A NSW parliamentary inquiry into building standards has recommended the establishment of a building commission and the extension of statutory warranties for building defects, as the state government tries to get its own bill on the issue through the lower house.The Public Accountability Committee on Wednesday released its first report on building standards, quality and disputes, making 19 recommendations to improve the industry.
Artificial intelligence systems can write pretty convincingly readable text these days. A new browser extension,, can test whether a given text is likely to have been generated by an AI.
I made a chrome extension that tells you the likelihood that the selected text was generated by an AI. Have a look everyone!

The extension (by Guilio Starace and available for bothand ) works by using OpenAI’s GPT-2 text generator and checking whether the generator’s output is similar to the text you are curious about. If you’d rather not install a browser extension, you can paste text into instead.
How To Find Your Chromebook's End-of-Life Date
At some point, all of our spiffy new devices will become old and decrepit. Warranties run out, hardware improves, and companies only support their products with software or firmware updates for a limited amount of time. To help you figure out when your Chromebook will reach its end-of-support date, Google will soon add this information to the Chrome OS settings menu. To find your Chromebook’s “expiration” date when the feature launches, open the settings menu, then go to “About Chrome OS”> “Additional details.” The end-of-support date will be listed under “Update Schedule.” We’re currently running Chrome OS version 78.0.3904.
It works best with text that comes from GPT-2, but Janelle Shane tested it on some other types of AI-generated text and found that it detects them pretty well. (Shane is a, and author of a new book on artificial intelligence called You Look Like a Thing and I Love You. An AI is responsible for that title.)
it correctly (as far as I know) flags these blurbs as human-written

The extension identified posts I’ve personally written as not AI-generated. (Phew, I’m not secretly a computer!) I also tried it on the Lifehacker headlines I generated in(“The Best Way to Buy a Job Interview,” “How to Make Your Own Podcast Bar”), and it correctly identified them as computer generated. Give it a try and see what you find!
Let This AI Show You How To Begin Your Novel .
It must be the future, because I’m taking writing advice from a computer. I’ve always been a fan of Janelle Shane’s AI experiments, because they’re adorably goofy, like the computer is just starting to learn the ways of human language, or concepts like recipes or colours. But her latest creation writes beginning sentences of novels, and it’s a genius. I am, or was.
