YouTube’s new AI will block videos that are inappropriate for kids

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

YouTube will start using AI to automatically add age restrictions to videos “over the coming months,” the company announced on Tuesday.

The site currently relies on content reviewers to flag videos that aren’t appropriate for viewers under 18, but will soon start using machine learning to detect content for review. Uploaders will be able to appeal the system’s decisions.

In addition, viewers who try to evade the restrictions by watching videos embedded on third-party websites will be redirected to YouTube, where they’ll have to sign-in to show they’re over 18.

Microsoft exclusively licenses OpenAI’s groundbreaking GPT-3 text generation model

Posted by in categories: ethics, robotics/AI, transportation

OpenAI will still let researchers use the model.


Microsoft has expanded its ongoing partnership with San Francisco-based artificial intelligence research company OpenAI with a new exclusive license on the AI firm’s groundbreaking GPT-3 language model, an auto-generating text program that’s emerged as the most sophisticated of its kind in the industry.

The two companies are already entwined through OpenAI’s ongoing Azure cloud computing contract, with Azure being the platform on which OpenAI accesses the vast computing resources it needs to train many of its models, and a major $1 billion investment Microsoft made last year to become OpenAI’s exclusive cloud provider. Now, Microsoft is issuing yet another signal of high confidence in OpenAI’s research by acquiring the rights to GPT-3.

Blue Origin targets this Thursday for New Shepard reusable rocket launch with NASA landing system test

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, space travel

Blue Origin just announced the timing of its next rocket launch — and it’s surprisingly soon, in just two days, on Thursday, September 24. The launch of Blue Origin’s New Shepard vehicle will be its thirteenth overall for that category of launch craft, and the seventh in a row for this particular rocket. The payload will include an even dozen commercial cargo items, including a Deorbit, Descent and Landing Sensor Demonstration done in partnership with NASA — basically a highly precise automated landing system that will help NASA land on the moon and eventually Mars.

That payload is unique not just because of the technology involved in the landing system, but also because it’ll actually be mounted to the exterior of the New Shephard’s booster stage, rather than in the capsule that rides atop it. This is the first time that Blue Origin has carried a payload this way, and the company expects it could pave the way for similar future missions, enabling sensing at high altitudes, and experiments made possible through use of equipment exposed to the external environment.

Unmanned aircraft transport organs in Las Vegas

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health, robotics/AI

Las Vegas hosted two successful test flights using unmanned aircraft to carry human organs and tissue last week. On Sept. 17th, MissionGo, a provider of unmanned aviation solutions and Nevada Donor Network, conducted two unmanned flights — one of which was the longest organ delivery flight in Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) history. The first flight involved transport of research corneas fromSouthern Hills Hospital and Medical Center to Dignity Health — St. Rose Dominican, San Martín Campus.
