AI from Google is used in the project to create a virtual border wall

According to documents related to a federal contract, Google technology is used to track and identify people on the US-Mexico border.

Google is involved in the implementation of the Trump administration’s border policy, which deals with the de facto and informational separation of the United States and Mexico.

CBP Autonomous Surveillance Towers organizes automatic surveillance “24 hours a day, 365 days a year” to help the agency “identify items of interest: people or vehicles”.

It is unclear exactly how the CBP (Military Intelligence Service) plans to use Google Cloud along with Anduril. Google spokesman Jane Hodos declined to comment or discuss the contract.

The contract documents indicate that CBP’s new work with Google is being carried out through Virginia-based third-party federal contractor Thundercat Technology. Thundercat is a reseller that positions itself as the leading IT provider for federal contracts.

The agency notes that Google is touting powerful cloud-based image recognition technology through its Vision AI product, which can quickly detect, classify people, objects in an image, or video file. It is these functions that will be extremely useful for a government agency that plans to install towers with surveillance cameras in the border region.
