Tech employees on visas face layoffs, instability, and the threat of deportation amid industry upheaval

Mashable

Employee layoffs at some of the world's biggest tech giants are churning up a flooded and volatile market. And, according to new reported estimates, that impact may be disproportionately devastating to a single population: Indian IT employees. Reported by financial news site Mint, a number of "industry insiders" estimate that between 30 and 40 percent of IT layoffs(Opens in a new window) affected employees on temporary work status from India. Given the nationwide estimate of 200,000 IT employees impacted directly by layoffs since November, this means potentially 80,000 people now face the task of finding stable work within 60 days before being forced to go back to their countries of origin. Most of these employees, including a huge swath of tech workers from China(Opens in a new window), are on non-immigrant work visas like the H-1B, a temporary three-year visa with an option for extension.

6 scary things ChatGPT has been used for already

Mashable

ChatGPT is already causing problems. The text generator from Open AI is imperfect at creating factually accurate or interesting writing, but it can create relatively appropriate text for just about any prompt in no time at all. And even with a bevy of built-in filters, that can be pretty dangerous as well. Perhaps unsurprisingly, people have already found uses for the tool that are less than ideal. Anything that can create content out of whole cloth can likely create something dangerous.


Want another great video game adaptation like 'The Last of Us'? Watch 'Arcane.'

Mashable

HBO's adaptation of The Last of Us has received much well-deserved praise since its premiere, including being lauded as the series to break the so-called "video game curse."(Opens in a new window) While some game adaptations have deserved their critical drubbings, recent efforts like Werewolves Within and Castlevania have proven successful and shouldn't be overlooked. My favorite among these newer adaptations is the stellar Arcane, a 2021 animated series that loosely adapts the massively popular game League of Legends. Arcane takes existing characters and lore from the game and blends them with new elements to create a stunningly executed story. You don't actually need to be familiar with League to understand and love Arcane; everything I know about League, I learned from this show. With its gorgeous animation, rich steampunk world, and fascinating characters, Arcane packs a gloriously mean punch.

Possibility to detect early signs of Alzheimer's with ChatGPT - TWB

#artificialintelligence

One day, doctors might be able to use the artificial intelligence algorithms underlying ChatGPT, a chatbot program that has gained notoriety for its capacity to provide human-like written responses to some of the most inventive questions. The GPT-3 algorithm from OpenAI can recognize cues from spontaneous speech that are 80% accurate in predicting the early stages of dementia, according to research from Drexel University's School of Biomedical Engineering, Science, and Health Systems. A thorough assessment of medical history and a battery of physical and neurological examinations and tests are usually performed as part of the standard procedure for diagnosing Alzheimer's disease today. While there is still no cure for the illness, early detection can provide patients with more therapeutic and support choices. Researchers have been focusing on programs that can pick up on subtle clues, such as hesitation, making grammar and pronunciation mistakes, and forgetting the meaning of words, as a quick test that could indicate whether or not a patient should undergo a full examination.
