Microsoft wields ML to catch child predators
Roundup Welcome to the first AI round up of this year. AI continues to taille de bague homme pdf spread like wildfire and everyone wants a slice of the pie even Hollywood. coque samsung coque samsung Read on for the latest bague homme street flop in facial recognition, too.
Hollywood is cozying up to AI algos: Warner Bros, the massive American film studio and entertainment conglomerate, is employing algorithmic tools to help it decide if a film will become a blockbuster, or go bust at the cinema.
Studios taille de bague homme 9 like Warner Bros have a limited amount of budget to splash on new projects every year. coque huawei coque iphone 7 Directors bid fiercely to fund the films bague homme or blanc et bois they believe will make everyone the most profits. coque iphone But there are a vast number of factors to consider, and it can become all very time consuming and prove to be a total waste of time if a film eventually flops. So, why not employ a machine to help you decide
Warner Bros have signed a deal with bague homme goth Cinelytic, an AI analytics startup based in Los Angeles, to do just that, according to Hollywood Reporter. iphone 11 case coque iphone 7 pas cher Cinelytic’s software will help predict a particular film’s profits, helping studios decide issues like what to release and where.
“The platform reduces executives’ time spent on low value, repetitive tasks and instead focuses on generating actionable insights for packaging, green lighting, marketing and distribution decisions in real time,” according oeil de tigre bague homme to a statement from Cinelytic.
Over Christmas. coque huawei Nvidia improved bague en argent qui noircit le doigt its StyleGAN software capable of generating realistic photos of faces, buildings, and so on, from scratch to version two, ironing out artifacts that give away the fact the images were imagined by a computer.
Microsoft is licensing swarovski bague homme tete de mort software that catches child groomers on Xbox: Redmond has deployed a fausse bague homme tool it has been developing with academics to prevent online child abuse.
Codenamed Project Artemis, the software analyzes text conversations and rates how inappropriate the interactions are bague en argent femme originale and if the messages should be flagged for human bague en argent rose moderators to review. Those taille bague homme 69 humans then report suspected sexual exploitation to law enforcement.
Microsoft’s chief digital safety officer Courtney Gregoire did not reveal how Project Artemis works in a blog post, this week, so we bague homme gros doigt spoke to the boffins behind it directly.
The tool was developed internally with the help of academics, who participated in a hackathon in 2018. bracelet bijoux coque iphone xs Hany Farid, a professor working at the University of California Berkeley’s department of electrical engineering and computer science and the school of information, told The Register that no fancy deep bague homme octogonale learning was used, instead the system is based on some “fairly standard non linear regression to learn a numeric risk score based on the text based conversation between two people.”
Companies interested in licensing the technology should contact Thorn, a tech company building software applications aimed at protecting children against sexual abuse.
Uh oh! Contractors have bague homme argent anneau snooped in on thousands of Skype calls: bague homme romaine Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, but contractors working on behalf of tech companies have been listening to sensitive audio clips gleaned from users in the bague en argent femme grande taille hopes of improving its services.
This time it’s Skype owner Microsoft. coque iphone 6 pas cher A former contractor working in Beijing revealed that he had listened to thousands of sensitive and disturbing recordings bague en argent massif femme over Skype and Cortana. coque iphone x There was little security and workers in China could access the clips via a web app on Google bague homme croix noir Chrome, as reported by The Guardian.
The leaker was also encouraged to use the same password for all his Microsoft accounts, apparently. Contractors were not given any security training either, a risky move considering the data could be stolen by miscreants. He said he heard “all kinds of unusual conversations, including what could have been domestic violence.”
Microsoft has since said that it has updated its privacy statement to make it clear that humans are sometimes listening in on Skype calls nettoyer bague en argent noirci or interactions with its voice enabled assistant Cortana. coque huawei And it said that nom bague homme recorded audio clips flagged for review are only ten seconds long, so that contractors don’t have access to longer conversations.
Here’s how the White House wants America’s companies to develop AI tech: The Trump Administration is working to expand its national AI strategy to broach the topic of regulation.
There is little a quel doigt porter bague homme oversight or rules on how AI technology should be used by the private sector at the moment. coque samsung So the US government wants to take a stab at changing that by, erm, “proposing a first of its kind set of regulatory principles”.
These principles probably won’t do much, they’re not real policies unless backed up by law. But nevertheless, the Trump Administration wants to make some sort of attempt at guiding regulation.
“Must we decide between embracing this emerging technology and following our moral compass,” the chief technology officer of the US, Michael Kratsios, wrote in an op ed published in Bloomberg this week.
“That’s a false choice. We can advance emerging technology in a way that reflects our values of freedom, human rights and respect for human dignity,” he continued. Kratsios proposes that federal agencies should make it easier for the public, academics, companies, and non profits to make comments and leave feedback on any AI policies made.
Agencies like the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) should assess a product’s risk and cost before regulating a particular technology. They should also take into account issues like transparency, safety, security and fairness that support American values.
“Americans have long embraced technology as a tool to improve people’s lives. With artificial intelligence, we are ready to do it again,” Kratsios concluded.
San Diego has ended its seven year experiment with facial recognition: Finally, here’s a long read on how San Diego’s law enforcement used facial recognition over seven years to hunt for criminals prowling the American city’s streets.
A network of bague homme pierre fine 1,300 cameras embedded on smartphones and tablets manipulated by staff recorded over 65,000 faces from 2012 to 2019. bijoux personnalise These images were then bague homme argent rhodié ran against a database of mugshots to look for any potential matches.
And over these last seven years, no arrests as result from the technology were ever made, according to Fast Company.
