A Stalker's Dream: Startup Scraped Billions of Images From Social Media for Facial Recognition AI

An artificial intelligence start-up that has scraped billions of images from social media websites – in likely violation of the sites' terms of service – for facial recognition use by law enforcement agencies is renewing concerns among privacy advocates who fear that the technology could eventually make stalking a complete stranger as easy as taking a picture. The company, Clearview AI, Inc. , was

Resistant Mindsets, Resilient Resets

In Psychology of Intelligence Analysis, Richards J. Heuer writes, “A mind-set is neither good nor bad. It is unavoidable. It is, in essence, a distillation of all that analysts think they know about a subject. It forms a lens through which they perceive the world, and once formed, it resists change.” There are myriad examples of resistant mindsets – of inaccurate mental maps that do not reflect the operational terrain – in business, particularly as you proceed up the corporate hierarchy.

The Frontlines of the Streaming Wars

With Disney and Apple entering the arena, we reviewed some of the ideas posited by SumZero contributors to examine how these two giants are shaping the competition for subscription-based video and how companies like Apple and Netflix – the 6th and 7th most-searched for companies on SumZero – are being affected.

Uncommon Knowledge - On Writing the Common App Essay

The Common App Essay is one of the most wildly misunderstood parts of the college application process. Prima facie, it seems like a simple enough task: write an essay of 650 words or less that responds to one of seven prompts, all of which contain innocuous questions that seem to be more or less on par with the tedious inquiries about interests and problem-solving that one might encounter at an entry-level corporate job interview. Despite its appearance of ease, however, it is the one component

How ‘Hollywood Weapons’ Green Beret Host Terry Schappert Would Train The Rebel Alliance in ‘Star Wars'

During a conversation with retired Green Beret Master Sergeant Terry Schappert , you could find yourself talking about anything. He is conversant on topics ranging from film history to literature to the physics of firing a .454 Casull pistol underwater, speaking with an engaging erudition often punctuated with laughter that belies his physical gravitas....

Kickstarter Campaign Claims to Have Developed 'Molecular Coffee:' But What Does That Actually Mean?

Kickstarter Campaign Claims to Have Developed 'Molecular Coffee:' But What Does That Actually Mean? When Carl Sagan said that "if you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe," the observation was less on baked confections than it was on cosmic connectedness: the fact that everything in our universe emerged from something else. To truly make an apple pie – or anything else – from scratch, you'd have to first make each of its components, including those that you

DARPA Seeks to Make AI Robots More Moral and Less Potentially Psychopathic By Teaching Them Manners

DARPA Seeks to Make AI Robots More Moral and Less Potentially Psychopathic By Teaching Them Manners In the original 1979 Alien, the crew of the Nostromo is effectively sabotaged by its science officer, Ash, a Hyperdyne Systems 120-A/2 android programmed to ensure that Weyland-Yutani obtains a living xenomorph specimen, regardless of the cost to human life in doing so. In doing so, Ash deceives his human colleagues, violates security protocol (disobeying a direct order), and later tries to murde

How the Bleak New 'Game of Thrones' Teaser Relates to the Destruction of the Great Sept and the Wall

How the Bleak New 'Game of Thrones' Teaser Relates to the Destruction of the Great Sept and the Wall As we approach its 8th and final season, we've re-examined our coverage of Game of Thrones over the last four years, partly in search of clues as to how the series will play out when it premieres on April 14th and partly in search – perhaps in vain – of some underlying logic or law aside from Lex Talionis that might guide the show's jarring deaths, horrifying twists of fate, and unexpected resur
