The future of shopping includes maximum information and convenience, but no privacy; data thus collected will profile you for marketers, health care, employment, education, etc. Technocracy is the science of social management.
4th Industrial Revolution
The race is on to develop various types of exoskeletons to turn ordinary human workers into supermen or superwomen. This technology was originally spawned by the military in their quest for super-soldiers on the battlefield.
The Internet, controlled and manipulated by transformative Technocrats, is in jeopardy of meltdown to the same degree that democracies are being rapidly eroded around the world. Programs and web sites are made by man and thus are able to be reinvented to serve humanity instead of enslave it. However, the goal of Technocracy is Social Engineering, which is antithetical to the citizens it seeks to control.
You will walk in, walk out, get billed and go home with stuff. Amazon will have collected massive psychographic information about you. What items did you look at? How long did you stare? Did you read the ingredients? Did you frown or smile? Just see what awaits you when you go shopping again… ads, coupons, verbal encouragements, etc. Go home to your computer and start browsing – watch what ads appear onscreen. This is far from humorous and portends a Scientific Dictatorship from which there is no escape.
At the end of the day, tt will be tech-saturated human Technocrats, not programs, that create the anti-human policies and outcomes that harm humanity. They will hide behind AI to escape responsibility, and everyone will think that the algorithms did them in.
Technocrats invent because they can, not because they are answering a particular need; autonomous vehicles are going to be shoved down our collective throat. Testing is also taking place with Waymo vehicles in Gilbert, Arizona. When initial testing is completed, a wave of driverless cars, vans, busses and trucks will begin to displace privately owned vehicles of all types.
Waymo’s parent company is Google, which is bent on installing Technocracy throughout the world, with Technocrats like them running things. Some are saying that no one will own a car in 20 years, that all transportation will be a service.
Ray Kurzweil is the father of Technocracy and Transhumanism and heads up engineering at Google. The Technocrat mind never believes that its invention could or would ever fail. This is a fatal flaw in their social engineering schemes.
It is true that Sophia the robot is the magician’s foil to lead people to erroneous observations and conclusions about Artificial Intelligence. In his book, Connectography, Dr. Parag Khanna hints at a better picture of the underlying and enabling role of AI: ”We are building this global society without a global leader. Global order is no longer something that can be dictated or controlled from the top down. Globalization is itself the order.”
Sophia smiled at them and they collectively swooned as the delusion of AI hardened; however, she apparently wasn’t required to wear a burka. The Saudi’s plan on using robots extensively in the building of their new city, Neom.
