Facebook alters video to make people invisible to facial recognition
Facebook AI Research says it’s created the first machine learning system that can stop a facial recognition network from identifying people in videos.
In initial tests, the method was able to thwart state-of-the-art facial recognition systems. The AI for automatic video modification doesn’t need to be retrained to be applied to each video. It maps a slightly distorted version on a person’s face in order to make it difficult for facial recognition technology to identify a person.
