#FacialRecognition: where are we today? Future?


FacialRecognition! Where are we today?

Not just Phone/SmartPhone, wherever in use or to be, how capable is the current set / technology & #AI today in terms of FaceDetection & FacialRecognition?

e.g.: Can a #iPhone/X (if not #LGPhone) detect a face damaged/burnt? Can #AADHAAR detect & authenticate a damaged/burnt face correctly?

Condition: facial security was set before the incident. 

Can an acid attack survivor, burns/accident/attack survivor be able to unlock/lock the device / pass the authentication in any security/ID?

How’s Google, Amazon, Microsoft or even any start-up or entity in this context?

Google’s AI over drawing(freehand on-screen) face detection I had tried online a few months back, but not to the expectation. It gave me a different result of a non-living object!

Is it safe to conclude that in case of facial makeover, transplant or any mutation it will go undetected?

It’s not about using mask scenarios, but real incidents.

What about patients with memory loss and so on?

Machine Learning be in this direction.

Gone Cases: Eyes/Iris if damaged. Fingers if gone? Voice/Speech: if sore throat or gone?

The nations / govt. & military/defence/security should have mechanism to detect a false face / impersonation.

That should be the roadmap. The future.

iOS and ICS more than just Apple-Google! Is it just some coincidence?


Man! Is it just coincidence or what!? Android 4- ICS. We had iOS4 for a good long time. Apple showered iOS5, though the phone name remains iPhone4S. Uhhhh…Google closing in on the features and versions of their OS with Apple’s iOS! Well, ICS (if not iCS) will be their base now!
Patterns:
iOS – ICS (pronunciation; and vowel ‘O’ replaced with the consonant ‘C’)
AppleGoogle (aka Android – well did they deliberately put an ‘A’; and -le postfix of course as in Apple; consonant ‘G’ against vowel ‘A’; ‘o’ – a vowel repeats twice against the twice-occurring consonant ‘p’!? Of course extra ‘g’. Also, both the companies started from something else and now famous for successful mobile phones and the implementation )

Funnier Crazy Variations: pronouncing iO hmmm Yo, WoW; or more to say Ohhhh! (expressing an Yo/Wow factor in their design and overall end product use experience)
(well, in the Southern Indian languages, hmmm Aiyyo, in Odia: Aai, Ohhh; in Marathi, Aai Ga; in the northern Indian languages: Aai O)

Pronouncing IC, hmmm… I See! (meaning I can see they are good, too)

Packaging further, iOS and ICS both have S (oops! even the non-soft and hardcore Microsoft has S,too – Windows and they have not relinquished the S factor from the mobile OS, too keeping it the same name Windows, if not windoWS nor iWS!) and with their S factor, they have all got YeS from the owners, (app) developers and most crucially the users – end users!
And look at the S factor in the name of the co-founders!
Apple: STEVE Jobs (SJ)
Google: SERGEY Brin (SB)
(let’s not go into Microsoft’s CEO STEVE Ballmer; Well, some S have to be meant for Success!)
