Amazon.com is getting in to AI, which sounds like the worst idea ever
Last week, Congress held hearings on how to regulate emerging AI technology. Now, according to media reports, Amazon.com is getting on the AI bandwagon.
Amazon.com Inc. plans to bring ChatGPT-style search support to its web store. This was revealed, per Bloomberg, by a job listing seeking a senior software development engineer, which says the company is “reimagining Amazon Search with an interactive conversational experience” designed to give user personalized suggestions. The release date for this functionality is unknown.
Given what we know about how Amazon conducts business – specifically, assisting in causing individuals to die by suicide through the deceptive business practices and dangerous marketing of a deadly chemical – this is a concerning evolution.
Per C. A. Goldberg, PLLC’s lawsuits on behalf of the grieving families of young people whose death was facilitated by Amazon, the tech giant – which is worth around 1.2 trillion – has previous deployed their market-leading technology to assemble suicide kits and peddle them to teens. Imagine if this sort of scandalous recklessness was accelerated by AI.
“This is a case about the most powerful, wealthy, and trusted corporation in America knowingly assisting in the deaths of healthy children by selling them suicide kits.” C. A. Goldberg, PLLC complaint.
Amazon extended condolences to families of the dead, and in the same breath continued to defend Amazon’s practices and sales of the chemicals – only to watch hoards more people die. “They know it’s killing people,” our client Ruth Scott said in an interview with the NY Times. “They are fully aware. They just don’t care.”
