When Computer Vision Meets Hindu Gods!! – Towards Data Science


As being said by none other than J. K. Rowling, the ninth-best-selling fiction author of all time, that "We do not need Magic to transform our world,we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already.We have the power to Imagine better.".These particular lines took me to a journey of making a project which I had never been thought of,a project which I had never been imagined of.Just like all the other people, I too started looking at every nook and corner for ideas,starting with the project which I published a while ago named "Real Time Object Detection with TensorFlow Detection Model",but I was unable to come up with something extraordinary .

Cybersecurity researchers breach Windows 10 facial recognition with a photo


Researchers at the German IT Security company SySS GmbH successfully fooled the Windows 10 facial recognition system by using a printed photo of the user's face.

Can Cameras and Machines Recognize Lying in Your Face?


The code has been copied to your clipboard. One of the most popular tools on Apple's new iPhone X is its facial recognition system. This latest iPhone gives users the power to open the device just by looking at it. The smartphone has performed well in tests set up to trick it into opening for an unapproved user. The same kind of facial recognition system is also used for other purposes.

Watch: Bkav Researcher Beats Apple's Facial Recognition System

International Business Times

Just 10 days after the official release of Apple's iPhone X, security researchers believe they have developed a method to defeat the device's Face ID facial recognition system that was promised to be the next big step in security. In a blog post and video published over the weekend, researchers at Vietnamese security firm Bkav laid claim to being the first to trick the iPhone X's new biometric authentication feature into unlocking. While the method has yet to be replicated or confirmed by any other experts, it does represent the first apparent vulnerability in what Apple was hoping to be a bulletproof security feature. The method used by the researchers to supposedly defeat Apple's next generation of biometric security was decidedly low tech. Bkav's team used commonly accessible materials to create a mask that was able to convince Face ID of its legitimacy.

Beating the iPhone X Face ID Is Hard. We Know, Because We Tried


When Apple announced the iPhone X last month--its all-screen, home-button-less, unlock-with-a-look flagship--it placed an enormous bet on facial recognition as the future of authentication. For hackers around the world, Face ID practically painted a glowing target on the phone: How hard could it be, after all, to reproduce a person's face--which sits out in public for everyone to see--and use it to bypass the device's nearly unbreakable encryption without leaving a trace? Pretty damn hard, it turns out. A month ago, almost immediately after Apple announced Face ID, WIRED began scheming to spoof Apple's facial recognition system. We'd eventually enlist an experienced biometric hacker, a Hollywood face-caster and makeup artist, and our lead gadget reviewer David Pierce to serve as our would-be victim.

Apple to add FaceID to ALL iPhones

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Apple's radical FaceID system is set to come to the entire iPhone line next year, it has been claimed. The firm is set to abandon its current TouchID fingerprint system entirely, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that all 2018 iPhone models will move to Face ID, according to 9to5Mac. Kuo also predicted that the iPad Pro would gain Face ID next year. Just last month he issued a note in which he said the future of Face ID depended largely upon consumer reaction to the iPhone X.

Apple iPhone X could be delayed due to 3D camera problem

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Apple's radical FaceID system is still causing major production issues for the firm just weeks before its launch, it has been claimed. The firm's suppliers are still struggling to perfect manufacturing of the iPhone X's TrueDepth camera and 3D facial recognition system, according to Japan's Nikkei Asian Review. Jeff Pu, an analyst with Taipei-based Yuanta Investment Consulting, believes the problems could mean Apple will face even bigger shortages of its flagship handset than previously thought. The latest forecast from Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI says Apple still cannot make enough of the handsets due to technical problems with the front facing TrueDepth camera it uses to scan people's faces. Multiple reports have claimed it has taken more time to assemble the TrueDepth system's so-called'Romeo' module than the'Juliet' module.

Apple's FaceID Could Be a Powerful Tool for Mass Spying


This Tuesday Apple unveiled a new line of phones to much fanfare, but one feature immediately fell under scrutiny: FaceID, a tool that would use facial recognition to identify individuals and unlock their phones. Jake Laperruque (@jakelaperruque) is senior counsel for privacy and security issues at The Constitution Project. He previously served as a fellow for New America's Open Technology Institute and The Center for Democracy and Technology. Unsurprisingly, this raised major anxiety about consumer privacy given its profound ramifications: Retailers already crave facial recognition to monitor consumers, and without legally binding terms, Apple could use FaceID to track consumer patterns at its stores, or develop and sell data to others. It's also possible that police would be able to more easily unlock phones without consent by simply holding an individual's phone up to his or her face.
