Four Short Links
  1. Ten Challenges for Making Automation a “Team Player” in Joint Human-Agent Activity — it’s really interesting to read this and think how they might manifest in, eg., a chatbot. I remember Jesse Robbins talking about Orion for emergency workers and how they were having to invent this stuff. It’s remarkable how we’ve gone through a chatbot boom and bust cycle without much forward progress in standardizing these things. (via The Morning Paper)
  2. Awful AIa curated list to track current scary usages of AI—hoping to raise awareness to its misuses in society.

  4. A Neural Network Guitar PedalThis neural network is trained to turn a guitar into a piano in real time. It’s not perfect but it’s still pretty amazing. (via Twitter)
  5. Web is Now ClosedSamuel Maddock has been trying to create a rival “indie” browser, and has been to each of the EME DRM vendors and has been sent away by all of them. This is appalling.
