Think about this for a minute

  1. How many photos people take
  2. How many people are in all those photos unintentionally

There are a lot of scenarios where candid photos include people outside the intended subject of the photo. Think about photos in tourist areas, crowds at stadiums, shots of friends with lots of background, photos at night clubs or cafes or selfies.. The amount of people in photos is a n to n relationship. Now think about how many of those photos will include people that the photographer doesn’t know explicitly.


Facebook’s Deppface project has reported that it’s facial recognition software has the ability to match faces with varying conditions such as light and angle to a 97.25% accuracy. That’s astoundingly good.

Unfortunately all Facebook can do with this technology is detect and suggest faces and people when Facebook users upload their photos. A pretty straightforward use of this technology.
