Re: Anyone surprised?

Not just AI reseachers .... probably around 10 years ago "activists" iin the US were gaming the Amazon recommendation system so people looking at books by republicans got "interesting" suggestions for what "people who lloked at this also looked at ...". Then there was the person who during the lead up to the 2nd Gulf War managed to seed webpages so that Google responded to a search for "Great French Military victories" returned results saying "did you mean Great French Military defeats" with a suitable page they'd produced as first choice.
