Stalin is relevant for recognizing the worth of data mining for extracting efficient intelligence.
Richard Stallman keeps away from smartphone, calling it the portable tracking device and blaming it as Stalin’s dream come true. Julian Assange called entire internet age as what Stalin would have admired. So Stalin is at the receiving end of all the blame of internet age and its smartphone stage. But what for and why?
In Stalin’s regime any uncomfortable facts were not just wiped out from photographs but from the planet earth and edited out of history as well. Yes there was Stalin before the Photoshop who did more than that but that is not all indeed keeping him still relevant through all the progress of internet age of humanity that is even making the most of politics also irrelevant.
Stalin is relevant for recognizing the worth of data mining for extracting efficient intelligence. That is why he is getting increasingly relevant through the smartphone stage of internet age for data retention.
Data retention is the Stalinist feature of smartphone stage of internet age. Machine learning is further implementing this.
