient, and in turn help personalize care.
