In case you want to share photos and videos on internet, but don’t want face recognition engines to identify you, there might be an interesting solution – a digital cloaking filter.
An increasing number of researchers focus on the problem on how to reclaim digital privacy while still participating in the digital world.
Algorithms such as “PrivacyNet”, “AnonymousNet” and “Fawkes” are experimenting with various techniques to prevent facial recognition.
They try to identify the invisible features of faces on photos (relationships between pixels) and then tweaks them, eliminating any commonalities.
When testing with newest algorithms offered by Microsoft, Google am Amazon, the effectiveness of those filters was very successful.
I still think it will be a mouse and cat game, but can’t wait until it is an app or filter to use on my smartphone 🙂
