DeepLens AI Camera for developers

Recommended Posts

Hi,
I came across this gadget and I think it's really innovative

It comes with already build in pre-trained models and with
these models developers can build their own applications
not only for recognizing faces but a wide array of house hold
and every day objects.

I will never understand why people are happy to buy and deploy things like this spying on them. We are living in crazy times when some of us even pay for such things. After Spectre and Meltdown, Intel Management Engine a backdoor and things like that it is just ignorant to assume that such a thing can be "secure". Just hook it up to your wifi router and you'll never know what the future will hold.

skynet ?  😳

  I don't think amazon and intel will take the risk for hiding any backdoors or telemetry. It will be discovered sooner or later.

Just one seemingly unrelated global company comes to my mind: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_emissions_scandal They "did take the risk"...

Also, car makers put AI into cars without taking security seriously: https://www.wired.com/2015/07/hackers-remotely-kill-jeep-highway/

A few months ago Apple developers forgot to remove the "empty password" root login from the system, releasing it to the public.

Should I try to come up with more examples of how careless we can be? Even "big companies". Size does not matter in this case.
