Everything in the future is set to be “smart”; that is, it will be filled with technology, connected to the Internet of Things, and constantly making data.
Now, we’re about to see a smart oven that comes complete with an image recognition camera.
Forbes reports that, “The June oven will not only recognize what you put into the oven – say cookies or muffins – but also know how many you are putting in and automatically calculate the correct cook time and temperature.”
Wow. The technology will be so smart we will barely have to do anything except stuff the food in the oven and walk off.
Ain’t all this smart technology just great? Now the NSA can monitor and illegally steal data from our ovens, too!
Quick question though: is this really necessary?
Aside from taking food selfies or capturing time-lapse of our meatloaf baking, are we really just going off the technological deep end here when everything in our houses is collecting image recognition data including of our food?
Are we set to live in a time where computers are so omnipresent in every single aspect of our daily lives that people forget even basic skills like how to cook without a computer?
(And that’s notwithstanding the legal debates over what happens when the image recognition camera recognizes that someone is baking pot brownies… uh oh…)
