I must admit that I tend to agree that computer voices should be obviously computer voices. I am using a number of text to speech systems at the moment and I don't want to use something that cannot be distinguished from a human being.

AI debates with humans & kind of interesting how the AI seems to need a human synthetic face & body to be more effective, but even so it drew with its human opponents:

Short video on how Chinese government is using AI against people who do anti-social things like jay walk etc. The technology can identify folk and the police have glasses that link into the government data base of individuals. No idea how well all of this tech works, but get caught too many times and you get sent to a correction centre, go there too many times and it becomes your permanent address:

This is an interesting article on AI and there processors needed:

https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2018/07 ... arms-race/

if this is right then NVDIA who have lead the race are now producing chips that are too general whereas lots of competitors are working on chips that are tailored to the needs of AI.

If any of this is true, I am minded to believe it, then we can expect significant gains in AI hardware as folk switch to chips specifically optimised for AI rather than just general function.

This is the most amazing technology & imho very dangerous even now & getting better:

How do you defend against weaponisation of this technology?
