CLEARVIEW AI APP ALLOWS STRANGERS TO INSTANTLY RETRIEVE ALL YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION SIMPLY BY SNAPPING YOUR PICTURE AS THEY PASS YOU ON THE STREETS by Geoffrey Grider for Now The End Begins
A startup called Clearview AI lets strangers find your name and personal information with snap of a photo, and its app is currently being used by hundreds of law enforcement agencies in the US, including the FBI, says a Saturday report in The New York Times.
What if a stranger could snap your picture on the sidewalk then use an app to quickly discover your name, address and other details? Meet Clearview AI
It’s been building now for decades, but when the change finally comes, it will seem so swift and all encompassing that it will be nearly unrecognizable by most people. I am talking of course about the day when we become fully integrated into a cyborg world dominated by AI, VR, and all the other alphabet designations that are heralding the coming switch. And this is not something that will be relegated to the time of Jacob’s trouble, this is something we will experience now before the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church.
“Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.” Habakkuk 1:5 (KJB)
We have been groomed as a population though books, movies and music to accept a world that we not only share with machines but one in which we begin to merge with the machines. The smart phone debuted in 2007, and in just 13 short years it has grown to be an appendage to our physical bodies. That is the very definition of what a cyborg is. Over the next 2-5 years, if the Lord tarries, we will see things and be immersed in things that were only thought possible in science fiction novels. The Matrix, Minority Report, and all those other movies will become everyday reality.
Clearview AI app lets strangers find your name and info with snap of a photo
FROM C|NET: A startup called Clearview AI has made that possible, and its app is currently being used by hundreds of law enforcement agencies in the US, including the FBI, says a Saturday report in The New York Times.
The app, says the Times, works by comparing a photo to a database of more than 3 billion pictures that Clearview says it’s scraped off Facebook, Venmo, YouTube and other sites. It then serves up matches, along with links to the sites where those database photos originally appeared. A name might easily be unearthed, and from there other info could be dug up online.
The size of the Clearview database dwarfs others in use by law enforcement. The FBI’s own database, which taps passport and driver’s license photos, is one of the largest, with over 641 million images of US citizens. The Clearview app isn’t currently available to the public, but the Times says police officers and Clearview investors think it will be in the future.
