I'm a little worried about Facebook's plans to use their computer vision algorithms for buildings into . I just don't trust them. They had to be dragged kicking and screaming to actually interact with the community, and if we're not careful, they'll stomp all over our map.

The tech sure is interesting. I just wish it was all open source, rather than being controlled, and tracked, through the largest violator of privacy on the internet right now.

Clarification: FB haven't generated buildings with their software, the demo was using Microsoft's generated building dataset.
