AI Engine behind Google Image App now open source

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015

Propaganda warning: This video is pretty obviously being used by google to highlight their "diversity".  I suspect it is overdone in that regard.  I'm not a fan of phonies of which social justice warriors are the worst ever created.

Facial Recognition and Retouching Software
