What FACEBOOK and GOOGLE are Hiding from world. TED Talk.

"There's an epic struggle going on between our future aspirational selves and our more impulsive selves...the best editing gives us a bit of both, some information vegetables and some information desserts..and the challenge with these algorithmic editors is that because they're looking at what you click on first, it can throw off that balance, and instead of a balanced diet, you can end up being surrounded by information junk food."

"What we're seeing is a passing of the torch, from human gatekeepers to algorithmic ones. And the thing is, the algorithms don't yet have the embedded ethics that the human ones did."

I'm not used to getting my information from YouTube, but this is very interesting.
