Regulating AI in Undefined Terms: Experts Debate Definitions in European Union’s AI Act

A proposed European Union law that seeks to control AI is raising questions about what kinds of systems it would regulate. Experts at a roundtable staged by the Center for Data Innovation debated the implications of limitations in the EU’s forthcoming Artificial Intelligence Act.

Airfoils Automatically Optimized

Engineers who design aircraft, aqueducts, and other objects that interact with air and water use numerical simulations to test potential shapes, but they rely on trial and error to improve their designs. A neural simulator can optimize the shape itself.

Fine-Tune Your Fine-Tuning

Let’s say you have a pretrained language model and a small amount of data to fine-tune it to answer yes-or-no questions. Should you fine-tune it to classify yes/no or to fill in missing words — both viable approaches that are likely to yield different results?

Image Transformations Unmasked: CNNs for Vision that Aren't Fooled By Changing Backgrounds

If you change an image by moving its subject within the frame, a well trained convolutional neural network may not recognize the fundamental similarity between the two versions. New research aims to make CNN wise to such alterations.
