It's Amazon's daily recommendations that convinces me machine learning combined with detailed info about me isn't _too_ dangerous yet. Today's recommendation was a 100 pack of automobile fuses. They regularly offer me parts specific to vehicles I have never owned (and I've told them what models I own). I bought one thing related to a car (but not a repair part) six months ago.
@CarlCravens Clearly when people buy a wing-brake the algo has noticed they subsequently need repair parts for vehicles they don't even own.
