NFA: Or just tilt your head to the right or left by about 30 degrees and nearly all FR software won't recognize your face.
theorellior: NFA: Or just tilt your head to the right or left by about 30 degrees and nearly all FR software won't recognize your face.Have you ever tried walking around with your head at a 30º angle?
lordargent: Mugato : they can't use a blurry image of your face and run it through the world-wide database to determine your identityActually, 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".// different team working on the same concept ... first found on a google search.

traylor: 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.
Mugato: 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.
