Social Credit System by 2025

The 2025 part is my thinking, but the purpose of the thread is to think outside the box and open a discussion on the coming convergence of these 3 factors.

1. AI
2. Loss of privacy
3. Social Credit System

To provide a basis for any common discussion, reading this Wikipedia article will help set a framework.

I believe that this will happen, and can be positive...

YMMV... but that's what discussions are about.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

Inevitable it may be, but that doesn't make it good.

Somebody here has a tagline to the effect that any power that can be abused will be abused. They are spot on.

Paying it forward is the best investment.

The thing with AI's and the social credit system is:
Who gets to train the AI? (= whose biases are going to be imprinted on the system)
Who determines what is a social "credit" or a social "debit"? There are a few slam dunks, but there is a heck of a lot of no-mans-land in between.

I see nothing positive here.
And I'm not placing any bets on a dystopian future for the US - at least not in my lifetime.
