Video-LLaMA, Mechanical Turk, and EU AI Regulation

AI Daily | 6.15.23

Welcome to AI Daily, your go-to podcast for the latest updates in the world of artificial intelligence! In today's episode, we have some banger stories lined up for you. Join us as we dive into the exciting advancements in the realm of Mechanical Turk, the impact of AI in the EU Parliament, and a cutting-edge multimodal technology called Video LLaMA.

Key Points:

Video LLaMA

  • A new paper called Video LLaMA, which focuses on turning video and audio into text and understanding them better.

  • The paper addresses two main challenges: capturing temporal changes in video scenes and integrating audio and visual signals.

  • The model showcased in the paper demonstrates accurate predictions and understanding of videos, including analyzing images, audio, facial expressions, and speech.

  • The availability of the model for public use is uncertain as it is currently a research paper, but it highlights the potential of leveraging AI tools like Image Binds and audio transformers to enhance video understanding.

Mechanical Turk

  • A study reveals that a significant portion (around 36-44%) of text summarization tasks on Mechanical Turk are being done by AI models like ChatGPT instead of humans.

  • The displacement of human workers by synthetic models raises concerns about the availability and quality of real data for training larger language models like GPT-4 and GPT-5.

  • Detecting synthetic data generated by language models is challenging, and specialized classifiers may be required to distinguish between human-generated and AI-generated text.

  • The increasing reliance on AI models for tasks like text summarization may lead to the introduction of stricter verification measures, such as keystroke tracking or biometric testing, to ensure authenticity in online assessments and proctoring.

EU Parliament & AI

  • The EU Parliament is taking steps towards AI regulation, although the specifics and implications are unclear.

  • There are concerns about redundancy in creating separate AI-specific regulations when existing laws could cover related aspects such as data privacy.

  • The potential impact of AI regulation on startups and small players is uncertain, as compliance requirements and limitations on training AI models could arise.

  • The regulation aims to address issues like transparency, disclosure of AI-generated content, and prohibitions on certain applications like social scoring and real-time facial recognition. However, some argue that these issues can be legislated without directly tying them to AI.
