FaceApp: Putin’s Favorite Application

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, this post has nothing to do with Vladimir Putin, man. Then again, this post may have everything to do with Putin, fam. The fact is, none of us really know where our data goes after we freely give it out. For me, that’s the inherent problem, bruh. All in all, I think the lot of us needs to fall back from all of these trends and internet shenanigans.

Ok, for those who don’t use social media, a particular photo-editing application has been taking over. Now, everyone on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter seems to be using FaceApp. Moving on, the app has the ability to alter a person’s picture, making them appear younger, older, of a different gender or any other combination of things. Recently, folks have been abusing the app and making themselves look like grandparents. In any case, the trend might’ve already jumped the shark and it’s only been a couple of days.

Now, with all of that being said, allow me to get into my conspiracy theorist bag. So, does anybody know where all of our information goes? Better yet, does anybody actually read the privacy terms for these apps? First, the company that owns FaceApp, Wireless Lab, is a Russian-based organization. Second, the company not only owns all of the content, but also logs cookies, IP addresses, browser information, etc. On top of that, I just don’t trust anything that can be used for facial recognition, son.

Keeping it a buck, this post isn’t really about Russia or any political hack-jobs. Side bar, I still don’t trust Russia as far as I can throw them, man. Given all of the fuckery they’ve pulled off in our election process, I wouldn’t put anything past them, fam. Anyway, the grander point is, where do we draw the line, man? Like, when will we stop giving all of these companies our data, bruh? Shit, Mark Zuckerberg alone probably knows more about us than we do. So, why are we giving additional apps our faces, son? I mean, maybe I’m paranoid, but we legitimately have no control over what they do with our likeness, brethren.

In the end, put the cotdamn phone down, son. Ultimately, The Man is listening to our phone calls, 23andMe has our DNA and FaceApp now has our faces. By and by, don’t be surprised when the powers that be start creating cyborgs that look like us and can mimic our conversations. Sound crazy? Well, we already gave these companies all of the data they need, man. James Cameron done already warned us about the T-1000, fam. That is all. LC out.

Mark Zuckerberg Invented Skynet

So, I won’t lie, son. I’m only halfway joking with the title of this post. On the real, Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook are flying really close to sun, man. I mean, artificial intelligence sounds good until Skynet has us all hiding underground. Ok, yes, that does sound far-fetched, but I don’t like the idea of AI developing its own language, fam. All in all, it doesn’t sound like Facebook has a proper handle on the situation.

Now, let me explain why “conspiracy theorist” LC is awake today. Apparently, an AI system being developed by Facebook created its own language. At first, researchers thought that the AI was speaking gibberish. This assertion continued until they realized that the different AI agents were able to understand this coded language. Basically, these muhfuckas gave up on English and were still able to talk to each other. To make matters worse, the same outcome has occurred in every scenario researchers have created.

Ok, let me get this straight, son. Scientists created the AI, programmed the agents to speak English and the agents said “fuck that.” Nah, fam, I ain’t comfortable with any of this shit, bruh. Before we know it, John Connor is going to have to send Arnold Schwarzenegger back in time to defeat the T-1000, man. Shit, all jokes aside, we’re setting a dangerous precedent if we’re creating technology that we can’t control. By and by, these inventions are supposed to help us, not have us on edge, fam.

In the end, maybe Elon Musk is right. Look, Zuckerberg is already a legend for everything he’s been able to accomplish this early in life. However; maybe he really doesn’t fully understand AI. All I know is, I’m not looking forward to a rising of the machines. Shit, people may be looking for a zombie apocalypse, but a robot apocalypse might really be around the corner, son. LC out.

P.S. I wholeheartedly believe James Cameron is from the future, son. I mean, he predicted all of this shit, man. Real talk, we all need to consult him going forward. Clearly, he’s the only one who can save us, fam. That is all.
