The Robot Ships Are Coming … Eventually

@WIRED shared
The Mayflower Autonomous Ship won’t be taking commands from a human captain like the first Mayflower did during its crossing back in 1620. Instead it will get orders from an “AI captain” built by programmers at IBM. https://t.co/qH7oAf4gQH

Designed to Deceive: Do These People Look Real to You?

Artificial intelligence is responsible for these fakes. It trains on photos of real people and tries to make its own, then attempts to detect the flaws. Over time, it learns and keeps getting better. It will soon be hard to tell online who is real. https://t.co/rNQXV2jh73

The people in this story may look familiar, like ones you’ve seen on Facebook or Twitter or Tinder. But they don’t exist. They were born from the mind of a computer, and the technology behind them is improving at a startling pace.

How Facebook Is Preparing for Myanmar’s 2020 Election

@ylecun shared
@martingoodson Measures were taken against that. But it's not easy and takes time. For example, automatic hate speech detectors that work well in Burmese and can take down content preemptively only became available the last year, thanks to recent progress in NLP. https://t.co/pVTEIkyzC2

We're sharing an update on how we're protecting the election in Myanmar, preventing voter suppression, combating hate speech and more.
