India: Friends filmed him while he drowned and did not rescue him

No.501281 ViewReplyOriginalReport
"His friends" filmed him while he drowned and did not rescue him.

The youth drowned in a pond near Rukmoddin Darga on the outskirts of the city, even as his friends were watching the incident, with one of them recording the same.

The blatant and inhumane act came to be known only after the video clip of the incident went viral. Strangely, there was another youth in the group who allegedly did not bother to save his friend, while a group of women who were washing clothes in the water, watched the whole incident as mute spectators.
According to police sources, the deceased is identified as Jaffer Ayub (19) resident of Mijguri locality of Kalaburagi.

OpenAI published the tool that writes disturbingly believable fake news

No.494612 ViewReplyOriginalReport

The research lab OpenAI has released the full version of a text-generating AI system that experts warned could be used for malicious purposes.

The institute originally announced the system, GPT-2, in February this year, but withheld the full version of the program out of fear it would be used to spread fake news, spam, and disinformation. Since then it’s released smaller, less complex versions of GPT-2 and studied their reception. Others also replicated the work. In a blog post this week, OpenAI now says it’s seen “no strong evidence of misuse” and has released the model in full.

GPT-2 is part of a new breed of text-generation systems that have impressed experts with their ability to generate coherent text from minimal prompts. The system was trained on eight million text documents scraped from the web and responds to text snippets supplied by users. Feed it a fake headline, for example, and it will write a news story; give it the first line of a poem and it’ll supply a whole verse.

It’s tricky to convey exactly how good GPT-2’s output is, but the model frequently produces eerily cogent writing that can often give the appearance of intelligence (though that’s not to say what GPT-2 is doing involves anything we’d recognize as cognition). Play around with the system long enough, though, and its limitations become clear. It particularly suffers with the challenge of long-term coherence; for example, using the names and attributes of characters consistently in a story, or sticking to a single subject in a news article.

The best way to get a feel for GPT-2’s abilities is to try it out yourself. You can access a web version at and enter your own prompts. (A “transformer” is a component of machine learning architecture used to create GPT-2 and its fellows.)

Goldan Showa— President Trump may not be in the room for historic impeachment hearings probing his involvement in a campaign to pressure Ukraine to investigate his political rivals, but the massive reach of his Twitter account put him there on Friday.

"As you sit here testifying, the president is attacking you on Twitter," House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., told Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine and a key figure in the administration's pressure campaign.

Man pushed out naked of his girlfriend's apartment for hitting her

> He hit her, she pushed him out. It happened in my apartment block, someone called the police and police officers walked him down to the police car but didn't provide him with a piece of clothing. They just told him to cover his genitals with his hands. So technically he was paraded naked by the police around the neighbourhood.

> He was found guilty of an assault and sentenced for community work of picking up trash.

> The man is 25 and works as cashier in clothing store

Book by 'Anonymous' says senior Trump administration officials considered resigning en masse in a ‘midnight self-massacre’

Senior Trump administration officials considered resigning en masse last year in a “midnight self-massacre” to sound a public alarm about President Trump’s conduct, but rejected the idea because they believed it would further destabilize an already teetering government, according to a new book by an unnamed author.

In “A Warning” by Anonymous, obtained by The Washington Post ahead of its release, a writer described only as “a senior official in the Trump administration” paints a chilling portrait of the president as cruel, inept and a danger to the nation he was elected to lead.
