University of Washington: Allen School and AI2 researchers unveil Grover, a new tool for fighting fake news in the age of AI

University of Washington: Allen School and AI2 researchers unveil Grover, a new tool for fighting fake news in the age of AI. “To fight the emerging threat of fake news authored by AI, a team of researchers at the Allen School and Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2) developed Grover, a new model for detecting neural fake news more reliably than existing technologies can.”

Computer Weekly: Blockchain and deep neural networks show digital archive promise

Computer Weekly: Blockchain and deep neural networks show digital archive promise. “Researchers from the University of Surrey are set to present a paper in June at the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition conference in Los Angeles, which describes a way to preserve the integrity of video, artificial intelligence (AI) models and digital archives.”

Engadget: MIT finds smaller neural networks that are easier to train

Engadget: MIT finds smaller neural networks that are easier to train. “Despite all the advancements in artificial intelligence, most AI-based products still rely on ‘deep neural networks,’ which are often extremely large and prohibitively expensive to train. Researchers at MIT are hoping to change that. In a paper presented today, the researchers reveal that neural networks contain ‘subnetworks’ that are up to 10 times smaller and could be cheaper and faster to teach.”

Northeastern University: It’s Time To Study Machines The Way We Study Humans

Northeastern University: It’s Time To Study Machines The Way We Study Humans. “Artificial intelligence and machine learning models can be found in almost every aspect of modern life. News-ranking algorithms determine which information we see online, compatibility algorithms influence the people we date, and ride-hailing algorithms affect the way we travel. Despite the pervasiveness of these life-changing algorithms, we don’t have a universal understanding of how they work or how they’re shaping our world. So, a team of researchers—including two Northeastern University professors—says that it’s time to study artificially intelligent machines the way we study humans.”

Red Ferret: Death Metal AI – this neural network wants to rock

Red Ferret: Death Metal AI – this neural network wants to rock. “We’ve seen a lot of interesting AI projects from romance novels to scripts. For your music fans there’s a new bot on the horizon. Relentless Doppelganger is the Death Metal rocker a neural network dreamed up. And it’s streaming 24/7.”

The Register: We know you all want to shove AI where the sun doesn’t shine. And that’s exactly where it’s going – detecting prostate cancer

The Register: We know you all want to shove AI where the sun doesn’t shine. And that’s exactly where it’s going – detecting prostate cancer . “A team of radiologists at the University of California, Los Angeles, built a convolutional neural network to analyse MRI scans of male nether regions and detect signs of the cancer. These types scans are a lot less invasive method than doctors delicately delving in to collect tissue for biopsies.”
