Hackers reportedly bypass Samsung Galaxy S8's 'airtight' iris scanner

Mashable

Researchers at the Chaos Computer Club (via Motherboard) claim to have bypassed the iris scanner on Samsung's Galaxy S8 using a simple photo of a person's iris and an ordinary contact lens. Galaxy S8 users can choose to set up the iris scanner, which is more secure than the face recognition, to unlock the phone or authenticate Samsung Pay mobile payments. The biggest advantage to using an iris scanner compared to face recognition is that ordinary photos usually can't fool it. How many images -- adjusted for image quality, brightness, contrast, etc.


Artificial Intelligence can now use a person's image and audio to create fake videos

#artificialintelligence

London: Oxford scientists have developed a new artificial intelligence system that can create fake videos of a person by using their still image and an audio clip. As the audio clip plays, the system then manipulates the mouth of the person in the still image so that it looks as if they are speaking. Although the results are not absolutely perfect, researchers believe that the software could soon make realistically fake videos only a single click away. Given enough time, experts can already create fake videos that are virtually indistinguishable from genuine ones.


Real-life Robocop starts work in Dubai tomorrow onward

Daily Mail

'The launch of the world's first operational Robocop is a significant milestone for the Emirate and a step towards realising Dubai's vision to be a global leader in smart cities technology adoption', said Brigadier-General Khalid Nasser Al Razzouqi, Director-General of Smart Services for the police in Dubai. Brigadier Khalid Nasser Al Razouqi, general director of the smart services department at Dubai Police, added: 'We are looking to make everything smart in Dubai Police. Dubai Police, IBM's supercomputer, Watson, and Google have all contributed to the unique design of the robot police officer. Dubai Police, IBM's supercomputer, Watson, and Google have all contributed to the unique design of the robot police officer Real-life RoboCops will be patrolling the streets of Dubai alongside police from May.


AI can doctor videos to put words in the mouths of speakers

New Scientist

A new system takes a still image of a person and an audio clip, and uses them to create a doctored video of the person speaking the audio. The results are still a little rough around the edges, but the software could soon make realistically fake videos only a single click away. At the moment, these systems focus on changing the shape of the mouth, but it's only a matter of time before they can also change facial expressions and posture, says Alex Champandard, co-founder of creative.ai, "Pretty soon we will have trouble distinguishing between real and fake video," says Champandard. Given enough time, experts can already create fake videos that are virtually indistinguishable from genuine ones.

By using facial expression analysis, you are able to quantify not only facial expressions, but also the emotions of a respondent.


Airports may use face recognition to screen US citizens

Engadget

Right now, the US is trotting out an airport security plan revolving around facial recognition. However, Customs and Border Protection now wants to expand the effort to include virtually every situation where you normally need an ID -- and that could include scanning US citizens. The existing plan has facial recognition systems tossing out photos of US citizens as soon as they're recognized. Current facial recognition technology requires a clear, emotionless and well-lit view of your face, and you don't get all of those very often at the airport.

You Cannot Encrypt Your Face

The Atlantic

The night of December 16, 1773, dozens of Massachusetts colonists quietly boarded three ships and dumped what would now be close to $1 million worth of British tea into Boston Harbor. It was a crime to dump British tea into Boston harbor. Historically, surveillance technology has tracked our technology: our cars, our computers, our phones. Face recognition technology tracks our bodies.


A Face in any Form: New Challenges and Opportunities for Face Recognition Technology

IEEE Computer

Despite new technologies that make face detection and recognition more sophisticated, long-recognized problems in security, privacy, and accuracy persist. Refining this technology and introducing it into new domains will require solving these problems through focused interdisciplinary efforts among developers, researchers, and policymakers.

When you have a robot named Pudding, you know that you are in for a cute overload. Pudding was created by Roobo to be your child's best friend – it tells stories, plays music, teaches facts and vocabulary, and even reminds them to brush their teeth. Roobo also has a robotic dog named Dogmy that is a lot smarter than real dogs, but unfortunately not fluffy enough. Dogmy uses face recognition technology to warn if there is an intruder in the house and has a number of other intelligent features.
