"Google has already implemented image recognition software (no surprise there) into its consumer-facing Google Photos. The platform takes a look at the photo collections of each user and sets out to organize them by categories.

The Big Picture of Oil and Our Troubles by Leif Wenar

Blog

If we are going to pursue sustainability as an operating principle of our planet, then it can't remain business as usual when it comes to the buying and selling of oil as we are denying and acting against the basic principle that a country belongs to its people.  An especially treacherous situation made worse when coupled with the bad, old rule, 'Might Makes Right.'
