On Tuesday, lawmakers, A.I. experts, and the guy chiefly responsible for ChatGPT gathered in the same room to swap analogies for just how dramatically A.I. is about to change our lives. The invention of the internet, the cell phone, and airplanes all made the list. For a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing ostensibly concerned with the dangers A.I. might pose to the world, everyone seemed to get along quite well. At one point Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana asked Sam Altman, the CEO of ChatGPT maker OpenAI, if he could recommend some people to oversee a new agency to oversee A.I.--that is, to pick his own regulators. Then again, Altman was doing an exceptional job projecting a self-critical persona.
Fox News correspondent Matt Finn has the latest on the impact of AI technology that some say could outpace humans on'Special Report.' Law enforcement's use of artifical intelligence-driven facial recognition puts everyone into what one expert called a "perpetual police line-up," and studies show it's more likely the finger will be pointed at the wrong person if they're Black or Asian. "Whenever they have a photo of a suspect, they will compare it to your face," said Matthew Guariglia, from the nonprofit digital rights group Electronic Frontier Foundation, told the BBC. The technology's use in police investigations boomed in recent years, particularly after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Twenty out of 42 federal agencies that were surveyed by the Government Accountability Office in 2021 reported they use facial recognition in criminal investigations.
'OFFENSIVE' – A troubling societal issue called transableism, in which a person "chooses" to identify as handicapped, is attracting attention. TERRIFYING TANDEM OF TECH – Take a look at 10 ways big government uses AI to create the totalitarian society as described in George Orwell's classic, "1984." KIRK CAMERON CRIES – Actor-writer Kirk Cameron was brought to "tears of hope" at a public library book event. Kirk Cameron, author of "As You Grow," an illustrated children's book that shares biblical values, has been holding family-focused events in public libraries across America -- and on April 29, he "got emotional" as a crowd began singing songs of worship to God. He's shown in New Jersey.
Graphical models with latent count variables arise in a number of fields. Standard exact inference techniques such as variable elimination and belief propagation do not apply to these models because the latent variables have countably infinite support. As a result, approximations such as truncation or MCMC are employed. We present the first exact inference algorithms for a class of models with latent count variables by developing a novel representation of countably infinite factors as probability generating functions, and then performing variable elimination with generating functions. Our approach is exact, runs in pseudo-polynomial time, and is much faster than existing approximate techniques. It leads to better parameter estimates for problems in population ecology by avoiding error introduced by approximate likelihood computations.

The announcement coincides with the USCAP 112th Annual Meeting held March 11-16 at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. "We are delighted to further extend our partnership in this emerging era of personalized medicine." The increasing prevalence of chronic conditions is predicted to intensify the urgency of pathologists seeking to adopt innovative digital pathology solutions to improve existing patient diagnostic imaging methods and reduce the high cost associated with traditional diagnostics. Technological advances in the past decade and the numerous benefits of digital pathology are driving the practice to become widely adopted. Agilent and Visiopharm have collaborated since 2020, developing an integrated solution comprising Visiopharm's portfolio of leading artificial intelligence (AI)-driven precision pathology software and Agilent's automated pathology staining solutions.
Researchers at the University of New Orleans want to use artificial intelligence to evaluate and detect potential deficiencies in the United States' floodwater control structures. The proposal includes the creation of an automated program using unmanned aerial system imagery and other sensory data to assess the integrity and stability of the nation's flood control systems. The Joseph Canizaro and James Livingston Gulf States Center for Environmental Informatics (GulfSCEI, pronounced Gulfsea) at the University of New Orleans has secured a one-year contract worth $1.25 million from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) for the research. The research will be performed jointly with USACE's domain experts. As part of its national flood risk management plan, the USACE has planned, designed and constructed over 700 dam and reservoir projects and more than 13,500 miles of federally authorized levees and floodwalls.
Artificial intelligence has become a prominent issue in education circles after the unveiling of ChatGPT, a large-scale learning model that scours the internet for information it can use to produce text in a conversational format. Many academics have raised concerns that students will use ChatGPT or similar tools to generate written assignments instead of doing the work themselves. In February, the university posted an explainer on its website describing for faculty what ChatGPT and other artificial intelligence tools are and what their limitations can be. "You've likely seen a lot of panic and concerns about how to best adapt," the explainer says. "But as with any technology, this is an ideal opportunity to reflect on our current teaching practices, experiment with new opportunities, and brainstorm ways they could be utilized effectively in a classroom." It is unclear how much Dunne made from her TikTok post about Caktus AI, but the junior gymnast from Hillsdale, New Jersey has captured college athletics' new world of name, image and likeness (NIL) profits unlike any other.
With fewer officers on the streets, a Louisiana nonprofit is using security cameras to put more eyes on high-crime areas. NEW ORLEANS – In a two-story building at the University of New Orleans, over 10,000 video feeds from communities across the country are streaming at the speed of light. A small staff is watching these feeds, studying gang members and tracking drug deals in small towns and major cities. It's called Project NOLA, the largest network of community crime cameras in the U.S., and the only nonprofit in the security industry. "Just like the Red Cross and CrimeStoppers, we are in the business of helping people," said Executive Director Bryan Lagarde.
On a recent episode of Dr. Phil, the host spoke with some of Jeffrey Dahmer's victims and showed them an interview he filmed with the father of one of America's most infamous serial killers. A 21-year-old Louisiana man has been sentenced to 45 years in prison after plotting a Jeffrey Dahmer-like scheme to meet men on the gay dating app Grindr and kill them, according to federal officials. Chance Seneca of Lafayette Parish targeted one particular victim, as well as other gay men, through the app in 2020 because of their sexual orientation and gender, the Justice Department said. "The facts of this case are truly shocking, and the defendant's decision to specifically target gay men is a disturbing reminder of the unique prejudices and dangers facing the LGBTQ community today," Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division said in a Wednesday statement. Clarke continued: "The internet should be accessible and safe for all Americans, regardless of their gender or sexual orientation. We will continue to identify and intercept the predators who weaponize online platforms to target LGBTQ victims and carry out acts of violence and hate."
