AI Doesn't Threaten Humanity. Its Owners Do


Joseph Jones in Scientific American opines that the true threat to humanity isn't AI itself, but rather its owners who exploit AI to undermine privacy and democracy. He outlines the unethical use of technology for surveillance and manipulation, discussing topics from Incognito mode's false privacy to corporate data harvesting, and stressing the need for human principles to guide tech advances.

  • Google agreed to destroy data collected in 'Incognito' mode.
  • Insurers use sleep data to decide on coverage.
  • Period tracker apps share sensitive data with third parties.
  • AI exploits vulnerabilities for private gains, not public good.
  • Tech companies' data practices harm democracy and personal freedom.
