Facebook has a new feature that uses facial recognition to automatically identify and tag people in photos uploaded by friends. Creepy or cool?
I'm a recovering stalker... I only stalk on weekends. Call 1800-STALK if you want me to stalk you.
@clone2384: good point
Cool but at the same time stalkerish.
Imagine what the government has if this is free.
It is very creepy. More like a creepy cool. It is kinda cool how it can do that, but the computer or facebook shouldnt memorize what we look like!
New technology! Let's poke it with our SPEARS! why can't we have the good old days back where people lived to be 40?
It makes it way easier to tag people when you have a huge album of pictures soooooo.... I don't really care if Facebook knows what I look like. :-/
Very very cool. At last "the future" is beginning to give us signs it's almost here. Finally!!!
I think its flippen cool!! And btw idiots in I robot they were programmed to attack god ur dumb
I have no problem appreciating creepy&cool as a class of gadgetry unto itself. This tech is in that boat.
@Gelidity: Well played.
Aside from that, I was already upset at Facebook and all the theories around it, and now this? Thanks SoH...
You obviously have never seen I Robot
I havnt heard of this yet. Creepy def.
I don't want my friends to tag pictures of me. I certainly do want it done automatically. Invasion of privacy....anyone?
Shut up CS, and stop being stupid. A robot could never turn against a human, same reason a coffee maker can't monitor the stimulus, it wasn't designed/programed to.
All hail our robot over lords.
It doesn't automatically tag people. It's not that good. It can recognize a face but not who's it is. It makes guesses, but it can't tag someone without human confirmation, thus it is not creepy.
I wonder what it says about twins?
NEW WORLD ORDER
it's amazing technology so it's useful
