Will Calorie Counting Technology Be The End Of Food Porn?

Is there anything Google isn’t trying to get into these days?  First it was Google Glass, then it was smart pants, and now it’s Im2Galories: technology that sees your food porn and knows exactly how many calories are in it.

Welcome to the new age of Food Shaming, everybody.

According to Google, Im2Calories will use “sophisticated deep learning algorithms” (whatever that means) to look at a photo and determine how many calories are on the plate. Of course this new technology will probably be just as accurate at predicting calories as that app was as that Microsoft app was at guessing your age, but still, just because you’re bragging to the world about how delicious your om noms look, that doesn’t mean you necessarily want people to know how many calories you’re about to ingest.

Time will tell whether or not Im2Calories will revolutionize the way we view food porn, so enjoy your relatively guilt-free lifestyle while it lasts.
