Privacy on Facebook has always been controversial and its latest artificial intelligence algorithm will not be an exception. Facebook’s artificial intelligence team is testing out an algorithm that can recognize people in photos even if they are not looking at the camera.
According to New Scientist, the algorithm is able to identify people by reviewing hairdos, clothing, postures and body shapes. Facebook’s head of artificial intelligence Yann LeCun used CEO Mark Zuckerberg as an example of how the algorithm recognizes fashion preferences since he is known for always wearing a gray T-shirt. Using 40,000 public photos from Flickr, the artificial intelligence team tested the algorithm on photos of people whose faces are visible and photos of people that are looking away. As of right now, the
experimental algorithm is able to identify people with 83% accuracy. Facebook recently presented the experimental algorithm at the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition conference in Boston. Earlier this month, Facebook released a mobile app called Moments. Moments groups photos based on the date of an event you attended with your friends and based on your friends themselves. Once the photos are grouped, you can privately message each batch to your friends. This keeps collections of photos unified between friends, which can be handy when taking photos with a group of friends at a dance club or a wedding. I tested out the app and it is fairly accurate.

It was able to recognize all of my Facebook friends correctly, but the app mistook me for another family
member.

Facebook’s facial recognition technology has beencontroversial since it launched and was banned in Europe five years ago.
Since Facebook does not have an opt-in mechanism for Moments, the app will not be released in Europe yet. LeCun pointed out that this new artificial intelligence technology can be helpful for people that are cautious about privacy.
Hypothetically, this tool could be used to alert someone if a photo of themselves is uploaded to the Internet. If the photo is embarrassing, then it might be worth tweaking your privacy settings or requesting the photo to be taken down.

What are your thoughts about Facebook’s new
algorithm? Do you think it is a privacy violation? Let meknow in the comments section!

Technology never stops to amuse me, this kind of Technology should be adopted by the military or the police to catch criminals. People on Facebook are supposed to enjoy privacy.

that is why facebook is trying to have their own prrivate url/internent server and not the www developed by Tim Berners-lee a former employee of CERN so as to ensure the safety of their data base.
