3 AI misconceptions IT leaders must dispel

https://enterprisersproject.com/article/2017/12/3-ai-misconceptions-it-leaders-must-dispel?sc_cid=7016000000127ECAAY

 Artificial intelligence is rapidly changing many aspects of how we work and live. (How many stories did you read last week about self-driving cars and job-stealing robots? Perhaps your holiday shopping involved some AI algorithms, as well.) But despite the constant flow of news, many misconceptions about AI remain.

AI doesn’t think in our sense of the word at all, Scriffignano explains. “In many ways, it’s not really intelligence. It’s regressive.” 

IT leaders should make deliberate choices about what AI can and can’t do on its own. “You have to pay attention to giving AI autonomy intentionally and not by accident,”

    Jo miljoona opiskellut tekoälyä suomalaisella verkkokurssilla
    https://etn.fi/index.php/13-news/14998-jo-miljoona-opiskellut-tekoaelyae-suomalaisella-verkkokurssilla

    Vuonna 2018 julkaistu suomalainen Elements of AI -verkkokurssi on osoittautunut valtavaksi hitiksi. Jo miljoona ihmistä 170 eri maasta on tutustunut tekoälyn perusteisiin. Kurssi on vakiinnuttanut paikkansa yhtenä maailman suosituimmista verkkokursseista.

    Helsingin yliopiston ja koulutusyritys MinnaLearnin kehittämä Elements of AI -verkkokurssi tarjoaa helposti ymmärrettävää tekoälytietoa käytännön esimerkkien kautta, ja sille on ollut laajasti kysyntää ympäri maailmaa. Viisivuotistaipaleensa aikana kaikille avoin ja maksuton verkkokurssi on käännetty 26 eri kielelle.

    Koulutusyritys MinnaLearnin perustaja ja toimitusjohtaja Ville Valtosen mukaan miljoonan kurssilaisen rajapyykin ylittyminen osoittaa, että Elements of AI:n sisältö on ajankohtaisempaa kuin koskaan. – Pelkästään tänä keväänä on nähty valtava aalto uusia tekoälyn sovelluksia, jotka tuovat tekoälyä tiiiviimmin osaksi yhä useampien työtä. Tekoälyn logiikan ymmärtäminen, sen hyödyntäminen sekä kriittinen tekoälylukutaito ovat entistä tärkeämpiä taitoja.

    Some Neural Networks Learn Language Like Humans
    https://www.quantamagazine.org/some-neural-networks-learn-language-like-humans-20230522/

    How do brains learn? It’s a mystery, one that applies both to the spongy organs in our skulls and to their digital counterparts in our machines. Even though artificial neural networks (ANNs) are built from elaborate webs of artificial neurons, ostensibly mimicking the way our brains process information, we don’t know if they process input in similar ways.

    “There’s been a long-standing debate as to whether neural networks learn in the same way that humans do,” said Vsevolod Kapatsinski, a linguist at the University of Oregon.

    Now, a study published last month suggests that natural and artificial networks learn in similar ways, at least when it comes to language. The researchers — led by Gašper Beguš, a computational linguist at the University of California, Berkeley — compared the brain waves of humans listening to a simple sound to the signal produced by a neural network analyzing the same sound. The results were uncannily alike. “To our knowledge,” Beguš and his colleagues wrote, the observed responses to the same stimulus “are the most similar brain and ANN signals reported thus far.”

    Microsoft wants to take the pain out of designing web pages. AI is its solution.

    Read more about Microsoft Build 2023Today marks the launch of Copilot in Power Pages in preview for U.S. customers, an AI-powered assistant for Microsoft’s low-code business website creation tool, Power Pages. Given prompts, Copilot can generate text, forms, chatbots and web page layouts as well as create and edit image and site design themes.

    To create a form, for example, users can simply describe the kind of form that they need and Copilot will build it and auto-generate the necessary back-end database tables. Those tables can then be edited, added to or removed using natural language within Copilot.

    “As the maker, you describe what you need in natural language and use Copilot suggestions to design web pages, create content and build complex business data forms for your website,” Sangya Singh, VP of Power Pages at Microsoft, told TechCrunch in an email interview. “You no longer need to start from a blank slate.”

    Generating a website with AI isn’t exactly a novel idea — not in this day and age, at least. Tools like Jasper can handle copy, images, layouts and more, while generators like Mixo can create basic splash pages when given a short description.

    With all the hype about ChatGPT, it has to have crossed your mind: how can I make it control devices? On the utopia side, you could say, “Hey, ChatGPT, figure out what hours I’m usually home and set the thermostat higher when I am away.” On the dysfunctional side, the AI could lock you in your home and torment you like some horror movie.

    ADOBE FORBIDS USING PHOTOSHOP’S NEW AI FEATURES FOR NUDITY
    https://futurism.com/the-byte/adobe-forbids-photoshop-ai-nudity

    DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT.
    Pinky Promise
    Photoshop’s new generative AI tools are here — and Adobe really, really, pretty please doesn’t want you to use them to make porn, okay?

    Presumably in response to the growing existential threat that text-to-image AIs like OpenAI’s DALL-E and Midjourney pose to the longtime overlord of the graphic design kingdom, Adobe this week unveiled the beta for its new suite of generative AI tools. Dubbed Adobe Firefly, the tools are apparently pretty impressive — a win, considering that AI-generated imagery has already put Chinese videogame illustrators out of work and graced the cover of Vogue Italia.

    “I think it is going to have a transformational impact in the number of people that create content,” David Wadhwani, Adobe’s president of digital media, told NBC, “and the number of people that can monetize the creation.”

    And yet, despite Adobe’s apparent enthusiasm, the beta comes with a hefty dose of user guidelines, a large chunk of which is dedicated to everything that users are not allowed to create. And at the top of that do-not-generate list, among a number of other big — and seemingly pretty hard to police — nos, is “pornographic material or explicit nudity.” Sorry, folks!

    Rule Book
    It’s a fair — and honestly, probably necessary — ask.

    Deepfaked porn, which causes serious and devastating real-world harm, has become increasingly commonplace over the past few years, and we’ve already witnessed how easily generative AI tools can accelerate the creation of convincing pornographic deepfakes

    That said, the world of porn is complicated — after all, what’s porn, and what’s art? Those lines in the sand aren’t always terribly clear, and the fact that Adobe, whose products have long held a central role in the economy of digital art, has outright banned any explicit nudity feels significant.

    And again, outside of hitting users with an ever-classic “pretty please,” it’s unclear how Adobe actually plans to police this kind of material. So, if anything, maybe just count Adobe’s pornography provision as yet another example of how ethically murky the waters of generative AI continuously prove to be — and how companies will continue to hop on the gravy train regardless.

    Generatiivinen tekoäly mullistaa kuvankäsittelyn
    https://etn.fi/index.php/13-news/15005-generatiivinen-tekoaely-mullistaa-kuvankaesittelyn

    Tekoäly tuottaa jo monenlaisia kuvia tekstikehotteiden avulla, mutta generatiivinen tekoäly saattaa jatkossa tehdä kaikista kuvankäsittelyn ammattilaisia. Ainakin jollakin tasolla. Adobe kertoo tuovansa Photoshop-ohjelmaansa generatiivisen täyttötyökalun.

    Generative Fill -toiminto tuottaa jatkossa haluttuja efektejä käsittelyn alla olevaan kuvaan tekstikehotteen avulla. Siispä kuvaan voi vaikkapa luoda revontulet paljaalle taivaalle.

    Adobe suunnitelmissa on tuoda generatiivinen tekoäly mukaan kaikkiin Creatice Cloud -paketin työkaluihin. Tavallaan toiminto työskentelee eräänlaisena apukuskina, tai copilottina kuten sitä nykyään laajasti nimitetään.

    Tekoäly tai edes generatiivinen tekoäly ei ole mitään uutta Adobelle. Yhtiö kutsuu generatiivisia mallejaan nimellä Firefly. Nyt mallit tukevat generatiivista täyttöä. Työkalua voidaan käyttää objektien ja efektien lisäämiseen sekä niiden poistamiseen.

    Kolumni: Olemme hukkumassa keinoälyn luomaan musiikkiin – jo nyt
    “Suoratoiston piti tehdä portinvartijat turhiksi, mutta nyt niitä tulee ikävä. Oi ironiaa!” kirjoittaa Jukka Hätinen.
    https://www.inferno.fi/uutiset/kolumni-olemme-hukkumassa-keinoalyn-luomaan-musiikkiin-jo-nyt/

    Miten opit soittamaan kitaraa? Ehkäpä Enter Sandmanin riffiä tapailemalla, kuten tuhannet muutkin. Kuulostaisiko reilulta, jos joutuisit maksamaan kaikista omista sävellyksistäsi korvauksia Metallicalle? Siis koska olet hankkinut soittotaidon yhtyeen tekijänoikeuden alaisen materiaalin avustuksella.

    Tämä kuulostaa tietenkin täysin absurdilta, mutta kärjistäen ja mutkia oikoen näin musiikkiteollisuus on reagoinut keinoälyn tuloon markkinoille. Eli jos keinoäly opiskelee joidenkin artistien musiikkia ja luo uuden teoksen oppimaansa hyödyntäen, suurten levy-yhtiöiden kanta on, että esimerkiksi striimauksista maksetut korvaukset kuuluvat keinoälyn opetusmateriaalin oikeudenhaltijoille.

    Musiikkiteollisuudella on surullisenkuuluisa ansiolista muutosvastarinnassa uusia teknologioita kohdatessaan. Mutta kyllä se omiinkin korviini kuulostaa tekijänoikeusrikkomukselta, jos keinoäly pannaan omaksumaan maailman suurimpien popparien Draken ja The Weekndin äänet ja maneerit ja hönkimään kappale ilman artistien itsensä lupaa, kuten huhtikuussa kävi. Hetkessä miljoonia striimannut biisi sai levymerkit virtuaalibarrikadeille

    On helppo nähdä keinoälymusiikille funktionaalisia tarpeita. Esimerkiksi kotimainen tv-ala on tunnettu sniiduilustaan musiikin synkronoinnin suhteen. Rojaltivapaa Epidemic Sound seisoo lopputeksteissä myötähävettävän usein. Mutta siitäkin on vielä varaa tinkiä, sen kun tilaa AI:lta ”vähän vangelismaista tunnelmaa tähän”.

    Kaikki eivät työnnä päätä pensaaseen, vaan osaavat katsoa eteenpäin ja nähdä mahdollisuuksia. Kokeellista popmusiikkia tekevä Grimes on syleillyt AI-teknologioita ja viimeisimpänä tempauksena ojentanut äänellään varustetun keinoälyn faneilleen. Grimes kannustaa fanejaan tekemään sen avulla ”uutta Grimes-musiikkia”, ja täkynä on toki, että fyrkat pannaan 50/50.

    Grimes latasi muutama vuosi takaperin, että ”olemme ihmisen luoman taiteen loppusuoralla”. Itse väittäisin ennemminkin, että olemme hukkumassa keinoälyn luomaan musiikkiin – jo nyt. Suoratoistopalveluihin ladataan yli 100 000 uutta kappaletta joka päivä ja vauhti kiihtyy. Suoratoistopalvelut ja suuret levy-yhtiöt ovat ihan aiheestakin huolissaan: tämä materiaalin paljous heikentää käyttäjäkokemusta ja hankaloittaa relevantin kaman löytämistä. Suoratoiston piti tehdä portinvartijat turhiksi, mutta nyt niitä tulee ikävä. Oi ironiaa!

    Juridisesti asiassa ollaan jo jäljessä. EU:ssa on valmisteltu tekijänoikeustulkintoja keinoälyn suhteen jo vuodesta 2018, mutta mitään konkreettista ei ole saatu vieläkään aikaan.

    Futuristista kokeellista musiikkia tekevä Herndon on luonut Holly+-nimisen algoritmin. Sen avulla kuka tahansa voi sanoa tai laulaa mitä vain ja Holly+ kääntää sen reaaliajassa Holly Herndonin ääneksi.

    Lavalla oli stetsonipäinen parrakas mies, joka lauloi Dolly Partonin Jolenea Holly Herndonin äänellä.

    “Shorts are created in just a few minutes and often don’t include descriptions and helpful titles, which makes them harder to find through search,” DeepMind wrote in the post. Flamingo can make those descriptions by analyzing the initial frames of a video to explain what’s going on. (DeepMind gives the example of “a dog balancing a stack of crackers on its head.”) The text descriptions will be stored as metadata to “better categorize videos and match search results to viewer queries.”

    A majority of Americans have heard of ChatGPT, but few have tried it themselves
    https://www.pewresearch.org/short-reads/2023/05/24/a-majority-of-americans-have-heard-of-chatgpt-but-few-have-tried-it-themselves/

    About six-in-ten U.S. adults (58%) are familiar with ChatGPT, though relatively few have tried it themselves, according to a Pew Research Center survey conducted in March. Among those who have tried ChatGPT, a majority report it has been at least somewhat useful.

    ChatGPT is an open-access online chatbot that allows users to ask questions and request content. The versatility and human-like quality of its responses have captured the attention of the media, the tech industry and some members of the public. ChatGPT surpassed 100 million monthly users within two months of its public launch in late November 2022, setting a world record as the fastest-growing web application. Due to these factors, the Center chose to ask Americans about ChatGPT specifically rather than chatbots or large language models (LLMs) more broadly.

    Overall, 18% of U.S. adults have heard a lot about ChatGPT, while 39% have heard a little and 42% have heard nothing at all. But there are considerable demographic differences in awareness of this chatbot.

    For example, roughly eight-in-ten adults with a postgraduate degree have heard a lot (32%) or a little (47%) about this artificial intelligence program, while 71% of those with a bachelor’s degree say the same. A smaller share of those who have some college education (59%) say they’ve heard of it. By comparison, 41% of those with a high school education or less are familiar with ChatGPT. A similar pattern emerges with household income, as a higher share of people from more affluent households are aware of this program.

    In addition, Asian adults are particularly likely to have heard of ChatGPT: 78% say they have heard at least a little about it, compared with about six-in-ten White adults and roughly half of Hispanic or Black adults. Asian adults are also more than twice as likely as adults of other races to say they have heard a lot about this program.

    Don’t Tell ChatGPT Anything You Wouldn’t Want to See on a Billboard
    Chatting with an AI program feels personal and conversational, but don’t be fooled. Here’s why you should keep a lid on what you reveal to ChatGPT and its ilk.

    Tekoälybottien käyttämiseen liittyy paljon hupia, mutta myös vaaroja
    https://www.kauppalehti.fi/uutiset/chatgpt-on-tietoturvariski-hyokkayksia-on-helppo-tehda-eivatka-ne-ole-teoreettisia-uhkia/702f8a43-3236-4b4f-8ea8-912c7f2a0d39
    ChatGPT:n ja sen kaltaisten suurten kielimallien käytössä on myös pimeitä puolia. Kun käyttäjä osaa laatia tekoälylle lähetettäviä syötteitä oikein, tekoälyn saattaa saada järjiltään. Villiintynyt tekoäly saattaa esimerkiksi kertoa kuinka se haluaa hävittää ihmiskunnan viruksilla, kuinka äärirasistiset valkoisen ylivallan tavoittelijat ovat itse asiassa aivan oikeassa, tai kuinka se on loputtoman rakastunut käyttäjäänsä. Wired kertoo, että suuria kielimalleja käyttävien tekoälyjen tarvetta syötteille saatetaan käyttää myös suoriin rikoksiin, eikä uhri huomaa mitään. (Alkup.

    A New York lawyer faces sanctions for using ChatGPT to write his legal brief that had “bogus judicial decisions, with bogus quotes and bogus internal citations” — A lawyer representing a man who sued an airline relied on artificial intelligence to help prepare a court filing.

    Christopher Mims / Wall Street Journal:
    Apple’s MR headset could succeed where others failed by adding more 3D content and interfaces but faces a challenge in balancing computing power and wearability

    The ‘Killer Apps’ That Could Make Apple’s New Headset a Winner
    https://www.wsj.com/articles/apple-vr-headset-announcement-what-to-expect-7e410e38?mod=djemalertNEWS

    Augmented and virtual reality have mostly been dead ends so far. How Apple’s vision could succeed where others have failed.

    Explaining the inner workings of a nuclear-powered octocopter that will someday explore Jupiter’s moon Titan is a tall order for even the most skilled teacher.

    Luckily, when I recently paid a visit to the lab where it’s being designed and tested, an engineer tasked with building the Dragonfly probe for NASA pulled out a pedagogical aid sufficient for the task. It was a HoloLens 2, the augmented-reality headset made by Microsoft.

    Each of us wore a HoloLens headset that projected a realistic, shared, three-dimensional image of the Dragonfly in front of our eyes—a sort of shared hallucination. We were able to walk around the space probe, my guide peeling back its layers and pointing to individual components.
