The agency Red Pepper Land , based in Nashville, created a system capable of automatically recording usiarios Facebook pages of different companies: bars, restaurants and similar places. As if it were a gadget designed by consultants spies, the device knows how to detect faces seen in Facebook profiles. Everything works using a camera called Facedeals, which operates from an application (with permission of the usiarios). Yes, the idea sounds a bit invasive.
What makes the little camera how concerned to locate the face of users and register them immediately in the pages of bars and restaurants ? I wondered the same thing. It is assumed that, first, people must verify your identity in the application, as well as the labels of their most recent pictures. Thus, the system becomes an idea of the physical appearance of the subjects and then linked to certain establishments. The cameras are installed in various businesses and are experts in face recognition. Obviously, the owners of the companies have to give them high, set your location to be recognized, recorded according to the Facebook system. Simultaneously, based on the likes giving people, the system sends personalized promotions directly to their smartphones.
What do you think? Is it an invasion of privacy? Yes it's a little scary, but we must also recognize that people decide to just get into the dynamic, no one gets gun in front to say yes or no, so that everyone gets what they want (as if that meant some kind of comfort).
For now, this new system is in testing stage in Nashville. Knowing the human species and its evolution from the social networks do not doubt that the concept prosper and become a negociazo.
