B.o.B thinks Snapchat is developing Facial Recognition

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

The (not so much anymore) famous rapper B.o.B, who also went toe-to-toe with Neil DeGrasse Tyson in early 2016 tweeted out how Snapchat is just developing Facial Recognition as a database perhaps for the government. 

He's not very credible after going on a rant about how the earth is flat, but it definitely makes you think.

Wait B.o.B said the Earth is flat? Link pls. I never know whether to laugh or cry whenever an artist I like reveals themselves to be a dolt.

Ex Machina incoming.

With their database they sure could do such thing. Wooow and all dem selfies.

I used to like B.o.B as a person but he really showed a strange behavior in the past. Still liking the old songs though.

Fanboys, on both sides, are quite embarrassing. How can one be a "fan" of a company? A companies only goal is to make a profit off you. Instead of being a smart consumer and base your purchase decision on the best price / performance you choose to dick yourself over by only considering brand X. Idiotic loss to be honest.

like FaceBook hasn't been doing that for years now, they even ask you to tag your friends on all the photos - it's like they're building a supervised deep learning neural network

Yep. Just like the categories "close friends" etc. to sort your friendlist.

friendlist is just a codename for "circle of connections and interests" that is used for social engineering

It's not just rappers, it's can be anyone of any profession. Ben Carson is a world renowed neurosurgeon, but he thinks archaeologists are lying to us and the pyramids were actually used as storage for grain instead of burying Pharaohs.

seriously, it's all the fame that goes to their heads making them believe they can say things and it becomes real.

While I doubt that is the intention, it could potentially be used similar to how the Russian app that searches the Russian facebook to match a picture to a profile.  Which people are of course using to find and harass people, mostly the Russian 2chan folks finding and outing pornstars.

 

Although, I wouldn't honestly be surprised if the government was helping snapchat succeed.  The FBI was a major investor in Facebook when it looked like it would become popular.  So while I don't think the gov't would create snapchat, I do think they would likely help and support facebook/snapchat/twitter like sites and services simply due to the sheer ease of data gathering. And if they are a financial backer, they can steer the company to be more gov't friendly.

What about a Christian paleontologist? 


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

People just do this to get their name in the news. I hope, at least. I don't want people to be that stupid.
