Data brokers, les courtiers de nos données
Tous les jours, tels de Petits Poucets numériques, nous semons, nous semons, et nous semons encore. Pas des cailloux, mais plutôt des données. Parfois, nous y consentons. Souvent, c’est à notre corps défendant. On le sent, on le sait, la technologie modèle le monde. Elle le change, elle le reformate. Ca va vite, et, il faut bien le dire, on a parfois du mal à suivre le rythme.  

On pourrait tout arrêter et se dire que le futur, c’était mieux avant. Au lieu de ça, chaque samedi, pendant tout l’été, nous essaierons ensemble de jeter de la lumière où elle manque cruellement. Car bien souvent, nos choix technologiques sont des boîtes noires dont il est difficile de percer le secret.

Taibbi on Facebook: Can We Be Saved From the Social Media Giant?
Facebook didn't just use its data to help advertisers place targeted ads. It also used AI-enhanced technology and tools like GPS to track users' information in order to learn more and more about them, all while constantly improving the reach and power of the company's advertising capabilities. In perhaps the creepiest example, Facebook applied for (and received, last year) a patent for a tool called Techniques, for emotion detection and content delivery. It would use the camera in your phone to take pictures of you as you scroll through content. Facebook would then use facial analysis to measure how much you did or did not like the content in question, so as to determine what kind of stuff to send your way. Ideas like this are what make Facebook, at times, feel like a giant blood-engorged tick hanging off your frontal lobe.
