AI, fuck technology, capitalism, oppression, fuckin what else do you want 

if you think for one freaking second machine learning and AI won't be used to further oppress and marginalize the already downtrodden the INSTANT it's ready to go you're deluding yourself. it's already happening.

In a people-based society I would be enthusiastic about that because it would mean less people had to waste their time doing menial repetitive jobs and could instead focus on improving themselves and learning something. And people would have to work fewer hours and have more time to spend with friends and family.

But we live in a money-based heathen society that worships money and the false prophets.

@selontheweb This is true of software, in fact computing, generally. One of the early uses of IBM's tabulating machines was keeping track of people in Nazi concentration camps.

The megacorps are continuing to amass more power through the use of software. Google, Facebook, and governments have been at odds with one another, but that's not going to last much longer. It's only going to get harder to stop them from here.

@selontheweb I can't believe I used to think that technology inherently empowered individuals. That only happens to the extent that we *make* it happen.
