Will tech giants move on from the internet, now we’ve all been harvested?

quote [ Internet users have fed firms their personal data – which in turn is feeding the rapid growth of AI. Has the industry consumed all it needs from the web? ]

Data is the new lifeblood of capitalism – don't hand corporate America control

Interesting take on things, not the first time I've heard someone wonder about how long they'll bother to keep us all around.

Humans will still be required to scrape dynamic things like language lexicons for advertising and targeted information presentation. But, an idea I was playing around with a while back, where because neural nets are relational to the data presented, its only a matter of time before a system of linked neural networks intended to monitor human feedback data will create their own internal model of humanity that will grow more and more detached from reality as their internal communications outweigh the data they receive from outside world. Kind of like how we look at our pets. We think we have an idea of what they're doing and what's going on in their heads, but in reality we project a lot of our own mistaken views about behavior onto them and ignore that much of what they do is reflex and instinct.

And that's why that porn ended up in my browser history.

Deepfaked porn even.

I look forward to the day when you can just find someone’s Facebook and load up virtual porn of them with their face/body/voice.

Someone will come out with an automated application for doing the face from facebook by the end of the year, I'm sure.

Oh look. My own Facebook profile.


Would you do me, me? I’d do me. Ya, who is a dirty little mookie?

We're all dirty Lil mookies at heart.

We haven't been harvested yet. Just because they own my DNA... I mean, I still have the freedom to control when I want to pee- and Jeff Benzos has to wait for that moment to listen in real time no matter how many algorithms predict when I have to pee and subtle ads suggest I have to pee right now. And furthermore, pee. Be right back.
