    Default YOU've Become A Computer's Plug-In App

    Hello Biometrics: Windows 10 to Add Facial Recognition, Iris Scans and Fingerprint Reader

    Source Nicholas West Activist Post




    After several years of consumer complaints, Microsoft Windows 10 has been getting a lot of attention as of late for many upgrades slated for their new version of the popular operating system.

    However, it appears that one feature being added to supposedly consumer-friendly applications is a suite of biometrics called Windows Hello and Windows Passport.

    It's all a part of the move toward a full-fledged Smart World where YOU become the password in a matrix of online and real-world activity.

    Naturally, the fear of identity theft and cyber crime of all stripes has been the sales pitch to accept this new pervasive identity tech. Apple's Touch ID was introduced in iPhone 5 which employed a fingerprint scanner for phone locking as well as to make purchases in Apple stores.

    Yet, it didn't take long for this new ultra-security measure to be hacked. As Melissa Melton reported:
    The new iPhone 5’s fingerprint ID security feature lasted all of what amounts to not even five minutes in the tech world — Chaos Computer Club is already reporting that they were able to hack the new phone:
    The biometrics hacking team of the Chaos Computer Club (CCC) has successfully bypassed the biometric security of Apple’s TouchID using easy everyday means. A fingerprint of the phone user, photographed from a glass surface, was enough to create a fake finger that could unlock an iPhone 5s secured with TouchID. This demonstrates – again – that fingerprint biometrics is unsuitable as access control method and should be avoided. [emphasis added]
    [...]
    At the 2012 Black Hat hackers conference, hackers were able to successfully demonstrate a program that could easily fool iris scan security systems using recreated irises from images stored in existing iris scan databases.
    Hacking risks already have been exposed in smart vehicles, smart cars, and even smart weapons(!!), so this seems to be par for the course. Beyond the hacking risks, though, there is our lovely government, which continues to prove that it will do anything and everything to track our every move.

    Online biometrics is a totalitarian dream of removing all anonymity during even the most casual computer interaction. We've already seen electronics warnings about keeping personal conversations quiet around smart TVs. What can we expect to happen when all of the items around us are connected to the Internet, and our bodies have become the sole password that connects us to the central database? It raises the spectre of simple monitoring of all health, consumer activity, environmental compliance, and pretty much every movement anywhere.

    Please watch the following Windows Hello and Passport promo to catch a glimpse of the early stages for what could become a much wider rollout of Smartworld ID profiling.

    Well, this is all very interesting!

    I don't know whether I like it or hate it!

    However, unless one can use any of the three for the same computer: facial, fingerprint, and iris, then it is not foolproof.

    If an injury, even a small cut, happens to the finger or the face, it would no longer be readable.

    The iris changes according to a person's health. This is especially true for people with blue eyes.

    I've seen people with blue eyes who once plagued with cancer, their eyes went from blue, to green, to hazel, to grey, to brown, to black!

    I've also witnessed murky brownish hazel eyes turn blue again after long, full, complete detoxification of the body.

    If a single organ in the body becomes diseased, then only a portion of the iris would change color.

    I could go on and on about this but I realize this thread is not about iridology, but about technology. Apologies if you don't find this relevant.

    It surprises me that these people go so far in technological advancements but do not realize that their inventions have holes.

    Heres a reason straight away to be wary of this , the technology
    was designed by an Israeli company , so we know who else will
    have access to all this......

    Quote TRAINING THE DEEPFACE TOOL

    DeepFace uses technology designed by an Israeli startup called face.com.

    Facebook bought the startup in 2013 and developed the facial recognition
    tool with support from face.com's Yaniv Taigman at its Artificial Intelligence lab.

    The researchers used the software to build a 3D model of a face from a photo
    that can be rotated into the best position for an algorithm to begin searching
    for a match. After creating a model, the team used a neural network that had
    been trained on a database of faces to try and match the face with one in a test
    database of more than 4 million images, containing more than 4,000 separate
    identities, each one labelled by humans. ts creators said DeepFace finds a match
    with 97.25 per cent accuracy.

    ‘Facebook and Google have been involved in an algorithm war to come
    up with the perfect facial detection system.Now Google has claimed the
    latest victory, saying its new FaceNet system is practically perfect –
    getting the right person 99.96% of the time.


    Google's new FaceNet system is practically perfect - getting the right person
    99.96% of the time - here, it shows the variety of lighting condition it can overcome

    Google researchers call their system the most-accurate technology
    available for recognizing human faces.In the paper, titled ‘FaceNet: A
    Unified Embedding for Face Recognition and Clustering’, Google claims
    the system achieved nearly 100-percent accuracy rate on the facial
    recognition dataset Labeled Faces in the Wild.’


    The dataset uses more than 13,000 face images from the Internet to
    measure how accurate the algorithms are at verifying whether two
    images are of the same individual.'Our method uses a deep convolutional
    network trained to directly optimize the embedding itself, rather than an
    intermediate bottleneck layer as in previous deep learning approaches,'
    the researchers say.'To train, we use triplets of roughly aligned
    matching / non-matching face patches generated using a novel online
    triplet mining method.

    'The benefit of our approach is much greater representational efficiency:
    we achieve state-of-the-art face recognition performance using only
    128-bytes per face.

    'On the widely used Labeled Faces in the Wild (LFW) dataset, our system
    achieves a new record accuracy of 99.63%.

    'On YouTube Faces DB it achieves 95.12%. Our system cuts the error rate
    in comparison to the best published result by 30% on both datasets.

    FaceNet was trained on an enormous 260-million-image dataset and
    performed at an 86 percent and higher accuracy rate.

    Last year, a team of Chinese researchers claimed to have achieved better
    than 99 percent accuracy.

    In the June 2014 paper, Facebook researchers said that humans analyzing
    images in the Labeled Faces dataset are only able to achieve 97.5 percent
    accuracy.However, Google researchers went beyond simply verifying
    whether two faces are identical by also attaching a name to a face.




    Google's system first clusters photos into a collection of similar faces

    Taking a classic facial recognition approach, the researchers went as
    far as organizing the images into groups of faces that look the most
    similar or the most distinct.

    When Google's FaceNet and Facebook's 'DeepFace' are eventually
    integrated into their company's web platforms, it is believed they
    will automate the process of tagging photos and searching for people
    and will also make it easier for web companies to analyze their users'
    social networks and to assess global trends.



    FaceNet was trained on an enormous 260-million-image dataset and
    performed at an 86 percent and higher accuracy rate. These were the
    only images it did NOT get right.

    Facebook's technology - called DeepFace - was first showcased last
    March, but the site has now started rolling out the automatic tagging
    tool to select users.

    DeepFace uses technology designed by an Israeli startup called face.com.

    Facebook bought the startup in 2013 and developed the facial recognition
    tool with support from face.com's Yaniv Taigman at its Artificial Intelligence lab.

    trained on a database of faces to try and match the face with one in a
    test database of more than 4 million images, containing more than 4,000
    separate identities, each one labelled by humans.

    Its creators said DeepFace finds a match with 97.25 per cent accuracy.





    Facebook's DeepFace technology uses a 3D model to virtually rotate faces so that
    are facing the camera. Image (a) shows the original image, and (g) shows the final,
    corrected version which the software then attempts to recognise

    The tagging option has now started appearing in the privacy settings of
    accounts globally - although in many cases it says the feature is
    'unavailable' - but a number of users have reportedly been given the tool.

    Taylor Hatmaker at The Daily Dot, for example, said that she recently
    tested the feature using an album of 15 photos.None of the images had
    been shared previously, and Facebook identified and automatically
    tagged faces in eight of the photos.Only one tag was incorrect, and the
    images it didn't offer suggestions for were 'taken in dark rooms' or
    were blurry.

    A test using real people recruited on Amazon's Mechanical Turk crowdsourcing
    site achieved 97.5 per cent accuracy.Security researcher Lee Munson said:
    'The social network plans to use the system to identify its users in new photos
    as they are uploaded.

    Kudos to a very brave moderator for posting this thread,

    sorry to offend the non-religious,
    but here is a bit of information on our times:

    Quote The Mark of the Beast
    Revelation 13

    16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

    17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.


    18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

    p.s. the tom cruise film Minority Report showed how biometrics (even advanced ones) can be hacked by bypassing certain of the expectations of the system it gives rise to a whole new crime industry, gross!



    and no, tc is not the ac lol

    p.s. has anyone's computer made a "docking" noise when you pass by, come and go, get near it etc ...

    Minority Report (2002) esoteric analysis – pre-crime is now here!

    March 15, 2015 3:51 pm
    By Jay | Jay’s Analysis





    ‘Spielberg’s Minority Report is now an important film to revisit. Based
    on the short story by visionary science fiction author Phillip K. Dick,
    Spielberg’s film version implements an important number of predictive
    programming elements not found in Dick. Both are worth a look, but
    the film is important for JaysAnalysis, since now 13 years later, we are
    actually seeing the implementation of the total technocratic takeover,
    including pre-crime tracking systems.

    Although the film and the short story present the precognition as a
    metaphysical mystery by telepathic individuals who can see into the
    aether, the real pre-crime systems are based on A.I. and the digitizing
    of all records under total information awareness. And as I’ve said, this
    was DARPA’s plan for the Internet all along.

    In fact, a good friend of mine worked for a few years digitizing mass
    medical records, and while most are aware of Google’s attempts to
    digitize all books, most do not know why. I’ve warned for several years
    now the end goal of all this digitization is not for “efficiency” and trendy
    techy cool iWatches to monitor heart rates and location. The ultimate
    goal is total mind control, loss of free will and the complete rewrite of
    all past reality.’
