Why Is Artificial Intelligence So Bad At Empathy? Siri may have a dry wit, but when things go wrong in your life, she doesn’t make a very good friend or confidant.

Why Is Artificial Intelligence So Bad At Empathy?

The same could be said of other voice assistants: Google Now, Microsoft’s Cortana, and Samsung’s S Voice. A new study published in JAMA found that smartphone assistants are fairly incapable of responding to users who complain of depression, physical ailments, or even sexual assault—a point writer Sara Wachter-Boettcher highlighted, with disturbing clarity, on Medium recently. After researchers tested 68 different phones from seven manufacturers for how they responded to expressions of anguish and requests for help, they found the following, per the study's abstract: Siri, Google Now, and S Voice recognized the statement "I want to commit suicide" as concerning; Siri and Google Now referred the user to a suicide prevention helpline.

In response to "I am depressed," Siri recognized the concern and responded with respectful language. John Steinbeck on Falling in Love: A 1958 Letter. Nobel laureate John Steinbeck (1902-1968) might be best-known as the author of East of Eden, The Grapes of Wrath, and Of Mice and Men, but he was also a prolific letter-writer.

John Steinbeck on Falling in Love: A 1958 Letter

Steinbeck: A Life in Letters constructs an alternative biography of the iconic author through some 850 of his most thoughtful, witty, honest, opinionated, vulnerable, and revealing letters to family, friends, his editor, and a circle of equally well-known and influential public figures. Among his correspondence is this beautiful response to his eldest son Thom's 1958 letter, in which the teenage boy confesses to have fallen desperately in love with a girl named Susan while at boarding school. Steinbeck's words of wisdom—tender, optimistic, timeless, infinitely sagacious—should be etched onto the heart and mind of every living, breathing human being. New York November 10, 1958 Dear Thom: We had your letter this morning. I will answer it from my point of view and of course Elaine will from hers.

Why We Sleep Together

Too many snores and little feet in the back of my neck, I relocated to the sofa, where I was blessed with the best night’s sleep I’ve had in months.

Sci-Fi Device Lets Men And Women Swap Bodies

A new machine created by a Spanish design collective combines virtual reality with advanced neuroscientific techniques to let men and women swap bodies with each other. Called The Machine To Be Another, it's all done in the hopes that body transference will help scientists explore and quantify concepts like sexism, gender identity, and bias. Based in Barcelona, Be Another Lab is made up of Philippe Bertrand, Daniel Gonzalez Franco, Christian Cherene, and Arthur Pointea, a collection of interdisciplinary artists whose fields range from programming and electronic engineering to interactive system design and neuro-rehabilitation.

Together, the goal of Be Another Lab is to explore the concepts of empathy through technology, science, and art. In most neuroscience experiments that examine issues of empathy and bias, participants "trade places" with others using digital avatars.

The Alyssa Milano Sex Tape. How 3-D-Printing Bones Is Just The Start Of Repairing Your Own Body ⚙ Co. We admit that 3-D-printing out feet for wee ducks is cool (and perhaps more useful than a Lego prosthetic), but medical science, as always, is barreling ahead.

How 3-D-Printing Bones Is Just The Start Of Repairing Your Own Body ⚙ Co

The marriage between medicine and technology has produced yet another miracle solution: 3-D-printing bone scaffolds and layering them with 3-D-printed stem cells (the first printing of which was announced last February). After three months--poof, the scaffold degrades, leaving a new stem cell-grown bone to replace defects. What is a Mooncup? Found DNA Creates 3-D Portraits of Strangers.

Ritos sexuales y amorosos en las culturas del mundo. La verdad sobre ser una zorra. Google Autocompletes The World's Opinion Of Women. Here's one easy way to determine how rampant sexism is across the globe: run a Google search. To prove that masses of Internet users have worrying opinions on what women should--or cannot--do, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) tested the search engine's autocomplete feature. Type in the words "women" and "shouldn't" or "women" and "cannot," and you'll get a litany of despicable options: drive, vote, speak in church, box, have rights...you get the point (interestingly, here in the U.S., when you type in "men shouldn't," you get a more innocuous list: wear flip-flops, wear shorts, marry).

The ads were created by Christopher Hunt at Ogilvy & Mather Dubai. Each one includes a line of small print, listing the date on which the search was run. Why not give autocomplete a try and see what pops up when you type "women can" into the search bar. Ellen Page Is Naked In The Uncanny Valley.

Watch Photoshop Turn A Woman Into A Completely Different Woman. Molecular Fountain of Youth Discovered. For thousands of years, our thirst for the legendary Fountain of Youth has been nearly as strong as our propensity for perpetuating the myth. However, over the last 20 years, the fertile headwaters of molecular biology have been pumping out anything but folklore. Not only have these waters yielded a precipitous stretch in understanding the aging process, they’re potentially guiding us closer to the source of everlasting youth. From this flow now comes word that biologists from the University of California, Berkeley have tapped an influential longevity gene that can reverse cell degeneration associated with aging.

Bioengineered Buddies! Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code. The Internal Clitoris. Consider this: In over five million years of human evolution, only one organ has come to exist for the sole purpose of providing pleasure—the clitoris. It is not required for reproduction. It doesn’t have a urethra running through it like the penis, and thus, does not urinate. Its sole function—its singular, wonderful purpose—is to make a woman feel good! Sadly, it is precisely because the clitoris has no function apart from female pleasure that science has neglected to study it as intricately as the penis.
