BBC News: Tech Tent: Can facial recognition fit with a fair society?

Tech Tent: Can facial recognition fit with a fair society? – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-44250952

I hear a lot of people complaining about facial recognition software.. it’s been in use here for many years now but only just starting to hit the media.

The ability for software to recognize has been around for a very long time.. remember back in the day when we used OCR .. yea .. well this is much the same thing really but more advanced.

Businesses have been using number plate recognition for a long time.. the reality is that it was never that big a jump to people. In advancing countries like China, cardless ATMs are trailed and popular .. using just your face and a mobile number.

Bio readers like finger print scanners have been around for decades, now commonplace on most recent mobile phones and other devices.

“Don’t worry, your personal data is secure” … Lol .. try googling your own name .. or even a picture of yourself and see what comes up.

We gave up out rights to privacy when we decided we wanted social media and instant communication, and we wanted it for free… honestly companies don’t give anything for free.. there’s always a catch.. like targeted marketing … think Facebook is free lol no no it’s not. It’s a giant data mining company making an income from advertising and using their mined data to do so.

So why are you so worried about facial recognition again ?

Forward marches the future. One we can not control.

So relax.. enjoy the ride… it’s free .. and don’t forget to smile.

BBC News: Syria air strikes: US still ‘locked and loaded’ for new chemical attacks

Syria air strikes: US still ‘locked and loaded’ for new chemical attacks – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-43771840

Dear America… save yourself. Get rid of that idiot in power before a country like Russia truly gets fed up and throws you some in return.

Within the global scope of things, your struggle for dominance will be your downfall. Look at history for great examples of that.

Make America grate again is what’s going on.

Have some self respect.

Get educated.

Can lab meat feed — and save — the world? | The Japan Times

https://www.japantimes.co.jp/opinion/2018/02/27/commentary/world-commentary/can-lab-meat-feed-save-world/

Well here’s some food for thought, something to chew over, talk about with people in a meeting, .. Oh ok enough with the painful puns lol

After what I saw in America last week, would be an advantage. Subscribe to my YouTube as I’ll be uploading my Vlogs in the next few days, there’s some footage and references in there ‘re meat farming and it’s end results.

For now though, let’s pretend that Neww Zealand is actually Clean and Green (even though we all know it’s not).

Good Saturday Morning

Well hello muffins… it’s Saturday the 23rd of almost that annoying day in December again …. meh.

The world has been somewhat interesting these last few months..

Bitcoin sores into orbit then comes crashing back down

Japan reports it’s lowest birthrate ever this year at just over 930,000 something

Some kpop singer takes his life and the world is shocked..

Social Media continues to turn once sensible people into walking morons

This generation are in for a shock when they realise they can’t live on the internet

And I’ve been abducted by two of the nicest Cosplayers ever..

Ok.. not really abducted.. but that did sound cool 😁 we have a shoot later today so am looking forward to that and testing my ability to remain sane and coherent in this weird heat.

Summer has come early.. no doubt going to be a hot one.

I’m off to L.A in Feb next year for a short but well needed holiday.. first holiday in about 3 years, so looking forward to that .. I’ve thought about this and .. excluding a week off over Xmas holidays (now) I’ve had 1 official day off this year.. only 5 days off in March 2016 and most of January 2015 off.

That’s not good.. not good at all when I look back and see the self inflicted damage that has done to my health and clarity of mind.

Speaking of clarity…

Go watch that – Team Purple..

Breakfast time then shoot prep.

Have a safe and happy holidays everyone. 😁
