What a game! Loved it.

I was on a dozen stations this morning talking about the technology in the Super Bowl and there’s a lot to talk about!

The Drones

  • The FAA wouldn’t let them fly drones over the stadium, so they recorded it earlier in the week-They are part of a new business for Intel. “Shooting Star” drone air-shows
  • They are part of a new business for Intel. “Shooting Star” drone air-shows
  • The weight of a volleyball, quadra-copters
  • All 300 were controlled by a single operator

Google Home Ad Caused Problems for Its Products

  • Google’s Smart-Home automation devices respond to voice command using “OK, Google”
  • Google’s Ad contained the phrase “OK, Google” and the devices woke up, confused
  • Google’s servers got hit with a swarm of invalid commands
  • The Twitter-verse exploded with complaints
  • Similar problem with a TV station’s report on Amazon Echo being used to order a doll house by a young girl

Security Was Heavy, With Tech Behind the Scenes

  • Every person who entered the stadium was likely subjected to a facial recognition scan. They started doing it 16 years ago.
  • They used infra-red camera technology to track people throughout the entire Super Bowl 10-days of festivities.
  • Is our Surveillance society expanding?
