Creepy robots are all in your head (Marc Bruer, Cosmos)
“Researchers have mapped out the way our brain decides whether a robot is likeable or looks too human – and therefore repulsive.”

Dealership Makes Woman Sitting Right In Front Of Them Confirm She's Not A Robot
I mean... These days, it's not a bad question to ask. Although the Voight-Kampff test is shown to be much more effective! re: Dealership Makes Woman Sitting Right In Front Of Them Confirm She's Not A Robot

Artificial intelligence is killing the uncanny valley and our grasp on reality • WIRED
Sandra Upson:
<p>Progress on videos may move faster. Hany Farid, an expert at detecting fake photos and videos and a professor at Dartmouth, worries about how fast viral content spreads, and how slow the verification process is. Farid imagines a near future in which a convincing fake video of President Trump ordering the total nuclear annihilation of North Korea goes viral and incites panic, like a recast War of the Worlds for the AI era. “I try not to make hysterical predictions, but I don’t think this is far-fetched,” he says. “This is in the realm of what’s possible today.”

Fake Trump speeches are already circulating on the internet, a product of Lyrebird, the voice synthesis startup—though in the audio clips the company has shared with the public, Trump keeps his finger off the button, limiting himself to praising Lyrebird. Jose Sotelo, the company’s cofounder and CEO, argues that the technology is inevitable, so he and his colleagues might as well be the ones to do it, with ethical guidelines in place. He believes that the best defense, for now, is raising awareness of what machine learning is capable of. “If you were to see a picture of me on the moon, you would think it’s probably some image editing software,” Sotelo says. “But if you hear convincing audio of your best friend saying bad things about you, you might get worried. It’s a really new technology and a really challenging problem.”</p>

The Uncanny Valley of Consent – when advertising gets creepy
Music streaming service Spotify has launched a new range of adverts which have gathered mixed reactions. On the surface, they seem like the usual bland corporate attempts at chumming down - trying to cynically pass off advertising as friendship. It's kinda funny, right? Is that OK? It feels like it might not be OK.
