Don’t ask if artificial intelligence is good or fair, ask how it shifts power “When the field of AI believes it is neutral, it both fails to notice biased data and builds systems that sanctify the status quo and advance the interests of the powerful. What is needed is a field that exposes and critiques […]

An A.I. Training Tool Has Been Passing Its Bias to Algorithms for Almost Two Decades | by Hayden Field | OneZero ““I consider ‘bias’ a euphemism,” says Brandeis Marshall, PhD, data scientist and CEO of DataedX, an edtech and data science firm. “The words that are used are varied: There’s fairness, there’s responsibility, there’s algorithmic […]

Live Deep Fakes — you can now change your face to someone else’s in real time video applications. | by Alessandro Cauduro | Huia | Medium “The first thing that came into my mind when I first heard about Deep Fakes, is what would happen if we could create DeepFakes in realtime and not just […]

Is the Matrix real?

Do we live in a computer simulation? Are we simulated by advanced descendants of an original race? Can we win the race against robots? Will machines hold supremacy over the world?  Artificial intelligence doesn’t have any definite definition, but it surely corresponds to machine learning which connects certain features of biology like neural networks to maths which is the […]

Technological Singularity: 3 AI Articles.

The Coming Technological Singularity, Vernor Vinge: Discusses the Idea of Technological Singularities, with the main idea being that eventually, AI intelligence will  be greater than that of humans, due to the constant increasing rate that technology develops.  Discusses the possible advancements, such as giant collaborative networks of AI, a mismatch of human and AI and […]

Models And Simulations

Infographic The simulations I tried were Bouncy maps – https://www.bouncymaps.com/#!/bouncymaps/WORLD/1147138151 and Phet http://phet.colorado.edu/sims/html/energy-skate-park-basics/latest/energy-skate-park-basics_en.html. I feel that they have a really easy and efficient user interface as you can play around on the web itself, certain other simulations require you to download/embed one. The Phet one is a little tough to get your head around but […]

Hello all 5 people who read my posts that aren’t me, I’m back from the dead to write a new blog post on the topic of simulations and models except this time, I’ll be using a different medium: Infographics. When tasked with making infographics for the topic, I decided to use canva instead of hand […]

Infographic link   PHeT atomic interaction simulations: This simulation was quite interesting for me since I’d used other simulations from the same website in physics classes before; they were for much simpler topics, or for exploring radioactivity which isn’t possible to do in Singapore. Thus it was quite familiar to me, but I can imagine […]

This AI Uses Your Brain Activity to Create Fake Faces It Knows You’ll Find Attractive “As such, there are certainly some sinister ways technology like this could be used—and the faces don’t need to be attractive, they just need to look real. Any circumstances where it would be useful to have fake people—like profile photos […]

bouncymaps phetsimulations (Links to open the Bouncy Maps and PhET infographics are above) Computer models and simulations can challenge our learning but they can also really help us understand and visualize things in a clearer way. Bouncy Maps and PhET simulations are quite different but they are both very successful in getting their points across. […]
