What happens behind closed doors may not be secret for long, and executives should beware of new ambient surveillance methods.

MIT computer vision scientists discovered how to use computer vision to track data from what they call “accidental cameras.” Windows, mirrors, corners, houseplants and other common objects can be used, along with A.I., to track subtle changes in light, shadow and vibrations. The result? We all may soon have x-ray vision capabilities—which may not be great news for companies working on sensitive projects.

Those working in information security and risk management should pay especially close attention to advancements in computer vision.
