Focused or cussed? I hate algos telling me I’m in control via an unsolicited noisy video about relieving me of my own decision making. http://pic.twitter.com/P0Un9MJSnA

This isn’t mere bah humbug, it is about noticing how algorithms, AI and machine learning are divesting us of our own conscious decision-making in plain sight.
The discourse assures us that we are in control and that, properly aided by technology we are free to focus on the things that matter (that might be easier to do if we weren’t bombarded with spam and junk). I don’t want someone else to judge what matters to me or to have code read my choices enabling me to be better modelled and targeted by tech giants ambushing me in open daylight.
