@killyourfm Why do the algorithms control us? Shouldn't we control the algorithms?

@xpil @killyourfm Only to the same extent that the Universe is the Earth. (Our knowledge of DNA is about as finished as our knowledge of our ancient history.)

@killyourfm

Even scarier - the algorithms in our brains we've yet to reverse engineer.

@killyourfm you're not controlled. But what you are exposed to is a majority not of what you wish.

@killyourfm I'd just like to interject for a moment.. :rms:

What you're referring to as "algorithms" are really machine learning agents, or as I've recently taken to call them "Big Tech's glorified AIs".

No one *programmed* them, they have been *trained* to cater to your deepest and worst instincts. Just like you train your dog to sit.

That difference doesn't make you less vulnerable, but I think it's an important one to make. Especially since dogs do not always behave.
