  • Trouble is with advanced artificial intelligence systems governments (not mentioning any names) now have the ability to prevent transparency so nobody knows where to look any more.


    You don't need advanced artificial intelligence to hide data and keep it offline. The government of Georgia is hiding lots of data about COVID-19 using old fashioned human intelligence. Actually, human stupidity. The people hiding the data, such as the governor, are not the sharpest knives in the drawer. They are, so to speak, a few tacos short of a fiesta platter. Their notion of how to avoid panic and keep the schools open is to refuse to tell parents and teachers how many students are sick. This is like coming on stage in crowded theater and announcing:


    "Ladies and gentlemen, there is no fire. No fire at all. That smoke you see is deliberate. The screams and sounds of running from backstage mean nothing. Ignore the sirens. On with the show!"


    Preventing transparency is dead easy. Just keep the data out of Google and other search tools with a Robots content="noindex" tag. If you don't trust the search engine web crawlers to honor this, make the folder hidden. No artificial intelligence needed.


    I think what Lowell Wood had in mind is that a fantastic amount of information is available on the web these days. Generally speaking. But information that corporations and governments want to keep hidden is usually hidden. Data from before the internet may be available by accident, but sometime around the year 2000 governments and corporations began to realize how easily information can be accessed, and they took steps to hide it.


    There are some categories of information that one group is trying to hide while others are doing all they can to make the information available. Scientific journal publishers are trying to hide papers. Web sites such as sci-hub are making them public. Sci-hub seems to be winning. See:
