MOSCOW, December 7. /TASS/. The participants of the international session “Social and ethical challenges in the era of digitalization”, which was held in the framework of the forum “step into the future: artificial intelligence and the digital economy”, in Moscow, discussed why due to publications on social networks can refuse to work, how is the information space and why modern human knowledge of logic.

Forum dedicated to artificial intelligence and the digital economy, held on 6 and 7 December at the State University of management (sum).

“Information cocoon”

One of the key themes of the session was the change in the Outlook of people with the advent of modern methods of filtering the received information. Digitalisation has created new conditions for posttrade environment in which objective facts are less affect the formation of public opinion than appeals to emotion or personal beliefs. So, according to the chief of Department of analysis and monitoring of goo Alexei Verizhnikov, the development of Internet technologies, particularly social networking has given people the opportunity to surround yourself with the kind of information cocoon, in which they see the world they want. “Postpreda allows you to completely not to hear the opponent and ignore the facts,” he said.

According to a leading analyst of the Institute of Internet research, Dmitry Vinnik, in the concept of posttrade is nothing new, as similar phenomena in human behavior was also observed in other historical epochs. “Nothing in human nature has not changed, only increased the density of its communication activities,” he said, adding that the most effective resistance to posttrade — improvement of educational programs. “The emphasis should be on education, particularly on such a subject as logic, it would be a good method in combating the phenomena of postpreda,” said winnick.

Information is perceived distorted not only because of the individual filters of people, but also because of the bias of the media, said the editorial Director of Rambler & Co Victor Saxon. “There is no completely objective media, they still reflect the views of the one who dictates the editorial policy of a particular publication, he said. Media are primarily business. When posting content, the media often focus not on the reader and customer, which distorts the information, which then reaches the public.”

This is also the position of Advisor to the rector on issues of digitalization goo Paul Tirelessly. “The information we obtained should be reliable, but the accuracy in all ages has determined her personality” — he said. Tirelessly also noted that we used to trust the authorities, as few were authorized to broadcast to the masses in our time “to publish his thoughts by anyone, which complicates the determination of the reliability of the information.”

A digital footprint employment

Every Internet user leaves a digital footprint, it is his publications, photos, comments, experts say. General Director of the Social Data Hub Arthur Hechuan recommends to be careful to post on the Internet information about themselves, as employers are unable to refuse the candidate in the job-which they deem unacceptable. “The United States has a law that you can find out why denied jobs, and in court to challenge. Perhaps it would be right to introduce the same in Russia,” said Hechuan.

Search and selection of new employees, some companies rely on artificial intelligence. In this regard, the German expert in the field of Internet, e-business, social networking, and IT security Tim Cole expressed the hope that “the computers having access to all the information about the candidate, will only be used for the initial selection, in order to facilitate the work of people who will continue to choose from a narrower range of candidates”.

As noted by the Director of the research Institute for neuroeconomics, University of Ningbo MA Zingo, there is a contradiction between the rules of protection of personal information and what actually happens. “In some companies developed special software (FOR) for the protection of personal information, and in others — on the contrary, there is software that allows you to invade the personal lives of employees, to take screenshots of their desktop, see correspondence, to listen to the calls,” he said.

User data is in the hands of not only employers, but also from many companies of different orientation, which may also use your personal information. “If a person gives consent to their use for the formation of a new product, then the company should share the profits”, — said the Chairman of the Duma Committee on financial market Anatoly Aksakov.
