Sometime this year, Facebook plans to unveil a new facial recognition technology across the site which uses artificial intelligence to scan uploaded photos to analyze and recognize faces based on images previously uploaded to the site. But this is nothing more than a surveillance technique.
According to Natural News, this sneaky surveillance technique will link users to the people they meet in real life all while tracking their whereabouts and social circle even further. And the real kicker? Facebook will roll out this AI deep state mass surveillance under the guise of “protecting your privacy.”
Facebook will roll the controversial plan out all in the name of “protecting your privacy.” Facebook promises to alert users when someone uploads a photo of them to Facebook. This feature supposedly helps users “detect when others might be attempting to use your image as their profile picture.” This feature is just a façade to invade user privacy, as Facebook gets permission to analyze your photos and track your connections and whereabouts. – Natural News
But there is a way to mostly opt out. By default, users will already be giving Facebook permission to use the facial recognition AI if their tag suggestions setting is currently “on.” In order to opt out, the user must switch the tag suggestions setting to “none.”
But even more horrifying, is the fact that we should have known that this was coming. Two and a half years ago, ARS-Technica said that Facebook will eventually be able to recognize you – even when you are facing away.
Facebook researchers have unveiled new research that allows for faces to be more easily recognized based on other contextual information, such as hair style, clothing, and body shape.
The research, which was published on arXiv.org in January 2015, was presented at a conference in Boston earlier this month and first reported by New Scientist on Monday.
According to the researchers, the system, dubbed Pose Invariant PErson Recognition (PIPER), is accurate 83 percent of the time—far higher than the current state-of-the-art, which primarily requires clear, full frontal photos to work well. –ARS Technica
But even though a user didn’t give permission to have their face analyzed, the picture could theoretically be analyzed anyway because it contains the face of someone who had given Facebook permission to analyze their pixels. There’s no way Facebook can ensure users that their photos won’t be analyzed. In the end, there really will be no consent or privacy with this AI facial recognition rollout.
There is no such thing as privacy when using Facebook; or any social media or chat app. All the data that’s shared openly by Facebook users (including pictures, connections, interests, comments, likes, and personal information) is readily compiled and analyzed by algorithms to map out and predict who you are, where you go, what you’ll buy, and much more.
Most Facebook users naively share information rather liberally, only to have their life turned over to surveillance systems, marketing algorithms, and artificial intelligence which is capable of analyzing the pixels in your photos, micromanaging your life interests and dislikes, and tracking your every move.
I am so glad I deleted all of this silly nonsense several years ago!! Wake up folks, do NOT mess wth this sort of garbage. All of those sites are the same.
Really, is any intelligent person actually still using Facebook??
Nope. Quit it three years ago.never got on Twitter or other crap. Got too much to do! I’m not interested in other people’s ramblings. Does that make me antisocial, or smart? ?
Hate to tell you CC, but once you uploaded it to facebook, it’s still there even if you deactivate your account, or try to “Delete it”. I on the other hand, who has never had a facebook account, and have never uploaded any photos to the web have less to worry about. Notice that i said i have less to worry about, not nothing to worry about, that’s because i still have friends, and family who may of uploaded photos with me in them, that i don’t know about. Had a family friend who deleted their facebook account, they went back 2 years later to check on it, guess what everything was still there even though they deleted it.
Anyone stupid enough to use Facebook, Twitter or any other so-called social media and honestly think they are not being spied upon is insane. And even here – all of us – are also being looked at. Think your IP is hidden? Even with the best TOR/onion routing scheme or most any other mechanism you may use – believe me, if the government wants to know YOU – they do.
If you’re using Facebook you have already succumbed. The Deep State loves you, man. LOL
The sad truth is this: Western societies now have such scum floating around in them (third world turd illegal migrants, terrorists, low-class trash who live a life of welfare and crime, violent ethnic gangs, etc.) that we need a bio-identification system equivalent to what China already has. The Chinese have a very effective facial and bio-data scanning system that basically ensures not a single one of their ‘restive’ Muslims can now fart without being known to the authorities.
The technology already exists to DNA sniff, walk gait profile, shadow profile, face shape profile etc. that means it is no longer an acceptable excuse for the police to claim they can’t identify morons on mopeds spraying acid on people. 99% of the street crime in places such as London is easy to identify and prevent if the police use the latest gear.
If it aint the cops getting sprayed with acid they dont give a fook.
No social media for me ever.
Does taping over anything on the phone stop being spied on?
Wait till facebook is linked to traffic cameras and city cams and google maps ect you will be able to stand on a corner and bring up that cam and see your self or better yet with facial find any one out and about via cams useing facebook live? Big brother gonna watch you real good and dont think standing out in the middle of bum fook Egypt gonna help cus satellite tec can read a license plate so why not facial recognition locating and identification via heat signature. Even butt naked
No social media here, don’t need it, don’t want it. this site is as social or anti-social as I get.
I am constantly reading about people getting fired from jobs, kicked out of school, etc… because of facebook posts that come back to haunt them. Add this to surveillance I am surprised there is anyone left using social media.
I keep anonymous page, no friends, no photos on FB just for news. Can’t trace a cutout silhouette issued to me by FB.
