We are all trapped in the “Feed” – Om on Tech

The algorithms lack a depth of understanding and context, despite knowing so much.

No matter where I go on the Internet, I feel like I am trapped in the “feed,” held down by algorithms that are like axes trying to make bespoke shirts out of silk. And no one illustrates it better than Facebook and Twitter, two more services that should know better, but they don’t.

I am so fed up of being sold the promise of better content and better adverts if I give up my personal information. The reality is that all the promises are fake, the companies serve nothing than the lowest denominator and much of the intelligence promised is complete rubbish.

If this is what is to be expected from the best AI company in the world I think humanity has nothing to fear from robots. They will presume the whole population has been wiped out because a few of us died.
