"If bad messaging is a cardinal reason why Black Lives Matter isn’t the next evolution of the civil rights movement, then there’s no way the anti-vaccination movement could ever be.

"AI perception management campaigns like Watson, Alexa, Apple, Google, etc. distract us from understanding the true state of the technology.
