Indexing Faces on Instagram


I just wanted to build something cool using machine learning on a bunch of public images. But after showing it to a couple of my "friends" they thought it was too creepy and Instagram might sue me for breaking their platform policy and I should stop doing it. So, I did what most sane people would do - write a blog post detailing how I did it, and open source it. Whats the worst that could happen? Err.. that's a good question.
