Facebook researchers have announced the development of a new AI system that will assist in de-identifying peoples faces.
While you would originally think that Facebook would be working on an facial recognition software that is designed to identify peoples faces, that's exactly the opposite of what they doing. A new announcement out of Facebook Research shines a light on a new AI system that is designed to ever so slightly distort peoples faces.
Above you can see an example of Jennifer Lawrence's face being distorted. From the image, you can see what the AI generated isn't that different when compared to the original, but is different enough that facial recognition technology would have a much harder time identifying its her. This new technology is designed to assist people in keeping their identification secure from third-party facial recognition software that could potentially scam users.
