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.

If you don't know how to ignore a message, complain to me and I will be happy to demonstrate.
