The 5 articles you read in AI hell

The devil went down to Silicon Valley; he was looking for a soul to steal. But he ended up taking a consulting gig with Palantir instead. In the meantime, the algorithm’s in charge of punishing the wicked now. And these days the sign above hell’s gates reads “Abandon Open Source,” with an Amazon smile beneath the print. Those condemned to an eternity of pain and suffering in the modern era are now forced to read the same five AI articles over and over. Which kind of sounds like what it’s like to...

Where are all the robotaxis and autonomous cars we were promised?

We’re a couple weeks away from All Hallows Eve and there are plenty of things that go bump in the night for us to fear this year. Things such as dumb cars that can’t figure out how cul-de-sacs work without a human operator. And Tesla FSD’s proclivity towards driving the wrong way down clearly-marked one-way streets, for example. Up front: Rumors of the advent of truly driverless cars have been, for the most part, widely exaggerated. Elon Musk’s now infamous 2019 claim that Tesla would have one m...

Sorry former Pentagon expert, but China is nowhere near winning the AI race

Nicolas Chaillan, the Pentagon’s former Chief Software Officer, is on a whirlwind press tour to drum up as much fervor for his radical assertion that the US has already lost the AI race against China. Speaking to the Financial Times in his first interview after leaving his post at the Pentagon, Chaillan said: We have no competing fighting chance against China in 15 to 20 years. Right now, it’s already a done deal. Chaillan’s departure from the Pentagon was preceded by a “blistering letter” where...

IBM commits high-scale inference platform ModelMesh to open source

IBM today announced it has committed its ModelMesh inference service to open source. This is a big deal for the MLOps and DevOps community, but the implications for the average end-user are also huge. Artificial intelligence is a backbone technology that nearly all enterprises rely on. The majority of our coverage here on Neural tends to discuss the challenges involved in training and developing AI models. But when it comes to deploying AI models so that they can do what they’re supposed to do w...

Classical physics make time travel impossible. But what about ‘timeless’ travel?

A pair of scientists from the UK recently published a pre-print research paper discussing the theory of a universe with no beginning. Imagine it: our universe has always existed. The Big Bang either never happened or it was simply another event in the infinite history of… itself. On the surface it sounds counter-intuitive. According to the researchers, a quantum physics paradigm called a “causal set” structure makes it possible for the universe to exist beyond its perceived origin. Per the duo’s...

Small Business Battles Cyber Threats with AI

Cybercriminals increasingly employ sophisticated tactics in their online disruptions, costing organizations $2.9 million every single minute. Research from RiskIQ also found that major businesses lose an average of $25 per minute because of data breaches alone. According to IBM, it takes 280 days to discover and contain the average cyber-attack, which costs an average of $3.86 million. Nefarious characters behind a keyboard are not the only source of threats complicating cyber security efforts....

Why can’t Google’s algorithms find any good news for queer people?

If you’re interested in reading about the global suffering of queer people I’ve got just the place for you. It’s called “Google News.” Today’s actually an off day for the product. Typically, if you take a gander at the “LGBTQ+” topic in Google News you’ll find that about 90% of the stories surfaced by the platform’s algorithms are negative. But today is “Coming Out Day,” so there’s a handful of non-negative pieces in the feed right now taking up slots that are typically filled with negative ones...

These startups are making the smart cities of the future safer

When you hear the term “smart city” your mind usually jumps to autonomous flying vehicles or drone-based pizza deliveries. But emerging technologies aren’t only being deployed to make our lives easier. There’s also a wave of new startups and scaleups working to make the cities of the future safer. We spoke with four cohorts from this year’s X-Europe smart cities accelerator program to find out more about how tech can be used to tackle both new and old security threats. Faster response times to v...

How consumer-facing ‘AI as a service’ is remaking the world of smart gadgets

Amazon’s Echo Dot is on its fourth generation. And within each of those generations there are myriad iterations and variations on the basic design. And that’s just the Dot. In all, there are dozens of different “Echo” devices. And each one is either a newly-introduced product or an iteration of a previous generation. And there will be more next year and more the year after that. That’s what the status quo looks like in smart gadgets. If you got a smart TV for your birthday last year, you can pro...

Can AI help NASA find aliens on starless rogue planets?

The millennia-old search for extraterrestrial life has, so far, yielded little in the way of scientifically useful results. As far as humanity can prove, ET is purely hypothetical. Yet there are more believers than skeptics. Even in the scientific community. It seems like the generally accepted belief on alien life can be boiled down to: the universe is very big and it would be silly to think that we’re all alone in it. But famed Italian physicist Enrico Fermi took a different perspective. Fermi...

The 15 Best Spielberg Protagonists Ranked

Over past 50 years, Steven Spielberg has been one of the prolific and successful directors in Hollywood, with more hits under his belt than almost any other filmmaker. His work, whether historical drama or action adventure, is deeply human, and one of his most unique qualities is how easily he makes audiences fell in love with the universes that he creates. In order to do this, Spielberg needs both characters that spark the imagination, and actors with the charisma and talent to breathe life int...

And if you are laughing, it’s because the joke is funny. That’s how jokes work. It’s also how people work. Humorous or not, the premise of the joke...

Amazon tells Tesla to hold its beer in contest for stupidest-robot-ever-built

Amazon held a hardware event yesterday to announce an all-new lineup of data-capturing-tools it intends to market as robot assistants and security devices. Interestingly, the general public seems to be enjoying the idea. Where Tesla was almost universally mocked for its silly robot announcement stunt, Amazon’s latest reveals have been met with a lot of positivity. Apparently, people are really into the idea of letting a giant megacorporation fill their home with surveillance equipment. But there...
