These patterned glasses are all it takes to fool AI-powered facial recognition

The researchers have shown how it’s possible to perturb facial recognition with patterned eyeglass frames. Image: Carnegie Mellon University Researchers have developed patterned eyeglass frames that can trick facial-recognition algorithms into seeing someone else’s face. The printed frames allowed three researchers from Carnegie Mellon to successfully dodge a facial-recognition system based on machine-learning 80 percent of the time. Using certain variants of the frames, a white male was also able to fool the algorithm into mistaking him for movie actress Milla Jovovich, while a South-Asian female tricked it into seeing a Middle Eastern male. The research may offer relief to anyone concerned by the increasing use of facial-recognition technology by law enforcement. A recent study found that facial-recognition databases used by US law enforcement contained images of 117 million US…
