A look back at the me I used to be: Life Hacks by Charles Assisi

We don’t often see it, but life is defined by transition, that wily sidekick to change. Each phase is a chance to mourn a previous self, or celebrate a new you.

At University of Chicago, researchers have been testing the impact of poisoned datasets on AI-led image generators. Their findings state that even 50 poisoned images can alter the results generated by an AI model. Mix in about 300 poisoned images, they say, and Cubism may blend with anime, or a purse start to resemble a toaster.
