It was a good fight. But the algorithms powering Amazon on Prime Day were superior. It won, the war is over, and privacy is dead. Nobody seems concerned.
It was with much anticipation that I was looking to snag some deals on the much-hyped Amazon Prime Day. Not because I am a shopaholic—but because I thought this as good a day as any to test a hypothesis I’ve clung on to in my head. That if thought it through right, I could beat the Artificial Intelligence (AI) embedded into the black box that are Amazon’s algorithms.
