There is a lot of talk about evil AI these days and Apple isn’t making it any better. The company shocked the world regarding its new facial recognition for the upcoming iPhone X. While most see it as a convenient upgrade to our lives, some see this as the beginning of our technology-driven slavery.
SENATOR THINKS IPHONE X AI COULD BE EVIL
Apple just updated its security and privacy information regarding its new facial recognition tech. The upcoming iPhone X replaced the fingerprint sensor with Face ID so users can unlock their phones. Not all see this as a beneficial upgrade though.
Senator Al Franken wrote a lengthy letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook regarding the new technology. While he doesn’t explicitly come out and say this AI is evil, he poses many questions about the future of our privacy.
IPHONE X AI IS EVIL AND TAKING OUR PRIVACY
If the iPhone X is stealing our information, then there’s no doubt it’s an evil technology. Senator Al Franken agrees that our privacy is a basic and necessary human right. If you think about how much personal information we keep on our Apple devices, it’s scary to think someone can get a hold of that.
People record their location, their heart rates after a workout, their friends, emails, pictures and more. Apple assures us this is all secure but what if AI gets in the wrong hands?
TIM COOK CLAIMS IPHONE X IS PROTECTING US FROM EVIL AI
Apple prides itself on high-quality devices and hardware. That’s where the majority of its sales come from. Unlike other companies that rely on advertisements or other data, Apple knows their consumers come for premium goods. Hence, this is why we see technology like Face ID. People trust Apple and they want their information to be as safe as possible. Face ID might be a scary thing to some conspiracy theorists but to others, it’s a whole lot safer than a four-digit passcode.
