Face Detection – History and Defensive Maneuvers

From 1 to 100 Pixels: Facial Recognition and the Power of Photography

Automated facial recognition with computer programs is one of the tools that help promote video surveillance. However, as with any technical advancement, it did not take long before various defensive maneuvers and tricks started to appear. Can skilled use of make-up or camouflage clothing protect one against face recognition?

Adam Harvey explains in his lecture just how much information can be extracted from a picture with only 100 Pixels. He will present the historic side of the term “Facial Recognition” and expose how researchers and algorithms analyze faces. Mr. Harvey will introduce his self-developed approaches to confuse facial recognition technology, supported by videos of personal experiments developed by the artist and technological analyst.
