"Artificial intelligence" is remarkably dumb. It's pretty much, if you do X, we will serve you more X -- whatever X might be.

In this case, a teenage girl might look an image of self-harm. So the "AI" decides to serve her more images of self-harm. And all in the name of corporate profit.

And fun fact I just learned: "Catherine wheel" is English for "firework."

And she doesn't have the experience to know the slave can be retrained for better outcomes (although it is a long, ongoing process).

I've been training the Instagram engine to give me dogs, girls in short skirts, and golf swings.

It has yet to find any content combining all 3 though

to today's depressed teens.  Social media is entirely voluntary.  you will not die if you don't have and constantly monitor your SM account.  in fact, it seems you stand to live a fair bit longer if you don't.

also - toughen up buttercups.  they are just words, written by morons who you will likely completely forget about in 5 years time.

i really don't understand this.  if it makes you unhappy why do you continue with it.  why do you keep drinking the spoiled milk1?

1. I'm with the good Doctor's garment; toughen up buttercup.

2. The AI tends to suck.  I routinely get advertising in languages I don't speak.  Why am I seeing a Toyota ad in Chinese?  If you can't get the language right, how wrong are you going to be with everything else.
