HBO dropped a trailer for the upcoming season on Tuesday, and well, it'd certainly appear the rivalries are staying the same.

When we talk about the dangers posed by artificial intelligence, the emphasis is usually on the unintended side effects. We worry that we might accidentally create a super-intelligent AI and forget to program it with a conscience; or that we’ll deploy criminal sentencing algorithms that have soaked up the racist biases of their training data. But this is just half the story. What about the people who actively want to use AI for immoral, criminal, or malicious purposes? Aren’t they more...

Reality shows, on the whole, have never been particularly ethical endeavors. From beauty pageants where women got plastic surgery makeovers to substance abuse intervention shows that allowed participants to drive under the influence of drugs and alcohol, their interest has always been less in exploring the human condition and more in producing the most outlandish, desperate, and provocative behavior possible for the entertainment of the audience.

Unfortunately, often those moments are disrupted when I accidentally enter a...
