The Facebook project known as Deep Face can decern the accuracy of the true identity of any picture of you. DeepFace AI system is now powerful enough to spot users in the 400 million photos uploaded to the social network every single day.Facebook is claiming good intentions with the Deep Face program. Facebook claims that instead of tagging users in embarrassing and incriminating photos without their permission, users will be able to first see the photos they are appearing in and then have the choice to blur out their faces.The Deep Face program works for strangers’ pictures as well as ones from friends, but users can only see the identities of people they already know.
But with good or bad intentions, Facebook holds all the cards and will still be able to identify you in any picture and hold on to that very valuable personal data. Additionally, other entities who are researching similar technology specifically the government and private companies such as Google may very well have access to this data as well.
