Ny app der gør det hele en hel del værre - FindFace.
Appen gør du kan tage et billede af en tilfældig gruppe mennesker, og så kan appen finde personen via dennes billeder på de sociale netværk.
Pt findes den kun i Rusland og fungerer ikke på facebook, men der kommer uden tvivl noget tilsvarende.
“Three million searches in a database of nearly 1bn photographs: that’s hundreds of trillions of comparisons, and all on four normal servers. With this algorithm, you can search through a billion photographs in less than a second from a normal computer,” said Kabakov, during an interview at the company’s modest central Moscow office. The app will give you the most likely match to the face that is uploaded, as well as 10 people it thinks look similar.
Kabakov says the app could revolutionise dating: “If you see someone you like, you can photograph them, find their identity, and then send them a friend request.” The interaction doesn’t always have to involve the rather creepy opening gambit of clandestine street photography, he added: “It also looks for similar people. So you could just upload a photo of a movie star you like, or your ex, and then find 10 girls who look similar to her and send them messages.”

This clarification is certainly important, but it does not change much.
