Sharing my perspective on this subject:  AI technology is moving so rapidly that if we don’t pay attention – and most people don’t – it will deal the final blow to what little is left of our privacy.  Our personal lives will no longer be personal.  We will become ‘profiles’ for governments, corporations, employers, and private citizens with the resources (aka $$$$$) to access and review and analyze.  Our humanity reduced to data on a server somewhere.   AI will record all our faces for what?  because it can?  The image our appearance, our moods and expressions, presents to the world is joining the rest of the 0’s and 1’s already accumulated to identify us.  No one will have any privacy their entire lives and we have yet to see the price we’ll all pay for it.   AmishHomo
