US government tests find even top-performing facial recognition systems misidentify blacks at rates 5 to 10 times higher than they do whites.
It was probably not the best idea to apply face changing filters 10 times in a row, but the Swedish YouTube miracle was brave enough to delve into the darkest corners of neural network algorithms.
The app is based on a neural network that "removes" clothing from images of women and does not work with men. The machine-learning algorithms has been trained thousands of women’s photos to learn to swap their clothes for private parts.
