Savvy shoppers are already preparing to secure the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals.

How much autonomy is too much for AI?


AI has the power to make decisions on our behalf and the world is getting excited. But there’s always that nagging question: Who will be the servant and who will be the master? Should we approach AI from a completely different angle? Should we actually hand over control at all and let the AI make its own decisions? Well, to an extent, in some circumstances, we’re going to have to let go of the reins. AI with no decision-making power really is not AI at all. Machine learning, at times, must be input-free There’s no way to reap the massive benefits…

Facebook Watch is the ultimate test for social TV


The concept of ‘social TV’ first came to widespread prominence in 2010 as people embraced sharing their wild and wonderful opinions about TV experiences on social media. That same year, MIT Technology Review named the phenomenon in its top ten ‘breakthrough technologies’. Fast forward to 2017 and social TV is taking on a much different meaning, especially in light of the marquee launch of Facebook’s new platform for TV shows, Watch. While Amazon and Netflix have invested heavily to become some of the biggest TV makers in the business, without having a traditional terrestrial channel, Facebook is, in contrast, trying…

Counterpoint: The case against an AI god


We’d previously written an opinion piece titled “The case for an artificially intelligent god.” This is our counterpoint to that. It’s a strange time to be a technology journalist. Somehow artificial intelligence has grown from buzzword to a religion, literally. For tech enthusiasts, it can often be more comfortable to wrap our heads around ideas like algorithms and neural networks than religion and faith. Yet here we are, in a never-ending discussion on the ever-terrifying prediction that one day computers will become smarter and more powerful than humans. This is called ‘the singularity’ and it’s an event a lot of…

Brazil’s Delete Institute is a rehab for internet addicts


Internet addicts in Latin America can get a “detox” treatment at Instituto Delete in Brazil, a center focused on treating cellular and internet addictions. For many of us, our cell phone is an extension of our hand. Whether that’s healthy or not remains in how that affects our lives — but for many people, it’s the cause of arguments, conflicts and could even result in losing a job. The addiction is related to nomophobia, joining the words “no,” “mobile,” and “phobia,” to explain an irrational fear when you don’t have access to cellular connection. Instituto Delete was set up by the…

Amazon joins Facebook and Microsoft in support of open-source AI platform


Amazon yesterday announced its ONNX-MXNet package to import Open Neural Network Exchange (ONNX) deep learning models into Apache MXNet, signifying the company is on-board with Facebook and Microsoft in efforts to open-source AI. With the ONNX-MXNet Python package, developers running models based on open-source ONNX will be able to run them on Apache MXNet. Basically, this allows AI developers to keep models but switch networks, as opposed to starting from scratch. If you can imagine a thousand start ups and another thousand universities all creating at the bleeding edge of machine learning technology, but unable to share work due to…
