Last was a packed event on trust and the #ethics of #AI at the University of Toronto. I highly recommend the entire event, but I particularly liked the talk by @jud1ths1mon on whether we can (or should) trust AI and the talk by Justin Biddle on organizational perspectives on trust and values in AI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOtldG-ZM4s (3/3) #AIEthics
Interested in #Social #AR at #wwdc23?
There are #ethics issues.
Here's the criticism of "anti-social" #AR glasses from me,
P.S. I'm seeking work. You might want someone on your team who thinks about these things!
Trump Made Over $82 Million From His Businesses in Scotland, Ireland While President
The former Republican president's repeated promotion of his properties to the media and other world leaders amounted to "diplomatic malpractice," one ethics official said.
He embroiled himself in what one watchdog group called "extraordinary conflicts of interest" stemming from his frequent trips to his properties in the two countries while he was in office.
@athinkinganarchist @MnemosyneSinger Oh, I know this one! It's the trolley problem.
Perfect exercise for people who think that every #ethics problem has a simple, obvious, black and white answer. I mean it should be obvious, but in other, more complex situations, deciding where to pull the lever is not so straightforward.
THIS IS WHY indecisive people have such a hard time with choices, BTW. Every option can feel like a crisis in the making.

What could it possibly mean to join #ethics and #nature?
To find an answer to the question „how do we want to live?“, we had not only to ask humans, but also animals, plants, rivers and seas. And they had to ask us. That latter point is as crucial as the first. They are inseparable.
The constituent assembly would be one of a multitude of persons, who may have only one thing in common: a „how“.
"The so-called #RightsOfNature movement, which originated in the United States some 50 years ago, has gained traction in recent years thanks to growing attention to the importance of protecting #nature as part of combating #climatechange and #biodiversity loss
A growing number of countries have laws granting #ecosystems legal #rights, and court rulings in India and Colombia have recognized such rights and stressed the government’s duty to protect it"

Who regulates the regulators? Who regulates the #Mastodon admin? The answer, generally, is no one! They can decide to delete your account, without a warning, at a whim (e.g. if they're in a bad mood, etc) If the admin suspends (deletes) your account, that means you can’t move your account to another instance (you have to start a new one). Account suspension prevents you from transferring the "followers" list. That list could be your friends, colleagues, lover, whistle-blower, you name it.
Effectively, there is zero accountability for Mastodon servers! So, when you read posts that say it doesn't matter what Mastodon server you join, that’s misinformation! Ideally, you’d know and trust the admin personally - that’s the most secure way to protect your data (but, not usually practical). Now if you complain, many admins will say, to paraphrase “You can always run your own server!”. Like they think everyone has the time and resources to do so (it’s just their way of avoiding the problems associated with the network)
My previous account was "suspended", without warning and with no written reason given, by the admin of climate justice social (the irony) https://climatejustice.social/@empiricism . I just received an email that said “Account suspended. You can no longer use your account, and your profile and other data are no longer accessible. You can still login to request a backup of your data until the data is fully removed in about 30 days, but we will retain some basic data to prevent you from evading the suspension”
But, as mentioned. You can’t transfer your followers list (effectively, unless you have copied all the followers' addresses – the admin has deleted them!)
I assume the account deletion was because I'd made an accusation public (a private message from the admin), regarding the unfair conduct of ecoevo.social and climatejustice.social admin (they prefer to do their account warnings, etc, behind the scenes. i.e., no public accountability for their decisions). I posted publicly a link to a conversation I had with another person, in which I said that the OP was being prejudiced. In my public post, I linked to the conversation (made it public) that I was being warned of (by the admin). I asked people (the public on Mastodon) what do they think about the conversation? But, before I received any replies, the account was suspended (deleted).
I've asked this before on Mastodon without receiving any reasonable answer. How can anyone trust Mastodon if people can't backup up their own followers' list? There is no agency in the current system. A server could crash, the owner may just decide to close it or run out of money to finance it, etc.
So, this is a security flaw that should be addressed. The only reason I can think of why this security flaw isn’t been addressed (openly talked about with the seriousness it deserves) is that the server owners, don't believe it’s in their interest. However, evidently, it’s in the Mastodon community's interest to have a system in which they can easily back up the follower's list and have some democratic accountability from the admin. Fundamentally, it should not be up to the servers admin to delete a person's followers list (not even Twitter, Facebook, etc, would do that without any warning! Well, maybe they would, I haven’t used those networks in years)
What methods can a user of the #mastodon network use to back up the "followers" list? (since the software developers seem to be against it) The last time I asked this, the reply I received, I assume from an admin was to quote "You can download a copy of your follows list". Evidently, intentionally tried to avoid the question I was asking because I stated the “followers” list.
So, can Mastodon be a better alternative to #Twitter, etc? or is this just lip service? Because business as usual is the money controlling the general flow of information! (& that’s a form of corruption).
For the Fediverse to be decentralized, people will be able to connect to the network without any “middlemen” (that’s a given). So, can we have an adult discussion about what’s best for a social media network? Without it being monopolized and parasitized by the age-old corruption of social power (e.g. money). I doubt it, but…..

The #Supreme #Court was #enabling #corruption well before the Clarence Thomas scandal
The court’s own #ethics have come under renewed scrutiny lately thanks to revelations about Justice Clarence Thomas, among others.
What’s less widely appreciated is the court’s accumulating record of making political corruption easier to engage in and harder to prosecute.
I mean, any such list that is signed by Sam Altman is a fraud. How bold is that to realease a system and then warn the world about its risks? Just take it down, and the risk is gone!
But the real reason behind that move is of course the other fraud: that we deal with "artificial intelligence". We do not.
We deal with the insidious intelligence of business people who know that fraud is a money machine.
Why do all these Bostromians not see the obvious solution to their anxiety: No #AI ?
Because that might threaten *their* jobs?
And why do they consistently forget to add the #climatecrisis to their list of extinction risks?

What all this told Timnit Gebru, she says, is that big tech is consumed by a drive to develop AI and “you don’t want someone like me who’s going to get in your way. I think it made it really clear that unless there is external pressure to do something different, companies are not just going to self-regulate. We need regulation and we need something better than just a profit motive.”
