More reporting links Clearview AI to Trump-aligned racists, neo-Nazis, and alt-right trolls

A Huffington Post investigation out today lays out even more evidence of facial surveillance tech company Clearview AI's ties to the alt-right. Clearview AI has alarmed privacy experts, and has hired several far-right employees, a HuffPost investigation found. My latest investigation is about Clearview AI, a secretive facial recognition company. Lots of privacy concerns. Even scarier: Clearview has ties to the alt-right and even had far-right extremists working for it until I reached out t...

Why AI startups’ economics will likely improve over time

Hello and welcome back to our regular morning look at private companies, public markets and the gray space in between. If you can recall February, we dug into the question of AI startup gross margins. Venture shop a16z had published an interesting blog on the subject, arguing that it may be the case that AI-focused startups will enjoy strong gross margins, but perhaps not as strong as those posted by SaaS companies. Modern software startups (SaaS companies) have some of the highest gross margins...

Flagship Adds $1.1B for New Meds, More AI, & “Health Security”

Flagship Pioneering founder and CEO Noubar Afeyan didn’t know a global pandemic was in the cards for 2020 when he and his team laid out three new thematic areas of focus for the company last fall.One proved eerily prescient: The notion of “health security,” or the development of new products and therapies to treat health concerns before they arise or escalate. On Thursday the Cambridge, MA-based venture capital firm, best known for starting and spinning out biotechs, announced it had added $1.1...

An AI can read words in brain signals

Participants' neural activity is collected as they speak 50 sentences.A machine-learning algorithm develops a prediction of what the collected data means.The system's accuracy varies, but the results are promising. It's just a start, but it's pretty exciting: a system that translates brain activity into text. For those unable to physically speak, such as people with locked-in syndrome for example, this would be a life-changer.Right now, it's a bit like seeing through a heavy fog, but researcher...

A new AI passes the smell test almost 100% of the time

Two researchers have created an algorithm that can accurately identify 10 different smells.The AI algorithm runs on an Intel chip that has 130,000 silicon "neurons."The natural mammalian olfactory bulb grows new neurons even in adults. Our noses are busy beasts. At any given moment, multiple smells are competing for our attention, and somehow the brain can tell when it's smelling an orange even against a backdrop of other scents, say perfume or soap. The brain's olfactory bulb has hundreds of r...
