This Facial Recognition App Can Tell Others All About You With Just One Picture

The facial recognition app draws data from a base of billions of images its company claimed that it obtained from millions of websites

If you meet someone on the street and want to know who he or she is, all you have to do nowadays is to take a picture of the person and upload it to the facial recognition app of Clearview.

The technology that powers the app is not something too strange. Clearview has combined different tech to make an extremely handy tool for investigating.

The app has been available to over 600 customers since last year; however, not anyone can have access to it. The app has an accuracy rate of more than 75%.

That is not everything the app can do. It also provides the users with links to the place the matching picture can be found, making it possible for them to retrieve more information.

The facial recognition app is now available for government agencies in Canada and the US only.

The next step for the company is to make an augmented reality pair of glasses that the wearers can use to identify anyone they see. It can be as quick as Googling a ransom name.

The AI of Clearview can be used to catch hiding wanted criminals but people have concerns of someone with an ill intention will use the app to conduct shady businesses.

Clearview was founded by Richard Schwartz New York’s former collaborator for a former mayor of the city, Hoan Ton-That, an Australian, and Rudy Giuliani.

Peter Thiel, PayPal’s cofounder, has poured in $200,000 to develop the facial recognition app.

A facial recognition app for Android and iOS is not something hard to find, but the practice is still controversial as it might violate people’s privacy.
