GPT-2 was a great success. OpenAI didn't want to publish the most enormous and mightiest version, with 1.5B parameters. At least, claiming that they were afraid of misusing it for less ethical purposes. Lately, they claimed that they didn't found shreds of evidence of such. All of this is legit, considering the volume of the false "news" generated using it. And the truth is that it can be very successful in developing false news/stories.
The world of today is a trying place. Sometimes you just want an escape hatch that lets you live inside another take on our present or future. That's what makes good science fiction so alluring. All the Amazon Prime subscribers out there should know: You have a boatload of options to choose from in the online retailer's streaming library. There's a little something for fans of any style of sci-fi you could imagine, from comedy to horror to drama to just plain "this is weird AF." Here's a selection of some of our favorites that you can find and fire up right now.
Tired of all those "JOIN" in SQL? Did you have a headache every time you need to modify a schema in a relational database? If either answer is "Yes", then you should give graph database such as Neo4j a try. Nodes are connected via edges and they both have properties. We can retrieve and aggregate data with queries. Because their logics and semantics are closer to the way that our minds model the real world, graph databases are easy to learn.
When people first get into contact with artificial intelligence, they tend to focus on algorithms. How they recognize pictures of cats and dogs, learn to play chess, or compose music and write poetry amaze people because it feels like magic. There are many kinds of algorithms, but most newsworthy milestones are generated by just one type -- that the media loves so much -- neural networks. People care about what deep neural networks are capable of, but they forget these "black-box" models are nothing more than empty casings without the large datasets that train them into becoming powerful predictors and classifiers. Practice makes perfect and it's no different for deep neural nets.
The BDN Opinion section operates independently and does not set newsroom policies or contribute to reporting or editing articles elsewhere in the newspaper or on bangordailynews.com. Keith E. Sonderling is a commissioner on the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.The views here are the author's own and should not be attributed to the EEOC or any other member of the commission. With 86 percent of major U.S. corporations predicting that artificial intelligence will become a "mainstream technology" at their company this year, management-by-algorithm is no longer the stuff of science fiction. AI has already transformed the way workers are recruited, hired, trained, evaluated and even fired. One recent study found that 83 percent of human resources leaders rely in some form on technology in employment decision-making.
DJI's upcoming Mavic 3 Pro drone may be a big upgrade over the last model, according to leaks from DroneDJ and Jasper Ellens seen by The Verge. It may have a significantly longer flight time along with not just one, but two cameras, including a telephoto model and one with a larger Four Thirds sensor. If accurate, the Mavic 3 would be highly desirable for cinematographers and aerial photographers when it arrives, reportedly later this year. Where the Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom make you choose between a larger sensor or a 24-48mm equivalent zoom, the new model will offer both on one drone. It reportedly comes with two separate cameras, including a 20-megapixel, 24mm f/2.8-f/11 primary camera with a Four Thirds sensor, along with a 12-megapixel, 1/2-inch sensor secondary camera with a 160mm-equivalent telephoto lens.
