MIT takes down massive dataset that trains AI systems to use racist, misogynistic slurs

MIT has taken offline a massive and highly-cited dataset that trained AI systems to use racist and misogynistic terms to describe people, The Register reports. The training set — called 80 Million Tiny Images, as that’s how many labeled images it’s scraped from Google Images — was created in 2008 to develop advanced object detection techniques. It has been …

Researchers develop radar that lets cars see around corners

Researchers at a US university have developed a new kind of radar which — when equipped with some AI wizardry — can help cars see round corners. Princeton university engineers have created a type of Doppler radar, typically used to catch speeding cars, that bounces radio waves off stationary objects to effectively “see” around corners. Coupled …
