Facebook: Facial Recognition 2.0

We know that Facebook already uses facial recognition technology and suggests tags on photos uploaded by us; Google has similar technology for its Google+ social network. But last month Facebook published explaining the capabilities of their new AI(artificial intelligence) system called DeepFace. 

Now the interesting part is that if humans compare 2 photos and answer if both have the same person in it, there is a 97.53% probability of getting it right. DeepFace comes very close at 97.25% probability of answering this correctly.

“its almost as good as humans”
