The World Economic Forum prepares the ground once again, now advocating merging human and artificial intelligence systems to censor “hate speech” and “misinformation” online before it’s even allowed to be posted.
A report published on the WEF’s official website warns ominously of the danger of the “dark world of online harm”. But the organization, run by Klaus Schwab, has a solution.
They want to merge the “best” aspects of human censorship and AI machine learning algorithms to ensure that people’s feelings are not hurt and that views opposing the regime are blacklisted.
“By uniquely combining the power of innovative technology, off-platform intelligence gathering, and the ability of subject matter experts who understand how threat actors operate, scalable detection of online abuse can reach near-perfect accuracy,” the article states.
After indulging in a bunch of gibberish, the article concludes by proposing “a new framework: instead of relying on AI to detect at scale and humans to examine edge cases, an intelligence-based approach is vital.”
“By bringing human-curated, multi-lingual, off-platform intelligence to learning sets, AI will then be able to detect nuanced, new abuses at scale before they reach mainstream platforms. Complementing this smarter automated detection with human expertise for examining outliers and identifying false positives and negatives, and then feeding these findings back into training sets will allow us to create AI with human intelligence embedded,” the article chatters.
A final blow to Freedom of speech?
In other words, your free speech will likely be censored before you can even post it on social networking sites. Some call it “proactive censorship.”
Or as the WEF puts it: “Trust and security teams can stop threats growing online before they reach users.”
No doubt central to this “misinformation” will be the WEF’s own strong denunciation, given that the organization is notorious for blocking its critics on Twitter.
