Google Photos has announced that it can now detect photos of your pet, automatically grouping them together the way it does with people.
"This is just the start,” Google says. “If you have a number of pets that are the same breed (such as a few yellow Labs), you might need to help the app by removing photos of a misgrouped pet, so the app can tell Lassie from Fido."
This means you will no longer have to type in words like “dog” or “cat,” as the algorithm will sort them for you.
Android 6.0 and above contains a vulnerability that researchers claim “makes it trivial to intercept and manipulate traffic sent by these Linux and Android devices.” 41 percent of Android devices are vulnerable to an “exceptionally devastating” variant of the Wi-Fi attack that involves manipulating traffic.
A new exploit can allow attackers to read Wi-Fi traffic between devices and wireless access points, and even modify it to inject malware into websites.
Attackers might be able to inject ransomware or malware into websites thanks to the attack, and Android devices will require security patches to protect against this.
