That which is technically feasible and cheap to do, will be done...

...thus it is logical to assume that a significant portion of all media delivered via screens today (video, image, audio, text) is fully generated by machines, using weaponized secretive "deep fakes" systems with capabilities that are 10+  years beyond the current public imagination. Further, given how ubiquitous and cheap total surveillance has become, it is logical to assume such systems are on a trajectory to becoming "closed loop" and semi-autonomous, to be able to generate and deliver custom versions of "reality" for targeted audiences at scale, that continuously evolve based on individuals measured reactions to "behavioral micro-nudging" delivered through generated media. "The Show Must Go On" or "Unplug & Visit Nature", which is it for you?
