There’s also a thing or two about the photo recognition I was involved with last year, now that nda’s are irrelevant, what with companies being closed down and what have you. I do a lot od work for Facebook but in a different capacity. This might get me in trouble with them but it’s OK. I feel like telling.
The short of it is that you could program an algorithm to find a articular signature which appeared in many of the photo I was uploading last summer. It;s very obvious but you might not know its there if you didn’t suspect its there. If you know what I mean.
I was blown away bu a few of the results it had tracking me. A few things did;’t make sense, how the algo knew where I was because of the picture alone. Then put earlier pic and later pic and confirm. I was surprised, but then I think there was a lot more access to data than meets the eye. It got me constantly – with a little help.
This year when I got on a flight it triggered a 99.8+ or more percent of a certainly for mu location. I’d forgotten about it and hadn’t had a high certainty for months so no notification.
Any case, I suspect certain firms who were in on the test actually using the results. Actually leveraging the data for their own ends
I’m quite sure, their results could not have been had according to my counter tracker who was tracking my trackers. Always. There’s always a counter.
I have to tell you about the time someone like the FBI shut me down for three days. That time there was no counter and I didn’t see it coming. or maybe I did and just wanted them to bring it on.
It was a private contractor for them. I got a location of the building ther were in. I looked at it in Googlre maps I looked and knew someone behind the shadowy windows was after me.
