IN THE NEWS

Making AI Safe in an Unpredictable World: An Interview with Thomas G. Dietterich
Our AI systems work remarkably well in closed worlds. That’s because these environments contain a set number of variables, making the worlds perfectly known and perfectly predictable. In these micro environments, machines only encounter objects that are familiar to them. As a result, they always know how they should act and respond. Unfortunately, these same systems quickly become confused when they are deployed in the real world, as many objects aren’t familiar to them. This is a bit of a problem because, when an AI system becomes confused, the results can be deadly. Future of Life Institute

Inventing the Invisible to Change the World
If you use a laptop, a tablet, or a smartphone, you have held the results of John Wager’s groundbreaking, collaborative research in your hands. Although you can’t see it, because it’s transparent. Wager, who retired in 2017 as the Michael and Judith Gaulke Chair of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Oregon State, played a critical role, with an interdisciplinary team of researchers, in developing the world’s first transparent transistor — a breakthrough that is moving well beyond digital display devices.

Club founder thinks 'the world is ready' for VR tech
Oregon State University is one of the few universities with a virtual reality and augmented reality club on campus. Virtual reality is a technology that allows the user to be completely immersed into another environment with the use of a headset. Augmented reality overlays images onto the real world that is being viewed through a screen according to the co-founder of the VR and AR club, Conor Wolfin. Co-founder Rushil Vora, said VR and AR are valuable technologies that will benefit lives in the future, and this club allows students to do that individually or on a team. The Daily Barometer

Dell's top venture capitalist: 'Portland has a tremendous opportunity'
Oregon startups used to complain it was hard to get the attention of blue-chip investors in Silicon Valley or on the East Coast, and entrepreneurs sometimes moved their companies to be closer to prospective backers. Scott Darling said those cash-starved days are in the past. "There's no problem getting capital in Portland anymore," Darling said. "The world is awash in capital." The Oregonian

In tech, workers fight for transparency
Across the technology industry, rank-and-file employees are demanding greater insight into how their companies are deploying the technology that they build. At Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Salesforce, as well as at tech startups, engineers and technologists are increasingly asking whether the products they are working on are being used for surveillance in places like China or for military projects in the United States or elsewhere.

You’re Expecting Too Much Out of Boston Dynamics’ Robots
You might have seen the video a few days ago of Atlas doing parkour, bounding up a multi-leveled structure with ease. While the performance seemed effortless, it took over 20 attempts. “In our videos we typically show the very best behavior,” Marc Raibert said. “It's not the average behavior or the typical behavior. And we think of it as an aspirational target for what the robots do.” Wired
