    So, researchers have set AI onto satellite images to serve as a proxy for household surveys to try and identify poverty:
    “The use of this AI technology could help, for example, in developing countries where there has been a rapid change of land use. The AI could monitor via satellite and potentially spot areas that are in need of aid. This would be much quicker than relying on ground surveys.”

    A book we reviewed recently, ‘Half Earth Socialism’ talked about computer assisted planning as something more akin to meteorology, rather than an eng9ineering project: so could AI draw in incidental web data and help us plan the world to alleviate poverty.

    Of course, an planning is a second order part of socialism, the important part is putting our lives under our own human control, but AI assisting humans to sift masses data could create more control (perversely).
