Gipface, that is videomodels created by neural network in automatic mode from real-life stories to distinguish was impossible, even if you get paid good money. Talking about fakes, which became kind of viral recently of the song “Grass at home” performed by Elon musk. These videos from actual algorithms are very inaccurate, as evidenced by the results of the competition held by Facebook.
Even in the news there is a nice moment for Russia — the most accurate algorithm was the programmer from Dagestan, and in third place was the Russian program, developed by Ntech Lab. Your Facebook contest launched in December. More than two thousand participants presented 35 000 models, which were to determine deepface.
Better result — the average accuracy of slightly more than 65%, it showed a model of Selim Seferbekov, programmer from Dagestan, who now works in the Belarusian company Mapbox. In third place, with a score slightly worse, was the Russian Ntech Lab, which specializiruetsya on the creation of algorithms for face recognition. In terms of competition Seferbekov received a prize of half a million dollars, Ntech Lab — $100,000.
Their development, again according to the contest conditions are published in the public domain, so that everyone could improve their algorithms, however, for the system, which should automatically detect and delete fake content, accuracy is too low so that it was somehow to be trusted. The same Seferbekov already told the American journalists that he is not too worried about the possible surge in malicious activity with the use of diptyque. When the technology was relatively massive, the researchers assumed that it will be massively used for disinformation, but this has not yet happened. Even Facebook said, while deepface cannot be considered a serious problem. However, the company still creates their own algorithm, to improve which it will also use developments from the competition.
And a big disappoiSC for fans of revolutionary technologies. Company Light, which some years ago shook the camera with 16 lenses, and promised to turn over the market of mobile photography, decided to exit the smartphone business. The representatives of the company said the edition of Android Authority. The fate of Light followed five years after the demonstration of the apparatus L16 with 16 built-in lenses. The idea was that by combining images taken with different lenses, in order to reproduce the capabilities of the full-sized machines in terms of understanding the depth of the scene.
a Year ago, the Chinese HMD released in partnership with your Light the camera phone has five cameras — Nokia 9 PureView. Nokia then said that their device is able to distinguish between 12 layers of depth, in contrast to traditional software for portrait mode in a typical smartphones, which recognizes only two layers. Well, the Nokia, and L16 have been found similar problems — the images are too heavy, does the technology unstable, often wrong, and it seems that the Light has decided to recognize the failure. It turns out that Google release path when a picture is taken with one camera, and then improving software turned out cheaper and better. But the closure of Light speech does not go yet, although the company did not explain what she going to do. On its website, says about working on the computer vision technology for drones. In addition, the company has notable investors: superposition Leica, and, for example, technology giant Foxconn. So that in the future the technology may still appear on some other devices.
