Pittsburgh Pattern Recognition has been acquired by Google

GoogleEdward KiledjianComment

Google has quietly acquired a Pittsburgh company that has technology related to facial recognition. The company, PittPatt, was founded and run by 3 Carnegie Mellon University PhDs. No one really know why Google made the purchase or where/when it will be used but it is safe to assume it will be one more tool in their anti-Facebook crusade.

We will be anxiously waiting to see how this “computer vision technology” will be implemented and deployed while adhering to Google’s mantra “Do no evil”.
