So google employees too stupid to know that their company has been in bed with the government for decades now? Color me surprised.

Google: People use guns to kill and that's not ok. We're taking a stance against violence, especially with guns.

Also Google: What's that? You'll pay millions of dollars for our help with your machine made to kill people? Sign us up!

Ahh man there was a video I saw a year or 2 ago from an asian country where they have already combined the AI learning technology with their traffic cameras and it could ID every person and car that drove by. Must of linked to the government database and/or social media accounts.

Add 10 years or so to this tech to guesstimate their capabilities. Your personal spy device only makes it easier. Combine that with facial recognition + aerial city surveillance/tracking and your life, both internal and external, is practically an open book.

Even if you're not a user of those socialist media platforms, they probably have a file on you, based just on your existence and interaction with the world.
