back to article How to democratize ML? More public data, says MLCommons

Unless you're an English speaker, and one with as neutral an American accent as possible, you've probably butted heads with a digital assistant that couldn't understand you. With any luck, a couple of open-source datasets from MLCommons could help future systems grok your voice. The two datasets, which were made generally …

    Annoying like no other

    To have to hear idiots in public spaces talking to phone AI's when considerate people would be silently typeing.

    Heavenly Help or a Diabolical Plot via AIdDevelopments?

    Do y’all still think it is easy to know if and when you are conversing with a machine programmed to program you to subsequently, in the near not too distant future, respond positively to their stealthy instruction sets/surreal subliminal orders?

    And why, if it did, would it matter to you if you were not able/enabled to differentiate between a machine and humans, massively smart or otherwise? Do you think machines would care and give a fiddlers, and is the human fear of them not caring about sustaining and propagating established traditional human conditioning for future existence the ever present nightmare ....... and systemic intelligence block hastening a rapidly escalating self-destructive demise/prime idiot extinction events?

      I am not sure that I understand Mr Mars correctly. Is he talking about a Turing test for machines, so they will know whether they are speaking to another machine or to a mere human?

      Substitute alien for machine in the target “Heavenly Help or a Diabolical Plot via AIdDevelopments?” post and everything gets a great deal more interesting, but beware and be aware, for such is the fickle and timorous nature of far too many in the human condition, that there be some who may think to terrorise you with novel emerging information of which they had zero prior knowledge, and would have you believe such would be absolutely terrifying rather than anything else wonderfully extraordinary ......... Out of this World Otherworldly.

      More than just a little more about that very dilemma and the likelihood of such a crazy human response to its/their appearance is well penned to be viewed and commented on here ......... NASA may provoke alien invasion, scientists warn

      Seems like Uncle Sam, or is it UK’s Oxford University, is late to the party again. It’ll be interesting to see what benefits and delights to show their gratitude they would conspire and aspire to bring to the festivities. It’ll need to be something which doesn’t render them worthy of shunning and universal pariah status. It is the least that everybody who is anybody nowadays in these 0day spaces and virtual places has been extremely willing to pay and gratefully paid.

    Since when is democracy a good thing?

    Why should any AI have to put up with my broad dumb ass southern accent? Why can't people just conform to the model chosen by our digital overlords - the chosen ones that we worship with godlike devotion on social media?

    Opportunity lost

    If we'd realised that the blasted things would actually become popular enough that people are learning to speak the way their smart dooodads expect, we could have had a concerted push for Blighty AI.

    By now, we could've had Alexa users speaking RP, given Siri users purest Devonian and, of course, Cortana would only understand Brummy.

    Machine LANGUAGE

    Anybody else annoyed because ML means Machine Language and NOT Machine Learning?
