The song remains the same and the ANTI-DEMOCRATIC tunes of technology and of “some people” dwelling in the “tower” are now blatantly discovered.
Tons of recommendation are published to hinder the dystopian tricks and scenarios using and abusing AI … but what EURACTIV is bravely revealing is something that, as consultants, we already noticed from a long while.
Here is the link to the column: https://www.euractiv.com/section/digital/opinion/the-eu-is-funding-dystopian-artificial-intelligence-projects/
Our question at EUE is why after this:
and this: https://ec.europa.eu/newsroom/dae/document.cfm?doc_id=60419
We gotta read stuff like that: https://www.sewaproject.eu/ funded with people’s money and accepted by “assessors” that probably considers natural and fair the use of technology to probe into the mind of people.
So is it probably needed a check of the level and quality of Democratic Culture and also the acknowledgment of the so called “European Way of Life” of all the Assessors working for the European Commission?
If they are green lighting such totalitarian applications of technology is something to be checked ASAP.
So then now what is mandatory is a layer of CONTROL in the upcoming HORIZON EUROPE, where experts such that: https://www.disruptionlab.org/ are able to stress the anti-democratic usage of AI and technology in a proper way and with a scientific methodology and taking in consideration also relevant CASES across the globe they have properly already reported and analysed.
What is paradoxical is that are present and in run technology to analyze the sentiment of people and are not operative technologies ready to track down tons of garbage moving around Europe and dangerously burned against the public health of the European Citizens.
In such trend an immediate CLASS ACTION has to be established to re-balance the purpose of AI and to control the understanding of democratic values and aims of the “assessors”.
