Digital surveillance...Google reveals plans to put ‘eyes in machines’
Google is planning to put “eyes in machines” and boost computers’ ability to automatically recognise people, places or objects.
The tech giant has just revealed plans to purchase a French firm called Moodstocks which builds software capable of working out what’s happening in a photo – a trick called image recognition.
This buyout is likely to conclude within weeks, although it’s not known exactly how much Google paid to buy the company.
