WEB Notes: The DoD spent $7.4 billion dollars last year on big data and now this. No one is going to complain. If you follow the first link in this article it takes you to the TSA’s site and explains not only do you have the privilege of moving through a naked body scanner and be felt up by a government agent, you now have the option for a face and retina scan which will quickly set you on your way!

Facebook Rolls Out AI To Detect Suicidal Posts Before They’re Reported

WEB Notes: Did anyone ask for this? What if a friend or co-worker called “first responders” to your aid because they thought you were depressed or had suicidal thoughts. How would that make you feel? Like your privacy was invaded maybe? Hey, we sign ourselves up for this type of thing so I suppose we cannot complain about it. Just know the more we continue to feed these machines, the more they learn and the more invasive things will become.

That is not treating the problem, it is masking it and artificially controlling the person. Not fixing the issue with them. Notice who is behind this, DARPA a solider that always thinks “kill the enemy” and stays focused on it is a good solider. How disturbing it is to see our people manipulated.
