Podcast Interview with Scott Amyx on Implications of Exponential Technologies

#artificialintelligence

The'Internet of Things' is a name given to exponential technologies encompassing our physical devices, vehicles, home appliances and increasingly normal everyday objects such as water bottles, that can store and exchange data. For consumers, they are often fearful of these advances and question how secure their personal data is. To overcome this issue, consumers must self-educate about personal security, moving away from a naive perspective and become mature, responsible agents when operating these data-storing devices. They discuss the implications of the Internet of Things (IoT) and what the future holds – not just for businesses but also consumers. 'Artificial Intelligence' has materialised much faster than leading researchers and security professionals in the field expected, and the future of it remains unknown.


A Trove of Facebook Data Is a Spammer's Dream and Your Nightmare

WIRED

When Facebook announced at the end of September that it had suffered a data breach that ultimately affected 30 million accounts, it seemed, perhaps, like the work of sophisticated nation state hackers. But a new report from The Wall Street Journal suggests spammers as the culprit instead. That shouldn't make you feel that much better, though, given just how much damage criminals can do with the kind of information stolen from Facebook. It was, after all, a lot. The sophisticated daisy chain attack that the hackers pulled off garnered the names, phone numbers, and email of 15 million Facebook users.

Cal student Boris Yue was moving his way among fellow job-seekers to meet recruiters. But he wasn't worried about competition. The job outlook for people with computer skills is generally good, Yue is in an even more rarified category: he is studying artificial intelligence.


Liquid state machine - Wikipedia

#artificialintelligence

A liquid state machine (LSM) is a particular kind of spiking neural network. An LSM consists of a large collection of units (called nodes, or neurons). Each node receives time varying input from external sources (the inputs) as well as from other nodes. Nodes are randomly connected to each other. The recurrent nature of the connections turns the time varying input into a spatio-temporal pattern of activations in the network nodes.


An Eye For AI: Software Provides An Easier Path For Power Line Safety Inspections - GE Reports

In 2003, Mother Nature turned off the lights on the East Coast. The reason: a short circuit a hot summer day caused on by a chance encounter between an overgrown tree branch and a sagging power line. The problem quickly cascaded through the system, triggering the biggest blackout in North American history. The outage left 50 million people in the U.S. and Canada without power and by some estimates cost more than $6 billion. But the truth is, most people don't give much thought to our electrical grid until something goes wrong.


Do robots dream of Prada? How artificial intelligence is reprogramming fashion

#artificialintelligence

Who do you turn to when you can't decide what to wear? But soon, perhaps, it will be none of the above. Instead, you will try on an outfit, turn to a wall-mounted, five megapixel camera with front lighting and dual-antennae wifi connectivity, ask, "Alexa, how do I look?" and within a few seconds the 1.6 watt speaker will deliver the data-driven, empirically-founded assessment. The Echo Look is Amazon's first "style assistant", recently rolled out across the US after an invite-only soft launch. No UK launch date is set, but the technology – which analyses your outfit through a combination of algorithms and (human) "fashion specialists" – is set to revolutionise what technology means to style.
