How to regulate AI?

First, an A.I. system must be subject to the full gamut of laws that apply to its human operator.

My second rule is that an A.I. system must clearly disclose that it is not human.

My third rule is that an A.I. system cannot retain or disclose confidential information without explicit approval from the source of that information.

Apple: don’t use Face ID on an iPhone X if you’re under 13 or have a twin

Capture

In a security guide published Wednesday, Apple recommends that children under the age of 13 do not use Face ID due to the probability of a false match being significantly higher for young children. The company said this was because “their distinct facial features may not have fully developed”.

With Face ID, Apple has implemented a secondary system that exclusively looks out for attempts to fool the technology. Both the authentication and spoofing defence are based on machine learning, but while the former is trained to identify individuals from their faces, the latter is used to look for telltale signs of cheating.

A lack of project managers is set to send costs soaring and cause delays on major infrastructure projects.

 

A report by accountant EY is also warning that commercial and financial managers are in short supply.

 

“Combined with the geographic nature of infrastructure programmes, decision makers in most regions can’t assume the skills are there and need to think creatively and embrace better ways of working to ensure that they can deliver projects in a way that provides value for money”

The warning comes as another major report states that the industry must double its current output to £95,000 a minute for the next decade to deliver infrastructure plans.
