TheVoiceOfJoyce Misinformation on a grand scale comes from ex President Trump and followers, retweeting at an unprecedented rate. Misinformation abounds on Facebook and Twitter, their algorithms promote retweets and up until a few months ago, on Twitter, politicians were given an unlimited platform for their campaigns and fund raising. Twitter has just banned misinformation on Covid and elections. Facebook has not and allows misinformation to polarize American Society and our Politics. When you look at the volume of tweets and retweets at least 50% are automated. Trump learned how to weaponize Social Media in the run up to the 2016 election. His retweets have been successful thru his grass roots network, beginning with Trump Jr, Lin Wood, Powell and Steve Bannon. The alt right has been planning their messaging for 30 yrs. With the advent of Social Media, AI and the Social Media business model, there is no regulation of malicious content. Most Platforms, excluding Twitter recently and TikTok this week, allow politicians leeway to say whatever they want. Considering the harm to the Public, Social Media Platforms require Congressional Legislation to protect us from lies and misinformation that harms us and our Democracy. Unfortunately, Voices for Democracy and the truth are not equally represented.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2020/10/30/trump-twitter-domestic-disinformation/ While researchers believe there is a significant degree of automation powering Trump’s megaphone, they do not contend that he or his supporters routinely break Twitter’s rules. The company allows enthusiastic followers to use software to automatically retweet people, and though the company bans “bulk retweeting,” it does not disclose at what point frequent retweeting … More TheVoiceOfJoyce Misinformation on a grand scale comes from ex President Trump and followers, retweeting at an unprecedented rate.

TheVoiceOfJoyce At least 10 previous Nobel Laureates for peace, have presented an open letter to the World’s leaders, requesting that they rein in Big Tech. Why? The Social Media platforms, business models, promote disinformation, hate and abuse, undermining Democracies everywhere, creating cultural divides. “We the People” are being manipulated by Big Techs Surveillance Capitalist models. They predict our behavior & sell our data to undermine our Democracy and target investigative journalism & journalists. The Nobel Laureates call upon the EU to strengthen their rules and enforce the compliance of Tech Platforms to remove disinformation algorithms. There is only one fact and Social Media Platforms create two realities, disrupting Democracy through their promotion of cultural divides. Robust laws and an investment in Investigative journalism, would highlight the disruptive business model of Tech Platforms, that divide us!

TheVoiceOfJoyce We need each other to think outside our spheres of knowledge. Working from home isolates us and makes us less creative because we’re lacking information and ideas that don’t come from only one group. That’s why Internet Scientists missed their opportunity to regulate Derivatives before the Financial Ctisis and lost another opportunity to install anti Hacking coding into critical infrastructure! Monolithic thinking hinders progress we need to continue to learn about how we interact with each other and how “ tribes” create innovation. People are more productive and innovative when working together. A lot of information is exchanged over the “ water cooler” or lunch out!

TheVoiceOfJoyce NASA plans to revisit Venus by the end of this decade to understand, Venus’ topography, atmosphere, water capabilities? All unknown. Space exploration sets man on a path to acquiring more knowledge about our own plant and the creation of the Universe and the essence of Life. I’m convinced this use of science and technology filters down and benefits mankind! Science & technology, too important not to teach!

TheVoiceOfJoyce Understanding what drives low Vaccination rates is attributed to 4 profiles, cutting across race & politics. There are those who mis trust government and might benefit from a Religious leader or an icon discussing their experiences. In poor states, like Mississippi, people have no safety net, they can’t afford to leave work. They need paid time off and places that are convenient for them to receive theVaccine. Churches, groceries, work place. Then there are peopke still on the sidelines waiting to see what happens? It will be 6 months in late Summer since many of us were vaccinated. Hearing our survival stories might help. Good luck! Herd immunity is our goal. Hope the holdouts are convinced soon, pressure is mounting to share our excess vaccines with the World’s less fortunate population

TheVoiceOfJoyce The Colonial pipeline hacking creates a state of emergency for the entire East Coast. There are no contingency plans , no alternate suppliers. This is an opportunity to add skilled IT to all critical infrastructure and decentralized & decoupling significant sources of energy. Monopolies don’t work. Especially, monopolies who never plan for worst case scenarios. In a World with AI intelligence, individuals & Nation states able to disrupt our services , we need to be equally as smart, accountable and transparent to government, employees & citizen oversight.
