Really good article about how the notion of a camera is changing with AI. I also appreciate that the privacy perspective is well covered.

State of the Art Something strange, scary and sublime is happening to cameras, and it’s going to complicate everything you knew about pictures. Cameras are getting brains. Until the past few years, just about all cameras – whether smartphones or point-and-shoots or CCTV surveillance – were like eyes disconnected from any intelligence.
