I wasn't speaking about the code it suggests. I was speaking about the people who wrote the code that runs when you ask a question. It is the code that creates the searches that find the definitions of things and using pre-coded logic formulates an answer.My comment wasn't so much geared to programming
My comment wasn't so much geared to programming or any specific domain. It is more of where AI and its usage will be positioned in the next few years.
In one sense it is the ability to have a private mentor, and all of your lifelong memory and learning with 100% recall tempered by your point of view. In another sense it is inexorable, repeated miscommunication (purposely falsified info) of any and every potential subject( advertising, finance, economics, politics, religion, health....).
Think about how Google, et al control information. Then consider that the primary source of information starts with Google. So, not only do the authors of the code have a Socialist leaning, all conservative views are hidden as deeply as possible. It's not like Google deletes the stuff you are not allowed to see, it is that Google buries it so far down the list that you never actually find it.It's the available input I worry about.

It's not totally the fault of the search engines although they tag all sites so that they know their political leaning (I'm sure this forum is seriously affecting this forum's social ranking negatively), it is also the use of confirmation bias. The more you click on stories or "like" anything, the more you are fed "similar" stories or stories with a similar bent. Click on one negative Trump headline and you'll never see a positive one again. Because of the coronation, I'm being inundated with British Royals stories because I clicked on a few to see photos and videos of the event.
I can't even have a "news" feed because I can't find one that will give me actual news of the world. I can get political "news" or Royals "news" but there is no such thing as balanced news like you used to get on TV at 6 and 11 or in the NYT or Hartford Current or WSJ. The WSJ was my last news paper but i can't even read it any more. Every article is now opinion. I don't care what the writer's Opinion is. I want the NEWS. Who, what, where, when, sometimes why but that usually comes much later. I don't want to read a "news" article filled with purple words and innuendo leaving me no doubt as to how the writer "feels" about the subject.
