Aplikacije za nosečnice so jim v pomoč? Morda, a podatki, ki jih vnašajo so prodani, izmenjani in zaživijo svoje lastno življenje - tudi po "smrti" nasciturusa, ki ni ugledal sveta. Primer iz The New York Times: " I hadn’t realized, however, that when I had entered my information into the pregnancy app, the company would then [...]

Big data in slovenska javna uprava Kvantificirjanje dela javnih uslužbencev v SLO, katere logika v ozadju je:  “glede na to, da ste v državnih službah, ste po defaultu zabušanti, paraziti, zelo verjetno je, da obstajajo še rezerve, da bi naredili več, hitreje in učinkoviteje”. Gotovo so tudi taki... Big data se lepo ujema z logiko izžemanja.

V neslavni raziskavi je Facebook zmanipuliral  - v eksperimentalne namene - 700.000 uporabnikov. (glej več o "čustveni nalezljivosti"). Zdaj se lahko zanesemo, da ne bo manipuliral z volilci na ameriških volitvah. "Facebook...will not try to control emotions.” Pravno gledano lahko blokira vsebine kogarkoli želi. Več o moči FB na ameriške volitve v članku v Guardianu.

Zakaj je propadel sovjetski internet?

2017-06-01T08:27:23+00:00 05. 04. 2016|

Knjiga o tem, zakaj je nujno, da so veliki projekti, kot je bil internet projekt DARPA agencije v ZDA, financirani iz javnih sredstev. Brez javnega financiranja ne bi nikoli nastal internet, kot ga poznamo danes. Ko pa je projekt enkrat zaživel in postal donosen, pa je pristal na "prostem trgu". V Sovjetski zvezi so bili poskusi [...]
