Web users in the UK will be banned from accessing websites portraying a range of non-conventional sexual acts, under a little discussed clause to a government bill currently going through parliament.

« The AI vastly outperformed a professional lip-reader who attempted to decipher 200 randomly selected clips from the data set. The professional annotated just 12.4 per cent of words without any error. But the AI annotated 46.8 per cent of all words in the March to September data set.
The AI system was trained using some 5000 hours from six different TV programmes, including NewsnightBBC Breakfast and Question Time. In total, the videos contained 118,000 sentences ».

« I think government involvement is coming, and I’d like to get ahead of it. I’d like to start thinking about what this would look like.We’re now at the point where we need to start making more ethical and political decisions about how these things work. When it didn’t matter—when it was Facebook, when it was Twitter, when it was email—it was OK to let programmers, to give them the special right to code the world as they saw fit. We were able to do that. But now that it’s the world of dangerous things—and it’s cars and planes and medical devices and everything else—maybe we can’t do that anymore ».
