Facebook takes on fake profiles with facial recognition tech

Joaquin Quiñonero Candela, director of applied machine learning at Facebook, notes that if you are in a photo and are part of the audience for the post, you'll now be notified, even if you haven't been tagged. However, Facebook notes that if your tag suggestions setting is now set to "none", then your default face recognition setting will be set to "off" and will remain that way until you decide to change it.

The feature, which is powered by Facebook's artificial intelligence technology, will alert users when someone else uploads a photo of them. Using facial recognition technology, Facebook can alert you to any photos in which you're visible regardless of whether or not you've been tagged. Photos you just happen to be in that nobody was ever even going to try to tag you in. If you've already opted out of that feature, you will also be automatically opted out of the new facial recognition features. We're also introducing a way for people who are visually impaired to know more about who is in the photos they encounter on Facebook. Facebook users should be notified through the news feeds about the new feature, and the company will encourage everyone to check their own settings. Users can turn facial recognition on or off on Facebook. That would be a boon for Facebook's People You May Know tool, allowing it to suggest as friends people whose faces appeared in the background of photos it identified you in, or vice versa. The goal of the scanning, according to Facebook, is to alert you if someone has publicly uploaded a photo of you that you don't know about, especially if they are trying to impersonate you.

"We're doing this to prevent people from impersonating others on Facebook", he said.

Browns Showing Fight, But Ravens Hold Lead At Half
Since the bye week, Flacco has passed for 1,150 yards with six touchdowns (one rushing) and only two interceptions. They rank #1 in run defense DVOA, they are fifth in yards per game (96.0), and first in yards per carry (3.3).

Rob Sherman, Facebook's deputy chief privacy officer, wrote about the positive potentials - unlocking phones, logging into bank accounts, making digital payments, organizing photos, finding missing or kidnapped children and helping officials confirm passport photos - and the bad - abuse by law enforcement, potential for racial bias and Big Brother-esque government surveillance.
