#2 Former head of NSA joins OpenAI board

2 people viewing this

@tech      By 00010111      10 hours ago

OpenAI has appointed Paul M. Nakasone, a retired general of the US Army and a former head of the National Security Agency (NSA), to its board of directors, the company announced on Thursday.

Nakasone, who was nominated to lead the NSA by former President Donald Trump, directed the agency from 2018 until February of this year. Before Nakasone left the NSA, he wrote an op-ed supporting the renewal of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, the surveillance program that was ultimately reauthorized by Congress in April.

OpenAI says Nakasone will join its Safety and Security Committee, which was announced in May and is led by CEO Sam Altman, “as a first priority.” Nakasone will “also contribute to OpenAI’s efforts to better understand how AI can be used to strengthen cybersecurity by quickly detecting and responding to cybersecurity threats.”

Recent departures tied to safety at OpenAI include co-founder and chief scientist Ilya Sutskever, who played a key role in Sam Altman’s November firing and eventual un-firing, and Jan Leike, who said on X that “safety culture and processes have taken a backseat to shiny products.”

“Artificial intelligence has the potential to have huge positive impacts on people’s lives, but it can only meet this potential if these innovations are securely built and deployed,“ board chair Bret Taylor said in a statement. “General Nakasone’s unparalleled experience in areas like cybersecurity will help guide OpenAI in achieving its mission of ensuring artificial general intelligence benefits all of humanity.”

OpenAI’s board of directors now includes Nakasone, Altman, Adam D’Angelo, Larry Summers, Bret Taylor, Dr. Sue Desmond-Hellmann, Nicole Seligman, and Fidji Simo. Microsoft’s Dee Templeton also has a non-voting observer seat.

#6  Google warns of actively exploited Pixel firmware zero-day

Google has released patches for 50 security vulnerabilities impacting its Pixel devices and warned that one of them had already been exploited in targeted attacks as a zero-day.

Tracked as CVE-2024-32896, this elevation of privilege (EoP) flaw in the Pixel firmware has been rated a high-severity security issue.

"There are indications that CVE-2024-32896 may be under limited, targeted exploitation," the company warned this Tuesday.

"All supported Google devices will receive an update to the 2024-06-05 patch level. We encourage all customers to accept these updates to their devices."

Google tagged 44 other security bugs in this month's Pixel update bulletin, seven of which are privilege escalation vulnerabilities considered critical and impact various subcomponents.

While Pixel devices also run Android, they receive separate security and bug fix updates from the standard monthly patches distributed to all Android OEMs because of their exclusive features and capabilities and the unique hardware platform directly controlled by Google.

You can find more details on the June 2024 updates for the Pixel in the security bulletin dedicated to Google's own smartphone range.


To apply the security update, Pixel users must go to Settings > Security & privacy > System & updates > Security update, tap Install, and restart the device to complete the update process.

Earlier this month, Arm warned of a memory-related vulnerability (CVE-2024-4610) in Bifrost and Valhall GPU kernel drivers exploited in the wild.

This use-after-free vulnerability (UAF) impacts all versions of Bifrost and Valhall drivers from r34p0 through r40p0, and it can be exploited in attacks that lead to information disclosure and arbitrary code execution.

In April, Google fixed two other Pixel zero-days exploited by forensic firms to unlock phones without a PIN and access the data. CVE-2024-29745 was tagged as a high-severity information disclosure bug in the Pixel bootloader, while CVE-2024-29748 is a high-severity privilege escalation bug in the Pixel firmware.

#10 Remember Devin, The AI That Would Replace Devs? Well It Got Exposed For Being Full Of Sh*t

3 people viewing this

@tech      By Jago      5 days ago

This thing out here struggling to make "Hello World" apps and people thought it would replace engineers.

The introduction of artificial intelligence (AI) technology has generated both excitement and criticism within the IT sector. Devin AI, a platform billed as a breakthrough AI software engineer, has been involved in a recent disagreement. However, its claimed powers have been called into question due to accusations of deception made by its inventors.

5:50 - Requirements that needed to be determined

7:32 - How a human compensates for Upwork's lack of RFP process

10:11 - What Devin did instead, and how poorly

13:03 - Devin seems to be fixing code from Github

14:19 - But Devin is actually making up errors, and then fixing them

15:40 - All Devin had to do was run the command from the README

16:23 - But Devin couldn't figure that out

16:26 - So it created this nightmare 'C'-style low-level buffer append loop in Python

17:25 - My replication of what Devin tried to do

18:15 - It took me about 36 minutes

20:16 - It took Devin at least six hours, and maybe more than a day

20:48 - More bad Devin code

23:48 - Conclusion, and a Plea


Exposing Misrepresentation

The scrutiny on Devin AI intensified when it failed to deliver as promised in real-world scenarios, particularly on platforms like Upwork. Tasks that Devin struggled to complete highlighted significant limitations, raising concerns about its practical utility and reliability. The allegations of misrepresentation suggest that Devin’s creators may have overstated its capabilities for marketing purposes.

YT


Implications and Industry Impact

The fallout from these allegations has broader implications for the AI industry. It underscores the importance of transparency and realistic expectations when promoting emerging technologies like AI. The controversy surrounding Devin AI serves as a cautionary tale about the risks of overhyped claims and the need for ethical practices in AI development and marketing.

Claims vs. Reality

Devin AI was introduced with bold claims of being a game-changer in software engineering, capable of performing tasks on par with human professionals. The creators positioned Devin as a groundbreaking solution that could potentially replace human software engineers. However, recent investigations by ‘Internet of Bugs’ have revealed discrepancies between Devin’s advertised abilities and its actual performance.

Moving Forward with Caution

As the tech community navigates the complexities of AI integration, it is crucial to approach new technologies with a critical eye. The Devin AI controversy highlights the importance of thorough vetting and independent scrutiny to ensure that AI solutions meet genuine needs and expectations.

Conclusion

Important issues regarding trust and responsibility in the field of artificial intelligence are brought forward by the misrepresentation allegations involving Devin AI. Even if AI has a lot of promise, its research and application must be based on ethical principles and transparency. The issue around Devin AI underscores the necessity for ethical progress in artificial intelligence and serves as a warning against the dangers of narratives driven by hype.

I know this capability has been available on Pixel for some time but I’m finally getting around to messing with Gemini
YT

YT

I don’t use my Pixel as my daily driver but it’s nice being able to replace Gemini with Google a*sistant. I’m curious if Google a*sistant will be phased out for Gemini or at least have Google a*sistant Powered by Gemini. I a*sume since Gemini is not baked in like Google a*sistant, it takes Gemini longer to complete tasks
YT


Looking forward to what Apple cooks up with Open AI. I’m sure they will correct any missteps Google took with Gemini on Pixel.

#15  Intel - Sleeper Stock of the future

@tech      By Spazo      1 week ago

Intel has been making moves.

20b from govt

announcing A.i. chips(June 3rd 2024)

building a huge factory in Ohio for future chip tech.

Third behind Google in terms of quantum abilities.

Bottomed out in my opinion at roughly 30 bucks. This stock is just getting started.

Signed with Nvidia to make chips.

The list goes on.


There isn't enough chip makers in the world. Intel will win along side all other company's because this is the initial wave that take humanity to the next level of tech. The initial wave is a joined operations mark amongst the industry to push to a new base.

OpenAI Insiders Warn of a ‘Reckless’ Race for Dominance

 Article + Audio

Summary:
OpenAI insiders are sounding the alarm about the company's reckless pursuit of powerful AI, prioritizing speed and profit over safety. They claim the company's secretive culture and restrictive agreements prevent open discussion of potential risks. Some former employees even predict a 70% chance of catastrophic harm from advanced AI.

The whistle-blowers have published an open letter calling for more transparency and protection for those who speak out. They also advocate for government regulation to ensure responsible development of AI.

Key concerns include:

* Reckless race: OpenAI's rush to build the most powerful AI without adequate safety measures.

* Secrecy: Restrictive agreements prevent employees from freely discussing concerns.

* Lack of oversight: Limited government regulation leaves AI development in the hands of private companies.
The whistle-blowers hope their actions will lead to greater accountability and a safer approach to AI development.
