Amazon's Facial Recognition Problem: Tech in 60 Seconds

Should Amazon stop selling its facial recognition technology to law enforcement?

Probably. There's a big problem with its facial recognition technology where it has a harder time identifying people of color and women. It should surely solve that problem before it sells it to law enforcement or else it's going to get a lot of trouble.

Will Snap's move into games be a success?

Hard to say. So the problem with Snapchat is that they make really good products. They see the future, but they have a hard time building stuff that Facebook and Instagram can't copy. So, my guess? This is probably going to be a good product. Will they be able to make money off of it? We'll see.

Yes! Turn it off. Bluetooth is very susceptible to hackers. So there is a real risk. Toggle the little switch. Turn it off.

Is Instagram influence just as good as cash?
