Google looks to outside experts to guide work on controversial AI issues


first_img Read Google Home Hub review Share your voice 0 Sarah Tew/CNET Chris Monroe/CNET Mentioned Above Apple iPhone XS (64GB, space gray) Read the AirPods review $90 at Daily Steals via Google Express An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free. $520 at HP Google,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. Other Labor Day sales you should check out Best Buy: In addition to some pretty solid MacBook deals that have been running for about a week already, Best Buy is offering up to 40% off major appliances like washers, dryers and stoves. There are also gift cards available with the purchase of select appliances. See it at Best BuyDell: Through Aug. 28, Dell is offering an extra 12% off various laptops, desktops and electronics.

See it at GlassesUSALenovo: The tech company is offering a large assortment of deals and doorbusters through Labor Day, with the promise of up to 56% off certain items — including, at this writing, the IdeaPad 730S laptop for $700 (save $300).See it at LenovoLensabl: Want to keep the frames you already love and paid for?

Lenovo Smart Clock: $59.99 (save $20) See at Turo Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand. It’s a little smaller than the Amazon Echo Show 5, but also a full $30 less (and tied with Prime Day pricing) during this Best Buy Labor Day sale. The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. Comments $155 at Google Express Getty Images Google on Tuesday said it’s established an external advisory council to guide its development of artificial intelligence. The Advanced Technology External Advisory Council (ATEAC) will advise the company on topics like facial recognition and fairness in machine learning. Last year in a blog post, Google CEO Sundar Pichai shared Google’s AI Principles, a series of ethical guidelines on the development and use of AI. The ATEAC is designed to “complement the internal governance structure and processes that help us implement the principles,” Kent Walker, Google’s senior vice president of global affairs, said in a post. He also discussed the council’s establishment at MIT Technology Review’s EmTech Digital conference in San Francisco.Members of the inaugural council include Alessandro Acquisti, a behavioral economist and privacy researcher; De Kai, a natural language processing researcher; and Dyan Gibbens, CEO of Trumbull, a startup that works in automation.Those members will serve on the council through 2019, and will hold four meetings beginning next month. Google plans to publish a report summarizing those conversations. “We hope this effort will inform both our own work and the broader technology sector,” Walker wrote. “In addition to consulting with the experts on ATEAC, we’ll continue to exchange ideas and gather feedback from partners and organizations around the world.” Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast.

Sarah Tew/CNET Turo Preview • iPhone XS is the new $1,000 iPhone X Formerly known as the Google Home Hub, Google’s Nest Hub packs a wealth of Google Assistant goodness into a 7-inch screen. At $59, this is within a buck of the best price we’ve seen. It lists for $129 and sells elsewhere in the $89-to-$99 range.This is one item of many available as part of eBay’s Labor Day Sale (which, at this writing, doesn’t specifically mention Labor Day, but that’s how it was pitched to us). Tags I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. $999 Tidal 3-month family subscription: $5.99 (save $54) Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners. See Itlast_img read more


Supportive spouses boost wellbeing


first_imgPeople with supportive spouses may experience more personal growth, happiness, psychological well-being, and better relationships, a study suggests. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University in the US found that people with supportive spouses were more likely to take on potentially rewarding challenges. “We found support for the idea that the choices people make at these specific decision points — such as pursuing a work opportunity or seeking out new friends — matter a lot for their long-term well-being,” said Brooke Feeney, lead author of the study published in the journal Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe researchers brought 163 married couples into the lab and gave one member of each couple a choice: either solve a simple puzzle, or they were given an opportunity to compete for a prize by giving a speech. They then recorded the couples’ interactions as they decided whether to take on the challenge.Participants with more encouraging partners were substantially more likely to decide to compete for the prize, while those with partners who discouraged them or expressed a lack of confidence more often chose the simple puzzle.last_img read more


Tracing the changing face of Indian contemporary art


first_imgFusing together some of the finest works from well established artists, the art exhibition at All India Fine Arts and Crafts Society aims to serve the audience a visual bonanza. Titled Genesis-18, the art show will be held from June 1-7. Genesis-18 is an exposition by 34 artists in a manner that traces a timeline of developments in style, themes and schools of what has emerged today as Indian contemporary art.The striking feature of the works of the participating artists is the manner in which they straddle diverse cultures whilst still voicing the present context of Indian social, cultural and political life. The canvases provide an introspective and sometimes uneasy glimpse into modern India, yet are collectively global in their presentation. This exhibition is a recognition of and respect for the influential antecedents of this genre of art. Clearly, the map has changed as these works demonstrate figurative and abstract, impatient yet unhurried, ancient spirituality fused with modern culture.It is amazing to discern the similarity in the direction of thoughts of all artists, coming from diverse milieus and diverse backgrounds.last_img read more
