In the UK, they warned against the use of emotions recognition systems

The Commissioner’s Office, according to the UK (ICO), warned against using the analysis of emotions for something more serious than “Children’s holiday games”.

According to the deputy head of the department, Stephen Bonner, the technology is still "immature", and the risks associated with it surpass any potential benefits. He added that the wrong analysis of the data can lead to discrimination.

Bonner also described attempts to use biometrics to detect emotions as “pseudo -scientific”.

TSMC has suspended the supply of chips to the Chinese manufacturer of and accelerators

TSMC has suspended the shipment of 7-nm processors to the Chinese manufacturer of the BIREN TECHNOLOGY AIS-Smuskers.

According to Bloomberg, Taiwanese chipmaker took such a step due to American sanctions. TSMC does not know whether the products of the Chinese company falls under the restrictions of the United States, so they decided to suspend the deliveries "just in case".

Earlier, Biren Technology introduced an accelerator BR100, designed for computer vision tasks and processing a natural language. Its closest competitor is Nvidia A100.

Gmail was accused of blocking the letters of the Republican Party of the United States

The Republican Committee of the United States (RNC) accused Gmail of deliberately assigning the party’s letters to the Spam folder. The organization sued the owner of the Google service.

The technical gigant claims that he does not block letters on political characteristics.

According to representatives of Google, spam filters of the postal service are trained on the actions of users who independently send such letters to spam. Based on this, the system can automatically block RNC newsletters.

The source code of the project is available on GitHub. Bumble believes that the tool will allow small companies to integrate Private Detector into their services and protect users from unwanted content.

Engineers created a sweater deceiving people recognition systems

Researchers from the University of Maryland created a sweater hiding people from recognition systems.

Demonstration of "Sweater-invisible". Data: Research of the University of Maryland.

The developers used the vulnerability of algorithms trained to identify specific objects. With the help of a large set of data, they generated a pattern with the image of people and changed it until the computer vision system ceased to “recognize” a person. Then they applied the final print on a regular sweater.

As a result, the recognition system could not determine the person who fell into the field of view of the camera.
