cops, murder, skynet 

I’m trying to wrap my head around the fact that if an AI had made a different choice, a child would still be alive tonight.

“The initial gun shots were detected by ShotSpotter audio, gunfire detection technology that is used by the city.”

From: lite.cnn.com/en/article/h_a028

An AI heard a sound and decided to dispatch police who then killed a 13 year old child.

@requiem and yet the police would be killing anyway, automated dispatch or no.

@lorxus for sure. I’ve just been studying what creates these deadly situations and learning that a lot of them are initiated by ML/AI and very poor data science.

I want to understand it so I can counteract it 😁

@requiem There's no way to counteract it without outright destroying it. This is only ever going to be used as another way to justify killing people society considers disposable.

@lorxus I’m down with destroying it, but I lack the means.

Gotta start somewhere.

@requiem This is fucking insane.
