U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) publishes AI guidance

The National Security Agency (NSA) has released a new guide called "Deploying AI Systems Securely: Best Practices for Deploying Secure and Resilient AI Systems." This guide, created by the NSA’s Artificial Intelligence Security Center (AISC) and developed in partnership with several international cybersecurity agencies, is designed to help organizations, especially those in national security and defense, securely integrate AI systems.

The guide offers practical advice for handling AI in environments that face significant security threats and is part of the AISC's broader effort to improve AI system security by addressing vulnerabilities and adapting to new security challenges.

Grok-1.5 vision preview

Elon Musk's AI company, xAI, has introduced Grok-1.5 Vision (Grok-1.5V), a multimodal model that processes text as well as visual content like documents, diagrams, and photos. Set to be released to early testers and current users soon, Grok-1.5V matches or surpasses other leading models in various domains.

It can perform tasks ranging from converting sketches into code to diagnosing wood rot. This advancement comes shortly after the update of their Grok-1.5 chatbot and amidst ongoing efforts to enhance AI capabilities, despite recent controversies.


Generative AI is coming for healthcare

Generative AI is rapidly advancing in healthcare, driven by major tech firms and startups, aiming to enhance services like patient intake personalization and medical database analysis. Companies like Google Cloud, Amazon's AWS, and Microsoft Azure are creating AI tools focusing on tasks from triaging patient messages to analyzing social health determinants.

However, the efficacy and readiness of these AI applications in healthcare are debated. Concerns include AI's limitations in handling complex medical situations and potential risks like perpetuating biases or misdiagnosing conditions, as evidenced by studies showing high error rates in AI-powered diagnostics.
