Exemplary response by here as a member of an AI ethics board. It’s fast, to the point, with statements that are clear enough that he is accountable for saying something of substance 👏

the threat is broader and deeper than face rec imo. any tech which can connect online/offline without consent is a serious problem. all distanced-biometrics fall into this category. the online/offline interface is where future privacy scandals will come from

I wrote an opus on the straw, from the days when straws were literal straws through the Temperance/soda fountain era to McDonald's suburbia to vulture capitalism and the infinite abyss of consumer options. Also, this ad.
