The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency is using an AI-powered tool, Giant Oak Search Technology (GOST), to scan social media posts for content deemed “derogatory” to the U.S. This system ranks a person’s social media scores from one to 100 based on its relevance to the user’s perceived mission. This has raised concerns about privacy and the ethical implications of such surveillance. Patrick Toomey, Deputy Director of the ACLU’s National Security Project, voiced concerns about the government’s use of algorithms to scrutinize social media posts. A study by the Pew Research Center revealed that 32% of Americans believe that AI in hiring and evaluating workers is more likely to harm rather than help job applicants and employees. A Reuters poll found that most Americans see AI as a threat to humanity. The broader implications of such technological advancements are undeniable, as AI offers efficiency and precision, but also poses potential threats to individual privacy rights. #AI #Privacy #SocialMediaSurveillance #EthicalImplications
