Chelsea Manning: The #Dystopia We Signed Up For

The New York Times

In 2010, the #iPhone was only three years old, and many people still didn’t see #smartphones as the indispensable digital appendages they are today. Seven years later, virtually everything we do causes us to bleed digital information, putting us at the mercy of invisible #algorithms that threaten to consume our freedom.

Chelsea Manning Information leakage can seem innocuous in some respects. After all, why worry when we have nothing to hide?

The real power of mass data collection lies in the hand-tailored #algorithms capable of sifting, sorting and identifying patterns within the data itself. When enough #information is collected over time, governments and corporations can use or abuse those patterns to predict future human behavior. Our data establishes a “pattern of life” from seemingly harmless digital residue like cellphone tower pings, credit card transactions and web browsing histories. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/13/opinion/chelsea-manning-big-data-dystopia.html

It's Asimov's #Psychohistory coming true.

In Asimov's #scifi classics from the 1950's - the #Foundation series - it was proposed that:-

...while one cannot foresee the actions of a particular individual, the laws of #statistics as applied to large groups of people could predict the general flow of future events. #Asimov used the analogy of a gas: an observer has great difficulty in predicting the motion of a single molecule in a gas, but can predict the mass action of the gas to a high level of accuracy. Asimov applied this concept to the population of his fictional Galactic Empire, which numbered a quintillion.

First edition dust-jacket of Foundation [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychohistory_%28fictional%29]

While here on Earth we have a much smaller #population - the advent of computers and the Internet has made a form of Psychohistory possible. Where Harry Seldon (the character responsible for the creation of Psychohistory) needed quintillions of people to be able to gather enough information to process and predict - we now gather incalculable amounts of information from relatively fewer people and crunch this data in massive computers.

Manning's "pattern of life" and Asimov's concept of mathematical sociology have met...
