It's Time to Recalibrate Our Expectations of Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

I can still remember the first time I used Alexa. It's crystal clear in my head: I said, "Alexa, play Take On Me and a few seconds later A-ha's synthy drums kicked in. It was one of the few times in my life that artificial intelligence has left me speechless. It was a real-world version of the technology I grew up seeing in countless science fiction movies and TV shows. Giving that command, I felt like Captain Kirk talking to the computers on the USS Enterprise. I recall wondering where the technology would be in another five or 10 years -- which is roughly where we are right now.

Engadget

One of the biggest challenges in filming the original Top Gun was keeping all of the actors playing pilots from constantly vomiting in the cockpit. Any sequel to that '80s classic would have to be even more realistic, since production eventually moved to a soundstage. The Ringer explains how GoPro footage from real Navy pilots was the initial inspiration for the new movie, how custom-built IMAX gear helped capture the angles from real F-18s and how Tom Cruise put the cast through intense training to prepare. Over 50 countries are trying to make sure data created by their citizens, governments and industries stays within their borders -- or at least stored in accordance with their laws. The quest for so-called "digital sovereignty" could impact services we use daily or some of the features they currently offer.


The Weirdest Thing on Netflix

Sign up to receive the Future Tense newsletter every other Saturday. When my husband asked me if I wanted to try the "cat trivia game" on Netflix, I thought it was going to be some sort of quiz about felines. I like cats, so I said sure. The "cat trivia game," it turns out, is Cat Burglar, which Netflix calls an "edgy, over-the-top, interactive trivia toon." It debuted in February and comes from the makers of Black Mirror.

Tom Cruise's Existential Need for Speed

The New Yorker

On July 3rd, Tom Cruise will be sixty years old. The fact that he does not look it, at all, even in IMAX closeups so tight you can study the grain of his tooth enamel, adds a note of cognitive dissonance to "Top Gun: Maverick," the long-aborning sequel in which he's called back to mentor a squad of younger stick-jockeys who address him as Pops and Old-Timer until he wins their respect in the air. Even for a physical performer like Cruise, sixty is no longer an expiration date. Mick Jagger blew by that milestone in 2003, as did Sylvester Stallone in 2006, and, thanks presumably to healthy habits and/or medical technology dreamt of only by science fiction, they're both still out there, doing a version of the kind of thing they've always done. But the level of performance expected of a Rolling Stone or an Expendable is one thing, and the work that Tom Cruise appears to demand of himself is something else entirely.


How to Test a Recommender System - neptune.ai

#artificialintelligence

Recommender systems fundamentally address the question – What do people want? Although it is an extensive question, in the context of a consumer application like e-commerce, the answer could be to serve the best products in terms of price and quality for a consumer. For a news aggregator website, it could be to show reliable and relevant content. In a case where a user would have to look through thousands or millions of items to find what they are looking for, a recommendation engine is indispensable. The engine filters over 3,000 titles at a time using 1,300 recommendation clusters based on user preferences. It is so accurate that personalised recommendations from the engine drive 80% of Netflix viewer activity. However, building and evaluating a recommender system is very different compared to a single ML model regarding design decisions, engineering, and metrics. In this article, we will focus on testing a recommendation system. The second and third require a lot of user-item interaction data. If that is not available, one might start with the first type of recommender system.
