AI and ML are just as smart as the training data, which for large sets of data usually gives biased or outright results

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/06/15

Kris phrases a thought that has been lingering in my head for decades: [Archive.is] Kristian Köhntopp on Twitter: “”AI” ist nicht intelligent, sondern reproduziert das Trainingsmaterial und die Vorurteile darin. Es handelt sich um automatisierten Aberglauben und Verschwörungsquatsch. Je größer das Netzwerk, um so wirrer.” / Twitter

Basically there are two kinds of AI:

  • a bunch of if/then/else statements
  • a model based engine that is as bad as it’s training data; the larger the set of training data, the worse it gets.

A few of the images in the excellent thread that Kris quoted (more in the [Wayback/archive.is] PDF): [Archive.is] Owain Evans on Twitter: “Paper: New benchmark testing if models like GPT3 are truthful (= avoid generating false answers). We find that models fail and they imitate human misconceptions. Larger models (with more params) do worse! PDF: https://t.co/3zo3PNKrR5 with S.Lin (Oxford) + J.Hilton (OpenAI)… “

Need to check if “PrivacyNator” is already out: a local TensorFlowJS app that blurs your screen when you are not behind it

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/11/16

Interesting app that hopefully does get published: “PrivacyNator”.

So I need to check if anything new has turned up on [Wayback] “PrivacyNator” – Google Search.

Some links related to Apple’s NeuralHash algorithm, as it was reverse engineered and collisions can be generated so abuse with pictures matching sensitive hashes can be performed

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/08/24

Last week, I wrote [Archive.is] Jeroen Wiert Pluimers on Twitter: “Apple’s NeuralHash algorithm for automagically reporting sensitive images from iOS devices has not only been reverse engineered, but also collisions can now be generated. Now just wait for abuse of innocent pictures matching sensitive hashes. … “

Below, for my link archive, some relevant links on this:

The state of text reading robots a few years back; I doubt it has improved much since: AI often still is Algorithmic Irresponsibility

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/06/09

The state of text reading robots and AI a few years back; I doubt it has improved much since: [WayBack] Thread by @JFBonnefon: “It’s a big day today: I had a scientific manuscript rejected by a robot. Thread. The bot detected ❝a high level of textual overlap with previous literature […]”.

Basically, it detected all duplicates to be in non-relevant pieces.

Via: [WayBack] Michael Bolton on Twitter: “Thread. Machines read strings. They don’t understand context or intentions. This is how AI comes to stand for Anti-Intellectualism and Algorithmic Irresponsibility (the latter coined by @jamesmarcusbach).… “

Although I could not find that reference through [Archive.is] “Algorithmic Irresponsibility” – Google Search. I could only find two:

Google’s AI can create better machine-learning code than the researchers who made it

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/10/17

[WayBack] Google’s AI can create better machine-learning code than the researchers who made it:

Google’s AutoML project has yielded significant advances in the ability for machine-learning systems to replicate and improve AI code.
