PostSubject: This creepy technology can read your emotions as you walk down the street   Sun Jul 30, 2017 2:15 am

If this Russian tech company has its way, emotion-reading recognition is the cool kid on the block right now. With serious consequences for everyone's privacy and personal data. 
NTechLab ignited a controversy last year after it released FindFace, an app that can track everyone on VKontakte, the Russian equivalent of Twitter, based on their profile. 
Someone used the app to identify and harass sex workers and porn actresses through their personal profiles, though the firm said that they weren't breaking any privacy regulations.
But the new version of FindFace takes it even further. It adds emotion recognition to the traditional identification of face, age, and gender. 
FindFace's neural network receives part of a photo with a face, processes it, and generates the feature-vector, basically the set of 160 numbers that describe the face.  
NTechLab claims its software is able to search through a database of a billion faces in less than half a second, allowing law enforcement real-time crime fighting abilities.
