In the hand of technology

We are leaving more and more decisions to computers, clouds and AI ( artificial intelligence)

When computers take snapshots they might see more than us

Technology can combine face recognition, artificial intelligence and cloud based databases, that feeds from social media, apps and other sources of information about each and one of us.

The ability to combine the photos with information about the ones in the picture gives the technology an image that is loaded with things like our preferences, our shopping habits, health, age, economy,  and what relationships we spend time on and in, what movies we watch and where we spend our days and nights.

It is an overview that might take knowledge of us to levels that are beyond our imagination.

At the moment it is an open question how this will influence us on both a personal, social and global level in the near future
