Scientists Proved With A Help Of AI That Fingerprints Are Not Really Unique

Artificial intelligence appears to have helped revolutionize forensic science. It turned out that our knowledge about the uniqueness of fingerprints was false. Everyone knows that every person has unique fingerprints. A lesser-known fact, but nevertheless very important for forensic science, is that each finger of each person also has a unique fingerprint. More precisely, everyone thought so until now. It turned out that this is not entirely true.

Rabbit R1: AI Assistant That Manages Applications Instead Of The User

At CES 2024, startup Rabbit presented an unusual device called R1. The gadget manages mobile applications using AI algorithms and is positioned as a future alternative to traditional smartphones.

An AI Chatbot Was Taught To Hack Other AI Chatbots

Computer scientists from Nanyang Technological University have figured out how to compromise artificial intelligence (AI) chatbots. To do this, they trained a chatbot to create hints that allow them to bypass the protection of other AI-based chatbots. Singaporean researchers used a two-pronged large language model (LLM) hacking method called Masterkey. First, they reverse engineered how LLMs detect and defend against malicious queries. Using this information, they taught LLMs to automatically learn and offer hints that allowed them to bypass the security of other LLMs.
