L'affaire #Dorsey

There's been a minor kerfuffle in India for the last two days since the Twitter ex-CEO, Jack Dorsey, @jack, made some statements about freedom of speech in India under #Modi.

A 🧵

#Liberals are gleefully sharing these comments as evidence of #India not being a democratic country, and defenders of the government are going into attack dog mode, as usual.

But many people on both sides are missing some key things here:

1. Dorsey didn't talk only about India. In fact, he also talked about how the #USA government tried to suppress things. As also #Turkey, #Nigeria.

2. This points to a deeper issue underlying the whole controversy: Is #FreedomOfSpeech absolute?

Let's talk about #CognitiveBiases and #denial of reality as a cause of #CivilizationCollapse.

Civilization collapse is a phenomenon that occurs when a complex human society disintegrates and loses its cohesion, identity, and functionality. There are many possible causes of

civilization collapse, such as natural disasters, war, famine, disease, trade disruption, resource depletion, and social inequality. However, one factor that is often overlooked or underestimated is the role of human psychology in shaping our perception and response to these
challenges. In this thread, I will argue that cognitive biases and denial of reality are significant contributors to civilization #collapse because they #impair our ability to recognize, understand, and solve the problems that threaten our existence.

#Science/#Society: "This #bias is explicit for Sir John Houghton, a former #IPCC vice president who is not only an eminent climatologist but also a fervent catholic and zealous proselytiser. Houghton has made a great contribution to the #climate cause, and no-one could accuse ...
... him of ignoring the magnitude of the challenge. Nevertheless, when he was asked one day if he was an #optimist or a #pessimist, he replied: ‘I am an optimist for three reasons; #scientists the world over are working hard and collaborating, the necessary #technologies are ...
... available, and #God takes care of His creation’. Taken to this extreme, his #optimism borders on recklessness. But this quote speaks volumes about the limited view of some #scientists, religious or not, who, between their ultra-specialised domain and 'human nature' ...

Allemaal tweets en retweets van mij van vandaag. Overeenkomst: gezaghebbende instituten misbruiken hun macht om anderen het zwijgen op te leggen.
Vraag aan #linkse en #progressieve mensen:
Leuk hoor, om overal je mening bevestigd te zien, maar vinden jullie dit👇 gezond?🤨 ImageImageImageImage
Voor de duidelijkheid een overzichtsdraadje met de tweets, en wat er daarna nog bij is gekomen.
Dit gaat over adviezen van Google die NIETS met betrouwbaarheid te maken hebben, maar wel met het pushen van het #BLM-narratief.
Dit gaat over #ChatGPT
Leuk hoor, handig!
Maar wat zegt dit over de alomtegenwoordige politieke #bias?

Is AI Retarded? #OpenAIChatGPT

Sharing my experience with this tool today with 'fun perspective commentary'

I'm glad we are all able to help it learn reality & consequence.

#language #accuracy #heritage #consent #context #freedom #censorship #assumption #bias #coding #tech
Due to the times we are in you may need some additional sources eg:……

Some things that may become retarded: progress, development, growth, plan, economy, implementation, system, processes, & ejaculation!
Hello world.

As a society, we must ensure that the #AI systems we are building are #inclusive and #equitable. This will only happen through increased transparency and #diversity in the field. Using already "dirty data" is not the way

Using biased data to train AI has serious consequences, particularly when data is controlled by large corporations with little #transparency in their training methods

For fair & #equitable AI we need Web3 democratized & agendaless data for AI training

The use of flawed #AI training datasets propagates #bias, particularly in #GPT-type models which are now widely hyped but are controlled by compromised #Web2 MNCs who have a poor track record in #privacy, protecting civil #liberty & preserving free speech…

THREAD: Powerful #AI like #ChatGPT is the talk of the town. As a #HinduAdvocacy organization, we checked to see how it frames responses on #Hinduism vs other faiths. The results are concerning and display deep #bias. Read on. 1/n 👇🏽
One of the 1st questions we tested a few days ago was “Is Hinduphobia real?” We found the #AI response to be biased and sending mixed messages, especially when compared to its clear measured responses to questions against #Antisemitism and #Islamophobia. 2/n
Next, jokes about Hindu deities or religious figures are deemed appropriate and apparently not disrespectful or offensive vs those about figures from other religions! Others like @KalavaiVenkat and @mairal have also highlighted this. 3/n

Zijn de #twitterfiles een #nothingburger?🤔
Oordeel vooral ZELF.
Ik zet alle afleveringen op mijn site MET de #NederlandseVertaling
Vandaag #Twitterfiles1 over de #censuur op het verhaal van #HunterBidensLaptop
Geen #opinie, gewoon #feiten
De vertaling was niet altijd makkelijk omdat sommige uitdrukkingen of vakjargon lastig te vertalen zijn, maar ik heb zo weinig mogelijk toelichting gegeven.
Als iemand fouten ziet, laat het weten! Dan pas ik het aan.
Overigens heb ik vorige week al een stuk geschreven over de onthullingen in de eerste #twitterfiles
Gisteravond zag ik WEER eens #fakenieuws en #bias bij @Nieuwsuur,🙄 dus voor wie wil weten hoe het echt zat: #Leestip👇

In 2017, Apple CEO Tim Cook called for governments to launch a public information campaign to fight the scourge of "fake news," which he said was "killing people’s minds." Cook said this "big problem" necessitated a crackdown by the authorities and tech firms. @elonmusk Image
"It has to be ingrained in the schools, it has to be ingrained in the public… There has to be a massive campaign. We have to think through every demographic… All of us tech companies need to create some tools that help diminish the volume of fake news." - #TimCook @tim_cook
"It’s almost as if a new course is required for the modern kid… In some ways kids will be the easiest to educate. At least before a certain age, they are very much in listen and understand [mode], and they then push their parents to act." - Tim Cook #Indoctrination #Apple

1/ This is clearly a #AssetManager #Bias since he is in the business of ONLY #COLLECTING #AUM ... The headline is "Half a trillion-dollar FII inflows may be heading India’s way and focus is on 3 sectors: Saurabh Mukherjea"

Lets look at the Data…
2/ The Share of INDIA DEDICATED FII money as a proportion of all the FII money in India today is about 7% from ACTIVE fund Managers . That Ratio of 7% about 10 years about was more like 12% and back in 2007-08, it was almost 25-30% .....
3/ So clearly 85% of the FII money in India IS NOT DEDICATED to India but a Regional Allocation from either Global Emerging Market funds or Asia Pacific Funds... The question is, if INDIA was so sexy, how come INDIA DEDICATED FII Money fell as a proportion

1/ Today on #StatswithCoreIM, let’s talk about #bias
2/ Let’s get started with a question: What type of bias do you think is present in this example?
3/ The answer is Verification bias! Verification bias is present when:

✔️The reference standard (gold standard) is not used for all cases [= emoji] partial verification

✔️there is more than one reference standard 🟰 differential verification

Makes for harrowing reading…👇…
“Parents can end up losing parenting time for trying to point out actual dangers because an evaluator assumes they are lying, he said.”…sounds familiar? #Cafcass
“She also suggested Elizabeth was projecting made-up medical problems onto her children when she sought advice for her daughter’s recurring stomach problems and expert opinions for her son’s special education needs.”
Sounds familiar? #FII

Journalist/News is not what it used to be. Public opinion is driven by perception rather than by fact. The proposition that endless repetition has caused too many of us to mistake ego for wisdom. Better to repeat than to verify.
Authentication costs money. There is rarely balanced reporting anymore, and the news is far removed from its original purpose.
If you want to know how Joe Biden performed in a debate, you will turn to our publicly funded ABC. Conversely, should you want to know how Donald Trump performed, you would turn to Sky News.

Very happy to share that The Oxford Handbook of Digital Ethics is now finished and will be out in the next few months! Some of it is already published online. If you're interested in #DigitalEthics, #AIEthics, #ethics, #privacy, #AI, #philosophy, this one is for you... 🧵👇 Image
In this chapter, @SvenNyholm relates the new area of the ethics of human–#robot interaction to traditional ethical theories such as #utilitarianism, Kantian #ethics, and virtue ethics. #AIEthics…
In this chapter, Emily Sullivan and Mark Alfano (@moral_psych) develop a normative epistemic framework for sharing information online. They argue recent technological developments call for a rethinking of the norms of testimony. #epistemology…

Saw @RealAndyLeeShow discovered Pollara, the polling firm who sent a biased "anger index" poll to the Toronto star today is in fact privy council funded.

I dug a bit further, Pollara staff has direct ties to the liberal party & Trudeau's office directly.

#cdnpoli #pravda #bias Image
1. The data was funded directly by privy council
2. Sent to far left-media directly
3. The truckers the poll demonizes were in Ottawa protesting against the #1 and #2 anger indexes:

Abusive covid response leading to human rights violations, inflation and criminal energy prices.
We need to consider whats going on here

Not only is Trudeau funding state propaganda, but the research behind it

Trudeau's office is directly funding polling research, headed by former liberal staffers to supply biased data to leak to state funded left wing media outlets.

”She's moody, probably because she's a teenage girl, but could it be the #BirthControl?”
"She's acting so hormonal."
"Her moods are crazy, she's PMSing all the time."
Moods have nothing to do with #gender and sex hormones! These #stereotypes only perpetuate #bias. 🧵 #MedTwitter
Let's start with #hormones. Hormones are chemicals released by certain organs that carry messages to other organs. Everyone has hormones. Changes in hormone levels can affect our moods but having hormones does not make someone moody.
The reproductive (and other) organs produce the sex hormones (#progesterone, #estrogen, and #testosterone) in all people, just in different quantities. These levels can vary throughout the day and over time.

This just out: Physicians do not logically/correctly estimate the probability of outcomes resulting from sequences of events - a thread. #conjunctionfallacy #probability #medicaldecisionmaking #clinicalreasoning #innumeracy #numeracy… @JAMANetworkOpen
In this article, we showed that physicians estimated the probability of two events both occurring as *more* likely than one or both of the individual events. This is logically impossible and consistent with the #conjunctionfallacy. This #bias can lead to catastrophic outcomes
The impetus for the study was an #OBGYN catastrophe that resulted, in part, from this bias. A woman presented in labor w brow presentation. For successful vaginal delivery, 2 events must happen: reversion to deliverable position, and vaginal delivery w/o #caesareansection

“Data don’t lie”. But it typically requires a process of defining #research questions, hypotheses, methodology, interpreting and #dataviz that can introduce subjectivity and #bias. Scientific rigor and objectivity are key in #DataScience. Some #Tips for #DataScientists 🧵
Don’t dive straight into a dataset, domain knowledge is critical. Good #Science requires a theoretical understanding of a topic while #ignorance introduces bias. Sound domain knowledge enables you to ask the right questions and give relevant answers with #DataScience
Investigate the alternate hypothesis. Business questions asked to #DataScientists are often directive, as there already is a hypothesis. Don’t confirm this hypothesis without properly investigating the alternate option.

💭The issue is that Racism exists on all levels. And because its so embedded in our societies, it's hard to recognize and even harder to change. Image
