Are you not a little tired of everything to be so smart? The last fair of the CES has surprised us with new achievements? technology that they have tried to take advantage of the fever by the intelligent and connected devices in ways that scratch the absurd and the ridiculous.
Have seen it all around: Smart shorts, smart pillows, smart bottles, showers intelligent, smart shower ducks brushes intelligent teeth or teacups smart who have finished by us a lot and that also hide a dangerous threat: the monitor even more what we do. The smart has become weary.
Would really connected comb the world needs?
There is no company that lately do not take advantage This hellish little word. Even those that one would not you associate of first segment of technology, as it is the case with L’ Oréal.
Thanks but no, thanks
The firm partnered with Withings to present ‘intelligent’ hair brush or a comb collect data while you comb you and you you brush your hair. As explained TC Sottek, editor at The Verge:
It is easy to laugh at a connected hair brush, but it is only part of a much larger story that increasingly has been developing fast each year that passed since the massive adoption of phones and mobile networks. Now all want to be part of the network, and wants to collect as much data as possible.
The reality, as I said this expert, is cruel and real: of that suddenly we have devices absurdities (for most people) like this that cost $200 and that few would buy, but that beyond providing a better experience in the long run, or several advantages for the user, they end up becoming spies in everything we do. Up to manage us in the morning.
Privacy in focus
The dangers of these devices they are obvious, and in fact that was the central theme of “Retail Surveillance” talk that a security expert performed during the celebration of the Chaos Communication Congress (33c3).
Such talk spoke of how the experience of physical stores and online is becoming a dangerous revealing of preferences and tastes over the whole world. Track the location of our smartphones or facial recognition for the field of email marketing are already very integrated in that industry, but There are more threats.
In fact computer vision algorithms are able to draw conclusions even from seemingly irrelevant topics such as clothing that we put when we go to buy clothes. Everything is exposed, and the talk showed how the amount of facial attributes that can be collected from an image of a face with a size of only 100 x 100 pixels is amazing.
This talk was actually one of many devoted to subjects that this extreme surveillance and that massive data collection were protagonists. This fever for connected devices It promises to make life easier and better, but it also threatens to serve to feed the voracious appetite to know it all about us.
Would the same be better a world less ‘smart’
At this point I have a confession to make: as any neighbor’s son I’ve infected the fever of smart devices, and in my family of assemblies ‘smart’ have a TV, a phone or a smartwatch that have one thing in common: all of them I know what I have shown When I use them.
That made that I recently buy a silly TV. Supertonta, in fact. I have done so with the comfort of knowing that what proposed me my other TV (the “intelligent”) me is useless, because I actually use a fraction of its capacities and always have a (strong) that suspicion TV It is gathering additional information that should, as it is the case every day with what I do on my PC, my laptop or my smartphone.
But as I said, these devices I have still some control about what I do and what I give. I can take certain steps to protect my privacy (a bit) and to some extent I know the sacrifices that I use those devices and services that I get from them.
The thing is complicated by this new hyperconnected world, and that’s what scares me (US?): that my refrigerator, my toothbrush, my comb, my underpants, my belt, my shirt or my speaker are constantly monitoring me and collecting data to do God knows what with all those data. I’m tired of everything to be so ‘smart’, but this world is becoming more determined to be him, and I don’t know if I’m (are we?) ready.
Gives me I said no.
