Utilizing Media: A Response to Deepfakes

  Of the ACM (the Association for Computing Machinery), a magazine called Communication of the ACM's edition releases 1 month before its stated release month. In the latest edition, regarding March 2021, of Communications of the ACM , Column Editor, Susan J. Winter wrote Computing Ethics: What To Do About Deepfakes . Regarding Winter’s desire to halt or hinder illegal or unethical deepfakes, a video technology like wearing a full body masking suit, Winter wrote, “Here are three areas where technical experts can make positive contributions to the development of synthetic media technologies: education and media literacy, subject defense, and verification” (Winter, March, 2021). Winter was saying actions such as teaching and having disruptive technology knowledge, researching professionally, and proving concepts are parts of deepfake experts’ calculus. But this much work specializes such that entry level, junior, work will probably be offered to overqualified professionals. Technic

To Arti Mehta, a Response: Data, collaboration and life on the edge – Meet the Catalyst winners

On Telecoms Industry Challenges, a Seventeen Team Entry Point
Arti Mehta wrote, "At Digital Transformation Asia this week, 17 Catalyst teams demonstrated their solutions to common telecoms industry challenges." Demonstrating common telecoms industry solutions gives an industry entry point, and it is the least common challenge,  but it is a demonstrated challenge: the problem is a university course topic.
On Catalysts, the Basics
Mehta reported: Catalysts are member- driven, concept-proving communications service providers (CSPs), suppliers, developers, etc. who assemble a quick and successive access  solution. Mehta reported: many leading commerce deployments are a Catalyst assembly. Mehta reported: with sixty-plus companies, and a two hundred plus entry count, this event location was Malaysia. Mehta wrote: the project selection was artificial intelligence (AI), user experience (UX), and virtual intelligence (VI); but also blockchain; but 5G; but etc. Mehta wrote: thirteen industry experts judged each project. 

The Categories, and the Winner
There were four categories: 
  • Outstanding use of TM Forum assets
  • Best new Catalyst in show
    • Winner: AIS, Bharti Airtel, Globe Telecom, KDDI Research, Optus, Singtel, Telkomsel
      • Project: Becoming EDGY
  • Outstanding Catalyst – innovation
  • Outstanding Catalyst – business impact
    • Winner: China Telecom
      • Project: Glaucus-precision on telco data

The Industry Demands Change 
In Scripture, the Apostle Saul sent his son,  Timothy, an assurance message. Saul (NIV) wrote, "For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline" (2 Timothy 1:7). These Catalyst winners are a big project, but it defines overhead wrong: timid because the Play Store is not used, powerless because the consumer Google+ is shutdown and remembered, but hating people because 5G is a health hazard; but not disciplining itself because telcos data is put behind the ™ Forum instruction paywall.
On the basis of the Wachowski Brothers film, "The Matrix," but take it with a grain of salt.

In response to the Institute of Industrial Science, the University of Tokyo’s Circular Reasoning: Spiral Circuits for More Efficient AI

Circular Reasoning On June 14, 2020, the IIS (Institute of Industrial Science) at the UTokyo (University of Tokyo) wrote  Circular Reasoning: Spiraling Circuits for More Efficient AI ; but a Press Release from this institute is giving a synopsis on this topic. On this press release, the IIS wrote, “Researchers from the Institute of Industrial Science at the University of Tokyo designed and built specialized computer hardware consisting of stacks of memory modules arranged in a 3D-spiral for artificial intelligence (AI) applications” (IIS, June 14, 2020). The IIS continued on, saying this research is allowing a singular way work can be done regarding the next generation energy efficient AI devices (Here is a current generation, but energy efficient, AI device, Android Pie: link ) shall be implemented into production.             The Fundamentals of Machine Learning                On this press release, the IIS is explaining the fundamentals of ML (Machine Learning). The IIS wrote, “Mach

IS the Future of AI “Women?”

Interdisciplinary Campus Culture On April 14, 2020, Katy Rank Lev wrote the Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) news article The Future of AI is Female . Since artificial intelligence’s (AI) initial measurement, wrote Lev, CMU built AI. Lev wrote that each of the colleges CMU is representing contribute to make AI a new field, describing this AI as a frontier, humanity can democratize: from healthcare, the eventual goal area is education. In a rush, Lev cut the conversation short, and Lev mentioned CMU’s interdisciplinary campus culture as the source of the effective AI women, but this is despite women historically not represented as scientists, technologists, and engineers, and math (STEM), worldwide. But CMU is spotlighting undergraduate students and highly honored faculty members, and Lev is including these women because she agrees with the Women in Tech movement as far as the East is from the West: CMU is the best Computer Science University with AI, and this is IT at this point in

Drone Uses AI and 11,500 Crashes to Learn How to Fly

Learning to Fly by Crashing On 10 May, 2017, Evan Ackerman wrote the IEEE (Institute for Electricians and Electrical Engineers) SPECTRUM article Drone Uses AI and 11,500 Crashes to Learn How to Fly. In Ackerman’s article, Ackerman used a block quote by Carnegie Mellon University roboticists Dhiraj Gandhi, Lerrel Pinto; and Abhinav Gupta, the writers of a paper, “Learning to Fly by Crashing” (Gandhi, et. al., 27 Apr 2017). From Ackerman’s block quote from Gandhi, et. al., “[T]he gap between simulation and real world remains large especially for perception problems” (Gandhi, et. al.). Ackerman contrasted known motion from unconfirmed motion without identifying the pre-existing condition called Schrödinger’s cat in the case that the crashes shall eventually happen without outside help: a continuing crash failure, and in security terms this is interned as a false positive because this helps Schrödinger’s cat stay alive or rest buried in the soil. In this case, this drone detects these t
