UN Wary Over Use of Artificial Intelligence

Published

on

The concept of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been under debate over the past decades. But recent advances have revamped what we can reach with robotics. As a result, some believe that they’re getting closer to an AI takeover – and the United Nations isn’t sitting idly by.  

Artificial Intelligence Defined

Before you dive into this Artificial Intelligence article, let’s define what AI is. Built-In Beta defines Artificial Intelligence as a wide-ranging branch of computer science concerned with building smart machines suited to do tasks that need human intelligence.

Search Enterprise AI, on the other hand, adds that its distinct functions include expert systems, speech awareness, usual language process, and machine vision. With those in mind, this tech surely offers a lot of pros to various industries.

Benefits of Artificial Intelligence

Here are some of the benefits various groups can gain from AI:

Attention To Detail

Most jobs need accuracy to the point that even a single mistake can cause severe damage. Humans can be exact, but they need to revive to take back their A-game again. For bots and advanced machines, teams don’t always have to worry about the certainty of their output because they are built with an eye for detail.

Availability 24/7

Humans need breaks. They need to balance their work and links. But for AI, the tech can work 24/7 without taking a break. As long as it has the data to perform the task, it can do repetitive jobs over and over again. 

Decision-Making Without Bias

The drive for most choices made by humans is mostly their feelings, while AI cuts through the emotional aspect and moves with clear and concise goals. They don’t have views, so they don’t think of using their bias as a lens.

Negative Effects of Artificial Intelligence

In a survey done by Pew Research Center in 2018, Americans worry about an increase in automation. In fact, 72 percent of the respondents are worried about a future wherein robots and computers can do human jobs, while 33 percent are more ready to accept these changes.

Possible Job Loss For Humans

People averse to AI fear that if bots dominate industries, then there will be fewer high-paying jobs for humans. For instance, driverless vehicles may pose a threat for those who drive for a living.

Lower Level Of Creativity

Most bots only follow what they were made to do. Although AI can learn new views over time, their creativity won’t grow.  An example of this is Quill, a bot that can write earning reports for Forbes. However, the output it creates can be quite stoic, devoid of human creativity and lines that can make the piece fun and exciting for readers.

The United Nations’ Stand on Artificial Intelligence

The United Nations wrote a page about the trials of Artificial Intelligence. They asked a very crucial question indeed: how can we make sure that algorithms don’t violate human rights, such as privacy and freedom of choice?

Many people in power call for an ethical scheme for the progress of AIe. This issue isn’t just for a single country; this is for a global level.

United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) pledges that it will be active in global plans. After all, the team has years of practice in the ethics of science and tech.

UNESCO is planning to search for the best solutions to ensure that the progress of AI offers benefits but also doesn’t cross efforts leading to a just and peaceful society. They believe that the future of AI is up to what policymakers do now to safeguard people’s basic rights while also paving the way towards a more developed society.

2021 Holiday Gift Guide for Mental Wellness

Published

on

We’ve got another Holiday Gift Guide for y’all! We know that 2021 isn’t much less stressful than 2020. And now that the holidays are coming up we need help more than ever. This season, give yourself (or a loved one in need of coping mechanisms) these mental wellness gifts. Here is our 2021 Holiday Gift Guide for mental wellness. 

1. CalmiGo

If you’re an asthmatic with anxiety, this product will seem familiar. CalmiGo is essentially an inhaler for panic attacks. With calming lights and a lavender scent, you can calm yourself in three minutes. That’s one whole song. Who can’t endure one song in order to calm yourself? Say goodbye to panicked breathing into a paper bag like a comedy movie from the 1980s. Say hello to CalmiGo. 

Buy it now for $199

2. Komuso Design

What looks like a styled piece of jewelry is actually a breathing exerciser… I think. After some scrolling through and hunting for how this necklace is supposed to work, the site tells you that “most people don’t breathe properly.” (What is “proper” breathing? Sounds like it involves a corset, no?) Komuso’s Shift helps you breathe by placing what looks like a whistle into your mouth and … breathe. Shifts are available “for her” and “for him” (because, as we all know, breathing is gendered). 

At best, you can use it as a thing to play with if you’re the kind of person who needs to fidget. 

Buy it now for $85

3. Somnox

Is it a pillow? Is it a stuffed animal (or amoeba?) Am I going to be cuddling with it? You bet. The Somnox is a Sleeping Robot that helps regulate your breathing as you sleep. Anyone who battles insomnia (anyone with anxiety) will love this adorable little cuddle bug. Just look at it! I’m immediately relaxed for that perfectly snuggleable buddy. 

Get on the waiting list now

4. Gravity Weighted Chunky Knit Blanket

There’s nothing like a great blanket in the dead of winter. Gravity Weighted Chunky Knit Blanket sounds warm already. I don’t even care to read more. Sold. It comes in the comfortable named colors olive, winter white, and grey (if you can’t find the comfort in “grey,” you’re not going to make it through winter, sorry). 

Buy it now for $229

5. Gradient Signe Floor and Table Lamp

The right lighting can make a big difference in terms of mental wellness. Don’t believe me? Then why do they have a dimmer setting? Hm? Riddle me that, smart guy. The Gradient Signe Floor and Table Lamp is a stylish lamp so minimal that you barely notice it’s there. This light seamlessly blends colors from one to the next. One look at it and I already feel soothed. 

Buy it now for $299

6. Acupuncture Mat

No, it’s not the bed of needles you’ll see in an Arabian marketplace. This Acupuncture Mat gently stimulates across the body so effectively that you can’t help but relax. Anyone with aches and pains will find immediate comfort in this bubble-wrap-looking mat. 

Buy it now for $65

7. Cefaly

Anyone who has ever had a migraine knows just how bad it can be. Some people have a routine for how to deal with them. This cute little device, Cefaly, has electrodes you stick to your head. This is a “consult your doctor” kind of device, but, hey, when you have a migraine, you’ll grab anything to prevent and/or treat it. 

Buy it now for $379

8. Muse 2

People who struggle with anxiety usually benefit from meditation. But anyone who has tried meditation is well aware of how difficult it can be to obtain that encompassing sense of silence. The Muse 2 is here to lend a helping hand that provides real time feedback on brain activity, heart rate, breathing, and body movement.

Holiday Gift Guide: LEGO Sets That You Need

Published

on

This holiday season, it’s important to never, ever let the child inside you die. That would be, like, totally lame. Anything we can do to foster that spark is worth the investment. Whether that’s with video games, board games, or epic Nerf battles, you need to encourage your youthful side to play. In my case, it’s LEGO. 

Here are some LEGO sets that will bring you back to childhood

Star Wars: The Mandalorian The Child 

The Child, Baby Yoda, or Grogu. It doesn’t matter as long as you can build him. This LEGO set, featuring 1,073 pieces, allows you to move his adorable little ears, posing you how you see fit. It’s impossible not to smile at a little LEGO Grogu, amirite? 

Buy it here for $79.99

Infinity Gauntlet

This 590-piece model of the iconic weapon from Avengers will have your enemies all over the known universe trembling that they may be reduced to dust. One snap, and the food crisis will suddenly become far more manageable. 

Buy it here for $69.99

Super Mario 64 Question Mark 

Don’t smack your head on this. Nothing will come out. Well, money won’t. Instead, you can fold out microscale levels including Peach’s Castle, Bob-omb Battlefield, Cool, Cool Mountain, and Lethal Lava Trouble. Play for hours with 2,064 pieces or fold it up and leave it on display for your guests to go, “?” 

Buy it here for $169.99 

Seinfeld Set 

What’s the deal with this 1,326-piece set? You can recreate classic Seinfeld moments, but in LEGO. Elaine’s goldfish, Kramer’s thirst-inducing pretzels, or sit around and yada yada yada about nothing. For fans of LEGO and Seinfeld alike, this set is definitely sponge-worthy. 

Buy it here for $79.99

Adidas Originals Superstar Athletic Shoe

Maybe you’re not as amused by a giant LEGO shoe as I am, but this set comes with real laces. 731 pieces make up this buildable version of the iconic sneaker. Since real shoes are best used on feet, it makes much more sense to put a LEGO shoe on display. 

Buy it here for $79.99

R2D2 

*excited beeps and whistles!* Recreate your favorite droid with this 2,314-piece set. This R2D2 is capable of head swiveling, periscope rising, and other gadgets and doodads so you can (kind of) pose him any way you choose. 

Buy it here for $199.99

Ship in a Bottle 

For those of you who have always wanted to build a ship in a bottle but never wanted to dedicate that much time or patience, LEGO is offering you a consolation prize. This 962-piece rainy-weekend project is surely just as satisfying as the incredibly time-consuming nautical hobby counterpart. 

Buy it here for $69.99

DC Batman Batmobile Tumbler 

If you like some hardcore goth-bro energy, then this LEGO batmobile set is for you. Boasting 2,049 pieces, the tumbler from the Nolan series is one of a kind. Featuring Batman and Joker minifigures, you can rule the night one brick at a time. 

Buy it here for $229.99

Titanic

Titanic-enthusiasts rejoice! Here is the most unsinkable model, a model that God himself could not sink. At a price more affordable than a one-way first-class ticket, you will spend as many hours to build this thing as it took to construct the actual Titanic. Featuring detailed interiors, you can build the famous Grand Staircase, smoking lounge, swimming pool, and much more. Just keep an eye out for that LEGO iceberg, roight ahead!

Buy it here for $629.99

NASA Space Shuttle Discovery 

Designed in collaboration with NASA, this Space Shuttle Discovery set coincides with the 40th anniversary of the very first shuttle flight. With 2,354 pieces, you can spend hours constructing this iconic piece of human aerospace history. There’s even a cute little Hubble Telescope you can build alongside. 

Buy it here for $199.99

Fender Stratocaster Guitar 

Recreate this iconic 1970s guitar made famous by Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton played, only LEGO. Make your musician friends seemingly jealous with this nonmusical set. 

Buy it here for $99.99

Darth Vader Helmet – $69.99

Recreate the famous dark lord’s helmet and feel the power of the dark side. With 834 pieces, you can immerse yourself into the world of the Sith and feel what it’s like to rule the galaxy. 

Buy it here for $69.99

There are many, many more LEGO sets out there to choose from. But these are the sets we think are awesome. However, when it comes to LEGOs, everything is awesome.
