Scout combines science fiction and journalism into dispatches that contend with the future of technology.


The Rise of the Weaponized AI Propaganda Machine, by
is a wake-up call on par with the Snowden revelations.


Understanding Cambridge Analytica and the bigger AI Propaganda Machine is essential for anyone who wants to understand modern political power, build a movement, or keep from being manipulated.

The authors present a cogent and well-researched claim as to how the Power of Big Data and Psychographics and related algorithms combine to forge a propaganda machine with near unlimited potential to shape our societies.

Any company can aggregate and purchase big data, but Cambridge Analytica has developed a model to translate that data into a personality profile used to predict, then ultimately change your behavior.

This brave new entry sets a high bar for Scout, which shares content freely but limits discussion to a membership, which is currently (as of March 28/2017) by invite or waitlist.
