Microsoft Corp. Built back inthe database known as MS Celeb at one point contained 10 million images featuring aboutpeople, said to be the largest database of its kind. Such images can be pulled from the internet under the Creative Commons license, meaning people could have ended up in the database without knowing about it.
The dataset of more than 10 million images had been linked to China's crackdown on ethnic Muslims. The use of artificial intelligence and facial recognition in dense crowd spatial-temporal technology was part of a live demonstration at the Horizon Robotics exhibit during CES Microsoft has quietly taken down a massive facial recognition database containing more than 10 million images of roughlypeople.
It's only natural to be a little skeeved out by the idea that the government is slurping up your private data behind the scenes, but there's a very public piece of your data being collected as well: the look on your face. There's already a national database of over million faces, and the Washington Post reports that it's slowly turning into the ultimate police tool. The database, assembled years ago to help fight prevent drivers-license fraud, isn't limited to just criminals, and it's completely searchable thanks to facial recognition tech. Generally, there's no need for a court order or warrant to make a search, just "law enforcement purposes," which is about as vague as it gets.
He wasn't pushed on surveillance companies operating on the platform. When Mark Zuckerberg appeared before the House Energy and Commerce Committee last week in the aftermath of the Cambridge Analytica revelationshe tried to describe the difference between "surveillance and what we do. Privacy activists are suitably alarmed.
We really are living in the future, with the growth and fast development of face recognition technology. It all started with the hardware, Android made face unlock a public feature starting with Android 4. Humble beginnings indeed, the technology was further refined by Apple in its iPhone X device inthat was when Cupertino was able to improve the technology to make it immune from 2D picture vulnerability in ICS, thanks to its 3d scanning and flood illuminator sensors.
Microsoft just quietly deleted a facial recognition database of more than 10 million images of aroundpeople — most of them known celebrities — Engadget reports. The images were pulled from Creative Commons databases, but the subjects in the 10 million images were not asked for consent, as the Financial Times reports. The dataset, along with two other massive and very similar databases hosted by Duke and Stanford University researchers, was discovered by Adam Harveya Berlin-based artist and researcher.
The database, also known as MS Celeb, stored images scraped via internet search engines and videos under the Creative Commons license that allows the re-use of the photos for academic research, the CNET media reported. MS Celeb, which was originally published inwas reportedly the largest public facial recognition dataset in the world before it was taken down, and the images were gathered and used without the consent of the picture owners. The report said the database was used to train facial recognition systems around the world and could be accessed by military researchers. The database was first reported by the London-based Financial Times, which contained images of what the daily called "arguably private individuals.

Microsoft has unexpectedly pulled a gigantic facial recognition database containing photos of people's faces from the internet, but traces of the data trove remain online. If you've ever uploaded photos of yourself to the internet under a creative commons license—which allows for re-use under certain conditions—they may already have been used to train AI programs to recognize human faces. Microsoft released MS-Celeb-1M, a dataset of roughly 10 million photos fromindividuals collected from the internet in
