    What I (personally) fear is if computers can learn as they go along (and it appears we reached that threshold 5 years ago (also in the episode)), then they can be turned against us on purpose. Like hacking, and stealing information that really matters like bank accounts, insurance documents, retirement savings, etc. How you ask? Right now, human thieves have limitations to what harm they can cause because they can't get around certain security measures and protocols. Remember, if you didn't know already, over 90% of all data breaches, and successful phishing scams, and money grabs are caused by humans in the loop that have let the scumbags in. Arbitrarily clicking hot links on BS emails, or having useless weak passwords, etc. But aside from that, let's say you are not exposed from a dummy within your midst. AI comes in to the picture and now a computer is learning as it goes on how to find the vulnerabilities that a human scumbag can't. The possibilities are limitless.

    The genius of James Cameron in writing Terminator. It is exactly how this is shaping up in the early stages of AI.

    My sister sent me an Alexa for Christmas last year, i sent it back. Camera on my laptop I am using now has a piece of electric tape covering it, been there since I got the computer. Siri is turned off on the two iphones and ipads in the house. I don't know if turning off those "assistants" will help but hope so!

    Good going!

    Turn off location services too. At least until you need to use your map or gps. Then turn it off again! Those scumbags are triangulating your movement with it on!

    II like that the phone is recording my location. On more than one occasion, I've gone into the Google map timeline to see where I was on a particular day at a particular time.

    It can be a very useful tool for many things. That is why it is so disappointing that they can't separate a great concept and technological innovation from their incessant parasitism and need for owning us digitally!

    Too bad they can never be trusted!

    Hey, Emperor even if you try to stay away from the data mining assholes your data is never safe no matter where you go. Check out the below article and yes they operate hospitals here in LA.

    That is sad!

    I am a true blue capitalist, and I have never been for breaking up big companies, but these companies are run by scumbags that couldn't care less about privacy, liberty, or freedom. They are part of the machine! They understand (all too well), that he who controls the data, controls the power over the populous!

    I did notice in the article that they fully intend to deploy AI algorithms within this scheme.

    Heaven help us!
