It seems the concern is if AI vision systems are used to verify insurance claims or clinical trial claims then there exists this way to noise to the image to skew the predicted outcome (adversarial attack). They report it working on a model which is recreated from a description of the structure of the model which will be "fooled". Another example of being careful on over reliance on algorithmic judgements.
This was the Genspace hosted bio event @ Caveat on Friday. I learned about photo microbial fuel cells and got to touch various mycelial materials while sharing a drink with experts and enthusiasts. Great start of a night and even better conversations.
@nolan I thought this was quite succinct: "They turned all speech into public pronouncements, and thus all conversation into a strange form of activism, part of a zero-sum battle over which ideas will find a foothold in our collective attention."
I believe the most lasting consequence of social media is the trend towards "speech as performance". Whether it's your hobby or a conversation with a stranger, there's an audience to please and a personal brand to build.
@jon Hmm. Thanks for sharing that. I'm trying to understand the different ways in which one can engage and communicate over Mastodon (like should I have my own instance, who should I follow to craft the feed and community I like, and how does following people on your own instance signify differently than following people on a different instance) and I thought the social.coop sub-thread was helpful information.
@salixlucida @wilkie :( That's a big reason why I think scientists should be careful who owns their copyright. In the US there are policies which make nationally funded research publicly available but the law is sprawling and there is an issue about compliance...
@jc lists are private, they basically function as extra timelines you can add people you follow into
you have to already be following someone to put them in a list which means that users are always informed when someone is receiving their posts (and this helps things work nicely with locked accounts, too)
