If you ever thought, "Hey, I am not going to show my face in that pic my friends are taking that will definitely be uploaded to Facebook. No one will recognize me. I have found a flaw in the system," you would be wrong.
Facebook has developed a new technology that is used to recognize a person, even without them showing their face. "New Scientist" reports that a new computer vision algorithm can identify individuals in pictures without them facing the camera.
Algorithms already suggest tags that are used to identify people in photos uploaded to the social network. However, according to Time, this new technology unveiled at the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition conference in Boston was able to recognize "people in 40,000 public Flickr photos with 83% accuracy."
The equally amazing and scary part? It can recognize what kind of clothes you frequently wear or your hairstyle. Facebook's head of artificial intelligence told "New Scientist" that "people have characteristic aspects, even if you look at them from the back."
No more avoiding the camera now, Facebook will find you. The only way to truly beat the system? Never wear the same thing twice, and always have a different hairstyle. Simple, right?
