5 Privacies You Didn't Know You Lost

Recommended Posts

We all know that privacy is a thing of the past, right? Pfff. The government spying on everyone? That's yesterday's news. But if you think you've heard it all when it comes to the obtrusive police state panopticon, you've got another thing coming. Here are five privacies you didn't even realize you lost.

Informative and quite Orwellian information from the corbettreport...

They can capture and store all of this data, but when they get the ability to truly process it and run algorithms off of it (and plug it into AI), that's when its gonna get scary... Are we already there?

We have no privacy.  They love to snoop on everyone.  Snowden revealed it publicly, but most of us knew we have no privacy.  Today they tap into our computers, phones,  etc.  Tomorrow they will find a way to tap into our brains.

I think we are. The field of psychometrics was a hot topic in the70s. Isaac Asimov's Foundation Trilogy was about a group of 'psycometricians' who manipulated mankinds future with mathematical formulas and staging events. Predicting the future and guiding mankind so they could survive. All for the greater good, pf course.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychometrics

Psychometrics is a field of study concerned with the theory and technique of psychological measurement. As defined by the National Council on Measurement in Education (NCME), psychometrics refers to psychological measurement. Generally, it refers to the field in psychology and education that is devoted to testing, measurement, assessment, and related activities.[1]

The field is concerned with the objective measurement of skills and knowledge, abilities, attitudes, personality traits, and educational achievement. Some psychometric researchers focus on the construction and validation of assessment instruments such as questionnaires, tests, raters' judgments, and personality tests. Others focus on research relating to measurement theory (e.g., item response theory; intraclass correlation).

Practitioners are described as psychometricians. Psychometricians usually possess a specific qualification, and most are psychologists with advanced graduate training. In addition to traditional academic institutions, many psychometricians work for the government or in human resourcesdepartments. Others specialize as learning and development professionals.

Measurement and quantification is ubiquitous in modern society. In early modernity, the scientific revolution provided a firm scientific basis for physical measures like temperature, pressure, and so on. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, a similar revolution took place in psychology with the measurement of intelligence and personality. A crucial role was played by Psychometrics, initially defined as "The art of imposing measurement and number upon operations of the mind" (Galton, 1879, p149). Since 1936 the Psychometric Society has been at the forefront of the development of formal theories and methods to study the appropriateness and fidelity of psychological measurements. Because measurement in psychology is often done with tests and questionnaires, it is rather imprecise and subject to error. Consequently, statistics plays a major role in psychometrics. For example, members of the society have devoted much attention to the development of statistical methods for the appraisal of noisy measurements whose outcomes are considered indicators of attributes of interest that can not be directly observed.

Today, psychometrics covers virtually all statistical methods that are useful for the behavioral and social sciences including the handling of missing data, the combination of prior information with measured data, measurement obtained from special experiments, visualization of statistical outcomes, measurement that guarantees personal privacy, and so on. Psychometric models and methods now have a wide range of applicability in various disciplines such as education, industrial and organizational psychology, behavioral genetics, neuropsychology, clinical psychology, medicine, and even chemistry.

@oldcynic As well as all new members.

 

We are being monitored and as this thread's title says - we have no freedom - PLEASE do not post lyrics of songs even worse if you "modify" them.  We at COP need to guard and protect the little we still have.

 

Thanx!

did you wonder why they built the HUGE DATA storage bank in Utah a few years ago?? that is because they HAD discovered how to do faster data retrieval, it was announced as a break thru , i think at Berkley, but was a fed funded project. we have been screwed over for years and most just sleep on the couch, getting their dose of brainwashing TV.

very disheartening!! :angry:

We are all paying for this stuff.  They use our tax dollars to finance this.  They use money from our pensions and 401k's to finance Facebook, Verizon, Google, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft and so on.  We are effectively digging our own graves.
