Facebook’s working on facial verification that’s ‘nearing human-level performance’
Fascinating and scary at the same time.
If Facebook claims are true then computers are about to be on par with humans in this field.
From one side I am extremely excited for these kind of advancements, from a pure technical and technological point of view but from the other side, this could be used for evil.
Facebook is very well positioned to be able to do all these kind of research projects as it has an unbelievably vast amount of relational data.
