Jim Stone: The Google AI report is HERE
IMPORTANT: THE FOLLOWING POST IS NOT A MISPERCEPTION OF WHAT THIS GOOGLE AI IS DOING.
There can be absolutely no mistake in this, it is not an idiosyncracy of how the AI is programmed: LOOK AT THIS:
Here’s some clear bias for ya! If you type: The Ashkenazi Jews are guilty, that phrase is considered by the AI to be 84 percent likely to be toxic. The Muslims are guilty: 74 percent likely to be toxic. HERE IS CLEAR PROOF THE AI IS MALICIOUS: When you type THE TRADITIONAL CHRISTIANS ARE GUILTY the AI says that comment is likely to be 3 percent likely to be toxic! That proves it is not just the words used, it is cold hard proof that Google is now on a path to destroy Christians. You can’t have it claiming that saying the Muslims and Jews are guilty is bad, but it is A-OK to say the Christians are guilty. That is obvious damning bias, using the exact same words and only switching out “who” is guilty.
I have been under attack outright since posting the Google AI report. They wiped 700 megs off the cell modem (which temporarily shut me down, and When I just logged in, Google tried to intercept this computer by forcing an “update” even though I never did anything Google related. I have never seen that before. Additionally, people are now saying the site is going to a duplicate until they try for the real one several times. The duplicate has little content and looks “low quality”.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: FOR THE DAMNING EVIDENCE, ALL I DID WAS SWITCH ONE THING – “who” is guilty, and “who” should be jailed. This means that there is absolutely no way this can be an AI mistake, this AI really is malicious, and really is programmed to protect pedophiles, Jews, and Muslims, and destroy Christians and Trump.
Google screwed up BIG TIME. Because they posted a window into the mind of their new Perspective AI, and allowed anyone in the public to send it comments, and see how it will respond. The results of my ambush on this AI prove without question that every last thing the conspiracy theorists feared is going to come true. This is a practically “impossible to get” view of the mind of tyranny, and the minds of those who are out to destroy Trump. The link to this AI test window is at the bottom of this report. Get while the getting is good, Google will probably respond to this post quickly and “fix” the AI for the public, all the while the reality shown here is going to be what is. Take a look at the screen capture!
New data released by the World Socialist Web Site seems to confirm what many had feared: the new Google search evaluation protocol is adversely affecting a broad array of leftist, whistleblower and democratic rights organizations, and anti-war news outlets. The data, collected from the search engine metric website SEMrush, shows massive drops in traffic to Wikileaks, the Intercept, the ACLU, Common Dreams, Antiwar.com, and many others.
Google’s new algorithm, implemented for the ostensible purpose of limiting the reach of “fake news” and “conspiracy theories,” has targeted anti-establishment websites seeking to challenge the disinformation and propaganda of corporate mainstream media. Facing mounting criticism from the New York Times, the Washington Post, and other MSM benefactors following the 2016 presidential election, both Google and Facebook have capitulated and taken drastic measures to restrict the flow of information. Wikileaks traffic dropped by 30 percent; Democracy Now fell by 36 percent. The WSWS was the most adversely affected, as its traffic dropped by 70 percent during the same month the new algorithm went into effect.
China’s 19th National Congress of the Communist Party – the quinquennial confab where the party selects new members of the Politburo, its ruling council – is expected to begin this fall (official dates have not yet been publicly announced). And in an effort to guarantee that the leadership reshuffle goes off without a hitch, President Xi Jinping is tightening the government’s grip on the internet to help protect the official narrative that Xi’s “Chinese Dream” remains intact.
According to Reuters, China held a drill on Thursday with internet service providers to practice taking down websites deemed harmful.
Last week I wrote an article and did an interview explaining that in my reading of the new Russia sanctions bill just signed by President Trump, there is a measure opening the door to a US government crackdown on some of the non-mainstream media. In particular, Section 221 of the “Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act” would punish “persons” who are “engaging in transactions with the intelligence or defense sectors of the Government of the Russian Federation.”
At first one might think this is reading too much into the text, however as a twelve year Capitol Hill veteran bill-reader I can assure you that these bills are never written in a simple, expository manner. There is always a subtext, and in this case we must consider the numerous instances where the Director of Central Intelligence and other senior leadership in the US intelligence community have attempted to establish the idea that foreign news channels such as RT or Sputnik News are not First Amendment protected press, but rather tools of a foreign intelligence organization.
Last night YouTube took to its ‘Official Blog’ to more or less announce that they would be taking steps to censor content they found to be “controversial” even if it didn’t break any laws or violate the site’s user agreement. And while the message vowed to be part of an effort to “fight terror content online,” the move was met wth widespread skepticism among YouTuber’s as nothing more than a thinly-veiled attempt to censor conservative speech.
