What Is It Like to Be a Robot? – Rodney Brooks

#artificialintelligence

This is the first post in an intended series on what is the current state of Artificial Intelligence capabilities, and what we can expect in the relative short term. I will be at odds with the more outlandish claims that are circulating in the press, and amongst what I consider an alarmist group that includes people in the AI field and outside of it. In this post I start to introduce some of the key components of my future arguments, as well as show how different any AI system might be from us humans. Some may recognize the title of this post as an homage to the 1974 paper by Thomas Nagel, "What Is It Like to Be a Bat?". Two more recent books, one from 2009 by Alexandra Horowitz on dogs, and one from 2016 by Peter Godfrey-Smith on octopuses also pay homage to Nagel's paper each with a section of a chapter titled "What it is like", and "What It's Like", respectively, giving affirmative responses to their own questions about what is it like to be a dog, or an octopus.


You can nab a limited-edition Billie Eilish Echo Studio for $230

Engadget

After playing through some Billie Eilish tracks in Beat Saber, soon you'll also be able to kick back and listen to a limited-edition Echo Studio sporting the cover of her latest album, "Happier Than Ever." Beyond the beige fabric and Eilish's visage, the $230 speaker is no different than the standard $200 Echo Studio. That's a shame if you were hoping for some sort of upgrade, but if it's any consolation, we adored the Echo Studio's beefy hardware when it launched two years ago. It's one of the few smart speakers built for 3D Audio, and it has more than enough power to blast all of your favorite tunes. The Billie Eilish Limited-Edition Echo Studio also comes with a six-month subscription to Amazon Music, typically a $48 value.

Alexa devices don't support 911 calls otherwise, but you can set up an emergency contact.

iOS 15 bug lets anyone bypass locked iPhone to access Notes app

Mashable

Apple released iOS 15 on Monday and there's already a vulnerability making the rounds. Security researcher Jose Rodriguez published a video Monday detailing how he was able to bypass the lock screen on an iPhone with iOS 15 (and iOS 14.8) in order to access the Notes app. The vulnerability requires an attacker to have physical access to the targeted device. In the video, with his iPhone locked, Rodriguez asks Siri to activate VoiceOver, a feature that audibly describes what's on the screen. He then pulls down the Control Center and taps Instant Notes, which allows users to quickly jot down a note without unlocking the iPhone.


Are your devices always all ears?

#artificialintelligence

How many times has this happened that you would've had a conversation about this particular thing and the next thing you know is all your social media apps and web browsers are displaying advertisements related to it. It almost feels like a nexus. It's not even an exaggeration when I say sometimes, I am shown ads of things I've just thought about in my head. The main question that pops up is whether our so very smartphones are listening to us? The vulnerability begins with voice assistants always having their ear at us with the "always-on" feature to pick up words like "Hello Siri" or "Alexa" or "Ok Google".

#artificialintelligence

Nate and his teams specialize in custom software development, web design and digital marketing. Artificial intelligence (AI) conjures a lot of unique imagery depending on your background and how much exposure to the topic you've had. For some people, AI looks and feels like something out of The Terminator or 2001: A Space Odyssey -- an oppressive, human-like intelligence that poses an existential threat. To some, AI is simply a fancy name for digital assistants like Siri or Cortana. Of course, if you have a lot of development experience, you know the line between AI and any other kind of computer programming is blurry and that in some ways, a basic pocket calculator could be considered AI.
