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

My Response to the DHS and ICE Revoking International Student Visas

ACM Urges Preservation of Temporary Visa Exemptions for Nonimmigrant Students


Update: The Trump Administration Has Rescinded this Decision 


Tonight, on a visit to ACM.org, I was prompted: ACM Urges Preservation of Temporary Visa Exemptions for Nonimmigrant Students (link). The ACM (the Association for Computing Machinery) representative(s) wrote, “The open exchange of ideas and the freedom of thought and expression are central to the aims and goals of ACM” (ACM, July 2020). The ACM continued that this organization supports the statute of International Council for Science: free and responsible scientific practice is my fundamental attribute for scientific advancement, human wellness, and environmental wellness. Further, the ACM stated this: against the US DHS (Department of Homeland Security) and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency) revoking the current exempted students’ SEVP (Student and Exchange Visitor Program) status because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ACM practices computer research and education, respectfully. Also, this is so dependent on international graduate students already matriculated in USA-located universities and colleges that this final rule revoking and giving minimal notice for international students that this: during this pandemic, American graduate and undergraduate students will be confronted by this, reality. According to the ACM, this will, in the worst case, cause permanent damage against American education, and bad disruption at best.

Responding to the ACM

As a member of the ACM, I did not receive so much as an offer for input, here, so I have my blog, Bit Jet Kit, and I hope readers can understand how important speaking is against violent behavior, as violence has been seen against many in contemporary American culture. The Holy Bible discusses how to respond to fear: the spirit God, ABBA, has given the faithful. The Apostle Paul attributed his authorship to a second letter for a man he called his son, Timothy. The Apostle Paul (INT) said, “Not for has given us – God a spirit of cowardice but of power and of love and of self-control” (2 Timothy 1:7). I want international students receiving full government support: for their well-being. Although my blog is fledgling, now, so this is not yet time for many of them to read this post, I want this established: the DHS and ICE are recklessly endangering over one million entities who seek international relations with the United States of America. Without the technical and international legal commitment the international communities provide the United States of America, USA higher education is limited to internalized and isolated disputes. With President Donald J. Trump’s leadership, the alternative spirits of evil offer two things waiting against international students: a police officer’s gun and a psychiatrist’s syringe. As a JHU (The Johns Hopkins University) graduate student and a native-born American, and I do not want this anti-internationals movement happening. Do be alert, international students, and be safe. 

Update July 14, 2020:

According to Collin Binkley of AP (The Associated Press), the Trump Administration has reversed this decision, but federal officials gave one last missed punch: by law, online-only international students residing in the United States must transfer or leave (link). However, this did not help in this situation because of the high value academia instills with its students such as during a pandemic like SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19. The danger that international students were proposed for including disease, terrible health against years of recovery, and lack of career prospects is not part of any agreement I want the Trump Administration in public office with, now.

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
