Google 'bans' facial recognition on Google Glass - but developers persist

05/06/2013 16:35

Search giant says it won't allow apps or services that perform facial recognition - but ban is called 'symbolic', while others expect it to return.
Google will not allow apps that implement facial recognition on its Google Glass product, the company says, citing privacy concerns, after an American company said it would offer a commercial service to recognise celebrities and others.
Developers have pointed out though that it is possible to load apps - which Google calls "Glassware" - onto the wearable system without needing Google's permission. Those could then communicate with any of a growing number of services which say they can connect a name with a face once given a photo.
Equally, users could simply upload still pictures to other online services which would provide the facial recognition service. "A 'ban' is purely symbolic," commented Martin Macdonald, a marketing director for Expedia EAN who has tried Google Glass.
