What do corporations see in your photos? More than you think

Operating within a specific information bubble can sometimes cause (un) pleasant surprises. Well, apart from people interested in technology, it is not “common knowledge” that by passing photos to technology giants, we often allow them to use automatic facial recognition techniques on them. So let’s talk about it, and also explain as simply as possible what such recognition may be about.

I remember the moment when information about the object recognition system appeared on the Google blog. Then, among other things, graphics with pizzas on the stove were presented. Ironically, I remember that moment mainly because of her. However, what is obvious to me (because I can see – two pizzas on the stove) – is not so obvious to the computer. The year 2014 was the first very important signal that Google already has a really powerful machine learning mechanism that recognizes what is in the pictures. After 7 years from that moment, no one is surprised that in the Google Photos application you can search for photos by typing in the search engine what it is about. Do you want a picture of a dog? Enter “dog”. Do you want photos from the wedding? So enter “wedding”.
