They say:

You might think your anonymous online rants are oh-so-clever. But they'll give you away, too. A federally-funded artificial intelligence lab is figuring out how to track people over the Internet, based on how they write.
I think that's pretty stupid. From my point of view. But not from theirs...
AI can sometimes be wrong.

No matter how many good programmers they have to implement this project, there is always room for mistakes and those will finally lead to unwanted results.

Even doctors can't be sure on giving a good diagnostic in some cases, but an AI program will?? I find that hard to believe.

I guess this will list people as terrorists in a way like those no fly lists they are maintaining at present times, it will label numerous people as terrorists or potential dangers with the result that those people will experience all sorts of damage from being on such a list.

I think it's just another extention to the many other techniques already in place to silence political dissent and opposition from within the people against he policies from the powers-that-be. I also think it will label anyone who critisizes Israeli politics as a potential terrorist.

Not scalable, not useful. Waste of taxpayer money, IMHO.

I agree with this one hundred percent! There needs to be a system to find terrorists of any kind. Those who stalk us and fill our lives with stress. When we never bothered them in the first place!

Just because some idiot tells them lies about religion, doesn't make it right for any to follow.

Finding a Terrorist has nothing to do with religion, they use religion to justify in their minds to kill people.

Just do not use terminology like I am taking a bomb to the airport or I left my bomb in the parking deck.

Not saying those and you should be ok.


Cheers
