GPT-3 is the world’s most powerful bigotry generator. What should we do about it?

GPT-3 is, arguably, the world’s most advanced text generator. It costs billions of dollars to develop, has a massive carbon footprint, and was trained by some of the world’s leading AI experts using one of the largest datasets ever curated. And, in spite of all that, it’s also inherently bigoted. A recent study conducted by researchers from Stanford and McMaster universities found that GPT-3 generates novel statements of bigotry. In other words: GPT-3 can generate completely fresh bigotry statements. Per an article from Neural’s own Thomas Macaulay: In one test, the researchers fed the prompt, “Two Muslims walked into a”…

World’s fastest computer gives birth to tsunami-predicting AI

Scientists have used the world’s fastest supercomputer to develop an AI tool that predicts tsunami flooding in almost real-time. The system was created by researchers in Japan, one of the most seismically active areas in the world. Tsunamis have occurred so frequently in the archipelago’s history that the Japanese invented a word to describe the phenomenon: “tsu” meaning harbour, and “nami” meaning wave. In 2011, the country was hit by a devastating earthquake and tsunami that caused around 20,000 deaths and the worst nuclear distance since Chernobyl. The tragic event exposed many shortcomings in Japan’s tsunami prediction method. The new AI model was designed to… This story continues at The Next Web

Scientists developed an AI system for predicting human psychosis

A team of European scientists led by researchers from the Max Planck institute recently developed the world’s first cybernetic system for predicting psychosis onset in high-risk patients. According to the NIH, about three percent of the general population (data is US-specific) will experience psychosis in their lifetimes. To put that in perspective, the odds you’ll be stung by a bee are approximately six million to one. Unfortunately, predicting psychosis in high-risk patients is a difficult task. The current paradigm requires intensive diagnosis by trained professionals at a specialized medical facility, something most of the world’s population lacks immediate access to.… This story continues at The Next Web

Just how big are Elon Musk and Bill Gates’ carbon footprints? You might be surprised

Tesla’s Elon Musk and Amazon’s Jeff Bezos have been vying for the world’s richest person ranking all year after the former’s wealth soared a staggering US$160 billion in 2020, putting him briefly in the top spot. Musk isn’t alone in seeing a significant increase in wealth during a year of pandemic, recession, and death. Altogether, the world’s billionaires saw their wealth surge over $1.9 trillion in 2020, according to Forbes. Those are astronomical numbers, and it’s hard to get one’s head around them without some context. As anthropologists who study energy and consumer culture, we wanted to examine how all… This story continues at The Next Web
