I came across this recently and thought it was a good read. There's apparently a new smartphone app called "MindLAMP". It constantly analyzes your behaviour, your movement, your phone usage, and everything to feed it back to your therapist. It also forces you to fill out constant questionnaires on your mood. If it sees that you're not sleeping or not exercising or don't get a good depression score, it can report that back to your therapist.
But more interestingly it takes other data too. mindLAMP periodically tests for social connection among patients by "using their phones’ microphones to periodically sample audio and identify the presence and qualities of speech that indicate social connection." So if you are not constantly socially interacting with people, the app will actually detect that nobody other than yourself speaks around you and feed that back to your therapist. GPS data is also checked to see if you regularly go outside or not. So if you're a shut in NEET, you can't hide that anymore. It will be reported that you never go outside or interact with anyone. It's not hard to imagine this technology in the future being used to identify potential incels/general social outcasts for imprisonment/committment.
Recent research at UCLA also created an app designed to detect depression from voice recordings. After the AI model was trained on a large dataset of people who called in and filled out mood questionnaires, the app could analyze voice samples to actually determine how depressed you are. The authors foresee forces people to regularly record audio samples in the app to establish their mood. If you do not feel happy, this will be reported.
Even better was an analysis tool created by the University of Washington. After "politely asking" (somehow they got informed consent from people who were locked up against their will) people who were involuntarily committed to a hospital/admitted for a suicide attempt for their internet search history, they found numerous search terms highly correlated with suicide. For example, they found that "final divorce decree cost" was one of the most correlated terms with attempted suicide. Psychiatrists in charge of the study proposed that people at risk of suicide have their internet search patterns monitored for terms like these and that certain search terms will be reported to your doctors as indicating a high risk of suicide in the near-future.
The main crux of this post is that this will be the future for all potential incels. You will be forced to install an app on your phone and computer. This app will constantly monitor your behaviour. It will look at whether you go outside. It will randomly record you at different intervals to see if you are talking to others and more importantly see if you're happy talking to others. It will look at your search and browsing history. If you are socially isolated, if you are physically isolated, if you are searching the wrong things or speaking in the wrong way it will know and it will be reported to your psychiatrist, who will involuntarily commit you as a danger to yourself and others if you are unable to fix your state of isolation. There will be no opportunity to hide for incels.
Gone are days past where you could slip off the grid to live a NEET life, forgotten by the government bureaucracy. For centuries that was the easiest way to escape the government. You could live as a hermit on your own. You could be free and since you weren't interacting with anyone, nobody would care or even notice that you're gone. But this won't be the future. In the future anyone who is going off the beaten path and leaves society will be reported and dealt with. There is no future for us where we are free. We will be identified with extreme prejudice and dealt with.
