The Risky Business Gamble of AI
The worldwide pandemic of Covid-19 has increased the amount of traffic on all of the social networks. With almost everyone at home, they have more time to comment and research and share stories and opinions. This means that these social media content moderators have more and more stories and posts to approve. So will your story or post be approved or disapproved? That all depends more and more on “AI.” These companies are now changing their entire business model to incorporate more intelligent pattern matching into their approval process. What does this mean for the future of their business, when it is a computer that decides on if you can post on their particular social media platform or not.? Since this is not true artificial intelligence but only high order pattern matching programming with some added machine learning, approval will depend on the bias of the programmer toward language and if particular posts and stories will be allowed on these platforms.
