zWe asked for it and Google started the project already! We are speaking about the project for facial recognition for Google Glass. Lambada Labs announced the project earlier this week and the work for it already started. Probably, Google will not approve "Glassware" facial recognition due to privacy concerns and we are waiting for an official statement as the world of technology was waiting for this project for a long time.Here is the official statement from Google about it:
"When we started the Explorer Program nearly a year ago our goal was simple: we wanted to make people active participants in shaping the future of this technology ahead of a broader consumer launch. We've been listening closely to you, and many have expressed both interest and concern around the possibilities of facial recognition in Glass. As Google has said for several years, we won’t add facial recognition features to our products without having strong privacy protections in place. With that in mind, we won’t be approving any facial recognition Glassware at this time. We’ve learned a lot from you in just a few weeks and we’ll continue to learn more as we update the software and evolve our policies in the weeks and months ahead."
If you read it again, you will notice that they didn't said anything about that Google Glass could not run facial recognition. Perhaps the decision will be in the hands of the customers as Google put their faith in the beliefs of the market.
