脸书将关闭其面部识别系统

Facebook is shutting down its face recognition system

Meta is further backing away from facial recognition. The company has announced it’s shutting down the Face Recognition system on Facebook in the “coming weeks.” You’ll no longer be automatically recognized in photos if you opted in to the feature, and the Facebook team will delete over a billion facial recognition templates. Automatic Alt Text’s descriptions for the visually impaired will also stop naming people detected in photos.

Meta正在进一步远离面部识别。该公司宣布将在“未来几周”关闭Facebook上的面部识别系统。如果你选择了这项功能,你的照片将不再被自动识别,Facebook团队将删除超过10亿个面部识别模板。针对视障人士的自动Alt文本描述也将停止命名照片中发现的人。

The company said it made the decision following “growing concerns” about the broader use of facial recognition, including “uncertainty” about regulation of the technology. While Meta believed face recognition could still be helpful in some situations, such as gaining access to a locked account, it felt a “narrower,” more privacy-oriented approach was a better fit than the broader outgoing strategy. On-device recognition wouldn’t require sharing data with outside servers, for example.

该公司表示,做出这一决定是因为人们对面部识别的更广泛使用“日益担忧”,包括对该技术监管的“不确定性”。虽然Meta认为面部识别在某些情况下仍有帮助,比如进入一个被锁定的账户,但它认为“更窄”、更注重隐私的方法比更广泛的对外策略更适合。例如,设备上的识别不需要与外部服务器共享数据。
