Untold amounts of photos are uploaded to Facebook every day. Most of these photos have pictures of you or others in them, and Facebook’s DeepFace AI program is matching these photos with a 97.25 percent accuracy rating. The potentially disturbing fact is that even if you are not tagged in the photos, DeepFace is still taking note of you.
Moral implications aside, DeepFace is an impressive bit of engineering. A technique called Deep Learning is what powers the DeepFace AI tech. While the ability to detect a face in picture is not new technology, the process of identifying it is much more complex. The great majority of human faces include the same things: two eyes, a nose, mouth, and so on.
