I know it’s a fever dream but man the idea of having AR glasses and looking at an object like a bird and then it being able to identify it on the spot sounds both really cool and terrifying

Real time object classification isn't a fever dream, neural networks that classify objects can be run on very modest hardware today. The tricky part is making the glasses stylish and not having cords connecting them to your phone.

Plus, you'd have to wait for someone to solve the captcha for you

LMAO. Fair point but judging by how difficult some of those are compared to the past I'd imagine Googles object detection is getting pretty good.

But the text is blurred and then you hear a little ding and renew your subscription to WorldFacts to see again.

Or what's truly terrifying is walking down High street and all the floating AR ads are generated and targeted just at you.

The same coffee shop-

"Come drink at Liberal Tears fuck dem commies am I right HU-RA"

"This is an LGBTQ-IE Coffee Haus, all beans are triple washed and ethically ground"

my favorite use case to imagine is: you're walking down a city street looking at all the seemingly random people you're passing—but that guy on the left you've actually seen 36 times mostly every Thursday in this spot, and that woman in the right has been in the coffee shop back in your neighborhood with you 8 times this year

the social implications are weeiirddd, it could make big cities start to feel a lot smaller
