In the third and final installation of our podcast miniseries on artificial intelligence, produced in association with Darktrace, we delve into the realm of AI fighting AI—or what researchers refer to as "adversarial AI."

Adversarial artificial intelligence can take many forms—as a tool for hacking through AI-powered security of other systems, for example, or deceiving another algorithm with input that causes a specific, fake result. Ars editors Sean Gallagher and Lee Hutchinson spoke with the leader of the winning team from the 2016 Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Cyber Grand Challenge, ForAllSecure CEO David Brumley, about advancements in AI-driven hacking. Lujo Bauer, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at the Institute for Software Research at Carnegie Mellon, joined Lee and Sean to talk about his research into ways to use AI to defeat technologies such as facial recognition. And Max Heinemeyer, director of threat hunting at Darktrace, discussed research already being done into how to stop AI-driven attacks on computer networks.

Anti-vaxxers wage war in Conn., lawmaker calls vaccines “witches brew”

The battle over vaccinations ramped up in Connecticut this week as state lawmakers narrowly advanced a bill—with last-minute amendments—aimed at banning religious vaccine exemptions for children.

If passed, the measure will no longer allow parents to cite their religious beliefs as a valid reason not to provide their children with life-saving immunizations, which are otherwise required for entry into public and private schools and daycares.

The legislature’s public health committee passed the bill Monday in a 14-11 vote but not before making a last-minute amendment that would grandfather in children who already have such an exemption. As passed, the amended legislation would only apply to children newly enrolling.

LG’s 2020 flagship smartphone is LG V60 ThinQ

Ars Technica - February 26, 2020 - 11:32pm

Mobile World Congress had to stay home sick this year with the coronavirus, but that's not stopping the mobile industry from making a bunch of announcements this week. LG has announced its obligatory Snapdragon 865 smartphone: the "LG V60 ThinQ."

The phone has Qualcomm's latest SoC, the Snapdragon 865, along with the X55 5G modem. LG's spec sheet does not say what kind of 5G (really, LG?) but Android Police reports that there is "mmWave exclusive to Verizon, and sub-6 for everyone, including AT&T." The phone has a 6.8-inch 2460×1080 OLED display, 8GB of RAM, 128GB or 256GB of storage, a microSD slot, and a 5000mAh battery. There are four holes in the rear-camera array but only three cameras: a 64MP main camera, 13MP wide-angle, and two holes for a time-of-flight camera for 3D effects. Like every other Snapdragon 865, 5G-packing smartphone we've seen so far, this is a lot bigger than last year's device. The LG V50 measured 159.2 x 76.1 x 8.3 mm, while the V60 is bigger in every direction: 169.3 x 77.6 x 8.9mm.

Also like the LG V50, the V60 again has an optional second screen attachment, This makes the phone look a bit like a Microsoft Surface Duo without any of the striking good looks. The second screen is the same as the first: a 6.8-inch 2460×1080 OLED display, and there's even a  2.1-inch monochrome screen on the front, which shows the time, date, battery level, and notification icons. The case is powered by the phone by plugging into the USB-C port, and for charging with the case on, you get a Mag-Safe-style magnetic charging connector. It's kind of neat that's it's reversible, but it's also a proprietary charger to worry about.

First Amendment doesn’t apply on YouTube; judges reject PragerU lawsuit

YouTube is a private forum and therefore not subject to free-speech requirements under the First Amendment, a US appeals court ruled today. "Despite YouTube's ubiquity and its role as a public-facing platform, it remains a private forum, not a public forum subject to judicial scrutiny under the First Amendment," the court said.

PragerU, a conservative media company, sued YouTube in October 2017, claiming the Google-owned video site "unlawfully censor[ed] its educational videos and discriminat[ed] against its right to freedom of speech."

PragerU said YouTube reduced its viewership and revenue with "arbitrary and capricious use of 'restricted mode' and 'demonetization' viewer restriction filters." PragerU claimed it was targeted by YouTube because of its "political identity and viewpoint as a non-profit that espouses conservative views on current and historical events."
