GPs to refer patients without cancer symptoms under PM's new AI strategy


Ha ha ha , the mesmerising theory of big data , algorithm and AI . Welcome to dataism of 21st century . Clearly , Auntie May does not want to take the lesson of Cambridge Analytica-Vote Leave- Face Book seriously. After all, Mark Zuckerberg walked out unscathed after testifying before US Congress . FB share price shot up against all odds . China has now blueprint to use big data to categorise its people into different social classes with the more ‘privileged’ ones with more chance to be successful and rich. People all carry a score according to calculations with big data . Together with facial recognition technology, anybody can be ‘tracked down’ easily within a matter of minutes. Ha ha ha , 21st century Big Brother . Orwell is a prophet !! No doubt , robots/AIs will replace many manual occupations, question is how do we define the word ‘work’ , a question brought along by Michael J Sandell in his article in this week’s NewStatesman,’How to save democracy’.
