The Social Dilemma

1 Name: Anonymous 2020-09-16 00:04
hey /lounge/ have you seen this documentary? it's about how the internet is controlled by moneyed interests who use algorithms to collect immense amounts of user data and use it to create a personalized user experience that they can then use to manipulate how you think and ultimately engage with and behave in our modern society. It talks about how people are being fed lies by algorithms that learn about one's personal beliefs and create a feedback loop of confirmation bias. it talks about addiction to technology and social media and likens these phenomena to substance abuse and drug addiction.
