Or just tilt your head to the right or left by about 30 degrees and nearly all FR software won't recognize your face.

surely you could whip up some biometrics that do a reasonable job of identifying people by the distance between their chin and their ears, chin to nose, etc.

/ Or just make better cameras...

Not for anything, but how is this a practical solution? You make the assumption that 1) the individual will be aware of all the cameras and 2) all of the cameras are only directly in front of the individual's face. Walk into any casino floor and you'll know that that isn't the case.

Not everything you see on NCIS is accurate. They can't "enhance" an image from a satellite to read your license plate number, they can't use a blurry image of your face and  run it through the world-wide database to determine your identity and forensic scientists aren't usually hot goth girls.

Have you ever tried walking around with your head at a 30º angle?

Sorry, a lot of places already ban masks in public and some (banks, other places) even ban sunglasses or hats. Whatever way we come up to so we can avoid this facial recognition sh*t, they will just make rules banning it.

Why don't you just do what I do and wear other peoples faces?

I do it all the time.  It's the best way to get a seat to yourself on the bus.

I thought it was bar codes but now your face is the number of the beast! The only thing to do is take off your face or burn it hell! Can I get a hey man?

Mugato : they can't use a blurry image of your face and run it through the world-wide database to determine your identity

Actually, there's a TED talk from a research team that's working on exactly that.

The idea being that they take a known face, blur it, and feed both into their algorithm.

Out of focus images are blurred in a regular manner. By analyzing the blurred face along with the original face, they are learning what the blurry version of a human face looks like and they extrapolate backward.

Facial recognition as it currently exists is only measuring the distances between key facial features. So the research is basically centered around recognizing blurred areas and extrapolating (IE, where is the pupil, where is the nose, etc).

At some point, we're basically going to be living in "Person of Interest".

I understand all that. I just don't see there being the "something from nothing" that people that simply command "enhance" can bring outside of sci-fi. Not with any accuracy that can be presented in court anyway.

Ohh, you mean how they take a blurry image and clean it up to see a license plate.

Well nope, you're not realistically going to be able to clean up a super blurry face/image.

But for the moderately blurry stuff, you can start to make educated guesses.

Maybe it doesn't magically pop up a name, but maybe it can reduce the suspect pool from a million to say 1000.

I have done a fair amount of research in FR and I'm having a kick out of this silliness.

These glasses will work when used against some basic Viola-Jones classifier from 2001, like the one we've seen on the video. But even they can be trained to recognize these glasses, provided that the leds are placed in an uniform pattern. And of course there are systems that don't rely on feature distances or can work with incomplete measurements.

And sorry Kelvron, the above also applies to your dazzle make-up.

Bob Arctur could use a pair of those.

wearable infrared led camera jamming has been around for a damned long time.

you can also use them for quick, dirty, and cheap night vision for under $20.

Ski and Richard Nixon masks will still work though, right?

No, but they're trying really hard: http://gizmodo.com/5953601/incredible-csi-enhance-technology-fixes-un f ocused-photos

Maybe in the future...maybe never.

Yeah, those glasses wouldn't draw anyone's attention.
