The days of grassroots campaigning and political buttons are long gone. Candidates have found a new way of running, a new manager. Algorithms and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are quickly becoming the standard when it comes to the campaign trail. These predictive algorithms could be deciding the votes of millions using the information of potential voters.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has made headlines for its use in everything from education to healthcare. Less well known, however, is its use by the American Department of Defense. Autonomous machines are able to complete many tasks without human supervision, from conducting missions to language translation, making AI highly useful in warfare. However, this new and innovative technology does not come without several shortcomings.

AI can be particularly useful when it comes to gathering intelligence about enemies due to the large data sets available for analysis. For example, Project Maven, a Pentagon AI project, uses algorithms to comb through footage taken…

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming increasingly prevalent in our every day lives, and has recently found its way into hiring practices all across the United States. In hopes of finding potential employees more efficiently, many employers are using machine-learning algorithms to search through social profiles and online resumes to find the best person for the job based on set characteristics. As objective as this algorithm may seem, it can play a very negative role.

On the surface, the use of AI in hiring practices seems nothing but helpful. After all, what’s wrong with saving some time and money? However, studies…


A.I. is becoming increasingly prevalent in our everyday lives, and it has recently found its way into hiring practices all across the United States. In hopes of finding potential employees more efficiently, many employers are using machine-learning algorithms also known as AI to search through social profiles and online resumes to find the best person for the job based on certain traits. As objective as this algorithm seems simply going through various online profiles, let’s dive deep into how this can play a negative role in people’s lives.

On the surface, the use of A.I. in hiring practices seems to…
