How a Computer Predicts Schizophrenia and Psychosis - The Atlantic
“'In our study, we found that minimal semantic coherence—the flow of meaning from one sentence to the next—was characteristic of those young people at risk who later developed psychosis ... It was not the average. What this means is that over 45 minutes of interviewing, these young people had at least one occasion of a jarring disruption in meaning from one sentence to the next. As an interviewer, if my mind wandered briefly, I might miss it. But a computer would pick it up.'"

I Liked Everything I Saw on Facebook for Two Days. Here’s What It Did to Me | Gadget Lab | WIRED
"By the end of day one, I noticed that on mobile, my feed was almost completely devoid of human content."

"As day one rolled into day two, I began dreading going to Facebook."

"This is a problem much bigger than Facebook. It reminded me of what can go wrong in society, and why we now often talk _at_ each other instead of _to_ each other. We set up our political and social filter bubbles and they reinforce themselves—the things we read and watch have become hyper-niche and cater to our specific interests. We go down rabbit holes of special interests until we're lost in the queen's garden, cursing everyone above ground."
