Facebook will delete over 1 billion digital face recognition templates

Facebook has announced that it will no longer use facial recognition on its platform, allowing a person to be identified, since 2010, based on photos or videos posted on this social network.

The California group implicated in several scandals has also indicated that it will suppress the backlog of facial recognition information relating to one billion users, according to a statement.

“This change will represent one of the most significant developments in the use of facial recognition in the history of this technology.”, stressed the company’s vice president of artificial intelligence, Jerome Bisenti.

“More than a third of Facebook users daily have facial recognition turned on and can be recognized”, specially.

So more than a billion digital templates for facial recognition will be blocked. This unexpected decision means that some popular tools on the network will no longer work, for example, the algorithm will fail to identify the people in the photo when someone posts it.

Facebook is facing a series of charges linked to a former employee’s disclosure of internal documents. Francis Hogan, in remarks at the US Congress and European Parliament, and now, at the Web Summit being held in Lisbon, ensured that the social media company puts its profits before the safety of its users.
