PBS Frontline: “In The Age of AI” Provides a Stark Look of How Tech Companies Have Misused Public Trust and Continue to Do So

This article was originally published by B.N. Frank at Activist Post. 

You won’t see cell phones or personal computers much in movies or TV shows until the late 1990s because most people didn’t own them.  Of course, most people didn’t need them either.  If you couldn’t afford a “home phone” – payphones usually weren’t hard to find.  Anyone who needed to be “on-call” – like doctors – wore pagers.

People who grew up without new technology know firsthand that it has made the world better in some ways.  We also know that it has made it worse in others.  People who never knew the world without new technology have been conditioned to believe that all of it is necessary as well as beneficial.  Unfortunately, that’s not the case.  5G is very dangerous (see 1234, 56, 7, 8).  Artificial Intelligence (AI) is associated with many risks as well.

There will always be people who want more technology regardless of the human and environmental consequences.  Those kinds of people are not going to like Frontline’s “In the Age of AI”.

FRONTLINE investigates the promise and perils of artificial intelligence, from fears about work and privacy to rivalry between the U.S. and China. The documentary traces a new industrial revolution that will reshape and disrupt our lives, our jobs and our world, and allow the emergence of the surveillance society.
