Avoiding Facial Recognition of the Future

Shackleford Hurtmore And now add plenty of false positives, too. (258 comments)

I read about his work a couple of years ago. He has come up with a good way to prevent a facial recognition algorithm getting "true positives", but I think to truly mess with The Man, how about my idea for a textile pattern to also generate lots of spurious "false positives": http://shacklemore.blogspot.com/2010/04/facial-recognition-camoflage.html Hopefully, if enough people wore this fabric, any real-time facial recognition algorithm would start getting CPU bound, and limited by the speed of running hundreds of database queries against it's back-end database.

Could Fake Phishing Emails Help Fight Spam?

Shackleford Hurtmore Man, this is messing with my head. (296 comments)

Cool - that could mean that spammers would start writing botnets that would also block government spam from landing on the computer, in case the user gets educated and figures out how to secure their computer. I can imagine a new spam race where the government has to write ever more clever spam to get round the malware's rulebase!
