All Your Thoughts Belong to Us

The Article

We are in a weird world.  If your sister submitted your DNA, police can now use it to look for breaks in cold cases, but if that was not creepy enough, researchers now can analyze your public social media to predict what you are going to say next! Yep, this will only get worse when AI is added to the mix, but it appears for now that is not happening.  This compounded as we give more and more of our data to social media platforms…including our Netflix watch list?!?!  Oh well, we should get out of a the house a little more.  GetShipped will let your friends hook you up with a date should you need one!  This and Tech lobbying a record amount, price hikes in the electric car market, and more.  The articles for tonight are linked below.
