On Artificial Intelligence: A new round of industrial revolution in artificial intelligence AI

Artificial intelligence is the current cutting-edge technology of technology, which will bring a new round of industrial revolution. Every big scientific and technological progress will change people’s lifestyle and habits, and artificial intelligence is no exception.

Today, social technology is rapidly developed, and the technology innovation has a new month. The sum of the human invention created by the human invention creation ratio of human invention in modern times. Scientific and technological progress brings people a longer life, richer food, larger living space. From the ocean to the land to the sky, even outer space, every place has technology power. We must respect science, but we also think about science.

Artificial intelligence also known as machine intelligence, it is a comprehensive discipline that has developed by computer science, control, informationism, neurophysiology, psychology, linguistics and other disciplines. From the perspective of the computer application system, artificial intelligence is how to create a man-made intelligent machine or intelligent system to simulate the ability of human intelligence activities to extend people’s intelligence.

Since the 1990s, with the development of hardware and software, the computer’s computing capacity has grown in an exponential level, while network technology is booming, ensuring that computers have sufficient conditions to run some requirement to be higher artificial intelligence software, and now Artificial intelligence has the basis for more realistic applications. At present, all countries in the world are investing a large number of human resources resources to study artificial intelligence.

The development direction of artificial intelligence and the impact on human beings

The development of technology is always more than people’s imagination. From some science fiction movies, some prospective research, we can know that future artificial intelligence may develop: fuzzy treatment, parallelization, neural network, and machine emotions. At present, artificial intelligence is a breakthrough, learning and associative function is being studied. The next step is to imitate the fuzzy treatment function of human right brains and the parallelization of the entire brain. Artificial neural network is a new field of future artificial intelligence applications, and future intelligent computers may be a combination of artificial neural networks that act as a host. Studies have shown that emotions are part of intelligence, rather than intelligent phase separation, so the next breakthrough in artificial intelligence may be to give computer emotional capabilities. Emotional Ability is critical to the natural exchange of computers and people.

Artificial intelligence has been in front of computer technology, the theory and discovery of artificial intelligence research to a large extent, will determine the development direction of computer technology. Today, there have been many outcomes of artificial intelligence research to enter people’s daily lives. In the future, the development of artificial intelligence technology will bring greater impact on people’s lives, work and education.

Watch: Bangladesh fans taunt Shaheen Afridi with ‘Matthew Wade’ chants, PAK pacer responds with fifer

Pakistan pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi responded to ‘Mathew Wade’ taunts from the Bangladesh fans by taking a five-wicket haul wicket on the fourth day of the First Test played at Chattogram.

The incident took place on Day 3 of the ongoing Test when Afridi dived to save a boundary, a section of the crowd reminded him of Wade’s hat-trick of sixes, which was caught on the mic.

The left-arm quick from Pakistan was taken to the cleaners by Australia’s Matthew Wade during their T20 World Cup semi-final clash, earlier this month.

Shaheen ended up having the last laugh over as he made full use of new ball and dismissed Shadman Islam and Najmul Shanto in the space of three deliveries. The Pakistan quick later added the wicket of Saif Hassan with a caught and bowled off a meanly directed bouncer. On Day 4, he added two more wickets in his kitty to complete his fourth five-wicket haul in Test cricket.

The 21-year-old returned with an impressive bowling figure of 5/32 in Bangladesh’s second innings and restricted the hosts to 157.

Afridi, playing in his 20th Test match has a stellar record in the game longer format. The young speedster has bagged 86 wickets in 20 matches for Pakistan.

Yasir hurt, Bangladesh extends lead to 200 over Pakistan

Yasir Ali had to be replaced by a concussion substitute after after being hit on the helmet before Bangladesh was bowled out for 157 after the lunch on day four.

Liton Das, who scored 114 in the first innings, scored a feisty 59 after combining with Yasir in a 47-run stand.

For Pakistan, Shaheen Shah Afridi (5/32), Sajid Khan (3/32) and Hasan Ali (2/52) shared the spoils.

Pakistan needs 201 runs to go 1-0 up in the two-match Test series.

Head of Instagram agrees to testify as Congress probes app’s effects on young people

Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram, has agreed for the first time to testify before Congress, as bipartisan anger mounts over harms to young people from the app.

Mosseri is expected to appear before a Senate panel during the week of Dec. 6 as part of a series of hearings on protecting children online, said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., who will lead the hearing.

Mosseri’s appearance follows hearings this year with Antigone Davis, global head of safety for Meta, the parent company of Instagram and Facebook, and with Frances Haugen, a former Facebook employee turned whistleblower. Haugen’s revelations about the social networking company, particularly those about Facebook and Instagram’s research into its effects on some teenagers and young girls, have spurred criticism, inquiries from politicians, and investigations by regulators.

In September, Davis told Congress the company disputed the premise that Instagram was harmful for teenagers and noted that the leaked research did not have causal data. But after Haugen’s testimony last month, Blumenthal wrote a letter to Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg suggesting that his company had “provided false or inaccurate testimony to me regarding attempts to internally conceal its research.”

Blumenthal asked that Zuckerberg or Mosseri testify in front of the consumer protection subcommittee of the Senate’s Commerce Committee to set the record straight.

“He’s the top guy at Instagram, and the whole nation is asking about why Instagram and other tech platforms have created so much danger and damage by driving toxic content to children with these immensely powerful algorithms,” said Blumenthal, who chairs the subcommittee. “The hearing will be critically significant in guiding us to develop laws that can have an impact on making platforms safer.”

Dani Lever, a Meta spokesperson, said in a statement: “We continue to work with the committee to find a date for Adam to testify on the important steps Instagram is taking.”

Blumenthal said he would question Mosseri about how Instagram’s algorithms can send children into dangerous rabbit holes. Since the subcommittee began its series of hearings, lawmakers have heard from hundreds of parents and children who have shared personal anecdotes, including stories of how posts on fitness devolved into recommendations for content related to extreme dieting, eating disorders and self-harm.

Blumenthal said he would seek a commitment from Mosseri to make Instagram’s ranking and recommendation decisions transparent to the public and to experts who can study how the app amplifies harmful content. Blumenthal said that executives at Snap, TikTok and YouTube who testified in a previous hearing have committed to algorithmic transparency.

While Zuckerberg has become accustomed to being hauled in front of US lawmakers, this will be the first time Mosseri will testify to them under oath. A trusted lieutenant to Zuckerberg who was chosen to lead Instagram in 2018, Mosseri has become the photo-sharing app’s public face, hosting regular video announcements about new features and appearing on morning television shows.

In September, before Davis’ Senate hearing, Mosseri appeared on NBC’s Today Show to announce that Instagram would pause the development of a version of the app designed for children following public backlash and renewed lawmaker interest sparked by Haugen’s leaks. BuzzFeed News first reported in March that the company was working on a version of Instagram for children under 13.

Mosseri’s scheduled appearance is the latest fallout from Haugen’s leaked files, which were first reported by The Wall Street Journal. Those documents, called The Facebook Papers, have formed the basis for multiple complaints to the Securities and Exchange Commission that Meta misled investors about its efforts to protect users.

Last week, a bipartisan group of 11 state attorneys general announced that it had opened an investigation into whether Meta had failed to protect the mental well-being of young people on its platforms, including Instagram.

MediaTek chips vulnerability that could let apps spy on users now fixed

A MediaTek vulnerability allowed apps on phones with certain MediaTek chips to listen in users without them knowing. The vulnerability could have been a serious blow to user privacy on phones running MediaTek chipsets, but thankfully the issue was fixed back in October. A report by Check Point Research via Android Police detailed the vulnerability, that is related to AI and audio-processing. It could allow apps with the right code to get access to system-level audio information that apps usually do not have access to.

This would have allowed more advanced, malicious apps to launch an eavesdropping attack, where the app could listen in on sounds around the phone and send back information to an attacker remotely.

The report, however, explains that the vulnerability is complicated and the flaw is not easy to crack. The team at Check Point Research was able to document how the attack was achieved on a Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G via a complicated process that included exploiting a series of four vulnerabilities in MediaTek firmware.

A malicious app like the one we mentioned above, would not have been able to execute such an attack without prior knowledge of the vulnerability. However, that will no longer be possible since the flaw has been fixed.

The report doesn’t mention which devices or chipsets in particular were affected by the vulnerability. This is something MediaTek has not revealed either as of writing this story.

However, the report does mention the processors based on the so-called Tensilica APU platform, which is reportedly also found on some HiSilicon Kirin chipsets. Whether these chipsets were also affected by a similar vulnerability is unknown.

Kanpur Test: Rahane, Pujara move into leadership roles as old bond with coach Dravid strengthens

Three brisk strides, the last longer than the first two, Rahul Dravid broke into his delivery stride with an effortless whirl of his shoulder, floated an off-break into Cheteshwar Pujara at the nets. The ball landed just outside the off-stump to encounter the visage of Pujara’s stretched and dead-straight bat. The ball dropped dead beside his feet, and as Pujara threw the ball back at Dravid, the latter gestured to him with a flick of his wrists that he could not cajole the flight he had wanted.

Watching all these, not far from the nets, was Ajinkya Rahane. He walked towards Dravid and whispered something into his ears. Dravid vigorously nodded his head, before rushing back to bowl the next. This one was more flight, had more revs, dropped suddenly into Pujara and spun back sharply into his legs. Pujara swiftly went deep into his crease and defended the ball to safety, though uncomfortably. Dravid flicked a thumbs’ up at Rahane. Whatever his inputs were, it seemed to work.
