Facebook rolls out AI to detect suicidal posts before they’re reported

Facebook’s new “proactive detection” artificial intelligence technology will scan all posts for patterns of suicidal thoughts, and when necessary send mental health resources to the user at risk or their friends, or contact local first-responders. By using AI to flag worrisome posts to human moderators instead of waiting for user reports, Facebook can decrease how […]

Using Generative Adverserial Networks to create terrain maps

A team of researchers from the University of Lyon, Purdue and Ubisoft have published a paper showing what may well be the future of creating video game worlds: an AI that is able to construct most of its own 3D landscapes. Similar to Nvidia’s work that is able to conjure its own celebrity mugshots, the […]

NDA Lynn: AI screens your NDAs

NDA’s or confidentiality agreements are a fact of life if you’re in business. You’ve probably read tons of them, and you know more or less what you would accept.Of course you can hire a lawyer to review that NDA. And you know they’ll find faults and recommend changes to better protect you.But it’ll cost you, […]

Forget cookies or canvas: How to follow people around the web using only their typing techniques

In this paper (Sequential Keystroke Behavioral Biometrics for MobileUser Identification via Multi-view Deep Learning), we propose DEEPSERVICE, a new technique that can identify mobile users based on user’s keystroke information captured by a special keyboard or web browser. Our evaluation results indicate that DEEPSERVICE is highly accurate in identifying mobile users (over 93% accuracy). The […]

Forward your scammer emails to Re:scam and here’s what happens. Source: Re:scam The AI bot assumes one of many identities with little mistakes and tries to keep the scammer busy with the email exchange for as long as possible using humor. Which reminds me of (seems to be down now), which had a number […]

Machine learning of neural representations of suicide and emotion concepts identifies suicidal youth | Nature Human Behaviour

The clinical assessment of suicidal risk would be substantially complemented by a biologically based measure that assesses alterations in the neural representations of concepts related to death and life in people who engage in suicidal ideation. This study used machine-learning algorithms (Gaussian Naive Bayes) to identify such individuals (17 suicidal ideators versus 17 controls) with […]

How we fooled Google’s AI into thinking a 3D-printed turtle was a gun

Students at MIT in the US claim they have developed an algorithm for creating 3D objects and pictures that trick image-recognition systems into severely misidentifying them. Think toy turtles labeled rifles, and baseballs as cups of coffee. It’s well known that machine-learning software can be easily hoodwinked: Google’s AI-in-the-cloud can be misled by noise; protestors […]

A generative vision model that trains with high data efficiency and breaks text-based CAPTCHAs

Learning from few examples and generalizing to dramatically different situations are capabilities of human visual intelligence that are yet to be matched by leading machine learning models. By drawing inspiration from systems neuroscience, we introduce a probabilistic generative model for vision in which message-passing based inference handles recognition, segmentation and reasoning in a unified way. […]

Nvidia uses Progressive Growing of GANs for Improved Quality, Stability, and Variation and makes photorealistic faces with them

We describe a new training methodology for generative adversarial networks. The key idea is to grow both the generator and discriminator progressively, starting from low-resolution images, and add new layers that deal with higher resolution details as the training progresses. This greatly stabilizes the training and allows us to produce images of unprecedented quality, e.g., […]
