Facial recognition is a system of identifying or verifying the identity of a person from an image or video.
- let’s discuss how facial recognition works.
Facial analysis data, allow users to understand where faces exist in an image or video, it also identify the attributes of these faces. For example, the facial recognition software can analyze attributes such as :
- hair color
- eyes open or closed
- the visual geometry of a face
These detected attributes are useful to organize or search through millions of images in seconds using some tags like
- age range
to identify a person facial recognition using either a source image or a unique identifier.
- Who’s using your face?
Facial recognition technologies is a challenge for all companies and organizations especially governments. the facial recognition software needs hundreds of thousands or even millions of images to be trained. Then, 1 or 2 additional photos of an individual will be sufficient to identify them in any other photo or video. A government could easily obtain these either via the internet or via their ID or passport databases. Therefore, there is no point in trying to remove yourself from a database anyway.
