Dark side of Machine learning : Used to make counterfeit “master key” fingerprints


Similar to the way that a master key can unlock every door in a building, these “DeepMasterPrints” use artificial intelligence to match a large number of prints stored in fingerprint databases and could thus theoretically unlock a large number of devices. … Julian Togelius, an associate professor of computer science and engineering [at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering] who led the research, notes that the Latent Variable Evolution method researchers used here to generate fingerprints can also be used to make designs in other industries—notably game development.
