Can’t believe its 27 March. This year has gone way too quickly.
You may have seen some of the fake images generated over the last few weeks, including this really incredible one of the Pope, it seems like quite a big jump in quality over the last little while, something covered in the Washington Post. Worrying as this is Bloomberg then have a piece on how video may be the next frontier.
The Guardian has another spin around the AI/bias roundabout, with a story on how AI hiring algorithms could lead to, or solve, bias in recruitment…
WIRED has an interesting piece on learning from public health to guide AI regulation, although a lot of the issues raised – propaganda warning – may be addressed through a human rights based approach to AI.
Speaking of propaganda I’ve co-authored a piece on the chilling effect of surveillance, linked below (open access). This is the first in a series of pieces looking at the chilling effect of surveillance, and what it means for human rights protections. I think this is really exciting work, and something that will hopefully play a role in properly examining the ‘potential harm’ side of the equation vis-a-vis AI impact assessments.
Hope ye all have a great week, thanks as ever to Sarah Zarmsky, and since its Monday morning, I’ll leave ye with ‘On a Monday Morning‘.
