Artificial intelligence (AI) has already made its way into our personal and professional lives. Although the term is frequently used to describe a wide range of advanced computer processes, AI is best understood as a computer system or technological process that is capable of simulating human intelligence or learning to perform tasks and calculations and engage in decision-making.

Until recently, the traditional understanding of AI described machine learning (ML) technologies that recognized patterns and/or predicted behavior or preferences (also known as analytical AI).

Meet Harvey, the A.I. chatbot drafting contracts at one of the U.K.‘s largest law firms

Posted by in categories: law, robotics/AI

Harvey is one of the newest hires at Allen & Overy, the U.K.’s second-largest law firm, and he’s one heck of a workhorse.

Since November, he has been churning out drafts of merger and acquisition agreements as well as memos to clients. He never leaves the office and never takes a coffee break. He’s also not human.

Harvey is the name of the artificial intelligence chatbot the international legal giant has been testing for the past several months, without informing its clients, the Financial Times reported. The tool is available to any of the company’s attorneys.

We Found An Neuron in GPT-2

Posted by in categories: ethics, law, neuroscience

I notice that the token in question happens to be segmented as “_an” and “_a” and not “_an_” or “_a_”.

So continuations like [_a, moral,_fruit] or [_an, tagonist, ic,_monster, s] could be possible (assuming those are all legal tokens).

I am reminded of the wonderful little nuggest in linguistics, where people are supposed to have said something like “a narange” (because that kind of fruit came from the spanish province of “naranja”). The details on these claims are often not well documented.

Why Carl Sagan believed that science is a source of spirituality

Posted by in categories: biological, ethics, evolution, law, science

Yes, the world has some serious problems, but if we did not have problems, we would never be forced to find new solutions. Problems push progress forward. Let’s embrace our ultimate existential challenges and come together to solve them. It is time to forget our differences and think of ourselves only as humans, engaged in a common biological and moral struggle. If the cosmic perspective, and the philosophy of poetic meta-naturalism, or some similar world-view of evolution and emergence, can build a bridge between the reductionist worldview and the religions of the world, then we can be optimistic that a new level of order and functionality will emerge from the current sea of chaos.

Knowledge is enlightenment, knowledge is transcendence, and knowledge is power. The tendency toward disorder described by the second law requires that life acquire knowledge forever, giving us all an individual and collective purpose by creating the constraint that forces us to create. By becoming aware of our emergent purpose, we can live more meaningful lives, in harmony with one another and with the aspirations of nature. You are not a cosmic accident. You are a cosmic imperative.
