Tesla asks to dismiss class action lawsuit against Autopilot
Tesla filed a motion to dismiss a class action lawsuit accusing a manufacturer of false advertising for autopilot.
In September, the owners of robocars turned to the court and said that the company and its head, Elon Musk, are misleading the public about the capabilities of Autopilot and Full Self-Driving systems. Since 2016, they’ve been touting the technology as “completely or almost” ready-made autopilot, but it doesn’t work or doesn’t exist, the document says.
Tesla responded that the failure to achieve a long-term ambitious goal is not fraudulent. The suit of the owners of robocars demonstrates the continuous improvement of technology through software updates to achieve greater and better autonomy capabilities in the future, the company added.
According to the manufacturer, from the very beginning, Tesla made it clear that a “significant time gap” was needed before regulators would approve true self-driving.
Study: Robots are replacing workers in China
Industrial robots push out employees, affect wage cuts and reduce the birth rate in China. This conclusion was reached by a group of international scientists.
According to them, up to 77% of jobs in China are amenable to automation. As an example, they cited Foxconn, which replaced more than 400,000 employees with smart machines between 2012 and 2016.
The researchers also found that automation reduces hourly wages, but does not affect workers’ annual income.
According to the document, the increase in the number of industrial robots does not affect the families of employees of enterprises. However, scientists found a 1-2% decrease in the birth rate and a 10% increase in investment in children’s education.
The researchers believe that without job creation, automation will lead to inequality and social unrest.
DeepMind taught AI to play “Diplomacy”
DeepMind Researchers taught AI agents communicate and agree on joint plans in the Diplomacy tabletop strategy.
The scientists considered two protocols: mutual offer and offer-choice. The systems use algorithms that identify profitable trades by simulating the future development of the game under various contracts.
Agents able to communicate are vastly superior to basic bots that cannot communicate, according to the researchers.
Google Lets Inject AI Models into Spreadsheets Without Writing Code
Google introduced Simple ML add-on for developing AI models in Spreadsheets.
According to the company, users do not require knowledge of machine learning or programming experience. They need to create a spreadsheet with data, select a task to perform, and run Simple ML. The system will automatically train one or more relevant models.
While the tool can create algorithms to fill in empty table fields or identify cells that contain erroneous data.
Stack Overflow banned ChatGPT chatbot responses from posting
Stack Overflow developer platform banned post AI-generated responses.
According to the moderators, users bombarded the forum with thousands of phrases created using the OpenAI ChatGPT chat bot. While many of the answers “looked useful,” they often turned out to be wrong. This harmed the site and programmers, the company noted.
Stack Overflow added that the block is temporary, and the final decision will be made “after some time” after internal discussions and consultations with the community.
Google to shut down web version of Duplex AI service
Until the end of 2022, Google will close a web version of the AI service for automatic orders by phone Duplex.
The system allowed the Assistant to navigate the sites on its own. With Duplex, an assistant could buy movie tickets, check a user in for a flight, or view discounts on potentially interesting products.
According to TechCrunch, the closure of the web version of the service is likely due to the cost of training AI to analyze pages. Also, if administrators prevent search robots from indexing the content of sites, the performance of Duplex on the Internet will be significantly reduced.
Jidu to start mass production of robotic vehicles in 2023
In 2023, Chinese automaker Jidu will launch serial production of robocars with voice control Robo-01.
The drone is equipped with a radar, two lidars, 12 ultrasonic sensors and 12 high-resolution cameras. Voice recognition is provided by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8295 chip.
The cost of the drone will be about $55,000.
Adobe Stock allows sale of AI-generated images
Adobe Stock Photo Bank will start sell images generated by AI algorithms.
Users will be able to send images created using neural networks like Stable Diffusion and DALL-E to the marketplace with a corresponding mark. Buyers who encounter problems with the law will be reimbursed by the company for possible damages.
Contributors must verify their rights to the images they sell. They may not generate illustrations with specific people, places, or properties, or imitate the styles of artists without their permission.
Startup develops AI to expose texts created by algorithms
Employees of the startup Originality AI taught AI to detect text written by GPT algorithms.
They tested the finished tool on 20 articles created using the GPT-3 and GPT-3.5 models, as well as the ChatGPT chat bot. Each text was about 500 characters long and covered a variety of topics, including news, sports, and fun facts.
As a result, the system showed an average detection accuracy of 99.41%.
FIFA+ introduces AR player tracking on the pitch
To the FIFA+ app added AR-function of tracking the statistics of the players of the World Cup on the field.
The Stadium Experience allows fans to view VAR replays from multiple angles. Also, when pointing the smartphone camera at the player, the function will show the speed of his movement and an individual heat map.
The option is only available to fans attending matches in person.
