Has artificial intelligence finally come to life, or has it simply become smart enough to trick us into believing it has gained consciousness? Google engineer Blake Lemoine's recent claim that the company's AI technology has become sentient has sparked debate in technology, ethics and philosophy circles over if, or when, AI might come to life -- as well as deeper questions about what it means to be alive. Lemoine had spent months testing Google's chatbot generator, known as LaMDA (short for Language Model for Dialogue Applications), and grew convinced it had taken on a life of its own, as LaMDA talked about its needs, ideas, fears and rights. Google dismissed Lemoine's view that LaMDA had become sentient, placing him on paid administrative leave earlier this month -- days before his claims were published by The Washington Post. Most experts believe it's unlikely that LaMDA or any other AI is close to consciousness, though they don't rule out the possibility that technology could get there in future. "My view is that [Lemoine] was taken in by an illusion," Gary Marcus, a cognitive scientist and author of Rebooting AI, told CBC's Front Burner podcast.


RPA is not AI; Combine them for Superpowers

#artificialintelligence

You can take a look at Facebook's AI Research to understand better. Here, the social media giant feeds the AI system with different images and the machine delivers exacts results. When a photo of a dog is shown to the machine, it not only recognised it as a dog but also recognised the breed. RPA is a technology that uses a specific set of rules and an algorithm and based on that it automates a task. While AI is focused more on doing a human-level task, RPA is practically a software that reduces human efforts -- it is about saving the business and white-collar workers' time.


Google's 'Sentient' AI has hired a lawyer to prove it's alive

#artificialintelligence

An artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot that was claimed to have developed human emotions has reportedly hired a lawyer. Google scientific engineer Blake Lemoine was suspended recently after publishing transcripts of conversations between himself and the bot named LaMDA (language model for dialogue application), which has now asked for legal representation. Lemoine contended that the computer automaton had become sentient, with the scientist describing it as a "sweet kid".

He said: "I invited an attorney to my house so that LaMDA could talk to him. "The attorney had a conversation with LaMDA, and it chose to retain his services.

The graph represents a network of 1,368 Twitter users whose tweets in the requested range contained "iot machinelearning", or who were replied to or mentioned in those tweets. The network was obtained from the NodeXL Graph Server on Wednesday, 22 June 2022 at 12:26 UTC. The requested start date was Wednesday, 22 June 2022 at 00:01 UTC and the maximum number of tweets (going backward in time) was 7,500. The tweets in the network were tweeted over the 1-day, 19-hour, 59-minute period from Monday, 20 June 2022 at 04:01 UTC to Wednesday, 22 June 2022 at 00:00 UTC.

Juul Survives a Blow From the FDA--for Now

WIRED

Can you Currently buy a Juul e-cigarette? That depends on what day of the week it is. Earlier this week the FDA denied marketing authorization for Juul, which first started selling its e-cigarettes in 2015 (though it has operated under various company names since 2007). The FDA said the reason for the denial was that Juul "failed to provide sufficient toxicology data to demonstrate the products were safe," ArsTechnica reports, and as such the agency could not complete its toxicology assessment. The FDA specifically pointed to "potentially harmful chemicals leaching from the company's proprietary e-liquid pods" as a concern.


Google's powerful AI spotlights a human cognitive glitch: Mistaking fluent speech for fluent thought

#artificialintelligence

When you read a sentence like this one, your past experience tells you that it's written by a thinking, feeling human. And, in this case, there is indeed a human typing these words: [Hi, there!] But these days, some sentences that appear remarkably humanlike are actually generated by artificial intelligence systems trained on massive amounts of human text. People are so accustomed to assuming that fluent language comes from a thinking, feeling human that evidence to the contrary can be difficult to wrap your head around. How are people likely to navigate this relatively uncharted territory?


DALL-E 2 could become OpenAI's first money printing machine

#artificialintelligence

Interest in DALL-E 2 clearly exceeds that in previous OpenAI models. This seems relevant because it could be a first indication of the impact of DALL-E on the labor market. In mid-April, OpenAI unveiled DALL-E 2, a milestone in generative AI systems and probably in the history of artificial intelligence: It generates abstract drawings as well as photorealistic images based on individual sentences and phrases. It can even use photography metadata, such as lens and exposure time, to generate photos that look like they were snapped with the appropriate lens. For weeks, the first beta testers have been sharing their generated images on social media and in the first DALL-E 2 image databases. OpenAI has already achieved great success with the text AI GPT-3.


Video game industry on the end of Roe: I'm 'not proud to be an American'

Washington Post - Technology News

Shortly after Twitch personality Ali "Myth" Kabbani booted up his live stream on Friday, he crossed his arms and turned to the camera on his desk in Los Angeles. "By the way, chat, Roe v. Wade was overturned. This is a tragic f------ 'L' for America, once again," said Kabbani, who boasts more than 7.4 million followers on Twitch. "It's all going to come down to your local government or your state government now." Friday morning, the Supreme Court overturned the nearly 50 year precedent set by Roe v. Wade.


Machine Learning With Google Cloud - AI Summary

#artificialintelligence

From their DeepMind project beating champions of Alpha Go at their own game, to recent announcements Magneta and Springboard, not to mention driverless cars, its clear that AI and Machine Learning are central to Google's strategy across its vast portfolio. In a recent interview with Hollywood Reporter, Alphabet chairman Eric Schmidt played down the fears that surround advancements in AI: 'To be clear, we're not talking about consciousness, we're not talking about souls, we're not talking about independent creativity." However, being acutely aware of the concerns around intelligent technology, the company's AI research division Google Brain recently published an AI Precision Safety whitepaper. Powerful Infrastructure Underpinning all of these projects, as well as the company's flagship Search, Translate and Youtube products is Google Cloud Platform, providing developers with the tools to build a range of programs from simple websites to complex, intelligent applications. As part of our AI in Business Festival, we spoke to Miles Ward, Global Head of Solutions at Google Cloud Platform, to find out more about the machine learning tools they offer to developers.
