Face Recongition, NOT

Don't believe the hype.

I spoofed this analysis eight ways to Sunday. If this is the state of the art, we've got another generation to go before we can do even basic stuff. This thing is so pathetically bad, I don't even know why they bother. It may as well be random.

As you know, I am white white white. The face analyzer found me to be a Korean/Chinese mix. Of course, I didn't have a perfect picture to analyze, but I also put up a picture from my archives (of a white supremacist, a mug shot, just about perfect according to the criteria)....mostly East Indian, said the analzyer. Oh well, try again.

Funny -- I'm white white white, too, and it determined that I am a mix of Southeast Asian and Chinese. Pfft.
