Algorithmic Bids for Ad Revenue Dividing Our Society?

TED talk Eli Pariser describing how websites are only telling us what we want to hear, presumably because it makes us more likely to stay on their site and click on their advertisements. Is this a problem, or do you appreciate the robots telling you what you want?


  1. It's just market strategy... [or maybe one day bots will kill us all]

  2. It's all about the money, as you may notice, once companies have plenty of money they start being more creative. Case in point: Google.

  3. I for one welcome our new robot overlords!
