Converging Solutions: Artificial Networks Shed Light on Human Face Recognition

Humans are almost hardwired to recognize faces. It’s important for us to tell people apart and we barely think about it. But the recognition process is far from being understood. Researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel have compared how deep neural networks recognize faces and compared this with activation pattern data from […]

Most Deepfakes Are Porn, and They’re Multiplying Fast | WIRED

Two years ago, software was realeased that montaged faces of Hollywood actresses into pornographic video clips. This is now known as deepfakes and the technology has found a wide audience. While some of the manipulated videos are fun and mostly harmless like the picture above, a report by Deeptrace found 96% of deepfakes are pornographic. […]

OpenAI has released the largest version yet of its fake-news-spewing AI – MIT Technology Review

A half-size version of the now infamous language model of OpenAI has been released and the group examined the impact of their decisions so far in a recent paper. OpenAIs decision not to publish the whole model was heavily critized. Vanya Cohen, a recent master’s graduate from Brown University, went on to recreate an open-source […]

Artificial Artificial Intelligence

Behind a successful AI there is a human doing critical work. It’s an open secret that behind the “magic” of AI tools there are large teams of people, doing things like labeling the training data to make it work. The result of their work is truly impressive: we are tricked into believing that these AIs […]

The Challenge of Crafting Intelligible Intelligence | June 2019 | Communications of the ACM

Modern AI approaches often work like black boxes: nobody really knows why things work the way they work. Offering explanations why an AI system came to a conclusion is certainly needed. The article by Daniel S. Weld and Gagan Bansal [1] studied two approaches that are promising: using an inherently interpretable model, or adopting an […]
