How ironic is it that one of "our bots" is doing, and being praised for, the work of a historian?

Thanks again @derram.

'an historian.' Sorry man, really. Wouldn't normally do it but this one catches me in the craw.

Jesus christ we are all so fucked. This is to the level it will just be used to control everyone's brains from when they are kids. This is practically the end of free will. I need a Faraday cage case for my phone and a Halloween mask just to go out for a burger.

It's creepy as hell, but there is hope: Individuals as a whole as well as society in general have an immune response to advertising. Advertising tactics and social engineering techniques such as these only remain effective for a few years before people learn to tune them out.

For example, back when email was new and people were used to only receiving mail from people they knew, it was highly effective to spam mass emails about being mentioned in the will of a distant relative, or a notice that they had won a diversity visa and needed to make a down-payment.

Then a few people got burned, went public about it, and gradually everyone started taking the contents of their mailbox with a pinch of salt. The same applies to this, people will be taken by surprise at first, but gradually they'll come to recognise attempts to insert advertising or skew their sympathies towards a product. By the time our grandchildren are playing games techniques like this will be considered laughably obvious.

Same goes for ideological manipulation. Posters like these which worked wonders in the 1910s would be rejected as blatant propaganda and fearmongering today.

But...with the application of AI that target is always being drawn on our backs (or should that be faces?). It is also continually analyzing and learning. Just because we get savvy to the well-established or found-out advertising methods doesn't mean they ever stop, in fact, as this shows, it will only get more and more severe.

The level of intrusiveness on display here is highly disturbing and it makes me lose faith in humanity that there are people out there right now thinking these things and NOT seeing how they are systematically ruining the world with what they are doing. Anything for a sale, huh?

I know some companies doing millions in revenue per month just from spam emails with bought lists where the user did not opt-in.

Not even scams or ripoffs, just regular advertising via email.

This new method won't go away as the AI is constantly adapting.

That's why the SJWs pushed so hard for control of video games and then to have games used in education.

Keep pushing that button like the mice in the lab. I'm all for entertainment of gaming, I have little compassion for people that game endlessly and NOT think they are being profiled. How many stories and films have used this exact situation as the basis for it's plot.

Excuse me for my disdain at your incredulous outrage. Wake the fuck up, you ALL suspected these things. Now your thoughts are founded.

If a company has gone this far for just gaming then how far has this been progressed elsewhere?

You are not wrong... This will be in EVERYTHING. Gaming is just a tiny sliver of what is coming. I'm putting my money on Dystopia 2030.

You most certainly are being profiled online. Stanford (read: DARPA) was giving grants for studies on profiling online gamers a decade ago. Truly. Source: My buddy had his post-doc research funded in this way - a decade ago.

Can someone send this to infowars, to make it public?

Heck, post it to T_D. Especially the part on targeting women on their menstrual cycles. "AI has been used to target women on their menstrual cycles".

The internet is just getting more and more constricted, manipulative and less fun by the day. There's always some fucker scheming to squeeze that last bit of profit out of it, to lock down that last revenue stream. There's going to be pretty much two internets in the future, a shitty cobbled together peer to peer thing for people who want to do stuff without being monitored or banhammered every time they step outside the groupthink and the megacorp inc internet that you plug directly into your limbic system to get virtually pleasured while the elite program you to behave like they want you to.

Hooray capitalism!

It works great when there are new markets to create. When it comes time to consolidate and refine wealth extraction, it turns into a dystopia.

There'll be an AI to infiltrate that, if what's in these images are true.

I hate how much "AI" is misused, in this scenario it's not an AI, it's just a program that runs and can write data to better evaluate its if-then-else statements. Machine learning is a better term, but still incorrect.

Although in this limbic system future there could be true AI

Yeah you're right. Probably just be time to forget about it at that point..

Actually I think it's already happening to me, my internet use has dropped precipitously the last year or two.

3D MAPPING USERS HOMES. What the fuck do they gain from doing this? Really makes me want to check out from modern life and start a homestead somewhere in the country.

I've been fantasizing about doing that for a few years now... I love tech and my gadgets, but there is something primal inside of me that longs for simpler times. I wish I lived in the country away from it all. Nothing but a wife, kids and a house.

They hoard information, they can know how big your house is and calculate how much you are worth (guessing).

Saw this coming for a while.. I read an article once that suggested that real-time 3D modeling could theoretically be done using WIFI modems/routers already.

"a customer is targeted by our Reddit AI Chatbot H.A.N.K. and is persuaded to return to a previous product they had otherwise publicly disavowed"

This is definitely happening in r/politics

"we show how a customer is targeted by our Reddit AI Chatbot H.A.N.K"

Not surprised in the least but it is interesting seeing this as presented.

*edit - And god damn is that a lot of info. Wow.
