Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

Seeing AI through Google Glass ?



In my yesterday’s blog , I mentioned Microsoft’s Mobile app “ SeeingAI



It is supposed to “interpret the EMOTIONS “ of the person being photographed


Later , in the evening , when someone took my photo ( iPhone required ) , “ Seeing AI “ screen read ( it can SPEAK too , since it is meant for blind persons ) :


“ A 85 year old man with face showing neutral expression “


100 % correct  !  100 %  spooky  !


What would “ Seeing   AI “ tell you if you were to take a photo of ,


#   Now illegal currency note of Rs 1,000  ?

#   A 8 month pregnant woman ?



I do not want to spoil your amazement  !



Next year , I expect  “ Seeing AI “ ( an Android version ) to read / speak :


“ 86 years old Hemen Parekh , with an expression of amusement listening to the futile
  debate on Right to Privacy




And in another 3 years , no need for that intruder of your privacy, to carry a iPhone .


Just watch out for anyone wearing  the latest version / imitation of Google Glass and looking at you from 20 feet away (unfortunately , every glass-wearing person you meet in a Conference Room , cannot be sued for breach of privacy ! )


Not only will he READ on the glass screen , EVERYTHING about you , but also LISTEN every word that you are uttering ( lip-reading apps are already being experimented )


Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen ( both from Google ) wrote in 2013 ,


“ The New Digital Age “( pg 56 ) :



 “ Individuals will still have some discretion over what they share from their devices , but it will be IMPOSSIBLE to control what others capture and share “



To know what those devices would  “ capture and share “ about you , look up :





To keep your BP down and your Sanity up , resign to the inevitable !
