The “Black Mirror” scenarios that are leading some experts to call for more secrecy on AI
Artificial intelligence could sway elections, help Big Brother, and make hackers way more dangerous, suggests a new report. Thomas Dietterich, a professor at Oregon State University who has warned of the criminal potential of AI before, notes that the report’s authors don’t include computer security experts or anyone from the likes of Google, Microsoft, and Apple.

NOT NEWS, BUT OF INTEREST

Overconfident Students, Dubious Employers
College students may believe they’re ready for a job, but employers think otherwise. At least, that’s according to data from the National Association of Colleges and Employers, which surveyed graduating college seniors and employers and found a significant difference in the groups' perceptions. For the most part, a high percentage of students indicated in almost every category they thought they were proficient. Employers disagreed. National Association of Colleges and Employers
