Age checks for online pr0n? I've never heard of it but it sounds like a good idea – survey

Re: Get your ID pictures from

Brilliant! Has anybody used one of these images on a FaceBook post to see if facial recognition starts tracking them? With a bit of work, a completely fictitious person with a face that looks completely real could live a virtual life. A trickier thing would be to be able to create additional "photos" that a recognition program would identify with the first sample. The last big leap would be a virtual person that "looks" like me IRL yet "looks" like somebody else to a facial recognition program so I can have ID made to be that virtual person when humans look at it. Hmmm, going to have to see what Cory Doctorow can do with the idea.
