Business Insider has just published a story in which the author used AI to analyze tweets by Trump, Biden & Sanders for anger, negativity and passive aggression. Substituting AI assessments for human judgments is a trend fraught with danger. Why? Because it surrenders human agency.

It simply cuts us out of the picture and that’s a Pandora’s box we definitely don’t want to open. #AI
