Facebook SHUTTING DOWN controversial face recognition program, vows to delete over a BILLION templates

2 Nov, 2021 17:44 / Updated 5 hours ago

Citing “growing concerns” about privacy and ethics, Facebook has announced it will stop using face recognition technology and delete more than a billion individual templates harvested so far from users who opted into the program.
The decision comes as part of “a company-wide move to limit the use of facial recognition in our products,” Jerome Pesenti, Facebook’s VP of Artificial Intelligence, said on Tuesday.

When the feature is discontinued, sometime “in the coming weeks,” more than a billion Facebook users who have opted in will have their facial recognition templates deleted and they will not be automatically recognized, Pesenti explained.

Don't worry ... the NSA already has all the faces and the template that are in the Facebook servers.

In addition the NSA has collected another 10 billion or so face pictures so it's template works even better than Facebook's did!!

The only one that works better than the NSA one is the Chinese one, and they not only have all the Chinese faces, but thanks to stealing Facebook's data have all of Facebook's data too!!
