Over 130,000 employees in the U.K. and abroad are now being managed by AI, according to ZeroHedge

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-08/creepy-ai-monitoring-uk-employees-work-tasks-real-time

Duties of the new algorithm, known as Izaak:

*monitor who emails whom

*monitor worker collaboration

*detect who wields influence

*allocate workload

*generate reports to upper management

*assess personnel files

*generate insights on each employee

Quote
Critics say workers will be under mind-numbing pressure to constantly perform for fear of being singled out by the AI.

Quote
Workers do not automatically have a right to see the data, which is controlled by the employer.

Quote
Thus far, Isaak has gathered data on more than a billion actions.

Quote
"People are deemed not to be working if they take their hands off the keyboard for five minutes. But they could be thinking, and that doesn’t get measured. What is this doing for innovation, which needs creative workers?"

Bloomberg reported this week that Amazon pays employees to listen in on conversations between Alexa and people who use it, according to seven employees who violated a non-disclosure agreement to speak out.

Amazon justifies this practice, saying that it's necessary in order to teach speech recognition to Alexa.

The far right side of the first chart below suggests in simple terms what "their" plans are for us, besides as emotional energy storage batteries for when "they" need a feeding.  The second chart below explains why:

NVIDIA is now able to take any original film and completely alter the setting, as done with the seasons of the year and time of day in the clips below, per Secureteam 10.  One wonders whether any films can now reliably be admissible as evidence in court:

A young man in New York was falsely arrested after a store facial recognition camera incorrectly confused him with a criminal wanted for a rash of burglaries.  Fortunately, the boy had a solid alibi: he was at his high school prom on the night of the crime spree.

He is suing Apple, the maker of the facial recognition software, for one billion USD.

Bloomberg posted a disturbing article explaining that customers who carry their cell phones inside of a store may be tracked all the way home, and everywhere in-between, by the store as part of data now available for a price to retailers hoping to adjust their marketing techniques to correspond to their clientelle's overall habits and lifestyle.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-04-27/retailers-are-tracking-where-you-shop-and-where-you-sleep


Data on where cell-phone-carrying customers live was collected by Placer.ai and sold to Taco Bell.

According to the Bloomberg article, one data collector, UberMedia, data-mines 800 million cell phones per month and has information on 14 trillion locations collected over nearly 5 years.

They then study the Census for even more data to add to our profiles:

Quote
To glean details, including an individual’s age, income, ethnicity, education level, number of children and more, firms connect the phone’s evening location with U.S. Census data.

Psychological information about you is also deduced:

Quote
Location data isn’t the only thing being tracked. There’s also psychographic data, which includes a person’s behavior and spending habits, and social-media chatter.

The article named another data-miner, Spatial.ai, which monitors on-line conversations and sells transcripts or summaries of them to retailers in the area in which the conversations took place. 

Quote
“You get a much better sense of the commuting patterns of the community that utilizes your (shopping) center, and it’s oftentimes quite revelatory,” Taylor said.

Bloomberg says that the more scrupulous data-miners which give out less personal information about people are punished by losing customers to data gatherers which collect and sell more revealing details.

Bottom line, cell phone users may want to store their phones in the glove compartment of their car while shopping, but even that may not prevent mall owners from purchasing data from miners which latch onto the signals and follow them.  If it comes down to leaving the phone entirely at home, then what is the purpose of having one at all?

Author Bruce Schneier published a book last autumn expressing concern about "the Internet of Things" in which computerized appliances and vehicles are able to communicate on-line:

Quote
Forget data theft: cutting-edge digital attackers can now literally crash your car, pacemaker, and home security system, as well as everyone else's.

Quote
Putting a computer in everything turns the whole world into a computer security threat...

Quote
In a roboticized world, hacks would not just affect your data but could endanger your property, your life and even national security.

Quote
Even if the benefits are tiny, they create a certain market logic; at some point not long from now, devices that don’t connect to the internet will be rarer than ones that do.

Russia will be sending a weapons-trained robot up to the ISS on August 22, according the the U.K. Mailonline.  It will be charged with the responsibilities of:

Steering
Navigating
Using power tools
Holding intelligent conversations with crew members

Wonder how the human members of the ISS crew will feel about it?  Will they sleep with one eye open at all times?

Meet Fedor, the weaponized robot and newest member of the Russian space crew.

If the mission isn't a military one, wonder why they sent a weaponized AI droid?  Yeah, the human astronauts better be taking turns at guard duty while others sleep.
