Google Unveils Object-Recognition Feature
ONLINE PRIVACYMay 24, 2013
The Huffington Post reports on Google’s latest rollout, an object-recognition feature that has thus far flown under the radar. “Photo Search with Visual Recognition” allows users to search for an object on Google’s network and view all photos taken of that object by people in their Google+ circles, the report states. “Of course, the privacy-invading nature of social network ‘upgrades’ has now become such old news that the Google+ feature may go off without a hitch,” the report states, noting, however, that the feature does somewhat mitigate privacy concerns by only allowing searches within established circles.
