For me the scary part is just how INVASIVE tech is getting, I cant even imagine the ways govt & companies are SPYING on us all at present. I think we are not to far off with having to be microchipped at birth & only god knows what else.

Glad I am closer to end than the beginning of life, cause its getting worse & worse at an alarming rate!

The AI can't identify people from their hands, but it could be coupled with identity recognition technology so companies could keep track of employees' washing habits, said Suzuki.

This is just creepy.
