Amazon AGI Team Say Their AI Is Showing “Emergent Abilities”

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

A new Amazon AI model, according to the researchers who built it, is exhibiting language abilities that it wasn’t trained on.

In a not-yet-peer-reviewed academic paper, the team at Amazon AGI — which stands for “artificial general intelligence,” or human-level AI — say their large language model (LLM) is exhibiting “state-of-the-art naturalness” at conversational text. Per the examples shared in the paper, the model does seem sophisticated.

As the paper indicates, the model was able to come up with all sorts of sentences that, according to criteria crafted with the help of an “expert linguist,” showed it was making the types of language leaps that are natural in human language learners but have been difficult to obtain in AI.

NTU develops thinner-than-hair stretchable tech to mind-control robots

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

Researchers at the Nanyang Technical University (NTU) in Singapore are leading the way in the development of soft electronics and have now set up a high-tech laboratory where they can rapidly prototype new devices with ultrathin and stretchable electronics.

Conventional electronics products are hard and rigid since they rely on silicon as their primary substrate. These products work well at industrial scales or even for personal use products.

Space surgery: Doctors on ground operate robot on ISS for first time

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

Remote surgery in orbit.


Earth-bound surgeons remotely controlled a small robot aboard the International Space Station over the weekend, conducting the first-ever such surgery in orbit—albeit on rubber bands.

The experiment, deemed a “huge success” by the participants, represents a new step in the development of space surgery, which could become necessary to treat medical emergencies during multi-year manned voyages, such as to Mars.

AI tools better at predicting heart transplant rejection than standard clinical method, finds study

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension, robotics/AI

More than 4,500 heart transplants were performed in the U.S. in 2023. While the lifesaving operation improves the quality of life and longevity for most recipients, organ rejection remains a risk, with acute rejection occurring in up to 32% of recipients within the first year.

A team of researchers from Emory University, Case Western Reserve University and the University of Pennsylvania developed artificial intelligence tools to examine cardiac biopsy images to improve the prediction of rejection, helping to ensure patients receive the best possible post-transplant treatment.

Currently, clinicians rely on histologic grading of cardiac biopsies to diagnose . However, there are limitations to the method, which assigns International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) histologic grades corresponding to no, mild, moderate and severe rejection.

OpenAI Hiring Detective to Find Who’s Leaking Its Precious Info

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, security

OpenAI is looking to hire an “insider risk investigator” to “fortify our organization against internal security threats.”

According to the company’s job listing, first spotted by MSPowerUser, the gumshoe is supposed to help the company safeguard its assets by “analyzing anomalous activities, promoting a secure culture, and interacting with various departments to mitigate risks.” Per the Wayback Machine, the job listing has been up since mid-January.

“You’ll play a crucial role in safeguarding OpenAI’s assets by analyzing anomalous activities, promoting a secure culture, and interacting with various departments to mitigate risks,” the listing reads. “Your expertise will be instrumental in protecting OpenAI against internal risks, thereby contributing to the broader societal benefits of artificial intelligence.”
