Deep Mind is a UK company we just acquired; it worked on voice recognition, now it is not good had helped make computers smarter.

Facebook Implemented DeepFace App to Catch Similar Images

Facebook always tries to pick up users personal data, it grows day by day, now it is published an update about its powerful facial verification software “DeepFace” it allows Facebook servers to identify and catch individuals in images with perfect accuracy.

The DeepFace software has name derives from artificial intelligence known as “Deep Learning” (with massive amounts of computational power, machines can now recognize objects and translate speech in real time, Artificial intelligence is finally getting too smart).  According to the source Facebook explained that out of 4 million facial images of over 4,000 people DeepFace can catch and match images of individuals, shadows, position of the head and other complicating factors, it identify  with 97.25 accuracy. So Facebook enter deep and deep in user’s personal data, because security problems, many fake accounts put fake images like political leaders, celebrities, gods and other, it is very difficult to maintain their accounts they comment and share banned content, it is headache to Facebook, then it implements this new software application.

How does the DeepFace work?

This application works 100 percent accuracy if computer is given a image of “X” it is slightly to the right or left, DeepFace can chart that image in 3D format and virtually turns it head forwards. Then it analyzes and produces a “Numeric Chart” of that forward facing physiognomy and searching for same patterns in the database that match with Facebook provided database. In the searching 2 similar charts identify then a match is found. Conclusion is one image used two different users so that account is fake account.

The DeepFace technology helps Facebook it identifies banned and porn content images and removes from Facebook. Wow what a technology Facebook used.

It is simple now to identify faces in Facebook and stop fake accounts.

Few days before Mark Zuckerberg wealth became more and he wants Facebook connect everyone in the world. The project to give internet access through Drones is as same as Google’s own Project Loon. Google want to give net connection to remote areas. If it is successful it spread all over the world, now Facebook also doing same thing but it used drones.

Few days back it buys WhatsApp with $19 billion dollars, it is the biggest deal in the technical field. People thinking internet access with drones is worth than WhatsApp deal.

Google and Facebook one by one wants to occupy high percentage of people around the world to increasing marketing their products, now it is going on healthy competition. Some of the decisions of MarkZuckerberg is not worthy, he wants to declines users login via PCs and Facebook Messenger stops working from yesterday both windows and Firefox these are some unwanted decisions take Facebook, some surveys told  many people left Facebook because of no use of Facebook.
