    In that case, you seem to be both aware of the issues and keen to avoid them, which is great. However as Cambridge analytica demonstrate, others are not so fastidious. I assume that they were just...

    That would be interesting. However, I really don't think either a layman or a specialist would have the faintest clue as to what 'digital DNA' meant. I guess that a non specialist might think they...

    I assume you saw my opinion in the other thread. Iím much happier to see benign applications, but I agree itís the same tech and those who are not paying are merely product. I rather suspect itís...

    I suspect you are confusing artificial selves with artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence is simply any task that would require intelligence if done by a human.
