According to grape, the world's first AI candidate is running for mayor in Tama City, Tokyo. The AI is actually the avatar for mayoral candidate Michito Matsuda who wants to use artificial intelligence to "conduct impartial and balanced politics". Meanwhile The Guardian calls Facebook a tyranny maybe from its questionable use of AI? and warns that governments are not built to stop it. Oh, and if you don't want to delete Facebook, maybe get this.
The nefarious uses of our personal data abound. If Cambridge Analytica can get it, what’s stopping a government from getting it, too? The greatest tyranny yet would be the merging of corporate monopoly and governmental power to create the most invasive surveillance state in history.
Many ideas for regulatory reforms to protect privacy fail to address the governance problems we face. Our government was not built to counter the tyranny of the global corporation.
