Do these jeans…

It’s used by shopping malls.
Law enforcement.
In China they use it in banks, transportation.

I’m talking about face recognition.
The use of technology to match faces with identities.
But it can do much more than that.

AI algorithms are used to analyze facial expressions.
And detect ethnicity, level of intelligence, and more.

This is a powerful tool to have at our disposal.
There are many concerns, of course.

I can see this tool really be misused around holidays.
The time when you are going from one holiday party to another.
Delicious food, chocolates, cookies, and more of the same.

At some point, your jeans are getting too snug.
You turn to your significant other, and ask,
“Do these jeans make me look fat?”

You get the obligatory, “Of course not!”
But then that face-reading tool counteracts with, “Liar! Liar!”
Ruining a perfectly good relationship : )

On a more serious note, this indeed is a powerful tool.
To prevent misuses we need to have built-in safety measures.

Face recognition technology has great many uses.
Including detecting and diagnosing rare genetic conditions.
And can help people with autism.
