【亚马逊的人脸识别产品Rekognition已经可以辨别出恐惧情绪】据外媒报道,亚马逊表示,其人脸识别产品Rekognition已经可以发现人们的恐惧情绪。目前亚马逊的这项技术可以识别八种情感,包括快乐、悲伤、愤怒、惊讶、厌恶、冷静和困惑。此外,亚马逊表示,他们已经提高了Rekognition的年龄范围估计准确度,因此客户可以获得更窄的年龄范围。然而最新的更新已经引起了抨击,民权组织呼吁科技巨头停止向执法部门出售Rekognition,但亚马逊的投资者投票反对限制这种做法的提议。据报道,该公司还向美国移民和海关执法局(ICE)提供了Rekognition,这可能是目前最具争议的机构之一。

 

Amazon says its facial recognition tech can identify fear in people's faces

The company also improved its controversial technology's ability to estimate age ranges.

Amazon says its contentious facial recognition technology can now detect fear in people's faces. That makes it the eighth emotion it can identify along with happiness, sadness, anger, surprise, disgust, calmness and confusion. In addition, Amazon says it has improved Rekognition's age range estimation accuracy, so customers can get narrower age ranges "across most age groups."

As you might have guessed, the latest updates have drawn flak, considering their nature -- they sure make the technology sound like it came straight out of a dystopian novel -- and the fact that Amazon's customers include law enforcement agencies. Facial recognition, after all, is nowhere near perfect and still tends to misidentify women and persons of color. In 2018, ACLU even released a study showing that the technology misidentified 28 US lawmakers.

Civil rights groups called on the tech giant to stop selling Rekognition to law enforcement, but Amazon's investors voted against a proposal to limit the practice. The company also reportedly offered Rekognition to the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which is perhaps one of the most controversial agencies today.
