Our photo uploads give scientists billions of eyes on the world

This article discusses the fact that scientists or companies analyze and retrieve information from our pictures that we are posting on the internet every day, and use it in order to make certain processes more efficient and save both time and money.

These ideas are very interesting and it's a whole new world out there. We live in a different world than the one we lived in before. A world where society put more faith in technology than the ordinary mind. We live behind a computer screen and follow the news feed blindly. The fast developments in technology expect humans to integrate and adapt to this new society we are creating.

The article mention just a fraction of how we collect information through computerized systems, which in turn will be the basis for decisions materials. Many people do not reflect on this and it feels just normal for them. But there are some things that is worth mentioning or discusses.

The development of the technological world is expensive. Which means that someone or some people with a lot of money sitting on the power. Money has always been associated with power and power can always be used to manipulate and get groups of right people on their side. The news feed is easily to influence and can be designed in a way that the company wants you to perceive it.

Another issue I have, is the fact that I do not think it's enough to look at photos to analyze if there are some risks in some streets, or if the air pollution is too high. You might miss a lot of information, that other senses may notice, which can play a big role. I definitely think that we should use technology as a tool but not to collect information that may be questionable, and then make decisions based on that information.

What do you guys think?
