Surveillance Capitalism, Predictive Analysis, and You (1)

Our smartphones listen to our conversations even when they’re not on. GPS tracks us even when we know where we’re going. Our credit cards track all of our purchases. The cameras in our computers watch us. Maybe the camera in our smart TVs watch us too. We go through life sending out little electronic messages revealing everything we say, everywhere we go, everything we buy, and everyone we talk to. Artificial intelligence claims it can predict our actions and even our thoughts before we have them. It claims it can influence what we do and even how we vote. Is this the world of interconnectedness we dreamed of 25 years ago at the dawn of the Internet age? How can we control it instead of having it predict our moves and nudging us?
