Guido Lang, assistant professor of computer information systems in the School of Business at Quinnipiac University, was quoted in a TechNewsWorld article about facial recognition and privacy protections on Google Glass.
“Google’s decision to keep facial recognition out of Google Glass means little,” Lang said. “Google can and will change its policy when it’s in its best interest to do so.”
Google’s decision may encourage hackers to implement such features in apps for rooted versions of Glass, he told the online publication.
“Ultimately, Google will follow consumer demand,” he explained. “Let’s face it: Facial recognition could be the killer app for Glass.”
