It’s undoubtedly all the buzz recently. I don 3. *it’s an attack on an open internet* - why do people put stuff on the internet? For the money, recently. But if you look at the longer timeframe, the primary reason was for others to check it. I applaud people who have web pages without any analytics. I use one to see if anyone reads something I write. When someone enters, it validates me and makes me happy. This is the idea of the open internet - anyone can create something for others. But what will happen when the visitors disappear? We already have a few closed silos (Facebook, Twitter, and so on), so fewer people surf the wider web. And when all the answers will show up in a single place? Who will continue to create when all that there exist is void? 4. *who takes responsibility?* - a machine model is not a person (we’re not in [GitS](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost_in_the_Shell) yet), but that won’t stop it from hurting humans. What if it provides wrong information? What if (when?) people start losing jobs due to it? If the pace of innovation continues, the social changes ML will bring will be incomparable to anything we’ve seen. (more in #7) 5. *what are the limits?* - there were attempts to use ML to detect illnesses like cancer. We don’t do this on a broader scale as it provided too many false positives, and the cons were unacceptable. Will we do a similar thing again? Will anyone say, “stop, this is going too far”? Who would even be able to do that? Scientists are out of the equation now (again, #7), and governments still don’t know what is [going on](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZMwKPmsbWE).
