Will artificial intelligence render religion obsolete within our lifetimes? Some people think so (here).
I’m not a neophyte in the field, but there are different ways of constructing AI to use networks as tools. The power of those networks is clearly growing in such a way as to provide predictive information that has a strong degree of confidence. It’s not machine based “Minority Report”, but along those lines, using information that is not classified – – totally open source (expansive integrated meta data + AI).
Ethics in privacy and civil rights enter in but when we give away so much of our privacy willingly, it’s difficult to blame the people who build the machines that then use it.
It comes to the point where you have to be wiling to give up your cell phone, computer, credit cards, television cable subscription, etc. — moving completely off the grid. Most of us can’t do all of those things and earn a living. Some few can.
I’ll leave my opinion on the matter to my responses to comments that you may choose to make.
