This being Google, how much data does it send back to them?

And if it doesn't will it continue to not send back data in future releases?

That said, curious to see how RL facial recognition matches the stuff in the movies.

Well, it's Deep Learning, so it sends everything back to them.

The image recognition processing is not done on the PC, I'll wager.

It's a good question. After all, Google Voice was only made so Google could get voice recognition samples for later services. They don't give this stuff away for free.

And certainly not in javascript in a web browser. It would probably take an hour just to process a single image.

Wrong. This runs in the browser, using WebGL to access your GPU for hardware acceleration.

well it doesnt need to - you just have to do the training yourself.

I've just started playing with AI and deep learning and I'd recommend getting into it ASAP as if we dont find truly open alternatives to google and co we are going to be seriously disadvantaged.

It's not only easy to get into machine learning, it has been for years.

Even the name, the teachable machine, has been around for years.

Purr Puss could recognise you had put up two fingers to it, too.
