Machines are getting too good at judging humans
Code:
Kaggle, a San Francisco-based startup that hosts data science competitions, has uncovered some disconcerting insights about human behavior in its two-year run. At times, its founders have been surprised by the accuracy of an algorithm, and the competitions continue to evoke controversy.
In short, data can be dangerous.

I found the 2) “The Twitter psychopathy competition” especially interesting. Now imagine what can be done using
Facebook data.

Without sounding like a conspiracy theorist, I can't image what governments are doing with all we've said on the
internet (facebook, twitter, forums, sms, skype, phone, etc. etc.).

That's another reason not to become a technology slave.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

And that was several months ago. Don't want to imagine what can do now; technology is advancing too fast and the worst thing is that people is happy to let anybody know about their lives.

Yeah, it may sound like a conspiracy but I think this is pretty real.
