Developed the world’s first glasses-proof face recognition

Earlier this month, the U.S. company Google has banned users Glass to use applications for automatic face recognition . The problem of information security are concerned, not only in the U.S. but also in Japan. Engineers National Institute of Informatics created the world’s first glasses that prevent the automatic face recognition digital cameras.

The inconspicuous recording may violate the human right to privacy. For example, the footage without the permission of the material may be published on the Internet, along with metadata that indicate the place and time of the shooting. Having in possession of such a device, you can protect yourself from invasion of privacy.

“You can certainly try to wear regular sunglasses, but they are unlikely to protect your face from the detection chamber. The system identifies the user on various facial features. It is not enough just to hide his eyes. We have developed goggles use 11 LEDs near-infrared range. To make the camera you have not learned enough to include these points, “- demonstrates the operation of the unit representative of the Japanese National Institute of Informatics.

If the human eye can not see infrared radiation from the LEDs, the light sensor detects them in the form of a bright light. The LEDs are arranged in a specific order due to the peculiarities of face recognition systems. Highlighting more darkened areas of the face near the eyes and nose, we interrupted our system to recognize the face.


Unlike previous attempts to hide her face from the recognition system, the new technology does not prevent the live communication. The device does not differ from glasses for everyday wear.

For cameras that do not perceive the infrared spectrum, the Japanese engineers plan to use a slightly different approach:

We also develop reflective glasses that do not require electrical power elements. The reflected light is blocking the work of the face recognition system. Very simple and inexpensive technology.

Recall that recently authorized by the defenders of the personal data requested from Google to reveal the truth about Glass .
