Blog Links: Scientific American “Will Democracy Survive Big Data and Artificial Intelligence?”

By | March 5, 2017

A must read about how big data and artificial intelligence influences and will influence society. It is a series of articles in one feature article that tries to tackle the new big data revolution that is coming.

I like how it touches the controversy of “big nudge” (influencing choise through the big data). This is the very controversial area of fake news, political propaganda, influences the elections by manipulating the electorate etc.

Also the idea that the centralism is going to fail in the end opens up new perspectives on how the “big brother” style of societies (insert China here) tries to keep control using more and more extreme “big nudge” technics.
