  • Putin owns your face

    Russians now own your face. What next?

    The eerie FaceApp photo filter, which uses AI to digitally age your face, has gone viral, with millions on social media sharing their sagging simulacrum, including celebs such as Drank, the Jonas Brothers and Kevin Hart. However, experts warn that the free “old age filter,” created in 2017 by developers at Wireless Lab in St. Petersburg, Russia, poses security concerns that may give them access to your personal information and identity.

    But be warned: FaceApp, which you grant permission to access your photo gallery, also includes in their Terms and Conditions that they have the right to modify, reproduce and publish any of the images you process through its AI.That means that your face could end up being commercialized — or worse.

    Anyone's face is easily available through many venues, including the inevitable "selfies". No big deal. Putin's face is more readily available than most of humanity's, in fact, due to his constant publicity.

    Anyone wants my tired old face, welcome to it. It's "pre-aged" for their convenience.

      I don't think you read the item properly. The relevant bit is "you grant permission to access your photo gallery" which might contain all sorts of stuff you might not want used.

      As it happens I don't need such an app - I just look in the mirror and think "My God I can't look that old"

          I did see the permission thing, which is why I never do that sort of thing.

          When I look in the mirror, I just ask "Are you still here"?
