Deepface

Screen Shot 2014-02-06 at 11.37.08 AM

Facebook just announced a new software program called Deepface, which allows Facebook to recognize your face from two different photos with a 97.25 accuracy rate.  Three Facebook developers created the  software so it would be used in the business model.  The purpose behind it is to collect information we post so they can personalize ads, so we will click them.  Also, you do not even need to tag people anymore since it can recognize the faces.  Imagine someone created a Google Glass app that can scan a person’s face and their public information is shown. Kinda creepy.

  1. I noticed this sort of technology when uploading albums onto Facebook. It is definitely creepy when it asks to tag the (correct) person in photos without me manually selecting their names.
