Do Social Networks really censor Conservatives?

“I tell you, I have many, many millions of followers on Twitter and it’s different than it used to be,” Drumpf said. “Things are happening, names are taken off, people aren’t getting through. You’ve heard the same complaints. And it seems to be, if they’re conservative, if they’re Republicans, if they’re in a certain group, there’s discrimination and big discrimination. I see it absolutely on Twitter and Facebook, which I have also, and others I see.”

While it waits on the second suit, Prager University is actually outpacing left-leaning channels in searches for certain terms associated with the left. As of Tuesday, the channel was in the top three YouTube results for searches on “social justice,” “socialism,” “leftism,” and “leftist.” The resulting videos (“What is Social Justice?” “Capitalism vs. Socialism,” “The Left Ruins Everything,” and “

#BlackHole #algorithm #KatherineBouman
This 29-Year-Old Computer Scientist Helped Bring Us The First Image of a Black Hole
Katherine Bouman had a secret: An algorithm she'd developed had stitched together a picture of a black hole. She told nobody except her colleagues. Until today. That's when Event Horizon Telescope team, of which Bouman is a member, unveiled the first image of a black hole.
Bouman, 29, a postdoctoral researcher at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, had been working on such an algorithm for almost six years, since she was a graduate student at MIT.
She was one of about three dozen computer scientists who used algorithms to process data gathered by the Event Horizon Telescope project, a worldwide collaboration of astronomers, engineers and mathematicians... ... show more

Hey everyone, I’m a new #gplusrefugee just landing here. I was Boris Borcic there, but for the moment I’d like to try using the transition to change username/identity... unless it reveals easy to change username here without unwanted rippling. At the entry point, I listed the following hashtags as my interests #algorithm, #art, #artificialintelligence, #bias, #biology, #climatechange, #cognition, #english, #french, #gplus-fr, #gplusdiaspora, #humanrights, #linguistics, #mathematics, #physics, #politics, #programming, #python, #religion, #science, #switzerland, and #usa.

Thanks for the invite, @Garry Knight!

Alternative to Youtube and the Censorship Algorithm: https://www.brighteon.com/


Disclaimer: free speech is welcome on Brighteon much like on Diaspora. You have the power to choose what you want to watch, and what you don't. There is a reasonable set of community guidelines: https://legal.brighteon.com/CommunityGuidelines.html
You can set up your own video channel for free, and you will NOT be snuffed out by all-powerful algorithms. You grow your channel as you see fit. If you are banned and censored on Youtube, there is an opportunity for you here.
One more thing: on the surface there are many political videos on Brighteon. If you like those, good. If you don't, there are many more non-political videos about natural health, religion, self defense, etc. Find what you like.
I am not sponsored or paid to say this 😀

Machine learning is growing ever more sophisticated, thanks to algorithms which pit two artificial intelligences against each other. These algorithms, known as generative adversarial networks (GANs), have already been used to create art, crack encryption codes, and produce uncannily real pictures of faces and animals.

Wikipedia is a valuable resource. But it’s not always obvious how to collate the content on any given topic into a coherent whole.
