Face recognition does not seem to match Juggalo make-up




According to security and privacy researcher Tahkion, certain systems intended for facial recognition can be routed around the garden with specific, black-and-white Juggalo designs. Who would have thought that.

According to Tahkion , the trick makes use of the fact that the facial recognition systems often take certain contrast points of the human face as a starting point, for example the position of the nose and the spot where the chin merges into the neck. Because Juggalo make-up often places black make-up above the chin, an elevated jaw line is formed, as it were, with which the neural networks of at least certain facial recognition systems are guided around the garden according to the researcher. Juggalo is the term for fans of the band Insane Clown Posse.

The researcher states that the use of make-up such as dark eyeliner is usually insufficient . According to him recognition technology can not just recognize the same person as there is already a picture with the specific Juggalo make-up available, because it is difficult to consistently wear the same make-up twice.

The website The Outline reports that systems like Apple’s Face ID probably can not be fooled with this , since the sensor determines whether there is a match based on depth information. Based on the screenshots published by the researcher, he uses the facial recognition software available via GitHub . The so-called ‘corpse paint’ of certain metal bands turns out to be less effective in evading facial recognition.
