Facebook ends face recognition and deletes the entire template database

Recently, privacy and user data protection has been a big topic. Social network Facebook it has caught this for insufficient protection and inappropriate approaches several times, and one of the controversial features was the face recognition system. He originally marked the found faces himself, which was not to everyone’s taste and it could cause some people considerable inconvenience (for example, when they were automatically marked on unflattering pictures from the party and the like). Later, the system switched to voluntary connection to it, so that it was eventually completely terminated.

Company Meta, which includes Facebook and other projects originally belonging to Facebook, has now decided to abolish face recognition on the network. It will therefore not be possible to use it on request. At the same time, it should delete a database with more than a billion templates that were used to recognize faces. It will also affect the Automatic Alt Text (AAT) feature, which allowed blind people or people with severe eye defects to describe who is in the picture. Now they only know how many people are in the picture, but not who.
