Leaving that tiny bit of old painted aluminium cladding just looks so cheap.

Long live the old beige original Eaton cladding!

I actually loved that cladding, I found that it aged pretty seamlessly. Unfortunately we don't be saying the same for most of the hacked up facades along Yonge Street (ie: Uniqlo).
That stuff was actually porcelain on aluminum and it stood up well.

This is prep work for the new "icicle" LEDs (an homage to a building up the street).

Meanwhile, the office tower at Yonge & Dundas looks like it's been hit by a tornado.

I have heard of this technology being used to gather demographic data (using image recognition to classify people by age, sex, etc.). I'm rather surprised that a solution provider would make a solution that violates privacy laws as compliance is a pretty high priority for large corporate customers (no one wants to be the CEO for another Target CC leak, etc.).

A read of the decision indicates the following.

As long as there is care not to track or identify individuals, I don't have any objection to using facial recognition to gather demo data or understand consumer behaviour (ie, tracking a 'session' of where a person went during a visit). If anyone objects to this, I assume they don't use the internet, which offers much more opportunity for fine grain identification of individuals, and their behaviours and thoughts.

My internet doesn't read my face though.

It knows exactly who you are, where you live, what you like (both publicly and privately), your age, gender, political orientation, sexual orientation, relationship status, etc. etc. etc. And it has your face (courtesy facebook etc.).
