    Google Glasses - Facial Recognition

    Just when you thought it might have to stop somewhere. Like always, appeal to the twats and sheep about how this will "help" them.

    MOUNTAIN VIEW (KPIX 5) – By now, you have probably heard about the Google Glass wearable computer. Soon, a Mountain View startup will begin selling 3-D eyewear with technology so sophisticated, it could help crime fighters stop crime before it happens.

    It’s not a new concept. The 2002 Hollywood film “Minority Report” gave us a look into the future when actor Tom Cruise catches and arrests a criminal before he commits the crime.

    Allen Yang is a University of California at Berkeley researcher and founder of Atheer, the startup developing the glasses.

    The 3-D glasses are a wearable computer where users are wirelessly immersed in their own computer through virtual images.

    “…And it’s streaming live from the internet to your glasses,” said Theo Goguely, senior product manager at Atheer.

    The glasses will ultimately be used by business for work or for regular users for entertainment.

    One could put on their glasses and instantly see a 3-D screen with a daytime calendar with a list of things to do. The smart glasses can assist users looking at their kitchen cupboard and they will help visualize nutritional needs.

    One of its goals is for use by law enforcement. For example, police wearing the glasses could scan a crowd and possibly locate a suspect or a lost child.

    This technology could have helped police find the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing sooner. Although police had images of the suspects, it took investigators days to identify them. Current facial recognition programs were limited in identifying the low resolution images of the suspects from surveillance cameras.

    But Yang said Atheer has developed a better mousetrap. Even if 60 percent of the image is corrupted, Yang said his company’s technology can convert it to an identifiable image.

    Yang said the program will be available within two or three years and could help police identify known suspects before they commit another crime.

    “In the optimal scenario, they can actually get an alert when they’re patrolling on the streets and they can prevent something from happening before even the event happens,” said Yang.

    In addition, the program can be used on surveillance cameras on bridges, roads or buildings to help find missing or kidnapped people.

    The 3-D glasses will available next month. The cost: $350 for a model that connects to smart phones and $850 for the standalone version.

    All of the programs are still in the early stages of development.

    This is such bullshit. They had the city under martial law lockdown with militarized forces on every street, and some random guy found the suspects, not the cops. All of their security, their cameras, their gear, everything was worthless. If anything, it's proof that we need to stop spending so much taxpayer dollars on cops playing special forces.

    Anybody remember the Riddler in Batman Forever with his TV direct to brain machine? Worked out pretty well for Gotham, we should totally try this.

    And Minority Report... no corruption with future crime prevention... nope.

    Google glasses made to identify criminals before they commit a crime programming:

    Civilian: Female, no threat

    Suspect Convicted: Male, target with extreme prejudice

    Why do we need Google glasses to identify males versus females, you ask?

    Um, because, well, go outside. Take a look at the average female today as compared to 20 years ago. Then ask yourself if it's getting any easier to differentia- aw fuck it. THEY'RE MEN. 90% of women are indistinguishable visually from men until you get within range of being choked by the entitlement they effervesce with the poofs of Cheeto dust that waft about them with every step.
