    You know how Google's new feature called AI Overviews is prone to spitting out wildly incorrect answers to search queries? In one instance, AI Overviews told a user to use glue on pizza to make sure the cheese won't slide off (pssst...please don't do this.)

    The first batch of pictures I made with ChatGPT got some good response. Here is a second helping. Some of these were suggested by others. The rest, percolated to the top of my (questionably stable) gray matter and wouldn't leave me alone until I did something with them. Don't know if I'll ever do something like this again, ChatGPT is a great tool but it shouldn't be a "toy".Anyhoo, enjoy!

  • Google’s ‘AI Overviews’ advises adding glue to pizza sauce, lists ‘health benefits’ of tobacco for tweens

    Google’s AI-generated search results are already being slammed as a “disaster” that “can no longer be trusted” — with critics citing bizarre responses that have included advising adding glue to pizza sauce and touting the health benefits of tobacco for kids. In a controversial feature that critics say poses dire threats to traditional media outlets, Google’s chatbot auto-generates summaries for complex user queries while effectively demoting links to other websites. Dubbed “AI Overviews,” the feature rolled out to all US users beginning last week and is expected to reach more than 1 billion users by the end of the year...

    I'm deeply involved in AI in my current company. While it is not my described role, I feel it is stupid to wait to be assigned a task. I feel it is best to see an opportunity, and seize it. Therefore, I am now my division's AI Advocate. I recently put together a use-case, ensured it worked, and made it available to the company. During a town hall, I continuously mentioned the use case (in the chat) and got well over 25 requests for more information. The use-case is how to record a Zoom meeting, how to create a transcript...

    Steve Kramer, a Democratic operative who admitted to commissioning an artificial intelligence-generated robocall of President Biden that was sent to New Hampshire voters early this year, is now facing criminal charges. According to court documents, Kramer has been indicted by a grand jury in New Hampshire on felony charges of bribing, intimidation and suppression over the calls. He’s also facing charges for impersonation of candidates. Kramer, who worked for Dean Phillips — the longshot Democratic presidential candidate who ended his bid in March — told The Washington Post in February that he sent out the AI-generated robocall. Kramer claimed he...

    Artificial intelligence scientist Geoffrey Hinton, known as the “Godfather of AI,” is urging the British government to enforce a universal basic income (UBI) to cope with the impact of AI technology. Universal basic income is a social welfare system in which the government provides every citizen with a standard minimum income. These payments are unconditional and transferred to citizens on a regular basis without any pre-qualification. The concept is in keeping with the Marxist ideal of wealth redistribution and has been proposed by socialist figures such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). Hinton told BBC Newsnight that a universal basic income...

    If Donald Trump wins a second term in the White House in November, NATO may fall apart, a recent wargame found. As a presidential candidate, Trump has threatened to quit NATO unless European allies contribute more, and should he carry it out Europe may decide to go it alone on defense, the game suggests. "A US policy of frustrating NATO has the potential to cause the alliance to collapse, with the EU as a candidate for eventually replacing NATO's ultimate function — defending Europe from Russia," wrote Finley Grimble, the British defense expert who designed and ran the game. The...

While AI could be a powerful personal assistant, for example, it could also represent a threat to our livelihoods and even our lives.The various existential risks that an advanced AI poses means the technology should be guided by ethical frameworks and humanity's best interests, says researcher and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) member Nell Watson.In "Taming the Machine" (Kogan Page, 2024), Watson explores how humanity can wield the...
