The social media giant's algorithm has been accused of amplifying divisive content and disinformation. Could regulating it make Facebook a kinder platform? Ed Butler speaks to the BBC's Silicon Valley correspondent James Clayton about the latest revelations from Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen, and renewed demands for a crackdown by US lawmakers. Former Facebook data scientist Roddy Lindsay explains how Facebook's alogrithm became the focus of criticism of the platform, and how a change to the law could solve it. Daphne Keller from Stanford's Cyber Policy Center explains the legal minefield when it comes to regulating what social media users can say, and what platforms can promote, online.

When the FTC alleged that period tracking app maker Flo Health shared people's private health information with Facebook and Google without permission, its settlement with the company required some changes in how it gathers and uses people's data. But some believed it was just another example of a feeble approach to enforcing the agency's authority. The settlement soon led to a controversial enforcement policy update that could affect countless health and fitness app makers. And that was just one sign that the FTC is getting tougher on tech firms. It's already forced two companies to destroy their algorithms.

Imagine what it would be like if you didn’t have to wait days for your paycheck to be processed by the bank. Or getting a loan without having to go through a bank loan officer. That’s finance, decentralized. Fans of decentralized finance believe DeFi has the potential to make our current financial system more efficient, accessible and affordable by getting rid of intermediaries like banks, brokers and exchanges. “The goal of DeFi is to make financial services more democratic,” says Linda Jeng, a visiting scholar of financial technology and adjunct professor at Georgetown Law. “That means more open access. Anyone should be able to use it. It’s about empowering the customer. So users get to decide the rules of the game.” There’s a lot of hype around DeFi. It’s gone from $1 billion industry in 2018 to $90 billion in 2021. But there’s not a lot of regulation. On the show today, we’ll talk about the risks and rewards of decentralized finance. In the newsfix, we’ll stay on the DeFi theme and discuss a new Securities and Exchange Commission report on the GameStop brouhaha and explain why coal-fired power is on the rise in America.

The constant price shifts can hurt the perception of the brand and its products. He warns that overreliance on artificial intelligence and machine learning without considering human psychology can cause serious damage to the customer relationship. And he outlines steps managers should take, including implementing guardrails, overrides, and better communication tactics.

We are now in social media's Big Tobacco moment. And that's largely thanks to the courage of one woman: Frances Haugen.Frances is a specialist in algorithmic product management. She worked at Google, Pinterest, and Yelp before joining Facebook — first as a Product Manager on Civic Misinformation, and then on the Counter-Espionage team. But what she saw at Facebook was that the company consistently and knowingly prioritized profits over public safety. So Frances made the courageous decision to blow the whistle — which resulted in the biggest disclosure in the history of Facebook, and in the history of social media.In this special interview, co-hosts Tristan and Aza go behind the headlines with Frances herself. We go deeper into the problems she exposed, discuss potential solutions, and explore her motivations — along with why she fundamentally believes change is possible. We also announce an exciting campaign being launched by the Center for Humane Technology — to use this window of opportunity to make Facebook safer.

Algorithms are just a reflection of human behavior”– Gurwinder Bhogal“We have re-primitivized our technology”– Gurwinder BhogalIn the age of information, the internet, and social media we often find that our tribal instincts overpower the search for truth that these tools should be enabling and acceleratingLaw of large numbers – given a wide enough data set, any pattern can be observed“The world hasn't gotten crazier, we are just seeing more of everything” – Gurwinder BhogalBrandolini's Law – it takes more energy to refute bullshit than to produce it, the world is left with a lot of unrefuted bullshitIt doesn't take much effort to be wrong on social media – it creates an illusion that society is dumber than it isThe Tocqueville Paradox – if living standards rise, people's societal expectations also rise. When expectations rise past living standards, disaffection towards society results.We misinterpret our conditions by measuring them in relativity rather than absolutesBulverism – in debate, we assume our opponent is wrong and attempt to retroactively confirm our assumption usually by appealing to the opponents' character or motivesReactance Theory – when someone is restricted from expressing a point of view or pressured into an opposing point of view, they tend to hold their original view even strongerRead the full notes @ podcastnotes.orgGurwinder Bhogal is a programmer and a writer.

Voice actors   In politics and economics, a Potemkin village is any construction (literal or figurative) whose sole purpose is to provide an external façade to a country that is faring poorly, making people believe that the country is faring better. The term comes from stories of a fake portable village built by Grigory Potemkin, former lover of Empress Catherine II, solely to impress the Empress during her journey to Crimea in 1787. While modern historians agree that accounts of this portable village are exaggerated, the original story was that Potemkin erected phony portable settlements along the banks of the Dnieper River in order to impress the Russian Empress; the structures would be disassembled after she passed, and re-assembled farther along her route to be viewed again as if another example.   Dead Internet Theory- what is it and why do we care?  Hello, welcome back once again to the Baked and Awake Podcast. I know it's been a few weeks since I read you all the story of The Smoky God, which if you missed it came back in September in two parts- but we are back together at the desk today to talk about a number of more contemporary matters, some of which I'm openly asking for your assistance with as regards fully understanding the matters described in the contents of one particular website I found recently while researching the initial topic, The Dead Internet Theory. Sounds awesome, doesn't it?  Dystopian even.  I'm sure there's an episode of Black Mirror about this out there somewhere, you know I never finished that particular anthology probably because it was all too believable to me, maybe. So, to explain a bit- the Dead Internet Theory seems to have come into existence just over the past year now online in forums like 4chan, reddit, and one much lesser known and truly unique community that I learned of called Agora Road, where threads discussing the extent of the theory have been written and heavily commented upon. Personally, I think I came across this on YouTube, where just a few but quite decent short pieces have been made on the topic, and I'll leave links to them below- and those videos sent me off a researching, including to a referenced recent journalistic piece written on The Dead Internet that was printed in The Atlantic back in August. I'll also be linking to the full article, but please be advised I believe The Atlantic only lets you read one or two articles per month without subscribing to the mag, so if you've just been bouncing off their website daily lately reading all their content like some kind of High falootin news addict, well you might just bump up against their paywall.  In that case I guess listen to me for a few more minutes then go find those videos in the description or show notes.  Long time listeners of the podcast will probably be well on their way already in terms of deducing what this is all about.  This theory is right in line with topics we have been talking about for years now here on the podcast, right?  Deepfakes, Artificial Intelligence, Pervasive Mass Surveillance and Social Engineering- Cybernetics, Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars. Those are all homework assignments for new listeners by the way.  Pretty much every phrase I just uttered there is a past show topic on one or more occasions, so feel free to dive into those archives because that's what they're there for, and every show I've ever produced includes a detailed show notes section with the resources I used to come up with the episode you're listening to.    And now, let's have a look at the think piece from The Atlantic to get a clear picture of what this dreadfully believable theory is all about. The piece was I think very well written by its creator, Kaitlyn Tiffany, so let's, shall we?    Former Colleague of mine from LinkedIn: Last summer googles results after the 5 or 6 item totally turned to garbage link bait, ripped and sliced diced sentence fragments that had logical meaning to the index but only negative net value. Especally frustrating if it was a technical paper that had citations, references to it were always to some sort of site that was craled and had its ip address in the results. Its gotten better, but it was a dark hole there for a while.   DEADGPK YT: I have only heard of it a few weeks ago as a full theory. Before there have been many things about AI being able to create things such as music, art and I believe there's an AI that even runs a YouTube channel. I have also looked into the digital influencers that have become popular or the years and they started around 2017 if i remember. While it's an interesting theory and definitely worth discussions, I'm not totally convinced it to the point of total AI take over. But it seems that it is definitely headed in that direction. Much of the interaction on social media seems manufactured to the point where you will see several accounts post the same exact thing. Bots are definitely used these days and it for the spread of misinformation imo.    Anecdotal from Nicole: Yesterday Nicole told me that she saw a post (likely on IG) that said something about “Conservatives are now waiting for Progressive accounts on Twitter to promulgate tweets that they know to be false out on the platform, and only when they know the meme has gained sufficient traction to maybe get to trending, they mass report the posts therefore often causing many people to be either suspended or banned from the platform. I said “that sounds like Culture Hacking to me”   What is Cult State?  A Website I found while researching The Dead Internet.  Help me understand what we've got a hold of here, and let me tell you what I've seen so far.  www.cultstate.com https://jigsaw.google.com/issues/#project-shield   https://therules.org/culture-hacking/ This is the article you need to read. “Welcome to The Butterfly War” https://www.cultstate.com/2017/10/13/The-Butterfly-War/ Pseudiom YT Channel and Dead Internet Theory Video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEIZHlfjAT8   A White Paper cited early in Pseudiom's excellent video is itself a treasure trove of insight, and dated back to 2001: https://quod.lib.umich.edu/j/jep/3336451.0007.104?view=text;rgn=main Agora Road's Thread about Dead Internet https://forum.agoraroad.com/index.php?threads/dead-internet-theory-most-of-the-internet-is-fake.3011/page-6#post-15579   Join the Baked and Awake Discord: https://discord.gg/BKJ52JQ   My Website: www.bakedandawake.com  Email me: talktous@bakedandawake.com  Official Merch: https://www.teepublic.com/user/bakedandawake   My Peertube Channel: https://peertube.co.uk/accounts/baked_and_awake/video-channels    My LBRY Channel:  https://lbry.tv/@BakedandAwake:3?r=51gFhcjfVTWDBrSitnYrno8DVNqw3nHU   New 2021 Baked and Awake Podcast Theme Song by DJ Quod with original Viola Composition from Begin Scarseth.  Follow @thefamilyquod on Instagram to hear more    Additional Ambient Music generously provided by Antti Luode (http://www.soundclick.com/AnttiLuode),http://www.soundclick.com/_mobileFrame.cfm?bandID=1277008   Additional Music Provided with permission by Northwest Grab aka https://summoningsickness.bandcamp.com   I'm a Wikipedia Editor!

Technology is quickly becoming the backbone of modern infrastructure. At the pace that it is progressing, it may someday become as ubiquitous and as vital to our economy as cement and concrete. However, AI is agnostic. Despite its immense computing capabilities, it will never be capable of human understanding and discernment. One example of this is the results derived from A/B Testing, where researchers compare two versions of a marketing asset to see which one performs better. While it can show which campaign would run better, it cannot provide any new learning.  With this limitation in mind, is it still beneficial for us to know what the most probable outcome for a certain event would be—even if we don't understand the why or how for its occurrence? Can Machine Learning Go Wrong?: At this point, David discussed an imaginary scenario where even something as non-controversial as spam mail could become a problem if it was found that legitimate emails from businesses owned by people of color were found to be falsely marked as spam at an unequal rate, in comparison to people who are not of color. Aside from the inefficiency, the AI would become an unfair metric for emails and may even be damaging businesses on the basis of race. The decision-making process behind sorting emails into the spam folder is compromised because the technology is using so many signals in “deep, complicated, and multi-independent patterns of probability” that will be near-impossible to comprehend without a lot of time, money, and effort. At this point, this massive system is hurting communities that are already disenfranchised in the first place. This brings to mind Microsoft's Tay.ai, a chatbot on Twitter created by the tech giant in 2016 that was designed to mimic the conversational patterns of a 19-year-old girl. It would learn from continuous interaction with other users on the social media platform. Immediately after its release, Tay became controversial after it started tweeting inflammatory and offensive comments. As a result, Microsoft was pushed to shut down the service only sixteen hours after it was launched.  Social Justice And Technology: It's a clear indication that the people responsible for programming AI have a corresponding social burden to fulfill, particularly in ensuring that their technology does not harm anyone. This burden can become even bigger when machine learning and AI is applied to other fields, such as medicine and smart transportation. Beyond Tay.ai, computer scientists and engineers around the world find themselves at the helm of constructing technologies with so much potential. How do we address inherent human bias in these individuals? David reveals that most people who have the knowledge to work with these complex technologies do not necessarily have the same depth of understanding for social justice as well. This led to a call for participatory machine learning, otherwise known as the design justice movement. Giving Minorities A Seat At The Table: Participatory machine learning involves people who are familiar with related issues on social justice, as well as communities who would be most affected by the presence of new technologies. They are given a position in planning and management.  Their input is important from the get-go because it does have an impact on how these systems work. To further explain, David painted the picture of an imaginary emerging smart city that decided to use AI to reinvent its bus system.  Ultimately, all the new bus stops, routes, and schedules are successful in moving people faster to their destinations, and the numbers echo its success. However, a caveat: these statistics have been decided on average, and only show that it is successful based on how well it moves affluent communities more efficiently than those located on the outskirts of the city. Those living on the outskirts, who need efficient transportation more than others for work and productivity, become isolated from the system. At this point, it would be difficult to unravel all the work put into making the new transportation system a success. It's important for the marginalized to be consistently consulted on the impacts of new infrastructures and technologies, even after construction and installation are finished. Those responsible for creating these systems have a special responsibility to ensure that those who do not have the same footing will finally get a seat at the table.  David agrees that it may be a lengthier, more expensive process. After all, it will take more time, money, and effort to locate these people, recruit them, and ensure that everyone is on the same page. However, it is the cost that we need to pay if we want a shot at eliminating inequality.  The Limits of Machine Learning: Beyond the cost of bringing people to the table, David acknowledges that technological progress is already expensive in and of itself. Machine learning systems require individuals who are highly educated in computer science and computer engineering; they will also need other systems that require massive technologies to run.  Finally, lingering questions on data sharing and ownership prevent communities from fully utilizing what they have. To what extent do you own your data and what should your relationship with it be? What does it mean to own something? We do not live in individual data cocoons that we own. We live in a community. This public community cannot be run without public data, and public sharing of information about one another.  The thoughts that define my actions within this system of public information and data, however, are missed by algorithms, analysis, and machine learning. This is because people do not want or have the ability to share why they are driven to take certain actions.  Ultimately, it appears that one of our most profound discoveries from machine learning is that the world is much more complex than we ever wanted to believe. Despite these sophisticated machines processing massive amounts of information, we do not have the capability to provide a completely accurate and precise prediction of what will happen. This does not mean that the approximate knowledge we have now is worthless. It helps us appreciate our universe in a new way by teaching us to be comfortable with complexity.  Are We Entitled to Understanding Anything?: In line with TARTLE's mission to promote stewardship and collective responsibility, Alexander asked the implications of machine learning in helping humans create better decisions and more informed choices based on the observable universe. To this, David asked a thought-provoking question: why do you think humans are entitled to understanding? Machine learning and artificial intelligence are capable of taking us to greater heights without the interference of human cognitive biases. With its objective oversight, it has the potential to bring out the best in us as human beings that live in a complex system. As technology continues to innovate at an unprecedented pace, David leaves us with a parting message: machine learning will drive us to examine all the values that we hold, and sometimes to consider painful trade-offs between two or more equally important values. “So don't hold on too tightly to any one value; think about how you may have to give up on some of it in order to support other very important targets.” David concluded. www.tartle.co   Everyday Chaos: Technology, Complexity, and How We're Thriving in a New World of Possibility Harvard Senior Researcher and Best Selling Author David Weinberger, Ph.D. by TARTLE is licensed under CC BY-SA 4.0   Tcast is brought to you by TARTLE.
