"The A.I. will know who you are and what's important to you"   /!\

"(...) the social networking giant already uses A.I. for such tasks as authenticating a user (and predicting if it's the actual user or a Russian spammer), loading a user's News Feed and choosing which out of the tens of thousands of potential stories available to offer up. 

"We use A.I. predictives to know what you're interested in and what's in each post," We need help getting the information you need. We'll need A.I. even more for that. "The A.I. will know who you are and what's important to you" " 

"If you’ve ever felt like your Facebook News Feed is filled with people you don’t care about sharing thoughts or you didn’t particularly want to hear (/!\), you’ll appreciate (/!\) why Facebook is pushing to further the art of artificial intelligence. In its current form, the social network is still far better at collecting vast amounts of data than understanding what that data means. Advanced AI could help emphasize the stuff that’s truly relevant to you (/!\), keeping you on the service longer and boosting your attractiveness as a subject for targeted advertising. "

"The 2016 USA election took place under the spectre of the “filter bubble”. Tens of millions of American voters gets their news on Facebook, where highly personalized news feeds dish up a steady stream of content that reinforces users’ pre-existing beliefs.
Facebook users are increasingly sheltered from opposing viewpoints – and reliable news sources – and the viciously polarized state of USA's national politics appears to be one of the results."

How Lovely: "We show, via a massive experiment on Facebook (/!\), that emotional states can be transferred to others via emotional contagion, leading people to experience the same emotions without their awareness."

"secret study involving 689,000 users in which friends' postings were moved to influence moods"
"a vast experiment in which it manipulated information posted on 689,000 users' home pages and found it could make people feel more positive or negative through a process of "emotional contagion""

Last but not least: "Google, Facebook, Amazon join forces on future of AI"
"Amazon, Google's DeepMind, Facebook, IBM and Microsoft will work together on issues such as privacy, safety and the collaboration between people and AI."
