A citizen sent you this inquiry from the project Sociality.
The use of this technology should be banned, it is dangerous for citizens and society. Please asses this patent and consider to outlaw its implementation with advocacy, new legislation, or legal action.
Advocating for technology regulation needs more support and activism. Tech companies have gained enormous political power and the legal instruments available struggle to keep pace with the technological developments. If you are passionate about law and politics please help the Sociality project with instruments and contacts that you have available for regulating socially dangerous information technology.
The Sociality project intervenes by seeking social accountability for the creation and deployment of unethical artificial intelligence, user experience and interface design, data mining, network monitoring, mind sensors, and algorithms. These technologies should be handled and regulated as in similar developments in chemistry, biology, and genetics. As such, the banning of toxic and dangerous inventions should extend to information technology.
