Cloud-Powered Facial Recognition Is Terrifying | The Atlantic
"By harnessing the vast wealth of publicly available cloud-based data, researchers are taking facial recognition technology to unprecedented levels. I never forget a face," goes the Marx Brothers one-liner, "but in your case, I'll be glad to make an exception." Unlike Groucho Marx, unfortunately, the cloud never forgets. That's the logic behind a new application developed by Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute and Google that's designed to take a photograph of a total stranger and, using the facial recognition software PittPatt, track down their real identity in a matter of minutes.

It was admitted that this "facial recognition" on "bin Laden" must have occurred after he was killed as they killed him as soon as they went through the door. (Quotes around "bin Laden" because that raid is not credible. The worlds most wanted man surprised in his underwear, without his... more... - Berthe
Furthermore, under the best possible conditions, a photograph of Sanjay Gupta taken for the purpose of doing a piece on facial recognition, in good lighting and full face, the match was only 70%. http://ac360.blogs.cnn.com/2011... Could you bring a 70% match into court? But you can kill someone with a 70% match, probably less. - Berthe

不蛮您说,我祖上两代人都是研发火车的,搞了六十年,也就是到了东风十几,好多年前,搞动车了,当时我第一次在日尔曼坐ICE,当年我凭着感觉觉得二十年内搞不起来,差距太大了,反正我是不信的,但后来,这果然是个奇迹

chihchun says Google+ 果然是阿宅工程師設計的東西,小圈圈機制反應隱私保護 (其實社交小圈圈本身是重疊或模糊的,以圈圈為出發點會限制資訊流動,並複雜到無法使用)。鼓勵缺乏計畫的社交模式,美其名驚喜是增添生活情趣 (其實是這些人生勝利組不懂一般人這麼無聊,上網沒有目標沒有規劃好的時間表)
