The coded gaze: biased and understudied facial recognition technology

I can’t even imagine how many dick pics this app will generate.


#3

Ketchup or Mustard?


#4

The question of import in our fractured age.


#5

Does it pass the “hot dog or legs” test?


#6

I hear they have an API that will allow people to use it with Oculus (or was that octopus?).


#7

But will it tell you, definitively, if your hotdog is a sandwich?


#8

There is more pork in that shoe.

Unless it is fake leather, in which case go ahead and eat either of them, it’s your stomach.


#9

I think I know where Silicon Valley’s writers got the idea: Comedy Hackday NYC 2016, How Many Rocks?. It used object recognition to return “It’s a rock” or “Not a rock”.

Sneaky sneaky!


#10

I wonder how it rates tofu dogs, because I know plenty of people who insist those aren’t real hot dogs.

Have them call us back when it understands bananas.


#14

But, will it tell you if you have a Japadog?


#15

I heard the developer sold it to Periscope to filter our dick pics.

Best episode of Silicon Valley in ages!

I was thinking that this show is really about the destruction that the main characters cause and now this episode confirms it.


#17

It best say “hot dogs” with ketchup on them aren’t really hot dogs.
