Eu.lohud. Digital Clones Could Cause Problems for Identity ... Three fundamental technologies -- chatbots, audio fakes, and deepfake videos -- have improved to the point that creating digital, real-time clones of people is merely a matter of integrating the systems.
The fundamental technologies for creating digital clones of people — text, audio, and video that sound and look like a specific person — have rapidly advanced and are within striking distance of a future in which digital avatars can sound and act like specific people, Tamaghna Basu, co-founder and chief technology officer of neoEYED, a behavioral analytics firm, told attendees at the virtual Black Hat conference on Aug. 6. How close are we to a Black Mirror-style digital afterlife? When Roman Mazurenko was struck down by a car and killed just before his 33rd birthday, his “soulmate” Eugenia Kuyda memorialised him as a chatbot.
She asked his friends and family to share his old text messages and fed them into a neural network built by developers at her artificial intelligence startup, Replika. “I didn’t expect it to be as impactful. Usually I find showing emotions and thinking about grief really hard so I was mostly trying to avoid it. Talking to Roman’s avatar was facing those demons,” she told the Guardian. Elon Musk says humans must become cyborgs to stay relevant. Is he right? Humans must become cyborgs if they are to stay relevant in a future dominated by artificial intelligence.
That was the warning from Tesla founder Elon Musk, speaking at an event in Dubai this weekend. Musk argued that as artificial intelligence becomes more sophisticated, it will lead to mass unemployment.

Researchers are working on Brain Computer Interfaces, BCI, but so far this requires bulky settings, wires connecting your head with a computer. Not exactly meeting the requirement of “unnoticed”. Apparently a team of researchers at MIT have discovered a shortcut to connect our thoughts to the Internet and sending back the answer to our queries to our brain. How Coronavirus Will Disrupt Future Colleges & Universities. Photo-Illustration: Joe Darrow In 2017, Scott Galloway anticipated Amazon’s $13.7 billion purchase of Whole Foods a month before it was announced.
Last year, he called WeWork on its “seriously loco” $47 billion valuation a month before the company’s IPO imploded. Now, Galloway, a Silicon Valley runaway who teaches marketing at NYU Stern School of Business, believes the pandemic has greased the wheels for big tech’s entrée into higher education. The post-pandemic future, he says, will entail partnerships between the largest tech companies in the world and elite universities.

Web 2.0 presents opportunities for teachers to build higher levels of engagement in the classroom. Giving students the ability to think critically about transferring skills and knowledge to new creations teachers use Web 2.0 to encourage students to view themselves as active agents in the transfer process. The impact of Web 2.0 has instrumentally changed the way students learn and in return the way teachers must teach. The number of Web 2.0 tools continues to grow while utilization of these tools supports constructivist pedagogy. The interactive nature of these technologies lends itself well to collaborative learning, which motivates students, creates a “safer” learning environment, and enhances knowledge and skills.
That supports verbal voice and writing for two or more individuals synchronously. How To Use Social Learning In Elearning?
