Google’s Trying to Buy Faces For as Less as $5?









After already owning lots of information about the people who use it, Google’s up for trying to own people’s faces, that too just for $5!

Allegedly, individuals from Google are meeting up with people and are asking them to use the “selfie” mode in various angles.

Many teams of Google representative across several different cities are panning out people to collect “facial” data.

When asked the say that they are collecting data to “improve the next generation of facial recognition” while unlocking the phone.


What does that person get in exchange for their valuable face? Merely a gift card worth $5 to Starbucks or Amazon.

After the person agrees to participate in this new development initiative, a relatively large phone is handed out in an inconspicuous looking case that hides its shape.

Also, the participant then is apparently asked to sign a waiver.

It is being conjectured that the device given to the participants is a pre-release version of Google’s Pixel 4s still in its testing stage.

The data that gets fed into the prototype machine apparently gets worked into an algorithm to recognizes faces by way of a varied assortment of sensors.

As is in the air already, Google’s all set for losing its 2D face recognition sensors and is about to embrace official support for 3D face unlock.

Between all these assumptions, suppositions and surmises Google haven’t officially uttered a word.
