The Fight Over Which Uses of Artificial Intelligence Europe Should Outlaw

#artificialintelligence

The system, called iBorderCtrl, analyzed facial movements to attempt to spot signs a person was lying to a border agent. The trial was propelled by nearly $5 million in European Union research funding, and almost 20 years of research at Manchester Metropolitan University, in the UK. This content can also be viewed on the site it originates from. Polygraphs and other technologies built to detect lies from physical attributes have been widely declared unreliable by psychologists. Soon, errors were reported from iBorderCtrl, too.

The Fight Over Which Uses of AI Europe Should Outlaw

WIRED

The system, called iBorderCtrl, analyzed facial movements to attempt to spot signs a person was lying to a border agent. The trial was propelled by nearly $5 million in European Union research funding, and almost 20 years of research at Manchester Metropolitan University, in the UK. Polygraphs and other technologies built to detect lies from physical attributes have been widely declared unreliable by psychologists. Soon, errors were reported from iBorderCtrl, too. Media reports indicated that its lie-prediction algorithm didn't work, and the project's own website acknowledged that the technology "may imply risks for fundamental human rights."


NATO summit will test Biden's resolve to defeat Putin and pressure Erdogan

FOX News

Nile Gardiner of the Heritage Foundation weighs in on the progression of the Russia-Ukraine conflict as Biden faces criticism at the G7 Summit on'Fox News Live.' JERUSALEM, Israel – President Biden's appearance at the NATO summit in Madrid on Tuesday presents the most serious test for his administration's effort to repair a fractured military alliance and roll back Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The United States government is widely viewed as the lead partner of the world's most powerful military body -- the 30-member North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Marshall Billingslea, a former NATO Assistant Secretary General, told Fox News Digital, "This NATO Summit is a crucial test for Biden's leadership. First, and most importantly, he must clear the way for Finnish and Swedish membership by brokering a deal with Turkey. Second, he has to get countries to deliver significant additional heavy weapons to Ukraine, particularly Germany, who has largely paid only lip-service to military aid."


Artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Deep learning[133] uses several layers of neurons between the network's inputs and outputs. The multiple layers can progressively extract higher-level features from the raw input. For example, in image processing, lower layers may identify edges, while higher layers may identify the concepts relevant to a human such as digits or letters or faces.[134] Deep learning has drastically improved the performance of programs in many important subfields of artificial intelligence, including computer vision, speech recognition, image classification[135] and others. Deep learning often uses convolutional neural networks for many or all of its layers.


Legal regulation of artificial intelligence in Kazakhstan and abroad

#artificialintelligence

In our understanding, the question of who owns intellectual property rights on AI-related works is also important when determining who is liable for AI-caused harm. For that reason, further development of legislation in that direction is expected. As we mentioned before, one of the main characteristics of AI is the use (collection, analysis) of data. Personal data is included in this. Some experts have opined that AI systems can develop more quickly in jurisdictions where there is less regulation on the use and protection of personal data--or where it is not regulated at all. This is related to the fact that AI needs to use data to achieve the established tasks. The EU is the realm of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which aims to protect personal data against illegal use. The EU, in light of the GDPR, has already prepared a list of prohibited practices of AI.


From the invasion of Ukraine to weapons procurement: the war games seeking solutions to real-life conflicts

The Guardian

On the second floor of the stately King's College London building on the Strand, Vladimir Putin, Emmanuel Macron, Olaf Scholz and Joe Biden are sitting around a table studying a map of Ukraine. They are here to negotiate the future of the country, but they all have ulterior objectives too. Germany wants to ensure the safe transit of refugees; the US wants Russia to cease its disinformation campaign; France wants trade; and Russia needs dozens of sanctions to be lifted. But nobody is giving anything away. It's tense as hell and the clock is ticking.

Artificial Intelligence is the Future of Deterrence

#artificialintelligence

Russia's war in Ukraine is becoming a testing ground for loitering ammunition. How is artificial intelligence changing the future of military deterrence? The Russian attack on Ukraine shows that wars of conquest are not an artifact of the past. This reversion to an outdated notion of territorial integrity of states, visible since 2014 at the latest, puts the concept of deterrence back on the political agenda of many democracies. The new German government now wants to make the contribution to NATO that the then U.S. President Donald Trump, for example, demanded with media attention a few years ago.


As diplomacy hopes dim, U.S. marshals allies to furnish long-term military aid to Ukraine

The Japan Times

RAMSTEIN AIR BASE, Germany – The United States marshaled 40 allies on Tuesday to furnish Ukraine with long-term military aid in what could become a protracted battle against the Russian invasion, and Germany said it would send dozens of armored anti-aircraft vehicles. It was a major policy shift for a country that had wavered over fear of provoking Russia. The announcement by Germany, Europe's biggest economy and one of Russia's most important Western trading partners, was among many signals on Tuesday pointing to further escalation in the war and disappointment for diplomacy. Germany's shift on weapons also was seen as a strong affirmation of a toughened message by the administration of U.S. President Joe Biden, which has said it wants to see Russia not only defeated in Ukraine but seriously weakened from the conflict that Russian President Vladimir Putin began two months ago. The increasing flow of Western weapons into Ukraine -- including howitzers, armed drones, tanks and ammunition -- also amounted to another sign that a war Putin had expected would divide his Western adversaries had instead drawn them much closer together.
