Google Clips Automatically Identifies Everyone Including Your Pets (Updated)

By MassPrivateI

Are you looking forward to the holiday season?

Do you want the latest in corporate advertised surveillance?

Then hurry up and be the first one in your family to purchase a $249.00 Google Clips camera that automatically identifies you and your pets.

Clips automatically chooses which moments to capture and keep, so you don’t need to be behind the camera. (Source)

Because nothing says Big Brother like a camera that automatically identifies everyone it takes pictures of.

Google uses facial recognition to spy on you and your pets

The Google store warns that Clips can recognize familiar faces and pets…

Google Clips is smart enough to recognize great expressions, lighting and framing. So the camera captures beautiful, spontaneous images. And it gets smarter over time. Google Clips learns to recognize familiar faces. The more you’re with someone, the more it learns to capture clips of them. It can also pick out pets like cats or dogs.

How can Clips recognize you and your pets?

For years, Google has warned people that they use pattern and facial recognition to identify everyone. But Clips takes it a step further and uses machine-learning technology to identify everyone. (Click here to find out more about Google’s facial recognition.)

Google claims Clips was designed with privacy safeguards…

We know privacy and control really matter, so we’ve been thoughtful about this for Clips users, their families, and friends. (Source)

How thoughtful has Google been? And why should anyone worry about privacy if Clips isn’t connected to the Internet?

Updated 10/9:

Google uses facial recognition to identify everyone twice

According to an article in Computerworld, Clips uses embedded facial recognition to identify people once and then uses Google Photos facial recognition to identify people a second time!

And here’s the revolution: The face recognition takes place on the device, not in the cloud. Pictures are stored on the device, not in the cloud.

Of course, you can use the app to choose clips for uploading to Google Photos. Once uploaded into Google Photos, the pictures will be processed again for face recognition, and this time with names attached…


Google Photos can reproduce or modify your pictures

Google Clips tells users to download their pictures to Google Photos, which gives Google permission to modify your pictures, make compilation videos of them and much more.

Once a user has downloaded their pictures to Google Photos, they can kiss their privacy goodbye as their Terms of Service states.

When you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our Services, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works… (Source)

Business Insider warns that Google can recognize people’s faces taken years apart and identify the brand of clothing you’re wearing. An article in Newsend warns that Google Photos is creating a valuable profile of every user for advertising purposes.

If you’re concerned about your privacy, buy a digital camera that lets you to upload your pictures to your laptop without a corporation spying on you.

  1. Holy Hades … is that supposed to be a girl or a guy in the video?

    I can’t imagine owning something like this (nor making it in the first place) but I’m sure there are hoardes of idiots who would line up to get one ….

  2. never seen a presenter look more excited.

  3. “We’re going to build a wall around Mexico — and Mexico is going to pay for it!” — Donald Trump 2016
    “We’re going to install a complete surveillance system in every home in the USA — and the People are going to pay for it!” — Google 2017

    This is the scariest new Christmas boutique gift item on the planet! Only the very stupid will buy it — or buy into it. The dangers of this insidious thing are far too numerous to list here.

    Too bad, because in a world where evil does not rule, it would be great fun. But, alas, evil does rule here, and everything cool is a weapon used against us.

  4. Now you know why Google sent cars around the planet to take pictures of everything they could think of. Now, if you take a picture of anything in front of your home, they will be able to find that exact location (and coordinates) of said picture. Anyone will be able to do this. Welcome to “freedom”, sheeple…

    The aims of today’s technology is to limit the human mind in attempt to pacify the person into a deep slumber. Where one is unconscious to the effects of their daily acts, words, and thoughts. From there the mind, or shall I say the absence of mind, becomes highly receptive to suggestion.

    The technology isn’t to suveil you, although, it is an added benefit. It is to control you. They say they are making it easier for you to survive by removing the hard labors, or whatever lie works for the occasion. In fact they are taking you out of the equation, and using the shell you leave behind for whatever purposes necessary.

    Meanwhile the materials needed to build this crap, is destroying the ability for humans to live freely. What sustains you for what entertains you. What nourishes you for what posions you. All the While they make you believe that you are providing for yourself, serving your country, bettering the lives of your countrymen. In actuality, the governments are just killing and enslaving humans to produce all the bullshit to which we’ve become accustomed.
