Machine learning: why we mustn’t be slaves to the algorithm | Opinion | The Guardian
I suspect that Wittgenstein would have loved this research: it confirms his belief that the meaning of a word is not to be found in some abstract definition, but in its use in everyday language. Maybe ML geeks should read his Tractatus.

Ethical Autonomous Vehicles - Matthieu Cherubini
Many car manufacturers are projecting that by 2025 most cars will operate on driveless systems. While it is valid to think that our roads will be safer as autonomous vehicles replace traditional cars, the unpredictability of real-life situations that involve the complexities of moral and ethical reasoning complicate this assumption.

How can such systems be designed to accommodate the complicatedness of ethical and moral reasoning? Just like choosing the color of a car, ethics can become a commodified feature in autonomous vehicles that one can buy, change, and repurchase, depending on personal taste.

Three distinct algorithms have been created - each adhering to a specific ethical principle/behaviour set-up - and embedded into driverless virtual cars that are operating in a simulated environment, where they will be confronted with ethical dilemmas.

Sam Altman’s Manifest Destiny - The New Yorker
Y Combinator has even begun using an A.I. bot, Hal9000, to help it sift admission applications: the bot’s neural net trains itself by assessing previous applications and those companies’ outcomes. “What’s it looking for?” I asked Altman. “I have no idea,” he replied. “That’s the unsettling thing about neural networks—you have no idea what they’re doing, and they can’t tell you.”

EQ-Radio: Emotion Recognition using Wireless Signals
EQ-Radio is a new technology that can infer a person’s emotions using wireless signals. It transmits an RF signal and analyzes its reflections off a person’s body to recognize his emotional state (happy, sad, etc.). The key enabler underlying EQ-Radio is a new algorithm for extracting the individual heartbeats from the wireless signal at an accuracy comparable to on-body ECG monitors.

Learning Machines Taught by Patrick Hebron at ITP, Fall 2016
This course aims to introduce machine learning, a complex and quickly evolving subject. In the first half of the semester, we will investigate the conceptual and technical workings of a few key machine learning models, their underlying mathematics and their philosophical value in understanding the general phenomena of learning and experience. In the second half of the semester, we will focus on the development of software projects that apply machine learning to real-world problems.
