Lucky for the Turkish government there are no other ways to send documents over the internet. If only there was a way anyone could publish a document and have it visible by anyone with some sort of a document browser. If they could be linked together it would form sort of a web. That'd be awesome!

If this is something you worry about (I do too) I sincerely hope you don't use Android or other Google products. Unlike Google, Apple has no incentive to collect and mine your personal information. They make money off hardware, not profiling you and selling your eyeballs to, literally, the highest bidder. Even the advertising identifier, which you can reset, is an attempt to reign in user tracking. Apple Pay generates a unique ID for each transaction rather than handing your information over to the store. Spotlight search hashes app information and stores it locally. They actually go out of their way to protect privacy, unlike many other businesses I can think of.

Ok, granted. I was being a bit facetious there though - point being that if this AI can be applied on an individual level maybe the bar (as it were) can be raised in terms of qualifying potential suits. I doubt you get an exhaustive analysis of your facts vs. all of case law in a short, cheap session.

I don't disagree, just guessing here, but if the algorithm has access to a lot of case law maybe it can find something quickly that would cost a lawyer a lot of billable hours. If true I wonder if it could end up being better for individuals as they are the ones who won't have a chance without access to large amounts of money.
