Facebook’s face recognition software is now 97.5 per cent accurate

Facebook wants to increase revenue by encouraging engagement, so it has invented DeepFace, a feature with a sinister name and the ability to recognise and tag a face in a photo with an accuracy rate of 97.25 per cent. This isn’t taking place in a far-off future: DeepFace is now being trailed in the US as an opt-in feature, although it is not yet useable in the UK.

That means every photo of you put on Facebook, whether flattering or incriminating, could potentially be linked to you by Facebook, even if it never appears on your profile.
