Is genius not the first thing that comes to your mind when you see that face? It is good that he is not that fury or that head would gone up in flames with any less lighter sentence.
The perpetrator was Casey James Fury, a civilian painter and sandblaster who wanted to go home early. Fury set fire to a box of greasy rags. On appeal, he would complain to a judge of ineffective counsel, as his defense lawyer forced him to admit to setting the fire in exchange for a lighter sentence. According to counsel, he set that fire and a fire outside the sub three weeks later, because of his untreated anxiety.

The United States is no laggard on investment and advances in artificial intelligence technologies, Steven Walker, director of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, told reporters on Thursday, disputing assertions by top U.S. technology executives that China was racing ahead.“I think I’d put our AI, our country’s efforts, up against anybody,” Walker said at an event hosted by the Defense Writers Group. DARPA “helped create the field in the early 1960s” and since then has consistently invested in the three waves of artificial intelligence technologies, Walker said.

Well, this is worse than any one imagined. What is next? Fake pedophilia porn clips. Perfect setup for the fuck-Patrick gang! Pedophilia is a great guilty-first smear tactic. Unfortunately (as far as I know) the Russians never got that low.

Herb should be more organic than less technical. Good point but missing the actual attack vector. An electronic signature or checksum allows the public to authenticate something is not tempered with and was produced/blessed by someone. Producers of derogatory content seek to damage, smear and discredit the victim where the premise is that the victim committed an act that he/she will deny. Exactly the opposite: the attacker is highlighting the victim’s stake in denial and Lin’s solution is about the victim’s ability to positively affirm.
There can also be trust-mediator clearinghouses and validators that specialize in authenticating content. I disagree with both articles on feasibility of a technological solution. An AI solution is not necessarily that complex or far away; it may not be cheap but it is doable. Trust mediation may be a good upcoming business.
One possible solution.
