Glasses to Combat Facial Recognition Systems
Facial recognition to prompt more in security systems and monitoring: a boon for some, but a gross violation of privacy for some Japanese researchers who intend to counter the most advanced systems.
Facial recognition modules are currently not limited to intelligence or national security agencies, they are directly integrated with camera stores, and even on Facebook. Also, some Japanese researchers have developed a pair of glasses that can block facial recognition of most cameras. The principle is simple since the glasses eventually incorporate infrared emitters that serve jammers.
Invisible to the naked eye, infrared LEDs are particularly well received by digital sensors, there has to point the camera of your smartphone to the diodes of the TV remote control to see. Also, by positioning a plurality of said LEDs on a spectacle frame, the system disrupts the reconnaissance cameras and prevents the identification of the wearer.
And if you doubt the prototype, know that several companies have already expressed their interest in this technology for future use. In addition, researchers already announced that it will be possible to propose pairs of glasses so in versions closer to traditional glasses at prices approaching $ 1 per unit. In addition, if you think that simply wearing a simple pair of sunglasses to trick facial recognition modules, Japanese researchers have shown that the simple module in Picasa was able to manage up to 5 different types of glasses, and several angles. Apart from secret agents and other individuals wishing to remain anonymous at all times, Stars could adopt this technology to fight against the intrusion of paparazzi in their private lives.
