Correcting the bias of face recognition technology – establishing an inclusive recognition model

siteadmin | security

There are shortcomings in face recognition technology, especially for people of color or gender. In order to create a more fair face recognition system, Fb’s recent AI team announced a fairer algorithm in the F8 sharing conference. In addition, the team also found that the industry found photos and colors of white males when looking for photos to train the machine. The proportion of photos of races and women is not 1:1, which also causes artificial intelligence to deviate in the recognition of human faces, which also led to serious deviations in Amazon Rekognition.

Fb’s announcement also represents the “discrimination” problem that technology can solve face recognition with technology, and people do not need to be excluded because of systematic deviations, and even fear the use of technology.

Use 2FA to Guarantee Safety

From time to time, I hear about the theft of Whatsapp, Facebook, email accounts, etc. How can we strengthen security? The following tips can enhance the functionality of Security System:

Do not use very low risk passwords

Some people will choose some numbers or strings that are easier to remember for fear of forgetting the password, or even use the order on the keyboard to make passwords such as “QWERT”, “12345”, “ASDFG”, etc. These passwords are extremely easy to be cracked by hackers, so it is better to choose some longer (8 characters or more) or even use numbers plus letters to make passwords, such as: “A1v4dOPB”, “GtBVi8La”, etc. As for memory I suggest that these strings represent an important stage of your life or something you like, such as: “Imm150619” (I’m getting married on 15 June 2019, I got married on June 15, 2019)

Enable double password verification

Double password authentication is very common. For example, online banking, you need a security code to log in to your account or transfer money. However, in general passwords, you can generally choose to use SMS or use third-party security coding functions such as Google Authenticator. . I don’t recommend that readers use SMS because this technology is outdated and easily intercepted by third parties. It is very insecure, so it is better to use apps like Google Authenticator.
