FaceBook’s DeepFace Project

Overview: DeepFace is a project being developed and put in use by FaceBook, DeepFace can accurately identify the true identity of an image and can spot users in the 400 Million photos uploaded to Facebook every day. “DeepFace uses a fresh approach to artificial intelligence known as deep learning.” Deep learning is noted as networks of neurons learn to recognize patterns that are in large amounts of data. Deep learning is not a new breakthrough concept, it has been floating around for decades, but our technology is finally able to handle the extensive amounts of equations going on to create the virtual neurons necessary to recognize images and or speech.

What is DeepFace? 'Human-Level' Face Matching, Explained http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13FZHiXJSsE Application:
Although the concept of facial recognition is not a breakthrough, the uses for it are. Facebook states that the DeepFace technology will be used to improve user privacy to dispel privacy concerns it has had in the past. DeepFace will be able to identify the user in a photo and notify them before allowing them to be tagged in it without their permission. This is especially useful as it will allow the user to blur out their face in images that may be embarrassing or even incriminating. This will notify uses whether the person uploading the photo is a friend or a stranger but only allows users to see the identities of the people they are already friends. Google and the government have taken a special interest in this application. Google has developed its own variation of this technology called FaceNet that boasts more than 86% accuracy at identifying whether images are the same person, while DeepFace has an accuracy score of 97% using the same recognition data set called Labeled Faces in the Wild. The difference between the FaceNet and…...

...Question 1 Katz has identified 3 general skills with relation to management namely conceptual skills, human skills and technical skills (Daft, 2010). Mark Zuckerberg as a Chief Executive Officer(CEO) has conceptual skills because he can plan for the present and the future. Zuckerberg’s decision to partner with Microsoft in an advertising deal in 2006 within the United States and subsequently internationally in 2011 has allowed Facebook to continue to grow as a technological company (Stone, 2007). Zuckerberg has also incorporated the Bing search engine within Facebook as a step to ensure Facebook’s sustainability as users can perceive Facebook as more than just a regular social networking site (Bolm, n.d.). According to Bolm (n.d.), Bing says that a huge portion of society refer to their friends before making the decision to purchase things and this phenomenon is known as the “Friend Effect”. He acknowledges that to achieve success, one must be able to work with people as well as through them. Zuckerberg management style of having a flexible workplace demonstrates his human skills as a manager (Yulianto, 2011). His ability to lead, motivate, increase and realize the potential of his employees is seen as crucial skills for a manager. The Hackathon that Zuckerberg organizes within his company allows critical as well as creative thinking. It promotes co-operation and helps build team spirit and better social connections within employees not only with themselves but as well as......

...Facebook is a big time waster By Abraham.joseph, Dubai, United Arab Emirates More by this author Email me when Abraham.joseph contributes work Image Credit: Joseph B., Mesquite, TX The author's comments: I wrote this for english class and thought I would share it. During the first decade of the 21st century a popular and new word has come into our vocabulary. That word is Facebook. This is the most popular social networking website on the internet. If you haven’t heard about Facebook until reading this, then you must have been in a coma for the last 5 years. There are about 350 million active users on this website. The main idea of Facebook is that you can keep in touch with all your friends around the world who has Facebook. You can send messages to your friend’s electronic wall, put up a status saying something like “Going to the mall, need to get a new pair of shoes” or “it’s finally the weekend! :)”. In the 350 million users on Facebook, 67% of them are between the ages of 13 -25. More than 35 million users update their status every day. 2.5 billion Photos are added each month. The highest age groups who use Facebook are teenagers. Most of them keep the website running whenever they are using the computer and general teens nowadays are always on the computer, if they aren’t in school/college or when they aren’t asleep. I feel that teens should be focused on their school work or be socializing with their friends in person or exercising. Facebook is just......

...Facebook Facebook is the largest social network founded in February 2004 by Harvard University student Mark Zuckerberg. Zuckerberg’s original plan was to develop an exclusive site for students at Harvard, but within weeks, he had expanded the network to include 30 additional universities. As expansion continued, he was approached by Friendster and Yahoo and earned his reputation as the “kid who turned down a billion” (CrunchBase, 2012, p. 1). By October 2007, the company received $240 million from Microsoft making its valuation over $15 billion. This event gave annual revenue of $150 million bumping Facebook to the number five spot in the United States for internet companies. This year, the network filed for an initial public offering going public on May 18, 2012. The NASDAQ recorded opening shares trading at $42.05 (CrunchBase, 2012). The network has an estimated “845 million monthly active users” with 483 million logging in daily (CrunchBase, 2012, p. 1). Mobile users compose half of their market. It continues to be classified as the most trafficked site in the U.S., but its growth in the international market is astonishing. The global strategies orchestrated by Javier Olivan, Vice President International Operations, has allowed Facebook to expand their user base across the globe. Through the development of new tools and the communication with foreign countries, Facebook will continue to advance and create an atmosphere for their users and advertisers that far......

...Professor Wolfe English 101 16 November 2009 Facebook Facebook is one of the largest online social networking sites in the world. People of all ages and countries use Facebook as a way to communicate with each other. Furthermore, the launch of this site has changed the way we talk to one another, both on a personal and cyber level, in addition to how we are hired for a job. The sudden influx in popularity of the Facebook site has also changed our sense of privacy. We will post pictures of underage drinking and other various illegal or profane actions, but feel that we are not revealing too much because our actions are confined to the privacy of our Facebook friends. We change our profile pictures and post information, all creating an image of how we want others to perceive us. Facebook has changed the people communicate with one another, and privacy should not be a concern when using the site because it is the user’s decision who can access their information. Facebook was created by a man named Mark Zuckerberg. Actually, the term “man” could be used loosely, Mark is a mere twenty-three years old (Newmark). Zuckerberg attended Harvard University and created Facebook in his dorm in 2004 (Newmark). “The first month the site went ‘live’ in 2004, half of Harvard’s undergraduates signed up. Its popularity spread to other Boston-area campuses including MIT, Boston University and Boston College. By December 2004, the number of Facebook users surpassed one million”......

For this assignment I choose the 3 main social networking sites available today; Facebook, MySpace, and LinkedIn. Facebook - Facebook is a social networking site that was first launched in 2004. (Eldon, 2008) Facebook is definitely the number one site throughout the globe when it comes to social networking. Through the years Facebook has had some tough competition and has seen many ups and down’s from various lawsuits, but it is still arguably the most popular social networking site used today. (Facebook, 2012) Marketing Opportunity - This site would be an exceptional marketing opportunity to market clothing to college students across the globe or around the world. This would be achievable because of the popularity of Facebook. As we already know, Facebook is used by many if not most of these students, so I would suggest that they branch out and try to use this opportunity.

...Using Facebook to Teach Rhetorical Analysis Jane Mathison Fife The attraction of Facebook is a puzzle to many people over the age of thirtyfive, and that includes most college faculty. Yet students confess to spending significant amounts of time on Facebook, sometimes hours a day. If you teach in a computer classroom, you have probably observed students using Facebook when you walk in the room. Literacy practices that fall outside the realm of traditional academic writing, like Facebook, can easily be seen as a threat to print literacy by teachers, especially when they sneak into the classroom uninvited as students check their Facebook profiles instead of participating in class discussions and activities. This common reaction reflects James King and David O’Brien’s (2002: 42) characterization of the dichotomy teachers often perceive between school and nonschool literacy activities (although they are not referring to Facebook specifically): “From teachers’ perspectives, all of these presumably pleasurable experiences with multimedia detract from students’ engagement with their real work. Within the classroom economy technology work is time off task; it is classified as a sort of leisure recreational activity.” This dichotomy can be broken down, though; students’ enthusiasm for and immersion in these nonacademic literacies can be used to complement their learning of critical inquiry and traditional academic concepts like rhetorical analysis. Although they read these texts......
