Ever imagined Facebook would be capable of matching faces in images with 97.25 per cent accuracy just like humans? Never? Then the time is not far. According to a recent paper published, the social networking giant is working on artificial intelligence software called DeepFace. The new system is being trained using a data set of more than 4 million facial images of 4,000 people.
DeepFace identifies images in two steps. At first the software creates 3D modeling to correct the angle of the face in the picture so that the person is looking forward. Next a replicated neural network makes out a numerical description of the face.
Facebook’s AI Group is all ready to demonstrate DeepFace in June at the Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition.
