So, Zuck's statement still resembles in my ear where he says "we really care about your #privacy". And then this. When does this race to the bottom ever end? #Facebook stored hundreds of millions of passwords in plaintext for 7 years. Sounds so amateurish. https://t.co/kl4TyhIKam pic.twitter.com/YCFqRPac6N— André Cramer 🇪🇺 (@TheAndreCramer) March 22, 2019
Awesome #AI #innovation. At #GTC2019 #NVIDIA shows an image creator based on generative adversarial networks that in just a few clicks sketches nearly photorealistic images. This MSPaint of AI age turns a couple of lines into gorgeous mountaintop sunsets. https://t.co/8e0T6iVje5 pic.twitter.com/9iID5lDrdl— André Cramer 🇪🇺 (@TheAndreCramer) March 22, 2019
That's some radical #innovation. And consider: it's #Microsoft, not some nerdy lab. They just booted up the first de facto #DNA drive for storing data. It's a device that automatically encodes digital information into DNA and back to bits again. Wow! https://t.co/EjdpQU0nlv pic.twitter.com/GYqq6aNyme— André Cramer 🇪🇺 (@TheAndreCramer) March 23, 2019
Remember last month's #OpenAI #GP2 #AI scary-good copy text creation tool? #MIT, #IBMWatson & #Harvard folks have developed a new tool called #GLTR to detect such AI-generated text. Uses same models as GP2 to predict if the author is an AI. Much needed! https://t.co/lIStQRAP44 pic.twitter.com/A2A7Pte2PW— André Cramer 🇪🇺 (@TheAndreCramer) March 19, 2019
