OpenAI zu geschlossen?

„The messy, secretive reality behind OpenAI’s bid to save the world – The AI moonshot was founded in the spirit of transparency. This is the inside story of how competitive pressure eroded that idealism. … There is a misalignment between what the company publicly espouses and how it operates behind closed doors. Over time, it has allowed a fierce competitiveness and mounting pressure for ever more funding to erode its founding ideals of transparency, openness, and collaboration. Many who work or worked for the company insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to speak or feared retaliation. Their accounts suggest that OpenAI, for all its noble aspirations, is obsessed with maintaining secrecy, protecting its image, and retaining the loyalty of its employees. … But more than anything, OpenAI’s nonprofit status made a statement. ‚It’ll be important to have a leading research institution which can prioritize a good outcome for all over its own self-interest,” the announcement said. ‚Researchers will be strongly encouraged to publish their work, whether as papers, blog posts, or code, and our patents (if any) will be shared with the world.‘ Though it never made the criticism explicit, the implication was clear: other labs, like DeepMind, could not serve humanity because they were constrained by commercial interests. While they were closed, OpenAI would be open. … Near the end of my interview with Rhodes, the former remote scholar, I ask her the one thing about OpenAI that I shouldn’t omit from this profile. ‚I guess in my opinion, there’s problems,‘ she begins hesitantly. ‚Some of them come from maybe the environment it faces; some of them come from the type of people that it tends to attract and other people that it leaves out.'“

Facebook News Feed

Facebook prototypes tabbed News Feed with Most Recent & Seen – Facebook may make it easier to escape its ranking algorithm and explore the News Feed in different formats. Facebook has internally prototyped a tabbed version of the News Feed for mobile that includes the standard Most Relevant feed, the existing Most Recent feed of reverse chronological posts that was previously buried as a sidebar bookmark and an Already Seen feed of posts you’ve previously viewed that historically was only available on desktop via the largely unknown URL facebook.com/seen.“

Firefox VPN auf Android

Firefox releases Android app for its VPN service – Mozilla, the organization behind the much-loved Firefox web browser, has experimented with creating a VPN service for some time.
