pla update: Issue 1, February 4, 2022
/our-media/newsletters/pla-update/issue-1
A monthly newsletter focused on the internal and external affairs of the PLA
on strengthening military information security.   The CMC Logistics Support Department   issued   the “Interim Provisions on the Management of Military Materials Engineering Service Procurement Contracts,” which took effect on 3 January 2022. For defense contracts, the provisions aim to (1) improve contract management systems; (2) standardize contents; (3) optimize procedures, such as contract conclusion
Russian Air Campaign in Syria
/reports/2018/06/russian-air-campaign-in-syria
In this CNA Occasional Paper, Anton Lavrov, a noted Russian expert on military air operations, examines the successes and failures of Russia’s air operation in Syria. He identifies the key structural changes and capability upgrades that made the operation possible. The operation allowed the Russian military to test new equipment and to rotate personnel through the theater of operations in order to gain battle experience. As it continued, the force became more effective, as its leaders learned how to operate in a battle environment for the first time in almost 30 years. The Russian Aerospace Forces’ actions in the conflict increased the combat effectiveness of Russia’s small contingent of forces in Syria and allowed government forces to attain success on the ground. The conduct of the operation can be used as a means of understanding the capabilities and tactics that the force may be expected to use in future operations.

ai with ai: PROGRESS Out of the Blue
/our-media/podcasts/ai-with-ai/season-4/4-4
Andy and Dave have a chat with Chad Jenkins, Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan, Director of the Laboratory for Perception, RObotics, and Grounded REasoning SystemS (PROGRESS), and newest member of CNA's Board of Trustees. They discuss Chad's background and his current research at Michigan, which includes interactive robot systems and human-robot interaction. And then they discuss a variety of topics ranging from movement primitives, neural networks and fat tails, the issue of reinvention, students' experiences with AI research and the role of historical research, the culture of research in AI, and much more.

ai with ai: The (Creepy) Aristobots (part 2)
/our-media/podcasts/ai-with-ai/season-2/2.43b
This week, Microsoft Research and the University of Montreal show that machines can learn through interactive language by answering questions (question answering with interactive text, or QAit). The Allen Institute for AI’s Aristo system, a suite of eight solves, can pass (90%+) the New York 8th Grade regents science exams (for non-diagram, multiple-choice questions), and can exceed 83% on the 12th-grade exam, though Melanie Mitchell suggests the achievement may not be as profound as it seems. A “meta-research” paper from Milan and Klagenfurt takes a broader look at neural network research and highlights concerns of reproducibility (or lack thereof) as well as utility (or lack thereof, where simple heuristic methods can outperform the neural networks). From a workshop organized by Max Tegmark and Emilia Javorsky, a group of diverse authors produced a “possibility of a middle road” look at roadmapping a way ahead for Autonomous Weapons Systems. An opinion piece from Zachary Kallenborn on War on the Rocks looks at What If the US Military Neglects AI? A paper in Nature provides an overview of open-ended evolution, as a part of artificial life. Gary Marcus and Ernest Davis publish a book on Rebooting AI: Building AI We Can Trust. The 57th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics occurred at the end of July, and Kate Koidan provides a summary of the top trends. The IEEE ranks robot creepiness with the top 100 creepy robots. Booz Allen releases a documentary on the Dawn of Generation AI. And the Naval Facilities Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center (NAVFAC EXWC) will host an industry day conference on cyber, control systems, and machine learning in December.

ai with ai: Countering AI Classifiers, and Introducing Doubt to AI
/our-media/podcasts/ai-with-ai/season-1/1-13
Andy and Dave discuss a newly announced method of attack on the speech-to-text capability DeepSpeech, which introduces noise to an audio waveform so that the AI does not hear the original message, but instead hears a message that the attacker intends. They also discuss the introduction of probabilistic models to AI as a way for AI to "embrace uncertainty" and make better decisions (or perhaps doubt whether or not humans should remain alive). And finally, Andy and Dave discuss some recent applications of AI to different areas of scientific study, particularly in the examination of very large data sets.

ai with ai: Life Is Like a Box of Matrices
/our-media/podcasts/ai-with-ai/season-3/3-38
Andy and Dave start with COVID-related AI news, and efforts from the Roche Data Science Coalition for UNCOVER (the United Network for COVID-19 Data Exploration and Research), which includes a dataset of a curated collection of over 200 publicly available COVID-19 related datasets; efforts from Akai Kaeru are included. The Biomedical Engineering Society publishes an overview of emerging technologies to combat COVID-19. Zetane Systems uses machine learning to search the DrugVirus database and information from the National Center for Biotechnology to identify existing drugs that might be effective against COVID. And researchers at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research are using machine learning to narrow down a space of 41 million compounds to identify candidates for further testing. And the IEEE hosted a conference on 9 July, "Does your COVID-19 tracing app follow you forever?" In non-COVID-related AI news, MIT takes offline the TinyImages dataset, due to its inclusion of derogatory terms and images. The second (actually first) wrongful arrest from facial recognition technology (again by the Detroit Police Department) comes to light. Appen Limited releases its annual "State of AI and ML" report, with a look at how businesses are (or aren’t) considering AI technologies. Anaconda releases its 2020 State of Data Science survey results. And the International Baccalaureate Educational Foundation turn to machine learning algorithms to predict student grades, due to COVID-related cancelations of actual testing, and much to the frustration of numerous students and parents. Research from the Vector Institute and the University of Toronto tackles analogy and the Raven Progressive Matrices with an ensemble of three neural networks for objects, attributes, and relationships. Researchers at the University of Sydney and the Imperial College London have established CompEngine, a collection of time-series data (over 24,000 initially) from a variety of fields, and have placed them into a common feature space; CompEngine then self-organizes the information based on empirical properties. Garfinkel, Shevtsov, and Guo make Modeling Life available for free. Meanwhile, Russell and Norvig release the not-so-free 4th Edition of AI: A Modern Approach. Lex Fridman interviews Norvig in a video podcast. And Elias Henriksen creates the Computer Prophet, which generates metaphors from a database of collected sayings.
