What if I told a story here, how would that story start?" Thus, the summarization prompt: "My second grader asked me what this passage means: …" When a given prompt isn't working and GPT-3 keeps pivoting into other modes of completion, that may mean that one hasn't constrained it enough by imitating a correct output, and one needs to go further; writing the first few words or sentence of the target output may be necessary.



Tesla shares plunge after Elon Musk smokes joint on Joe Rogan podcast

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Tesla shares have plunged this morning after Elon Musk smoked marijuana and drank whiskey while discussing everything from drugs to the possibility we're all living in a simulation, in a rambling two-and-a-half hour podcast appearance which was live-streamed on YouTube. The 47-year-old billionaire went on the Joe Rogan Experience late on Thursday night and accepted a joint from the host - after a rambling conversation that also took in the dangers of AI and the possibility China is spying on US citizens through their phones. Hours later, the company's chief accounting officer Dave Morton resigned citing'public attention' on the company. Meanwhile, shares plummeted to nine per cent this morning, wiping $4.3 billion off the company's value. By close of trading they had slightly recovered to a 6.3 per cent drop, reducing the company's value by $3.1bn. It follows weeks of serious turbulence for both Musk and Tesla, after he falsely announced he was taking the company private in a deal with Saudi Arabia and accused a British hero diver of being a paedophile.

US Air Force Wants to Use AI Technology to Gather Intelligence From Social Media

To illustrate his position, he used the example of the MH17 plane crash. "When the Russians shot down the airliner, and we were searching for the smoking gun, we found it a month later -- on Facebook," the general said at an Air Force Association breakfast in Washington Wednesday, according to DefenseTech.com. Goldfein pointed the finger at Russia for the crash, as though the Netherlands have already made a conclusion as to who shot the Buk missile that brought the plane down (which they have not). "We found posted pictures on Russian blog sites that actually showed the activity, but it took us a month to figure that out," Goldfein said, leaning on social media as a source of reliable information, even though investigation of the MH17 catastrophe is still going on and it is hampered by "a great deal of disinformation and attempts to discredit the investigation," Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders said in a statement earlier in July, according to France 24. Discussing a trip to the offices of the Bloomberg news agency, he reportedly asked a technician to perform a Twitter search on violent extremist activity over the last 48 hours, and the system actually mapped the relevant tweets on a map.

Facebook's internet drone crash-landed because it was windy

Engadget

Facebook celebrated the first full test flight of its solar-powered internet drone, Aquila, in July, but things didn't go as smoothly as they could have. The drone completed a 96-minute flight in Yuma, Arizona, but it ended up crash-landing because of a structural failure in the right wing, according to today's report from the National Transportation Safety Board. The NTSB announced in November that it would investigate the accident. Aquila's only landing mode is "autoland," meaning the aircraft senses things like wind speeds and temperature, and adjusts for the smoothest landing possible. During its debut test flight, operators expected wind speeds of 7 knots.


Facebook drone crashes as part of Zuckerberg's dream to bring internet to everyone

Daily Mail - Science & tech

The National Transportation Safety Board is looking into an accident involving an enormous experimental drone belonging to Facebook which crashed earlier this year. The drone was built to bring internet to far-flung parts of the planet and designed to hover 60,000 ft above the surface of the Earth. However, in June the drone known as Aquila, ended up plummeting to earth after suffering a'structural failure' as it was coming into land. No one was hurt in the incident. The drone, called Aquila, suffered from a'structural failure' right before it landed According to Bloomberg the crash is one of several hiccups that the social network has faced in recent months, following an explosion earlier this year that destroyed one of its satellites.
