Topic: Facial Recognition
Facebook AI Research says it's created a machine learning system for de-identification of individuals in video. Startups like D-ID and a number of previous works have made de-identification technology for still images, but this is the first one that works on video. In initial tests, the method was able to thwart state-of-the-art facial recognition systems.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are exploiting state DMV records for facial recognition data without the knowledge or permission of drivers.
The thief had reportedly used his ID, which didn't have a photo.
International travelers can expect to see more facial recognition and other biometric technologies per the latest national security strategy document.
