Artificial Intelligence is all around us today. It is in our phones, computers and even in handy little assistant pods which can help you around the house. But what if they’re watching you for the Government?
It was recently revealed that the Chinese Government has an A.I. working for them. The A.I. gathers information about individuals in the country and rates their value to the society in which they live. The A.I. gets its information from a number of sources which include: Social Media, Doctors Records, Police records, other A.I.s which share information for a price. And more.
How the rating system works is unknown, but we can imagine that it rates you on productivity, health and intelligence.
And if you think you’re safe because you live in another country, you’d be deadly wrong. Just because there is only one nation going public on this, doesn’t mean there aren’t a number of others doing the same thing in secret.
The question is no longer, if the government does this, but, what are they going to do with the information?
I theorise that because of the rise in population, and a lack of resources, among other factors, that the governments which are using this technology will use the information to alleviate the growing problem. Now I’m not saying that they will go door to door in some Nazi styled purging spree, I think rather, they will stop medical treatments of some patients who are less valuable or allow criminals to kill each other.
If you’re worried about this, which you definitely should be, my suggestion to you is to become in-disposable to the society in which you live.
