"I agree with Yuval Harari and Tristan Harris, that for the first time in history 'know thyself' is no longer a luxury - it's a full-out competition. Ai and the algorithms they work hand in hand with want to know your whereabouts your interests your aim and your abilities better than you do because then they can recommend your next purchase your next move your next relationship your next movie whatever it is.
"And those that can predict better than you win the game. It's a full-out competition to know thyself.
