My 2c on #ElonMusk #TwitterTakeover: If Musk implements his announcements, it means that Twitter can pack up here in Europe.
With free speech absolutism, he underestimates the consequences for our democracy and will clash with obligations under the EU's #DigitalServicesAct.
#ElonMusk will soon be confronted with the #DigitalServicesAct: content moderation in the EU must meet high standards & respect all fundamental rights. The #DSA contains many strict rules for the biggest platforms - and Twitter will very likely fall in the VLOPs category.
The #DigitalServicesAct means that Twitter has to invest in human content moderators, it has to comply with due diligence obligations, such as risk assessments of its service & algorithms for society. If he doesn't comply: there will be heavy fines!

Seeing ongoing difficulty in getting ANYTHING passed through Congress & can’t help but think: none of the digital rulemaking linked to #antitrust, #contentmoderation or, already a long shot, #privacy is going to happen before the midterms, if not the 2024 presidential election
This is frustrating in some many ways (and, tbf, I’m a cynic on US rulemaking anyway). I wonder if @FrancesHaugen’s testimony will change the dynamics, but I doubt it. Digital policymaking and the fight against “Big Tech” is just not a priority
If you can barely pass a budget or an infrastructure bill, is there really an appetite for #ArtificialIntelligence rules or platform regulation? I find that hard to believe, especially as mid-term electioneering is already around the corner

FILED: @CenDemTech filed an amicus brief joined by @EFF, @mediacoalition, @ncacensorship, @PENamerica & @RSI urging 9th Circuit to allow Twitter’s lawsuit – against TX AG Ken Paxton for retaliating against its #contentmoderation decisions – to go forward.

@EFF @mediacoalition @ncacensorship @PENamerica @RSI This lawsuit isn’t just about Twitter’s #FirstAmendment right to moderate content. Government coercion of social media companies is on the rise, in the U.S. & around the world, and the Court’s decision will affect users worldwide.
@EFF @mediacoalition @ncacensorship @PENamerica @RSI Paxton’s retaliatory investigation of Twitter discourages it from moderating content, which is bad for users & public. We need companies to do more to address #disinformation, #hatespeech, & harassment in a way that respects human rights w/o being chilled by gov't interference.

"We are the #Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. #ResistanceIsFutile."

So if one-fifth of @Facebook's employees work on #AR/#VR, have all of them done a stint as a content #moderator? And given its toxic business model why doesn't #Facebook have at least as many *employees* (not contractors) working on #ContentModeration as it does AR?
Also, whether you believe #data '#TheNewOil' or that a better analogy is #ToxicWaste, for #BigTech / the #platforms the result's the same.

Using ML/DL/AI/AR/VR to extract value involves energy-intensive processing and doesn't factor in other externalities like cultural damage...

1. Talking at #EmTechDigital today on 'Preparing for #Deepfakes: Trust and Truth' placing in broader framework of how we think about AI and social good. My cliffnotes here in this thread events.technologyreview.com/emtech/digital… (in great company with @red_abebe and @latonero)
2. Quick intro for those don't know @witnessorg; work on helping anyone, anywhere using video and tech for human rights. We're focused on making you more effective, ethical and safe if you do. And that means also keeping eye out for emerging tech threats witness.org
3. Big emerging tech threats we're concerned about now are: #AI at intersection with #disinformation, #media manipulation and rising #authoritarianism. We know this is where the rubber hits the road for activists and civic witnesses on the ground.

1/ THREAD. What are possible #solutions to the threats #deepfakes and synthetic media could pose to evidence, truth and freedom of expression? Our survey from recent @witnessorg @firstdraftnews expert convening.
2/ Invest in MEDIA LITERACY + RESILIENCE/discernment for news consumers - how to spot both individual items of synthetic media (e.g. via visible anomalies such as mouth distortion often present in current deepfakes) as well as develop approaches to assessing image credibility
3/ Recent examples sharing commonsense guidance on this e.g. @CraigSilverman buzzfeed.com/craigsilverman… and @samanthsunne gijn.org/2018/05/28/wha…
