«We present a method to create universal, robust, targeted adversarial image patches in the real world. The patches are universal because they can be used to attack any scene, robust because they work under a wide variety of transformations, and targeted because they can cause a classifier to output any target class. These adversarial patches can be printed, added to any scene, photographed, and presented to image classifiers; even when the patches are small, they cause the classifiers to ignore the other items in the scene and report a chosen target class».
«Goodfellow’s friends were just as adamant that this method wouldn’t work, either. So when he got home that night, he built the thing. « I went home still a little bit drunk. And my girlfriend had already gone to sleep. And I was sitting there thinking: ‘My friends at the bar are wrong!' » he remembers. « I stayed up and coded GANs on my laptop. » The way he tells it, the code worked on the first try. « That was really, really lucky, » he says, « because if it hadn’t of worked, I might have given up on the idea. »»
«You can listen to some of the Tacotron 2 audio samples that demonstrate the results of our state-of-the-art TTS system. In an evaluation where we asked human listeners to rate the naturalness of the generated speech, we obtained a score that was comparable to that of professional recordings».
«Alphabet Inc.’s Google moved 15.9 billion euros ($19.2 billion) to a Bermuda shell company in 2016, regulatory filings in the Netherlands show — saving the company billions of dollars in taxes that year. Google uses two structures, known as a “Double Irish” and a “Dutch Sandwich,” to shield the majority of its international profits from taxation. The setup involves shifting revenue from one Irish subsidiary to a Dutch company with no employees, and then on to a Bermuda mailbox owned by another Ireland-registered company».
«While a number of communities have devised strategies like turn restrictions and speed humps that affect all motorists, Leonia’s move may be the most extreme response. Leonia plans to issue residents yellow tags to hang in their cars, and nonresidents who use the streets in the morning and afternoon will face $200 fines. Its police department has already alerted the major traffic and navigation apps to the impending changes, which will take effect on Jan. 22 from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m., and from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week.»
«The collaboration between the intelligence community and big, commercial science and tech companies has been wildly successful. When national security agencies need to identify and track people and groups, they know where to turn – and do so frequently. That was the goal in the beginning. It has succeeded perhaps more than anyone could have imagined at the time».
«The children in the videos appeared to be younger than 13 years old, the minimum age for registering an account on YouTube. The videos themselves did not have sexual themes, but showed children emulating their favourite YouTube stars by, for instance, reviewing toys or showing their « outfit of the day.
The explicit comments on these videos were passed on to the company using its form to report child endangerment – the same form that is available to general users.
Over a period of several weeks, five of the comments were deleted, but no action was taken against the remaining 23 until Trending contacted the company and provided a full list ».
«I want to spread the word about our claim. Google owes all of those affected fairness, trust and money. By joining together, we can show Google that they can’t get away with taking our data without our consent, and that no matter how large and powerful they are, nobody is above the law».
Laisser Android voir vos proches plutôt que laisser vos proches voir votre Android. La vie privée (caméra active en permanence) ou la batterie ne semblent pas être des problèmes…

«Tu vois, aujourd’hui, les chaînes de montage de voitures automatisées ? Avant, c’était des gens qui le faisaient, ben je suis un peu cet exécutant-là sur la chaîne, qui un jour sera remplacé par un robot. Sauf que ça sera un robot d’intelligence artificielle. Et ce que je fais moi d’ailleurs, c’est du travail à la chaîne. C’est là qu’ils ont été intelligents chez Google».
