Hiding From Face-Detection

According to Adam Harvey, a funny hat, symmetrical glasses, a thread of hair that covers the bridge of your nose, and a black-and-white triangle taped to your face, and other unorthodox makeup and accessories may make you look weird, but it also will do something much more useful for camera-shy people or villains, really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like, stop your face from being recognized by computers or cameras.
Harvey’s project, CV Dazzle or Computer Vision Dazzle, is still a theoretical method of avoiding the detection of surveillance cameras and face-detecting technology that has been put into social networking sites such as facebook or twitter.
“I don’t want to be unrealistic about it. It’s a pretty conceptual project but it seems to touch on a subject that people are still trying to figure out, which is how to adapt to living in surveillance societies, where not only are you being watched by government surveillance but by citizen surveillance and social-media-type surveillance.”, Harvey says.
Essentially, CV Dazzle works by obscuring parts of the face that are readable by the computer, like the bridge of your nose or the place between your eyes. If you cover that, Harvey says you will have a good chance of tricking the computers into thinking that you don’t have a face.
