But … but … but … you can’t hold Silicon Valley billionaires to account with human laws and ethics. They are gods (they tell us so every day,) and as such are above the law and may never be questioned.
This is an excellent article on an issue that is bothering more and more people as the ecxesses of the tech giants stack up. One thing that would help is better education on how computer hardware and software systems do not ‘think’ but actually work by parsing data and matching strings. Everything above that level is programmed by humans. This would help people understand that “Artificial Intelligence” is just Geek mythology and thus feel less in awe of computers.
