Facebook 10-year challenge: ideal for training bots

Posted on Wednesday, January 16 2019 @ 12:45:54 CET by


Is Facebook's 10-year challenge a harmless meme or a sinister plot to train AI algorithms to be able to recognize you even better? While it's fun to show off how you aged to friends, family and randos on the Internet, Wired writer Kate O'Neill warns this sort of thing is also ideal to train facial recognition bots:
Is it bad that someone could use your Facebook photos to train a facial recognition algorithm? Not necessarily; in a way, it’s inevitable. Still, the broader takeaway here is that we need to approach our interactions with technology mindful of the data we generate and how it can be used at scale. I’ll offer three plausible use cases for facial recognition: one respectable, one mundane, and one risky.
Something to ponder about on this Wednesday afternoon.
