Sunday, July 18, 2010: 3:00 pm (Lovelace): As CCTV camera networks proliferate worldwide, so do automated face detection/recognition systems, which can rapidly identify faces in crowds and covertly log individuals' movements. CV Dazzle is camouflage from face detection. It's based on the original Dazzle camo from WWI and thwarts automated face detection/recognition systems by altering the contrast and spatial relationship of key facial features. Developed as a challenge to the growing prowess of computer vision, CV Dazzle undermines the capabilities of visual capture systems under the guise of high-fashion aesthetics.
