Keanu Reeves, Jackie Chan, The Rock deepfaked into Mortal Kombat 11

Jak Connor | Feb 17, 2020 12:32 AM CST

Deepfake technology is getting uncomfortably good, and while most of what you have probably seen from deepfakes is movie-related, check out this video game one.

Above we have a video from BabyZone who used Deepfake technology to include various celebrities in Mortal Kombat 11. Using the deepfake tech, BabyZone was able to successfully replace Sub-Zero with Keanu Reeves from John Wick, Terminator with Bruce Campbell, Kabal as Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Johnny Cage as Jean-Claude Van Damme, Kung Lao with Jackie Chan, Liu Kang with Bruce Lee and finally The Joker with Joaquin Phoenix.

I think Keanu Reeves as Sub-Zero and Jackie Chan as Kung Lao are the two that are particularly good out of the set. Unfortunately, you cannot download these to play as BabyZone used his own facesets, and the footage that you are seeing was edited in post. Regardless of not being able to download them, these deepfakes are extremely impressive.

Facebook & Twitter sent cease and desist letters to creepy AI startup

Jak Connor | Feb 7, 2020 1:39 AM CST

It was only last week I reported on some law enforcement adopting a new artificial intelligence to assist them in investigations. Now, the company behind that artificial intelligence has been asked to cease and desist by multiple social media platforms.

The artificial intelligence we are talking about here is from Clearview and is a facial recognition software that uses public personal images scraped from multiple social media platforms to identify people. This AI has been fed over 3 billion publically available images and can now identify almost anyone at the drop of a hat. Clearview, the company behind the AI, has been pushing into government and law enforcement as they believe what they have created can assist in investigations.

According to a Facebook spokesperson who spoke to Buzzfeed News, Facebook has sent "multiple letters" asking Clearview to cease and desist scaping "data, images and media" from Facebook and Instagram. Facebook isn't alone in asking Clearview to 'please stop', as back in late January, Twitter also sent letters to Clearview. YouTube and Venmo are also in the same letter sending boat as the other social media platforms.

Police are using privacy breaching AI to scan everyone's social media

Jak Connor | Jan 31, 2020 1:09 AM CST

Chicago Police are using an artificial intelligence that could be in clear breach of people privacy online, as it scans everyone's social media.

The artificial intelligence is called Clearview AI and it is a massive database that includes 3 billion photos taken from social media and other platforms such as Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. Users of the AI feed an image of the person they want to look for into its system then the AI will cycle through its database and present the users with a bunch of different images from different platforms that 'match' the fed image. At the moment the AI is being used by the FBI, Homeland Security and the Chicago Police Department (CPD).

While this AI system would definitely save law enforcement some time in tracking criminals, many privacy advocates have said that it is in complete violation of peoples privacy rights. New Jersey's attorney general Gurbir Grewal, said "Until this week, I had not heard of Clearview AI. I was troubled." According to ACLU of New Jersey, Grewal "put a moratorium on Clearview AI's chilling, unregulated facial recognition software.

Here's an AI-driven vibrator backed by analysis on 30,000 orgasms | TweakTown.com

The Lioness Generation 2 is a new vibrator that uses an astonishing 30,000 individual orgasms to deliver the user the best experience yet. It was shown off at this year's CES, and according to the slide above, "knowledge is power. And pleasure. Have better orgasms more often with AI-assisted guidance, backed by years of research and analysis of over 30,000 orgasms."

Not only does Generation 2 have a massive data set to work off of, but it also tracks a user's individual session, saves the data, and then relays tips back to the user. Of course, this vibrator wouldn't give the full experience unless it had an app to go along with it -- which is does. The app shows off all the previously mentioned data in graphs and gives further details on how to improve pleasure.

Samsung is going to unveil an artificial human at CES 2020

Anthony Garreffa | Jan 5, 2020 4:24 PM CST

CES 2020 - Samsung has been teasing something about 'Project Neon' for a while now, and while some thought it would be some fancy full artificial human being -- in reality, it seems it's just an ultra-realistic human avatar.

Neon would be used for entertainment and business use, so think of a virtual person greeting you at a hotel, a receptionist, or even as an actor in guiding someone through a building or tutorial. We don't know what to expect exactly, but the head of Neon and computer-human interaction researcher Paranav Mistry tweeted a tease above.

He said that the company's new "Core R3" technology is capable of "autonomously create new expressions, new movements, new dialog (even in Hindi), completely different from the original captured data".

AI is outperforming experts at spotting breast cancer

Anthony Garreffa | Jan 1, 2020 10:16 PM CST

AI is being used for one of the best causes on this planet -- cancer. DeepMind, the Google-owned and UK-based artificial intelligence company is now using AI towards breast cancer detection.

Breast cancer detection isn't a perfect science, as there are a high number of false positives (this is when a doctor or expert sees a mammogram and says there's an issue, like breast cancer is spotted, but there is, in fact, no cancer). AI on the other hand, isn't having as many issues with false positives.

DeepMind trained its AI using de-identified data from patients in the US and UK, where it saw false positives reduced by 5.7% and false negatives by 9.% in the US. But in the UK the numbers were much different, with 1.2% and 2.7% respectively. The AI in question only had access to the most recent mammogram of each patient, but it was able to make screening decisions with higher accuracy than their human counterparts.

This $40 off A.I. device translates 12 unique languages in real-time

Jak Connor | Dec 5, 2019 1:42 AM CST

If you have traveled to different countries and encountered a strong language barrier, then you would understand how much of a hassle it can be trying to work out simple things like directions.

Luckily, that problem can now be solved with the ONE Mini. The ONE Mini was created from a $100,000 Kickstarter campaign that birthed what is now fully called the ONE Mini Pocket Multilingual Assistant. This pocket-sized device allows users to translate languages in real-time and is a fantastic purchase for any avid traveler.

The device has the ability to translate 12 different foreign languages and also comes with a multitude of features. The device comes with artificial intelligence that captures the audio that has been spoken, and then produces extremely accurate text or audio in the requested language. Most likely, the best feature of the ONE Mini is that upon purchasing, users will gain access to a 24/7 live interpreter service that can assist in more complex conversations.

World's 1st AI cameras that detect drivers using phones hit Australia

Jak Connor | Dec 3, 2019 1:10 AM CST

A state in Australia has rolled out the world's first AI cameras that are designed to detect drivers who are using their mobile phones.

New South Wales (NSW), a state in Australia has said that these new cameras use artificial intelligence to determine whether some is or isn't using their phone while operating a moving vehicle. The system will flag a driver if they are suspected as using a phone, and then the images will be reviewed by a human before fines are issued out. NSW police assistant commissioner, Michael Corboy, told Australian media that "It's a system to change the culture."

At the moment, the plans for these cameras include forty-five of them to roll out across the state over the next three years. The Australian law is giving drivers a small grace period, as for the first three months if a driver is caught by one of these cameras they will be issued an official warning -- after the three months fines of $344 AUD ($233 US) will be sent out as well as penalty points. The NSW government has said that having these cameras on the roads could prevent 100 fatal crashes across a five year period.
