EDITOR’S NOTE: If the V.P. of the Archdiocesan Council is using surveillance on his own family (in this case his daughter), what advice is he giving to the Archbishop and others within the Archdiocese? There was a time when cameras were very popular in GOA… No need to go back to these unfortunate times.  Let’s hope that the new advanced technology will not give any “smart” ideas to anyone in the Archdiocese about putting cameras in Metropolises or even parishes…. We do not need surveillance “apps” in the Church of Christ… There is an Eye watching all of us that truly matters, the one from Above…

One Tuesday night in October 2018, John Catsimatidis, the billionaire owner of the Gristedes grocery store chain, was having dinner at Cipriani, an upscale Italian restaurant in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood, when his daughter, Andrea, walked in. She was on a date with a man Mr. Catsimatidis didn’t recognize. After the couple sat down at another table, Mr. Catsimatidis asked a waiter to go over and take a photo.

Mr. Catsimatidis then uploaded the picture to a facial recognition app, Clearview AI, on his phone. The start-up behind the app has a database of billions of photos, scraped from sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Within seconds, Mr. Catsimatidis was viewing a collection of photos of the mystery man, along with the web addresses where they appeared: His daughter’s date was a venture capitalist from San Francisco.

“I wanted to make sure he wasn’t a charlatan,” said Mr. Catsimatidis, who then texted the man’s bio to his daughter.

Ms. Catsimatidis said she and her date had no idea how her father had identified him so quickly. “I expect my dad to be able to do crazy things. He’s very technologically savvy,” Ms. Catsimatidis said. “My date was very surprised.”
