Facebook can recognise you in photos even if you're not looking - tech - 22 June 2015 - New Scientist

Perhaps time to check your Facebook photos privacy settings

"The research team pulled almost 40,000 public photos from Flickr - some of people with their full face clearly visible, and others where they were turned away - and ran them through a sophisticated neural network.

The final algorithm was able to recognise individual people's identities with 83 per cent accuracy. It was presented earlier this month at the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition conference in Boston, Massachusetts.

An algorithm like this could one day help power photo apps like Facebook's Moments, released last week."
