I saw that fb now demands that new supplicants give over a cell phone number AND a photo of themselves. Given FB’s reputation for treating data it gets like a commodity to be sold ASAP, many people may not want to post pix of themselves to fb for them to share with any and everyone. I mean, say something some corporate overlord might not like and suddenly you find yourself mysteriously fired because he accessed your pic on fb and found you work as one of his wage slaves.
Or maybe you find yourself being pulled over a lot after criticizing police excesses and abuses on FB and some cops looked up your account photo and said “Hey I know that guy!”
So to combat this I wonder if blender and other cgi systems could make photorealistic faces people could post to get a FB account while avoiding l’il lord Zuck’s demand for a picture of themselves.
Can a good cgi face trick whatever face recognition software fb uses? If so maybe people could use faces mkade by CGI to maintain their privacy when fb demands they hand over a pic of themselves they don;t want to have shared with corporate overlords, law enforcement, etc.
I’m not sue if a cgi face can fool some FRS, so if anyone does let me know.
