That’s not true for Hillary Clinton, who knows what it takes to win and has an inexhaustible supply of money (much of it from foreign potentates and Wall Street). She monitised her position as Secretary of State very successfully taking bribe after bribe, crafted as ‘donations to the Clinton Foundation’.
Google proposed to work with Hillary to get her elected. It’s laid out in detail on the e-mail snagged from the ether by WikiLeaks:
“Key is the development of a single record for a voter that aggregates all that is known about them. In 2016 smart phones will be used to identify, meet, and update profiles on the voter. A dynamic volunteer can easily speak with a voter and, with their email or other digital handle, get the voter videos and other answers to areas they care about (‘the benefits of ACA to you’ etc.)”
For each voter, a score is computed ranking probability of the right vote.
“Analytics can model demographics, social factors and many other attributes of the needed voters. Modeling will tell us what who we need to turn out and why, and studies of effectiveness will let us know what approaches work well. Machine intelligence across the data should identify the most important factors for turnout, and preference. It should be possible to link the voter records in Van with upcoming databases from companies like Comcast and others for media measurement purposes.”
“Quite a bit of software is to be developed to match digital identities with the actual voter file with high confidence. The key unit of the campaign is a ‘voter’, and each and every record is viewable and updatable by volunteers in search of more accurate information. In the case where we can’t identify the specific human, we can still have a partial digital voter id, for a person or ‘probable-person’ with attributes that we can identify and use to target. As they respond we can eventually match to a registered voter in the main file. This digital key is eventually matched to a real person.”
We live in an age of very little privacy, where machine intelligence is getting smarter and will be working to sway YOU as an individual.
