The second, related ethical problem of predicting human behavior is that by treating people as things, we create self-fulfilling prophecies. Predictions are rarely neutral. Most often, the act of prediction interferes with reality, which he seeks to simply observe. For example, when Facebook predicts that a post will go viral, it maximizes its audience, and now it goes viral. Or let's go back to the example with the algorithm that determines that you are unlikely to be a good employee. Your inability to get a job may be explained not by the accuracy of the algorithm, but by the fact that the algorithm itself recommends companies not to hire you, and companies listen to its advice. Getting blacklisted by the algorithm can seriously limit your opportunities in life.
