Brain implant uses only your thoughts to operate digital devices, researchers say

Millions of people around the world are unable to use digital technology because of physical impairments. However, what if they could send a text or email using only their thoughts? It may sound like wishful thinking, but new technology currently in clinical trials could make this a reality, according to researchers. At his home in Melbourne, Australia, 62-year-old Philip O'Keefe struggles to do the simple things that many of us take for granted — like getting dressed, washing and feeding himself — after amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) took away his ability to control his hands and body. In April of 2020, O'Keefe became one of the first patients to receive a Stentrode endovascular brain computer interface implant. Dr. Thomas Oxley, CEO of New York City-based Synchron, is leadin...

AI Generated Art Is A Copyright, Ethical And Working Dystopia

It’s August 2022, and by now you’ve no doubt read (or more likely seen) something about AI art. Whether it’s random jokes made for Twitter or paintings that look like they were made by actual human beings, artificial intelligence’s ability to create art has exploded onto the scene over the last few months, and while this has been great news for shitposts and fans of tech, it has also raised a number of important questions and concerns. If you haven’t read or seen anything about the subject, AI art—at least as it exists in the state we know it today—is, as Ahmed Elgammal writing in American Scientist so neatly puts it, made when “artists write algorithms not to follow a set of rules, but to ‘learn’ a specific aesthetic by analyzing thousands of images. The algorithm then tries to generate n...

Australia Warned of Falling Behind in Technology Race

A five-year productivity inquiry into Australia’s digital technologies and data has found that the country could fall behind in the race against technological change. In its latest interim report, the Productivity Commission said that inadequate internet, lack of skills, low awareness and uncertainty about benefits, security concerns, cost and maintaining legacy systems were preventing Australian businesses from adopting new technologies. The report said while Australia was doing well in terms of internet connections and data volumes, it was falling behind other countries on other advanced indicators. “Australia’s internet speeds are relatively low, and business use of data-driven technologies, such as AI (artificial intelligence) and analytics, trails uptake in other countries,” the commi...

U.S. Civil Rights Enforcers Warn Employers Against Biased AI | Technology News

By MATT O'BRIEN, AP Technology WriterThe federal government said Thursday that artificial intelligence technology to screen new job candidates or monitor worker productivity can unfairly discriminate against people with disabilities, sending a warning to employers that the commonly used hiring tools could violate civil rights laws.The U.S. Justice Department and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission jointly issued guidance to employers to take care before using popular algorithmic tools meant to streamline the work of evaluating employees and job prospects — but which could also potentially run afoul of the Americans with Disabilities Act.“We are sounding an alarm regarding the dangers tied to blind reliance on AI and other technologies that we are seeing increasingly used by employe...

Google Gets More Multilingual, but Will It Get the Nuance? | Technology News

By FRANKLIN BRICEÑO and MATT O'BRIEN, Associated PressLIMA, Peru (AP) — About 10 million people speak Quechua, but trying to automatically translate emails and text messages into the most widely spoken Indigenous language family in the Americas was long all but impossible.That changed on Wednesday, when Google added Quechua and a variety of other languages to its digital translation service.The internet giant says new artificial intelligence technology is enabling it to vastly expand Google Translate’s repertoire of the world’s languages. It added 24 of them this week, including Quechua and other Indigenous South American languages such as Guarani and Aymara. It is also adding a number of widely spoken African and South Asian languages that have long been missing from popular tech products...

Lawmakers to debate limiting the use of facial recognition technology in Colorado | Legislature

Lawmakers will soon debate on how much to limit the use of facial recognition technology in Colorado after the state House and Senate passed competing regulations on Friday.As drafted, Senate Bill 113 would establish several regulations for the use of facial recognition by government and law enforcement agencies, as well as prohibit the technology in schools until 2025. The state Senate approved the bill as is, but the state House voted to roll back the limitations. The two chambers will duke out the differences in the coming days.Sen. Chris Hansen, the sponsor of the original bill, said he is seeking to limit the use of facial recognition technology because o...
