Subject: AI Researchers Create Video to Call for Autonomous Weapons Ban at UN
Date: 14 November 2017 at 05:37:55 GMT

Dear Paulo,

Thank you again for signing the 2015 open letter on autonomous weapons! This week, the United Nations Convention on Conventional Weapons began discussions to consider a treaty to ban autonomous weapons. 

At a UN side event hosted by the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots, AI researcher Stuart Russell unveiled a short film, depicting a disturbing future in which lethal autonomous weapons have become cheap and ubiquitous. The video is fiction, but it represents a scenario that could become all too real if we don’t act soon. 

We encourage you to watch the video below, share the video, and keep up with our efforts to ban lethal autonomous weapons at autonomousweapons.org.

[rede.APPIA] PhD and Post-doc openings (DeepSPIN project)

Hi all,
I’m posting this message to advertise this position to former LxMLS participants.
The University of Lisbon will soon be announcing 3 PhD student and 3 post-doctoral positions for my forthcoming ERC-funded project DeepSPIN (“Deep Structured Prediction in Natural Language Processing”). This 5-year frontier research project will start in January 2018, and it also involves Unbabel, a vibrant start-up doing AI-powered crowd-sourced translation. Detailed information about the positions and how to apply can be found at:
(The application deadline is December 2017, but there’s flexibility about the dates depending on the candidate’s availability. For example, PhD students finishing next year can still apply to the post-doc position.)
I would be grateful if you could circulate this information in your department or among any potentially interested colleagues or young researchers you may know.
Thanks, and best regards,
