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 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?
