If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …
The probe into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput seemingly took a diversion when a drug angle came to light. However, a new report doing the rounds has a friend of the late actor denying claims that Rajput was consuming drugs. In an interview on Republic TV, Denmark-based man claiming to be a friend of the actor, revealed that he met Sushant at a party and the two hit it off, talking about technology, coding and artificial intelligence. He claimed that even though they were at the party, Sushant "wasn't interested in drinking" and exressed his doubts about the actor consuming drugs.

Data security is currently more essential than any other time in recent memory. The present cybersecurity threats are unimaginably smart and advanced. Security experts face an every day fight to identify and assess new dangers, identify possible mitigation measures, and find some solution for the residual risk. This upcoming age of cybersecurity threats requires agile and smart projects that can quickly adjust to new and unexpected attacks. AI and machine learning's ability to address this difficulty is perceived by cybersecurity experts, most of whom trust it is a key to the eventual future of cybersecurity The utilization of AI systems, in the realm of cybersecurity, can have three kinds of impact, it is constantly expressed in the work: «AI can: grow cyber threats (amount); change the run of the mill character of these dangers (quality); and present new and obscure dangers (quantity and quality).
The moon landing is an iconic moment in human history but it's easy to forget 51 years later how risky it was. In 1969, there was a very real chance the Apollo 11 mission could have gone horribly wrong and over 600 million people could have witnessed it unfold on their television sets. If that did happen, the broadcasts would have switched to a solemn US President Richard Nixon, who would have addressed the nation with a speech titled "In Event of Moon Disaster". As far as political speeches go, it's a moving oration. "Fate has ordained that the men who went to the moon to explore in peace will stay on the moon to rest in peace," it begins.
With No Time to Die all set to be Daniel Craig's last performance as the famous MI6 agent, fans are wondering who will be next to take up the martini-swigging mantle. Well, according to the first ever AI-assisted casting programme, The Witcher and Justice League star, Henry Cavill, is the right man to be the next James Bond. The AI-assisted programme compared different actor's attributes against Bond's attributes in order to best assess who would be the perfect choice to follow in Craig's footsteps. Cavill came out ahead, with The Hobbit star Richard Armitage just behind, followed by Idris Elba. This was then expanded to include international stars and resulted in The Boys and Dredd actor Karl Urban topping the list with a whopping 96.7%, putting him ahead of even Henry Cavill.
There is nothing more agonizing than starting something on Netflix and realizing 20 minutes in that you aren't interested. In this project, I tried taking matters into my own hands by calculating a probability that I will finish a show given certain show characteristics. Being able to sleep at 2am and roll out of bed at 9am for work hasn't been great for my productivity from an active standpoint. Once upon a time, I actually enjoyed walking 30 minutes to the Caltrain station and back every weekday. The only consolation for my slow descend into complete and utter languidness is how productive I have been pushing through Netflix originals. A combination of having nothing left to watch and deciding to be slightly more productive with my time encouraged me to try my hand at using neural networks to predict what I should watch next.
It's Josh Milligan from Dread Central your host for another episode of Dissecting Horror a virtual panel series made to approximate the film festival or convention experience. Yeah, a little technical hiccup there one that I was warned about so yeah. We've got the cast and creators of artificial and interactive sci-fi series. I'm still wrapping my brain around it focuses on an artificial being artificial intelligence and it explores. Lot of the issues that have to do with humanity and technology, and some shows we've seen like Black mirror another films that blur the line between horror and Sci-fi. Artificial, however, is unlike anything I've seen before and even though it was launched a couple of years ago, it's almost perfectly made for the current time that we're living in and you'll see what I'm talking about because we're gonna show you a preview clip. Before we do that, I want to let you know who I've got here um on the panel with me uh Bernie Sue is the co creator and executive producer show runner director and head writer How you doing buddy Hi, thanks for having us. I can't wait to dive in and uh tell our friends what it's all about. Um you know we're also on the.
A pro-China propaganda campaign that's been bashing the US on social media created fake followers with the help of AI-generated images. Since June, the campaign has been posting English-language videos critical of the Trump administration on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, according to research company Graphika, which has been tracking the group's activities. Graphika dubs the campaign "Spamouflage Dragon." And like other propaganda activities, the pro-China group uses fake accounts to share and post comments on its content to help it gain wider circulation. However, Graphika noticed something odd with the profile photos belonging to these fake accounts: In some cases, the headshots appear to be the work of an AI program designed to create artificial human faces. At first glance, the profile photos look legitimate.
Researchers have used machine learning (ML) in recent years to generate highly realistic fake images and videos known as "deepfakes." Artists, pranksters, and many others have subsequently used these techniques to create a growing collection of audio and video depicting high-profile leaders, such as Donald Trump, Barack Obama, and Vladimir Putin, saying things they never did. This trend has driven fears within the national security community that recent advances in ML will enhance the effectiveness of malicious media manipulation efforts like those Russia launched during the 2016 U.S. presidential election. These concerns have drawn attention to the disinformation risks ML poses, but key questions remain unanswered. How rapidly is the technology for synthetic media advancing, and what are reasonable expectations around the commoditization of these tools?
Machine learning is becoming more important in our daily lives. But most of us probably never envisioned a day when it would be important in online dating or the beginning of new relationships. A growing number of video chat services are utilizing machine learning features in interesting ways. MarTech Series published an article last year on the growing relevance of machine learning in video conferencing. The same principles can be just as applicable to video chats with online dating services.
Considering everything else we're seeing from AI, this was just a matter of time. An artificially intelligent robot has been cast as the lead actor in a $70 million movie being made by the same people behind the Oscar-nominated Loving Vincent. Filming with the robot called Erica has already begun in Japan and is expected to wrap up in Europe next year. "Actors involve their own life experiences in the role but Erica has no life experiences," said one of her creators. "We had to simulate her motions and emotions through one-on-one sessions, such as controlling the speed of her movements, talking through her feelings and coaching character development and body language."
