Microsoft Launches AI Chatbot for Spies

Microsoft unveiled a GPT-4-based AI model tailored for U.S. intelligence agencies, providing secure, offline analysis of classified data. The system, disconnected from the internet, is designed to prevent data leaks while helping with top-secret information. However, the model may still confabulate and produce inaccuracies due to inherent limitations in AI language models.

ChatGPT-Like AI Accelerates Humanoid Robot Development

Generative AI similar to ChatGPT is accelerating humanoid robot research in China. LimX Dynamics predicts that robots capable of factory work and household help may be available in five to seven years. While AI enhances task planning and decision-making, mechanical limitations still prevent full replacement of human labor. Costs are expected to drop with mass production.

Survey: AI Usage Soars Among High School Seniors

A new Art & Science Group survey reveals nearly all college-bound high school seniors are familiar with generative AI, with 69% using it, including for essays and assignments. While students are concerned about AI misinformation and cheating, many feel pressured to use it to stay competitive.

AI-Written Poetry Sparks Backlash

Conceptual poet Lillian-Yvonne Bertram faced criticism after winning a chapbook contest with a collection generated by an AI model, Warpland 2.0.

How AI is Turbocharging Israel’s Bombing of Gaza

An investigation by +972 Magazine reveals Israel’s use of AI in Gaza warfare, where systems like “Gospel” and “Lavender” mark Palestinian buildings and individuals for attack. AI outputs are treated almost like “gospel,” prioritizing speed and reducing human oversight. Critics argue these tools amplify violence instead of reducing it.

The Inventor of the Chatbot Warned Us About AI

Joseph Weizenbaum, who created the chatbot ELIZA in 1966, criticized AI’s potential to harm humanity. He opposed viewing humans as machines, fearing AI would foster harmful attachments and blind obedience. His book Computer Power and Human Reason argued for ethical limitations in technology. Despite his warnings, AI advancements today largely ignore his skepticism.

Penguin-Inspired Robot Explores Sea Using AI

The Quadroin AUV, a penguin-inspired aquatic robot, is revolutionizing underwater research. Developed by EvoLogics, this robot mimics penguin swimming and features advanced sonar and AI object recognition. It navigates up to 492 feet deep for 10 hours, transmitting data via Wi-Fi or satellite. Commercial production begins later this year.
