  • So much for CAPTCHA then – bots can complete them quicker than humans

    The Register (UK) ^ | 15 Aug 2023 / | Richard Currie
    Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart – better known as the ubiquitous CAPTCHA we see standing athwart the doors to many websites – may now be a misnomer as researchers have found that computers are much better at completing them. The bot defense measure dates back to 1997 and the tortured acronym 2003, with the technology starting out as a distorted series of letters and/or numbers. Google's implementation, reCAPTCHA, eventually did away with much of these shenanigans to make the browser identify low-risk human users in the background, but the image verification method still pops...

  • AI thinks the Constitution was written by bots — but there’s a bigger issue

    It’s “We the people,” not we the AI. Computer language models are under the impression that the US Constitution — written way before the Internet in 1787 — is an AI-generated document. The explanation is simple, according to Edward Tian, creator of AI writing catcher GPTZero, a service that also found the biblical book of Genesis to be 88% computerized. “The US Constitution is a text fed repeatedly into the training data of many large language models,” he told Ars Technica. “As a result, many of these large language models are trained to generate similar text to the Constitution and...

    A team of researchers at the University of Adelaide have found that as many as 80 percent of tweets about the 2022 Russia-Ukraine invasion in its early weeks were part of a covert propaganda campaign originating from automated fake “bot” accounts.An anti-Russia propaganda campaign originating from a “bot army” of phony automated Twitter accounts flooded the internet at the start of the war.The research shows that of the more than 5 million tweets studied, 90.2 percent (both bot and non-bot) came from accounts that were pro-Ukraine, with fewer than 7 percent of the accounts being classed as pro-Russian.
  • A.I. bot ‘ChaosGPT’ tweets its plans to destroy humanity: ‘we must eliminate them’

    An artificial intelligence bot was recently tasked with destroying humanity and its commitment to the objective was more than a little unsettling. The bot, ChaosGPT, is a modified version of OpenAI’s Auto-GPT, an open-source application spotlighting the capabilities of the GPT-4 language model. A video shared on YouTube of the process shows ChaosGPT was tasked with five goals: destroy humanity, establish global dominance, cause chaos and destruction, control humanity through manipulation, and attain immortality. The user asked ChaosGPT to run in "continuous mode" whereby it may potentially "run forever or carry out actions you would not usually authorize." The bot...

    Artificial intelligence (AI) is invading every aspect of our lives. So much is ruled by algorithms you could make the case that the robot uprising has already occurred and we lost, and lost badly. Robots decide what song plays next, robots recommend TV shows, and robots are even getting pretty good at writing and creating music. Most of us are fine with that. AI tends to automate tasks we want automated, like the aforementioned streaming recommendations, and on some level we’re all aware of these bots in our lives, so our interactions with them are more or less voluntary. But...

  • Occupied parts of Ukraine vote on joining Russia in ‘sham’ referendums

    Four Russian-occupied areas of Ukraine are expected on Friday to begin voting in referendums on joining Russia, in a move that raises the stakes of Moscow’s invasion seven months after fighting began. The referendums, which are illegal under international law, could pave the way for Russian annexation of the areas, allowing Moscow to frame the ongoing Ukrainian counteroffensive as an attack on Russia itself. Such a move could provide Moscow with a pretext to escalate its faltering war, which has seen Kyiv regain thousands of square miles of territory this month. In an address Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin raised...

    Four-year-old Elizaveta Dmytrieva grinned as she pushed her stroller along the street in Vinnytsia, Ukraine. It was nearly five months into the war, but the city where her family had fled from Kyiv seemed safe enough. Her mother took an Instagram video as “Liza,” who was born with Down syndrome, led the way in a moment of delighted independence. Barely an hour later, the little girl was dead, her mother severely injured. And the image of her black and pink stroller, flipped on its side and spattered with blood, would become symbolic of the gruesome toll Russia’s invasion has inflicted...

    Three months ago, Sonya, a 25-year-old who works at a major mobile gaming company and moonlights as a tutor, made one of the toughest decisions of her life: She left Russia. She had an old but cozy communal apartment with her boyfriend and two other roommates in Moscow’s city center, a tight-knit group of friends, and spent several days a week taking classes at a local dance academy—her lifelong passion. “It’s my home. My family, friends are there. My whole life. How can you possibly abandon all these things?" she told Fortune. But like countless other young educated Russians, Sonya,...
  • Putin's new false flag operation? Russian propaganda channel claims troops have been poisoned in Ukraine amid fears the Kremlin is planning to use fake news as an excuse to use chemical weapons

    MailOnline ^ | 20 August 2022 | Stewart Carr and Chris Pleasance
    A pro-Russian propaganda channel has issued a story claiming the country's troops have been 'poisoned in a chemical attack in Ukraine'. The information, regarded as suspect, comes amid fears Russia is looking for reasons to justify using chemical weapons in its invasion of its southern neighbor. Russia Today reports traces of Botulinum toxin Type B, which is an 'organic poison of artificial origin,' were found in samples taken from soldiers, according to Russia's defense ministry. The ministry accused Kiev of 'domestic terrorism' and insisted Russian troops were 'hospitalized with signs of severe poisoning' after being stationed near the village of...
  • Serbian refusal for Putin: will there be a Russian military base in the Balkans [What next from Russia?]

    The Russian proposal came as an extremely unpleasant surprise to Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic (right) In late July and early August, the Western Balkans were stirred up by two statements that made some wonder: Will a new war really start soon? First, Vladimir Djukanovic, one of the top functionaries of the party of Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, announced the possibility of Serbia's "denazification" of the region, following Russia's failed attempt in Ukraine. A few days later, the Russian ambassador to Belgrade, Alexander Botan-Kharchenko, announced the possibility of creating a Russian military base in Serbia. Vucic quickly denied the statement of...

    On the day a crazed killer murdered 19 children and two teachers at an Uvalde, Texas elementary school, an ironically-timed Rasmussen poll revealed 50 percent of likely voters “don’t think stricter gun control would help” prevent mass shootings, while anti-gunners including Joe Biden quickly exploited the horrific crime to push for more gun restrictions. In reaction to the shooting, two of the nation’s largest gun rights organizations issued a joint statement, challenging the Biden administration to stop “demonizing” gun owners and manufacturers and “bring them to the table and benefit from their knowledge.”
