Terrorism and Social Media: Is Big Tech Doing Enough? Efforts by YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter to Remove Terrorist Content Using Artificial Intelligence (AI), White Supremacist Propaganda and Hate:
No doubt, each of us has come in contact with Artificial Intelligence (AI) - whether it is by shopping Online and seeing ´´suggested for you´´ products, or ads popping up in your Facebook feed, or at the bank when we are making a check deposit at the ATM. Other industries, ranging from health to fitness - to media - to dating apps - to finance have all adopted AI in some capacity to optimize and automate their processes.Artificial intelligence is a branch of computer science that aims to create in intelligent machines. It has become an essential part of the technology industry.Research associated with artificial intelligence is highly technical and specialized. The core problems of artificial intelligence include programming computers for certain traits such as:KnowledgeReasoningProblem solvingPerceptionLearningPlanning, and the ability to manipulate and move objectsKnowledge engineering is a core part of AI research. Machines can often act, and react like humans only if they have abundant information relating to the world. Artificial intelligence must have access to objects, categories, properties, and relations between all of them to implement knowledge engineering. Initiating common sense, reasoning, and problem-solving power in machines is a difficult and tedious approach.Machine learning is another core part of AI. Learning without any kind of supervision requires an ability to identify patterns in streams of inputs, whereas learning with adequate supervision involves classification and numerical regressions. Classification determines the category an object belongs to, and regression deals with obtaining a set of numerical input or output examples, thereby discovering functions enabling the generation of suitable outputs from respective inputs.Mathematical analysis of machine learning algorithms, and their performance is a well-defined branch of theoretical com 1.

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The People Vs Tech by Jamie Bartlett, read by Sandro Monetti. The Internet was meant to set us free. Tech has radically changed the way we live our lives. But have we unwittingly handed too much away to shadowy powers behind a wall of code, all manipulated by a handful of Silicon Valley utopians, ad men, and venture capitalists? And, in light of recent data breach scandals around companies like Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, what does that mean for democracy, our delicately balanced system of government that was created long before big data, total information and artificial intelligence? In this urgent polemic, Jamie Bartlett argues that through our unquestioning embrace of big tech, the building blocks of democracy are slowly being removed. The middle class is being eroded, sovereign authority and civil society are weakened and we citizens are losing our critical faculties, maybe even our free will. The People Vs Tech is an enthralling account of how our fragile political system is being threatened by the digital revolution. Bartlett explains that by upholding six key pillars of democracy, we can save it before it is too late. We need to become active citizens; uphold a shared democratic culture; protect free elections; promote equality; safeguard competitive and civic freedoms; and trust in a sovereign authority. This essential audiobook shows that the stakes couldn’t be higher and that, unless we radically alter our course, democracy will join feudalism, supreme monarchies and communism as just another political experiment that quietly disappeared. 1.
