    What, you were trusting Windows' root CAs & chain if you didn't have to?

    Right, because mouth holes aren't as useful as eye holes, through transparent material...

    The added condensation is improving the disguise.
    How to tell the difference between Machine Learning and AI:
    If it is written in Python it is most likely Machine Learning.
    If it is written in PowerPoint it is most likely AI.

    It's just an example.

    So this Clearview thing.

    Leaving aside how it will obviously be abused at a (relatively) low level by the clients & their employees, such as by spousal abuse & stalking - it will ultimately get people murdered. It's acutely damaging to wit-sec practices, will see undercover police work becoming significantly more risky, American born agents in foreign countries getting ID'd... I mean, in my casual reasoned opinion it wouldn't be entirely a shame if everyone involved were on the same crashed plane and the office mysteriously burnt down overnight, but that's just like my opinion, man.

    EDIT: oh and get ready for the aggressive harassment of activists to get turned to 11. This is also a technical foundation for hyper-personal advertising in public spaces, enjoy everyone else on the tube knowing you've been browsing Bad Dragon.

    It's black mirror-esque nightmare fuel technology.

    EDIT EDIT: On reflection, I seriously undersold how bad spousal abuse & stalking are, but oh boy stalking is just gonna EXPLODE with this.

    haha this is actually giving me anxiety

    The only winning move is not to play social media.

    Or to be into such an eclectic mix of stuff that no one can figure you out.
