Woman Shocked To Discover Her Co-Worker’s Face Can Unlock Her iPhone

Woman Shocked To Discover Her Co-Worker's Face Can Unlock Her iPhone

Everyone’s been fawning over the iPhone X recently, but here’s something that’s got us a little puzzled and worried about its facial recognition function.

The idea of that security measure, of course, is to make sure nobody but you can unlock your phone. It’s all very science fiction, but it seems more and more like we’re living in the future, so it’s hardly surprising.

But it seems the future isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. For while Apple have said their facial recognition software on the iPhone X is top-notch and that the chances of somebody else being able to unlock your phone is – literally – ‘one in a million’, a woman called Yan has already proved that’s clearly not the case.

Hailing from Nanjing in China, Yan got her hands on an iPhone X, only to discover that her co-worker could easily unlock it with her face, too. Even after a major rejig of the configuration settings.

Amazon Facial Detection Software Identifies Dark-Skinned Females as Male

Amazon’s much-vaunted facial recognition software – currently the subject of a concerted effort to halt its production – regularly identifies dark-skinned females as males, it has emerged.

This is not the first time that Artificial Intelligence has had “problems” with the automatic analysis of dark-skinned people. In 2015, Google was the subject of much media controversy when its Google Photos app regularly identified black people as “gorillas.”

In 2018, Google admitted that it had been unable to solve the auto-identification of black people as “gorillas,” and had therefore resorted to simply preventing Google Photos from ever labelling any image as a gorilla, chimpanzee, or monkey – even pictures of the primates themselves.

For example, the identification of dark-skinned females as males is of course due to the well-known African racial trait of androgyny—the state where there is no clear distinction between male and female in facial appearance.

This racial trait is most clear in Africans of unmixed racial origin, such as these two early 20th Century French postcards from Africa reveal. On the left, a female from the Mogandi tribe in the Congo, and on the right, a male from the Bassoundi tribe, also in the Congo.

If liberals did not deny the reality of race, then software identification errors would not occur. In fact, if liberals did not deny the reality of race, then many problems facing the entire globe would not occur.

White people are called racist for saying colored people look alike, but computer software has the same problem!

Maybe there are some truth to it!

    Også, was learning about the zoo in Danish Duolingo… Eh… Danskelingo? Whatever. Can you tell me why Denmark ended up with biograf as a word for cinema? That was what I learned this morning and found odd. I know it’s off topic, but there aren’t any Bundsmen I can ask Danish things of. Yet.

      Biograf is short for biografteater
      Teater = ‘theater’
      Biografi = ‘biography’

      Verdens ældste stadig fungerende biograf, er Korsør Biograf Teater, som blev grundlagt i 30. januar 1907:

      The oldest Biograf use to be in Germany (now Polackistan).

        The same here, I liked ‘biograf’ when I was a child and early teenager. There was a cheap biograf close to where I grew up, plus a number of them in Copenhagen center.

        If I wanted to see a movie, I might choose drive-in biograf.

        Were the movies Danish, or had (((Hollywood))) infected Denmark by then? Also, please tell me the Danes didn’t let (((Marvel Thor))) into biograferne.

        I watch Danish movies as a child, I remember my school showed Olsenbanden movies doing the 7 week summer vaction. As I came close to teenager age, I watch (((Hollywood))) movies mostly in my local biograf. They were a little old, that was why they were cheap.

        They properly show all the (((Hollywood))) propaganda. I don’t see why, I should go to biograf anytime soon. Not untill we get our own movie industry.

        I have collected almost all the good old Danish movies. Olsenbanden, Familien Gyldenkål, Slå Først Frede, etc..

        Awesome. I have some old German NSDAP films, and Metropolis. I don’t know the year American films began to suck, but it’s been a log road. I think the 2000s is when the big gay really clamped down… But they’ve never been pefect, given all the film company names echo. Hard.

        (((They))) were there doing silent black and white movies, (((Charly Chaplin))) etc., but that was not a good platform for what they do today.
        They could properly not get away with as much 25 years ago, blah blah blah.

        I dunno. Something pressed the US into both World Wars. (((Media))) was there every step of the way. Charlie Chaplin, Groucho Marx… Always been a smidge of Talmud not far from the camera, camera adds ten pounds of shekel you know. *sigh*. I used to love (((sci-fi))) before I became a grumpy basement dwelling Nazi.

        I was only thinking of movies and Hollywood.

        You are absolutely correct.

        You can still enjoy sci-fi books/audiobooks.

        Sweden belongs to Denmark, but the film is both “Swedish” and Danish.

        “the film was banned in the United States and heavily censored in other countries”

        Imagine if we made movies portraying Jews like how they portray us.
