La start-up française Mistral AI a levé 385 millions d’euros


“Son principal atout est d’avoir été cofondée par trois experts français de l’IA, formés à l’Ecole polytechnique et à l’Ecole normale supérieure, embauchés par les géants américains mais revenus à Paris. Le PDG, Arthur Mensch, 31 ans, polytechnicien et normalien, a passé près de trois ans chez DeepMind, le laboratoire d’IA de Google. Ses associés viennent de Meta (Facebook) : Guillaume Lample est l’un des créateurs du modèle de langage LLama, dévoilé par Meta en février, et Timothée Lacroix était lui aussi chercheur chez Meta.”

Signal accuse la France de dire n’importe quoi sur sa messagerie sécurisée

“« Signal est une référence en matière de sécurité. L’insinuation de problème de sécurité de la Première ministre est dangereux et inquiétant », a ainsi écrit Baptiste Robert. « Cette pointe d’antiaméricanisme [la fondation Signal est basée aux États-Unis, NDLR] idéologique constante est nuisible au débat et ne devrait pas jouer sur les discussions techniques », a-t-il ajouté. Au-delà des qualités propres d’Olvid, soulignées par Baptiste Robert, mais aussi par l’Agence nationale de la sécurité des systèmes d’information (Anssi), qui lui a délivré une certification de sécurité de premier niveau, la question est de savoir si tout cela ne va pas finir par se retourner contre elle. Surtout si elle est présentée comme une solution parfaitement sûre.”

This Tool Could Protect Artists From A.I. Image Generators

“To the human eye, the Glazed image still looks like her work, but the computer-learning model would pick up on something very different. It’s similar to a tool the University of Chicago team previously created to protect photos from facial recognition systems.
When Ms. Ortiz posted her Glazed work online, an image generator trained on those images wouldn’t be able to mimic her work. A prompt with her name would instead lead to images in some hybridized style of her works and Pollock’s.
“We’re taking our consent back,” Ms. Ortiz said. A.I.-generating tools, many of which charge users a fee to generate images, “have data that doesn’t belong to them,” she said. “That data is my artwork, that’s my life. It feels like my identity.”
The team at the University of Chicago admitted that their tool does not guarantee protection and could lead to countermeasures by anyone committed to emulating a particular artist. “We’re pragmatists,” Professor Zhao said. “We recognize the likely long delay before law and regulations and policies catch up. This is to fill that void.””

An update on Canada’s Bill C-18 and our Search and News products – Google Public Policy

“We have now informed the Government that when the law takes effect, we unfortunately will have to remove links to Canadian news from our Search, News and Discover products in Canada, and that C-18 will also make it untenable for us to continue offering our Google News Showcase product in Canada. We’re disappointed it has come to this. We don’t take this decision or its impacts lightly and believe it’s important to be transparent with Canadian publishers and our users as early as possible.”

Wikilegal/Copyright Analysis of ChatGPT

“It is important to note that Creative Commons licenses allow for free reproduction and reuse, so AI programs like ChatGPT might copy text from a Wikipedia article or an image from Wikimedia Commons. However, it is not clear yet whether massively copying content from these sources may result in a violation of the Creative Commons license if attribution is not granted. Overall, it is more likely than not if current precedent holds that training systems on copyrighted data will be covered by fair use in the United States, but there is significant uncertainty at time of writing. ”

30 years of a free and open Web | CERN

“Exactly 30 years ago, on 30 April 1993, CERN made an important announcement. Walter Hoogland and Helmut Weber, respectively the Director of Research and Director of Administration at the time, decided to publicly release the tool that Tim Berners-Lee had first proposed in 1989 to allow scientists and institutes working on CERN data all over the globe to share information accurately and quickly. Little did they know how much it would change the world. On this day in 1993, CERN released the World Wide Web to the public. Now, it is an integral feature of our daily lives: according to the International Telecommunications Union, more than 5 billion people, two thirds of the worldwide population, rely on the internet regularly for research, industry, communications and entertainment. “Most people would agree that the public release was the best thing we could have done, and that it was the source of the success of the World Wide Web,” says Walter Hoogland, co-signatory of the document that proclaimed the Web’s release, “apart from, of course, the World Wide Web itself!””
