Politics: Information in Communism

Natalie Chan

Equality is the core value in a Communist society where all individuals have access to the same universal rights and basic needs. In the age of automation and artificial intelligence, the right to privacy is taken away from ci.vilians. Mass surveillance becomes the solution to control and organize individuals and resources to ensure an equal share of assets. People become data, and data points become one’s identity. All action and communication are traced, and no one can hide from data-collecting. With the advancements in Big Data, artificial intelligence and algorithm can better determine and predict any kinds of human-caused incidents. The decisions of tomorrow will be data-driv.en, and it is up to us, to be aware of what we are giving away in the digital world.
