Ruha Benjamin on Race After Technology

Along with my recent theme of #Crime and feckless #Punishment methods we use in the #USA, this episode of #FAIR's radio show #CounterSpin brought together #Technology, #AI algorithms and the erroneous application of #Justice for percieved crimes and deviations from rules. Late in the show (c. 20 minutes) Ruha states and exemplar exposing the #Racism inherent in the design of #Information #Systems used to "fight crime".

Ben Goertzel on benevolent robots

Well, I had an unexpected #Laugh this morning playing this #Podcast. The guest, Ben Goertzel, said something a bit after the 5:00 minute mark that was a #SickBurn on #Trump wile describing the limitations of Sophia his robot. It was so small and seemed to not be in as a laugh line, but I laughed so hard.

It's such a wierd show in the second half talking about #AI and the future. Not too sure if the #Utopia he sees comming is going to happen for any of the non rich people of Earth.

We obviously have much more to talk about than just this one thread.
Your specific examples all have merits. I don't know if I can make valid counterclaims that you couldn't make valid counterclaims to, so maybe I'll leave this thread here as it is. An example of intractable counterclaims would be on the topic of restrictive laws. I know some laws are written with wild leeway for the law enforcement authorities (eg. malfunctioning automobile taillight), and I know that they do this for a reason; to detain people without probable cause that would hold up in court whereas the timely circumstantial evidence appears to convict the person of interest. The tail-light stop is nearly never used by authorities, and at times I see them driving with a tail-light out, but if a person driving (in a law-abiding way), inside a matching car that was identified in an armed robbery, with the same number of occupants, the nearby police would make a stop claiming the tail-light was out even if it was functioning (can't prove it wasn't for a moment when he looked). If the routine check on the occupan... show more
@Michael Rupp coincidentally I have found a great source I can now refer to (feel free to comment on that thread), rather than spend hours in threads trying to word the arguments myself. I feel like I've made my main points here and don't want to go much deeper in this thread either, but for you as well as other readers, let me try to use my newly found source:
I’m not unwilling to have my mind changed

I’ve never been convinced that Anarchism was a valid approach to life in general due to the state of human nature.
Anarchist FAQ: What about "human nature"? -- this should address that point. If you're genuinely open-minded here, give it a read, it won't be a wasted time 😀
