In this Discourse, Tom Scott talks about science communication in the age of social media, how to be popular on the internet, and dealing with a world where view counts are often more important than truth.
Watch the Q&A: nonet.info/glo/video/j3mrZKymgLKp2qk
Tom Scott is a British entertainer, educator, NOnetr, web developer and former presenter of 'Gadget Geeks' on Sky One. He graduated from the University of York with a degree in linguistics. He has a popular NOnet channel with over 1.6 million subscribers and more than 325 million video views as of June 2019.
In more than fifteen years of publishing on the internet, Tom has visited the High Arctic, passed out in a centrifuge, and somehow got three million people to watch a video about why the British plug is a great invention.
This talk and Q&A was filmed in the Ri on 27 September 2019.

      The problem Scott is when a conspiracy theory becomes a conspiracy fact. The problem is when authoritative voices become the tyrant. In the age of spin, determining the truth, finding the algorithm really is the process of exercising human judgment, human evaluation. We need to think about what is right or wrong. The algorithm can not do that and that is why it may fail. Because demanding something binary to not be binary is a contradiction.

    Just an update from 2021, I watched Tom's newest video about Lego Beach, NOnet then played Tom's video about AI coming up with titles for NOnetrs, then this played. Apparently the Algorithm is still on the trend of upping the anty each video. Never noticed until just now. Little does the algorithm know, it played itself.

    If there are no algorithm for truth, then you yourself can never know the truth, and because clearly you know some truths, your statement is therefore false, because there are certaintly specific algorithms used to find the truth, we simply just aren't or haven't implemented all of the ones we use in our brains in computers. It's only obvious why computers and humans endup with different ways of telling the truth, because computers are physically different to the human brain, and so they have different advantages and disadvantages. You are an algorithm. You are a brain in a meat suit, which makes you an algorithm. Your decisions are flawed because they are based on the structures found in your brain. Your decisions are flawed for similar reasons that the algorithms on NOnet are flawed.

    What about intentional censorship? Like calling NATO's proxy wars in Libya & Syria _civil wars,_ the OPCW scandal, or pretending that because there are so many loony 911 conspiracy claims, that there isn't also a legitimate of evidence, and censoring the lot as if it were all the same? I find that much more disturbing than inadvertent problems arising from good intentions, which can then be adjusted.

    Flu vaccinations (before 2020) were by definition "homeopathic"... You take flu viruses, break them down, inject them into someone and their immune system does the rest... Homeopathy is a "hair of the dog" solution. As much as I like Tom Scott, this is just a very bad and very biased example of "authority" over truth. That's my beef, otherwise a good talk!

    Imagine if people had a rating system that indicated their mindset from their content, of course weighted for current, people learn all the time. That way people could moderate and control what content they want and who they want to see or not that way, instead of case by case chore. Bigger issues are real issues get rail-roaded and subverted to the extent that those issue do not get looked at carefully. That and many love to focus upon the 1% be that worst cases or best cases and projecting that upon a whole demographic, or other categorisation of pigeon-holing people. But then that is what the news does, focuses on edge cases one side or another and enable such divides. But yes - echo chambers are dangerous, which is why no-platforming don't work well. Missing out an opportunity to fail allow them to speak and ridicule and heckle - those are democratic rights and to be denied that with no-platforming just enables those removed from public recourse and drives them into cult echo chambers that is akin to sweeping a problem under the carpet and ignoring that such problems isolated will just grow. That in itself really don't help. However - nothing is perfect. Take comfort in that. Just a slow process to get towards something good.

    2 things: (I'm using that a lot these days...will it ever get to 3?) 1) if the prime motivation in life is monetary profit, then agglomeration is inevitable. those who have a lot of money, want more. It is what, we have been taught, makes life "better". 2) in the very earliest days of mass communication, newspapers, apocryphally the English civil war, the printers could say what ever they liked and not care in the slightest about being "fact checked". The concept of a standard of truthfulness was as yet, not conceived of, and wouldn't be for a good two hundred years, for the simple reason that reading was not as widespread as it would become. Such a standard was grudgingly accepted, only by the mass circulation papers (some of whom still continue to push the boundaries in the name of "free speech"). The same was true of radio, but the advent of the standards was a little swifter in coming about, primarily because people understand their spoken language, a great deal more than they read it. Television, as the child of motion pictures was born with an inbuilt code of self-policing practices. In its journalistic aspects. If you call it entertainment, the field is wide open (here's looking at you, fauxnews). The internet is still quite new and if it continues to exist, it will face increasing calls for minimum standards, and it will have to accept them or be doomed by the majority to oblivion, as happened to the newspapers, radio stations, television networks, and need I say...oh what was the apple alternative to fb that failed so dismally?

    And yet here I am being directed here (after watching ordinary things and rising). As a consumer who believes God and/or aliens isn't impossible, who's fault is it neither side has fully convinced me? Ps nice thing about God is I'm not out anything if I'm wrong lol (and just maybe there's something to being "holy"). Is it really so hard to make recommendations non-secular? I'm gonna hypothesize many NOnet consumers are here because their quest for information wasn't being satisfied by the mainstream (I love the quantity on NOnet, Ive watched a ton from this channel looking into whether a "EM gravity wave disruption" was possible... Ftr Im still left unsure whether these quantum fields can interact in a meaningful way to an engineer haha). Is magellan radicalizing?

    Radicalisation isn't inherently bad; more 'radical' left-wing (breadtube) connect on NOnet is generally well sourced, well put together, accurate, and honest, especially compared to right wing content on NOnet. And the comment about getting 'apoplecticly angry of billionaires' isn't quite fair; while I imagine that content exists, almost everyone in that general niche criticizes systems, more so than individuals, and go in for heavy sourcing and research rather than fear mongering and hate.

    It's obvious that Twitch is set up to promote parasocial relationships because it's very profitable, but this doesn't mean that all streamers are selling friendships. I've never donated to a streamer before, and have barely used the chat feature, yet I have watched streamers because the content they make (commentary, comedy, etc.) is entertaining. If I ever were to donate to a streamer it would be to support the creation of the content that I enjoy, and not because I believe that we have a friendship. Of course, some people do believe that, but the video seems to present it like it's *all* of Twitch.

    Fear of misinformation, race supremacy, conspiracy theory, and illogical argument keeps coming up in this speech. I will never understand why society fears idiocy more than it does corporate greed. I am much more comfortable with the known evil than the unknown evil. Stifling and censoring hatred has not worked up until now and it will continue to not work - what we should pay attention to is multinationals like Google and Facebook having more power to censor than governments. Yet all attentions is paid to the imaginary Nazis under your bed, and none to the mad men who harvest your mind for billions of $. Go figure.

Now after having watched your presentation, I finally have a word for this "weird selling of friendship": Parasocial relationship. Or perhaps simply Parasitic relationship.

    I would bet alot of money that an algorithm for falsehood could be created relatively easily. Determining the absolute falsehood of something is a fairly easy process, as all you have to do is to test if the statement violates one of the criteria for truth such as internal consistency for example.

    • Some Guy

      @Simon WoodburyForget I think you entirely misunderstood the point. Truth obviously exists, by how to you warranty that some unknown information doesn't exists which ends up showing that you weren't correct. For example; Newtonian physics is technically not true. Calculations with newtonian physics only starts producing margin of error greater that human measurement errors once one goes far larger or smaller than the human scale. However, proving something false is much easier to do definitively since there are certain objective criteria that true statements cannot violate. Does that help?

    • Simon WoodburyForget

      @Some Guy This is pointless philosophy. You might aswell be claiming that you live in the matrix. If truth didn't exist, then computers would not be able to function, because you would never be able to determine whether a value is true or false. Work out of a definition that actually applies to the laws of physics, and then get back to me. The rule about plot holes are entirely on point. A good author writes less plot holes than a bad author. This is how arguments can be made to work against false claims, and that only a good debator (and not someone who has the truth) is capable of proving your claim to be true or false. This is about the human brain, and not philosophy.

      @Simon WoodburyForget you cannot point out any self contradictory statement or series of statements that are true. It is by definition impossible. What you said about plot holes makes no sense and isn't relevant.

    • Simon WoodburyForget

      Internal inconsistency doen't make a thing false, and there is essentially no way of ensuring a thing is internally consistent, because a plot hole may always be part of common knowledge, or just sitting in the authors brain, so essentially what you endup with now is just filtering out bad writing, as opposed to filtering out untruth. NOnet videos aren't philosophical arguments and so even the logically valid ones only partially add up together once you spent literally months going through them day by day.

    Artificial Intelligence isn't Intelligent...who knew...🤷‍♂️😁😁😁 some sciences are hard sciences...experimentally reproducible and produce results...physics, chemistry, and biology...the problems are found in the so called "soft sciences" psychology and ecology and medicine. These fields rely on observation and correlation and are way too open to interpretation...using the word "truth" is a problem in these fields...especially with the reproducibility crisis. They end up becoming moral and political questions. So an algorithm for "truth?" Whose ? Perhaps the better question is "Can we design an algorithm for provable facts?"

    Alot of misinformation about google and their algorithms... they are not fair or trying to be. They have an insane political agenda and they are forcing it onto people. And systems that favour left winged politics this has been well known for around 10 years and is getting worse by the day.

    55:10 pedos are so rampant on the site as a whole that it’s a meme among the community. There are some nice servers though, for comics or music etc

    On the parasocial relationship, it’s not exactly thinking someone’s your close and personal friend but it’s not so distant that it’s like enjoying a well written made up character in a book. I’d say it’s getting to learn about a real person and their life with the depth of a close friend /omnipotence. Attention from the person isn’t necessary for the fun of it, but are an additional treat. Even though I’ll never meet Michael Reeves, I’m still into his content and interested in his life. However, being noticed in a comment or signed merch or meet and greets are still pretty cool

    All the recommended videos for me after this video are Royal Institution, Douglas Murray, Debating, Philosophy and Time conundrums. What even is that to say about me? I didn’t know where I was going when I started this journey, but I am going to throw off the shackles and listen to what I thought about with my last aside. Thank you and good night.

    The teenage heartthrob duo of “The two Coreys” consisted of Corey Feldman and the late Corey Haim... Not Corey Hart, as Tom suggests. Corey Haim, and Corey Hart are both Canadian celebrities whose stars faded long ago. Corey Haim’s celebrity should prove to be slightly more enduring, due to his early death, and his short, but controversial acting career. Adversely, Corey Hart’s celebrity is dependent upon the short period he spent as an 80s new-wave recording artist. Hart’s biggest hit and only real claim-to-fame was his 1983 single “(I Wear My) Sunglasses at Night”.
