London Show Explores Hidden World of Facial Recognition

Modern technology means your face is both your identity and a commodity — but as an exhibition going on display in London shows, that technology is far from perfect. "Face Values," the U.S. entry at the multinational London Design Biennale, explores how computers' ability to read faces is changing the world, with implications for privacy and individuality that we still don't fully understand. "We are on camera 50 times a day and there are all these software companies that are deriving information from us," said [NYU Tandon Integrated Digital Media Co-Director] R. Luke DuBois, one of the exhibition's designers.
