1st European Summer School on Artificial Intelligence (ESSAI) & 20th Advanced Course on Artificial Intelligence (ACAI) , Ljubljana 2023


The European Summer School on Artificial Intelligence (ESSAI) is a direct product of European AI research being increasingly coordinated and scaled up across projects, research organisations and countries. ESSAI's immediate predecessors are the Advanced Course on AI (ACAI), organised since 1985 under the auspices of the European Association for Artificial Intelligence (EurAI), and the TAILOR Summer School on Trustworthy AI organised since 2021 by the European ICT-48 Network of Excellence on Trustworthy AI through Integrating Learning, Optimisation and Reasoning. Last year, these two schools were already co-located in Barcelona with two parallel tracks as well as joint events.

FBI Agents Are Using Face Recognition Without Proper Training


The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has done tens of thousands of face recognition searches using software from outside providers in recent years. Yet only 5 percent of the 200 agents with access to the technology have taken the bureau's three-day training course on how to use it, a report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) this month reveals. The bureau has no policy for face recognition use in place to protect privacy, civil rights, or civil liberties. Lawmakers and others concerned about face recognition have said that adequate training on the technology and how to interpret its output is needed to reduce improper use or errors, although some experts say training can lull law enforcement and the public into thinking face recognition is low risk. Since the false arrest of Robert Williams near Detroit in 2020, multiple instances have surfaced in the US of arrests after a face recognition model wrongly identified a person.

EXCLUSIVE Former Google futurist predicts what classrooms of the future will look like - they include virtual reality lessons and downloadable knowledge

Daily Mail - Science & tech

By 2050, students will download knowledge directly into their brains from AI tutors, with no human teacher present - and receive lessons tailored to their DNA, a futurist has predicted. Virtual reality will be the main mode of learning for many subjects, and the most important subject students will learn will be how to work as a'co-bot' alongside artificial intelligence, said Tracey Follows, a futurist who has worked with clients including Google, Virgin and Telefonica. Follows, who is listed as one of the top female futurists worldwide in Forbes, said that even classrooms might be a thing of the past as students'self teach' with the help of AI'tutors'. Follows produced a white paper on the subject in collaboration with online tutoring service GoStudent, and said that while her predictions may seem out there, they are'not science fiction'. She predicts that new subjects such as interstellar studies and biotech will become popular as humanity moves towards becoming an interplanetary species.

Tech expert says 'existential' fears from AI are overblown, but sees 'very disturbing' workplace threats

FOX News

A bipartisan panel of voters weighed in on the future of artificial intelligence and growing concerns surrounding the potential dangers of the emerging technology. A U.K.-based tech expert said he is not losing sleep at night over the recent growth of artificial intelligence but argued he does have concerns over AI potentially becoming a hellish boss that oversees an employee's every move. Michael Wooldridge is a professor of computer science at the University of Oxford who has been a leading expert on AI for at least 30 years. He spoke with The Guardian this month regarding upcoming lectures he will lead this winter to demystify artificial intelligence, while noting what concerns he does have with the tech. He told the outlet that he does not share the same worries as some AI experts who warn the powerful systems could one day lead to the downfall of humanity.
