In a recent article post, the World Economic Forum (WEF) began calling for a “global intelligence collecting AI” to be created to help censor content across social media which the WEF believes should be removed.
The WEF article, written by Inbal Goldberger, notes how the human beings currently working in content moderation and censorship “are challenged by an ever-growing list of abuses, such as child abuse, extremism, disinformation, hate speech and fraud; and increasingly advanced actors misusing platforms in unique ways.”
The WEF believes the “solution” to censor ideas contrasting the WEF’s standards is not to hire any more human content moderators, but to roll out artificial intelligence.
In a draconian recommendation, the WEF explains: “By uniquely combining the power of innovative technology, off-platform intelligence collection and the prowess of subject-matter experts who understand how threat actors operate, scaled detection of online abuse can reach near-perfect precision.”
The AI would not be used to review content posted on social media platforms but would be constructed “to detect nuanced, novel abuses at scale, before they reach mainstream platforms.”
Essentially, the WEF would capture intelligence or data from millions of sources across the internet and “subject matter experts”, wielding the power of artificial intelligence, would be able to prevent any content they consider dangerous, from ever even reaching social media platforms.
This development in the WEF’s narrative could lead to a suppression of First Amendment rights across America. With artificial intelligence capturing data from millions of sources throughout the internet, users banned from Twitter could automatically face equal censorship on other social media platforms, such as Instagram, Facebook, etc.
Additionally, individuals who operate under anonymous handles or usernames may ultimately have their identity exposed, especially if they utilize multiple social media platforms.
Independent journalist Igor Chudov explained the potential ramifications that could occur under such WEF AI protocol: “For example, user @JohnSmith12345 may have a Twitter account and narrowly abide by Twitter rules, but at the same time have a Gettr account where he would publish anti-vaccine messages. Twitter would not be able to suspend @JohnSmith12345’s account.”
“That is no longer acceptable to the WEF because they want to silence people and ideas, not individual messages or accounts,” Chudov added.
By collecting data across the entirety of the internet, the WEF could profile specific individuals as being too dangerous and essentially banish them from social media entirely.
