Blaise Aguera y Arcas and Melanie Mitchell: How Close Are We to AI?

Posted by in categories: employment, internet, robotics/AI

Artificial Intelligence (AI), a term first coined at a Dartmouth workshop in 1956, has seen several boom and bust cycles over the last 66 years. Is the current boom different?

The most exciting advance in the field since 2017 has been the development of “Large Language Models,” giant neural networks trained on massive databases of text on the web. Still highly experimental, Large Language Models haven’t yet been deployed at scale in any consumer product — smart/voice assistants like Alexa, Siri, Cortana, or the Google Assistant are still based on earlier, more scripted approaches.

Elon Musk reacted to Secretary Blinken’s statement “to advance internet freedom to Iranians”

Elon Musk, the SpaceX CEO, and CEO of electric car manufacturer Tesla said on Friday that he would be activating the firm’s satellite internet service Starlink in Iran. This is a response to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s statement that the United States took action “to advance internet freedom and the free flow of information” to Iranians.

Despite sanctions imposed on Iran, the U.S. Treasury Department on Friday issued guidance on expanding internet services available to Iranians. Following the death of 22-year-old Masha Amini’s suspicious death in the custody of Iranian authorities.

AI model from OpenAI automatically recognizes speech and translates it to English

Posted by in categories: internet, robotics/AI


On Wednesday, OpenAI released a new open source AI model called Whisper that recognizes and translates audio at a level that approaches human recognition ability. It can transcribe interviews, podcasts, conversations, and more.

OpenAI trained Whisper on 680,000 hours of audio data and matching transcripts in 98 languages collected from the web. According to OpenAI, this open-collection approach has led to “improved robustness to accents, background noise, and technical language.” It can also detect the spoken language and translate it to English.

The Internet will be 90% AI-generated content by 2026, claim experts

Posted by in categories: internet, law enforcement, robotics/AI

According to a report by AI experts, the internet is set to be overrun by AI-generated content in just a few years. Will this ruin content for the rest of time?

A study by Europol, The European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Cooperation, claims that AI will be more prominent than human-made content very soon. The study explains that the vast expansion of AI tools means that we’ll have to deal with more AI-generated content than human-made content.

In the report, it’s claimed that humanity will be flooded with “synthetic media”. This is a new term for media that is fully generated by artificial intelligence programs, fuelled by bots designed to pump out as much content as possible.

A WiFi Deauthentication Project in a Sleek Package

Posted by in categories: education, internet, security, wearables

Wearable tech has seen an explosion of creativity and applications in the last decade; especially with circuit components getting smaller and cheaper, and batteries getting better and better. Whereas taking phone calls on your wrist was impressive just a few years ago, now, you can experiment with deauthentication attacks on WiFi networks just from this watch: the DSTIKE Deauther Watch SE.

Based on the ESP8266 WiFi microcontroller, this watch is the latest generation of a project to give you a wearable interface for pen testing local WiFi networks. The watch only works on 2.4GHz networks, due to the restrictions of the ESP8266. It comes pre-flashed with the latest ESP8266 Deauther firmware, which is an open-source project! The watch supports four main functions: a deauther attack, which disconnects all local 2.4GHz networks; deauther beacon, used for creating fake networks; deauther probe, to confuse any nearby WiFi trackers; and packet monitoring, which lets you display local WiFi traffic. As you can see, there’s a lot to appreciate in this slick and discreet package.

This watch (and its prior iterations) are made and sold by Travis Lin. Much like the seller emphasizes on the product page, this device is meant for educational purposes, and should be only tested on devices and networks you own. But if this has your curiosity piqued, put on your red hat and check out the wearable devices and other security goodies they have for sale!
