Not to mention creepy?

Naked Security explains:

Deep neural networks (DNNs): meant to mimic the brain’s hidden layers of interconnected neurons, they’re complex machine learning systems that can learn tasks on their own by analyzing vast amounts of large, unstructured data such as digital images, sound, or text in order to make predictions.

Think DNNs that are better than humans at lip-reading because of the way they can not only interpret “spatiotemporal” changes in the mouth’s shape as a human speaks but which can also make predictions based on the entire sentence being spoken, so as to use sentence context to improve guesses.

Another development relying on DNN is Google’s ability to turn heavily pixellated images back into recognizable faces: just one thing Google’s doing with AI and its enormous ocean of images.
