Facebook thinks about face recognition in its smart glasses

01.03.2021 News

Facebook is considering the introduction of face recognition technology in smart glasses, which is currently working, writes CNBC, citing the words of the head of hardware Andrew Bosworth.

According to him, this feature can be added if customers need it. He added that if people do not need this technology, then use it in the device does not make sense, and said that companies should discuss this topic with the public.

Bosworth reminded that Facebook plans to release its smart glasses in 2021 together with Luxottica, the manufacturer of Ray-Ban.

Talks about using Facebook’s face recognition feature began after BuzzFeed reported that the company was discussing it at an internal meeting. According to the publication, Bosworth told employees that the company is now assessing whether it has the right to offer customers this feature.

“Face recognition is a challenge when both the benefits and the risks are obvious, and we don’t know how to balance them,” Bosworth said when asked if people would be able to mark their faces as unrecognizable when smart glasses become common technology. The employee expressed concern about the potential harm of such technology, mentioning, among other things, “stalkers” who pursue another person against his will.

The first version of Facebook’s smart glasses will not have an augmented reality feature that would allow you to combine virtual and real worlds, notes Bloomberg. The company plans to implement it in later versions: Facebook first announced plans to create an augmented reality glasses in 2017, the agency said. Since then, the company has developed several technologies that allow you to apply digital images to the real world, such as filters that change faces. In recent years, Facebook has invested in hardware development and acquired Oculus virtual reality device developer. According to a Bloomberg source, the company’s VR, AR and hardware departments have more than 6,000 employees – more than the group working on Instagram and WhatsApp.

Apple has previously announced the development of augmented reality glasses. The company planned to introduce the device in 2023, but development is still in its infancy, and the release of AR-glasses may take several more years, said Bloomberg.
