Face Tracker: A New Technology Of Facebook| PakistanTribe.comSAN FRANCISCO – A new technology has been introduced by Facebook which recognizes faces in photographs even if they are hidden.

“In the absence of a clear, high-resolution frontal face, we rely on a variety of subtle cues from other body parts, such as hair style, clothes, glasses, pose and other context. We can easily picture Charlie Chaplin’s mustache, hat and cane or Oprah Winfrey’s curly volume hair,” Facebook said while presenting a paper.

“Yet, examples like these are beyond the capabilities of even the most advanced face recognizers.”

But Facebook’s latest facial recognition technology is supreme to all.

The Menlo Park, Calif Company says that it can identify people with 83% accuracy using a method it calls PIPER, or pose never changing person recognition, that looks for tell-tale details.

Facebook has tested this technology on photos from public Flicker albums.

Different consumer groups have argued that Facebook and other companies like this need to take permission from the people to use this advance technology of face recognition to identify individuals.

Previous week, the groups abandoned talks with technology companies to create a voluntary code of conduct against the controversial technology.
