Facial recognition data scrubbed by Microsoft


Recommended Posts

"Microsoft has discreetly pulled a facial recognition database from its site that contained 10 million images of some 100,000 people.

"The internet giant took down the database after a Financial Times investigation revealed that the database has been used by companies and military researchers to train facial recognition systems around the world.

"The public dataset, called 'MS Celeb,' included images of 'celebrities' pulled from the internet, but also contained photos of 'arguably private individuals,' often without their knowledge or consent, the FT found."
