What China calls ?social credit?, the US calls ?risk assessment?

A viral video of an announcement on a Chinese high-speed train and a series of reports (here and here) on NPR have prompted a surge of interest this week in China?s ?social credit? system:

    Dear passengers: People who travel without a ticket, behave disorderly, or smoke in public areas will be punished according to regulations, and the behavior will be recorded in individual credit information system. To avoid a negative record of personal credit, please follow the relevant regulations and help with the orders on the train and at the station.

Despite unwarranted comparisons to US financial credit scores, ?social credit? scoring in China is used by the government and para-statal entities, not just private companies, and not just for financial decision-making.

One of the NPR stories as well as a report last month by the Australian Broadcasting Co. include interviews with people who discovered they were barred by the Chinese government from travel on high-speed trains as a result of ?social credit? scores, regardless of their ability to pay for tickets.

Dystopian? Yes.

Unjust? Yes?

?It can?t happen here?? No.

It already happens here, every day, to everyone who travels by airline or engages in bank or credit card transactions.

You may not realize it until you are mysteriously unable to obtain a boarding pass or complete a financial transaction, but each of these activities is already subject to secret, permission-based, extrajudicial prior restraint by the US government.

The default is ?no?.  Since a little over 10 years ago, US Federal regulations have forbidden any airline from issuing a boarding pass unless and until it has sent the would-be traveler?s itinerary and identifying information to the DHS and has received back an individualized, per-passenger, per-flight, permission-to-travel message from the DHS. The DHS generates a secret ?risk score? for each passenger, which determines how closely they are searched and questioned, whether the airline is instructed to call the police when they try to check in, and other aspects of how they are treated.

Even before airlines or banks get to the point of consulting the government, ?carrier sanctions? and similar sanctions against financial institutions give them a financial incentive to err on the side of saying ?no?, not ?yes?.
...

What China calls ?social credit scoring?, the US calls ?risk-based screening?.

Government blacklists and real-time pre-crime policing are being applied to control a growing range of activities of daily life. But air travel and financial transactions are the areas where the US government already has a fully deployed and operational real-time ?social credit? system in which private service providers are seamlessly integrated with government agencies to surveil and control our everyday activities.

The question isn?t whether the US should have a ?social credit? system ? it already does ? but whether it should be expanded to more aspects of our lives, or rolled back.

If you're one of the millions of people who own a device with Amazon Alexa, the company's mobile spying device helpful personal assistant, whatever you say may be recorded - especially if someone in the house is named Alexis, Alex, or Lexi.

According to Amazon's Alexa terms of use, the company collects and stores most of what you say to Alexa - including the geolocation of the product along with your voice instructions, reports CNBC's Todd Haselton.

Conservative Activist Laura Loomer Banned From Twitter After Criticizing Congresswoman-Elect Ilhan Omar
22 Nov 2018

Independent journalist Laura Loomer was banned from Twitter on Wednesday, following a tweet in which she accused Congresswoman-Elect Ilhan Omar of supporting Sharia law and female genital mutilation.

Loomer, who had amassed more than 260,000 followers on the Twitter, said that the social media platform had permanently suspended her account, informing her that she had violated Twitter?s rules against ?hateful conduct.?
...
?Isn?t it ironic how the twitter moment used to celebrate ?women, LGBTQ, and minorities? is a picture of Ilhan Omar?? began Loomer in her tweet, ?Ilhan is pro Sharia Ilhan is pro- FGM Under Sharia, homosexuals are oppressed & killed. Women are abused & forced to wear the hijab. Ilhan is anti Jewish.?

This wasn?t Loomer?s first incident with Twitter. In November 2017, the platform removed Loomer?s blue verification badge amid the removal of badges belonging to several other accounts deemed overtly offensive by Twitter.

Last month, Twitter had also suspended Loomer?s account for six days. It was not made clear as to what specifically prompted the temporary suspension, as Loomer stated that she was never given an explanation.

On Thursday, Facebook followed suit by suspending Loomer?s account features on its platform as well, according to Campbell.

EXCLUSIVE: Google Employees Debated Burying Conservative Media In Search Results
11/29/2018


    Google employees debated whether to bury The Daily Caller and other conservative media outlets in search results as a response to President Donald Trump?s election
    ?Let?s make sure that we reverse things in four years,? one engineer wrote in a thread that included a Google vice president
    Google employees similarly sought to manipulate search results to combat Trump?s travel ban

Google employees debated whether to bury conservative media outlets in search results as a response to President Donald Trump?s election in 2016, internal Google communications obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation reveal.

The Daily Caller and Breitbart were specifically singled out as outlets to potentially bury in search results, the communications reveal.

Trump?s election in 2016 shocked many Google employees, who had been counting on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to win.

'F--- you leakers': A former senior Google employee says a frantic quest to stop internal info getting out is now management's 'number one priority'
Kieran Corcoran
Dec 8, 2018, 04.11 PM

    Jack Poulson, who quit Google in September over its search project in China, spoke about the company's culture of secrecy.
    He said managers are more concerned with stopping leaks than anything else.
    Poulson cited an engineer yelling "f--- you leakers" at an all-hands meeting as an example of the attitude to leaking.
    Court documents and concerned employees have previously given a picture of the extreme lengths to which Google goes to protect its secrets.

A senior former Google employee who quit over its controversial plans to launch a search engine in China painted a picture of a company whose upper echelons are obsessed with stopping leaks, to the exclusion of almost anything else.

Jack Poulson, a former researcher at the company, said that senior managers consider the prevention of leaks to be their "number one priority."
