Brain implants could be the next computer mouse

In 2016, Elon Musk started a company called Neuralink that began developing a neural “sewing machine” to implant a new type of threaded electrode. What’s followed has been a huge influx of investment in brain interfaces of all kinds, including EEG readers, magnetic headbands, and new types of high-density implanted probes capable of measuring signals from tens of thousands of neurons at a time. “If you can’t beat em, join em,” Musk typed into Twitter in July 2020, describing the phrase as the “N…

ChatGPT: Optimizing Language Models for Dialogue

resultWorkerErr := make(chan error) defer close(resultWorkerErr) go func() { defer cancel() resultWorkerErr <- b.resultWorker(ctx) }() err := b.worker(ctx) cancel() if err == nil { return <-resultWorkerErr } return multierror.Append(err, <-resultWorkerErr) It’s difficult to say what’s wrong with the code without more context. Sincerely, [Your Name] Methods We trained this model using Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback (RLHF), using the same methods as InstructGPT, but with slight differe…

Elon Musk’s Neuralink is neuroscience theater

Those are just a few of the applications that Elon Musk and employees at his four-year-old neuroscience company Neuralink believe electronic brain-computer interfaces will one day bring about. But in a “product update” streamed over YouTube on Friday, Musk, also the founder of SpaceX and Tesla Motors, joined staffers wearing black masks to discuss the company’s work toward an affordable, reliable brain implant that Musk believes billions of consumers will clamor for in the future. Pigs in the ma…

England and Wales now minority Christian countries, census reveals

England and Wales are now minority Christian countries, according to the 2021 census, which also shows that Leicester and Birmingham have become the first UK cities to have “minority majorities”. No state in Europe has such a religious set-up as we do in terms of law and public policy, while at the same time having such a non-religious population.” The slump in religion and emergence of minority ethnic populations as a combined majority in whole conurbations in England and Wales is revealed in d…

A.I.-Generated Art Is Already Transforming Creative Work

Only a few months old, apps like DALL-E 2, Midjourney and Stable Diffusion are changing how filmmakers, interior designers and other creative professionals do their jobs….

Flooded with AI-generated images, some art communities ban them completely

Enlarge / An assortment of robot portraits generated by Stable Diffusion as found on the Lexica search engine.
In banning art created through image synthesis in its Art Portal, Newgrounds wrote, “We want to keep the focus on art made by people and not have the Art Portal flooded with computer-generated art.”
Fur Affinity cited concerns about the ethics of how image synthesis models learn from existing artwork, writing, “Our goal is to support artists and their content.
Part of a wider art eth…

Avoid Diluting Democracy by Algorithms

It is crucial that research on artificial intelligence (AI) and governance takes democracy as a concept seriously and avails itself of the rich and long history of democracy research from political philosophy. Doing so means that the prospects of using AI to support and engender democratic decision making could become more than word play, while avoiding playing light and loose with a key component of modern liberal societies that is arguably already under pressure and is not in need of undermini…
