“The rapidly increasing usage of machine learning raises complicated questions: How can we tell if models are fair? Why do models make the predictions that they do? What are the privacy implications of feeding enormous amounts of data into models? This ongoing series of interactive, formula-free essays will walk you through these important concepts.”

LaMDA: our breakthrough conversation technology

An animation demonstrating how language is processed by LaMDA technology.

“These early results are encouraging, and we look forward to sharing more soon, but sensibleness and specificity aren’t the only qualities we’re looking for in models like LaMDA. We’re also exploring dimensions like “interestingness,” by assessing whether responses are insightful, unexpected or witty. Being Google, we also care a lot about factuality (that is, whether LaMDA sticks to facts, something language models often struggle with), and are investigating ways to ensure LaMDA’s responses aren’t just compelling but correct. But the most important question we ask ourselves when it comes to our technologies is whether they adhere to our AI Principles. Language might be one of humanity’s greatest tools, but like all tools it can be misused. Models trained on language can propagate that misuse — for instance, by internalizing biases, mirroring hateful speech, or replicating misleading information. And even when the language it’s trained on is carefully vetted, the model itself can still be put to ill use.  ”

A Smart Lamp That Watches Kids When They Study Is a Hit in China

“The lamps come equipped with two built-in cameras—one facing the child and another offering a bird’s-eye view from above—letting parents remotely monitor their children when they study. There is a smartphone-sized screen attached to each lamp, which applies artificial intelligence to offer guidance on math problems and difficult words. And parents can hire a human proctor to digitally monitor their children as they study.In addition to the basic version of the lamp, a $170 upgraded model sends alerts and photos to parents when their children slouch. That version of the lamp sold out on China’s largest e-commerce platforms earlier this month.”

Tesla is working on driver ‘safety rating’ based on driving behaviors and Autopilot use to affect insurance cost

“Here are the factors that Tesla will be tracking to determine your safety rating:

  1. ABS Activation – Number of times ABS is activated Hours Driven – Average daily driving time Forced Autopilot
  2. Disengagements – Number of times Autopilot is disabled due to ignored alerts Forward Collision
  3. Warnings – Number of times car detects a potential forward collision
  4. Unsafe Following Time – Portion of time spent at an unsafe following distance
  5. Intensity of Acceleration and Braking – Speed variance due to extreme acceleration and braking. Shown on a scale from 0-10 as measured against Tesla’s internal fleet.

This score is going to affect your premium by up to 50% on a monthly basis – meaning that it can increase or lower your insurance cost depending on how you drive.”

Allocation adultes handicapés (AAH) : non, notre « système informatique » n’est pas le problème

“«  Nous sommes le gouvernement des droits réels, pas des droits incantatoires », a scandé Sophie Cluzel pour justifier la timidité du gouvernement sur le sujet. Mais dire non à une idée à un instant T sous prétexte qu’actuellement « aucun système informatique ne pourra la mettre en œuvre », c’est prendre le problème à l’envers. C’est se réfugier derrière une fausse idée de l’informatique pour justifier une décision politique. Indexer un droit aux capacités de nos systèmes informatiques, c’est mettre le code au-dessus de la loi.”

Searching for Wikipedia – [[WM:TECHBLOG]]

File:Wikipedia search referrals dashboard.png

“How people use Search to access Wikipedia is a common question by researchers. Until now, however, there has been little data available about this relationship. To help address these questions, the Wikimedia Foundation is releasing a new, faceted dataset on search engine traffic to Wikipedia so you can ask questions like “What is the most common search engine in my country?” or “Which search engine is most-used by Android users?””

Welcome to the Artificial Intelligence Incident Database

N.Y.P.D. Robot Dog’s Run Is Cut Short After Fierce Backlash

“The AI Incident Database is a collection of harms or near harms realized in the real world by the deployment of intelligent systems. You are invited to submit reports to the database, whereupon accepted incidents will be indexed and made discoverable to people developing and deploying the next generation of AI technology to the world. Artificial intelligence will only be a benefit to people and society if we collectively record and learn from its failings.”
