Watch this video:

None of the technologies involved in this video are too far away from what is available today.

 

When you think about all the data available from face recognition, and geo-localisation – available from all major corporation – from Google to Apple including Facebook or Amazon – just to name the big ones – it does make you think.

 

And mistakes in targeting happen everyday in advertising – but it’d be a very different topic to have it happen in a military operation – just like it is happening in this film.

 

 

I honestly don’t know yet what to think of it … beside of course that’s a pretty terrible future that’s coming if this would become a reality.

 

I made a post earlier – on dystopian future – go check it out – it *will* make you think…

 

The only thing I am sure, is that whatever evolutions will come from all these technologies, education and preparation are the only things can help us overcome the darkest aspects of human nature.
