HP Face-Tracking Webcams Don't Recognize Black People

HP Face-Tracking Webcams Don't Recognize Black People



This is awkward. It appears that HP's new webcams, which have facial-tracking software, can't recognize black faces, as evidenced in the above video. HP has responded:

We are working with our partners to learn more. The technology we use is built on standard algorithms that measure the difference in intensity of contrast between the eyes and the upper cheek and nose. We believe that the camera might have difficulty "seeing" contrast in conditions where there is insufficient foreground lighting.

I hope the black community doesn't mind if those of us with lighter skin start wearing black make-up. Big Grin

I think this could be easily resolved with with white marks under the eyes like football players wear. Now the question is would be Micheal Jackson be picked up by the web cam ? HMMMM?
In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

As a reputed atheist, the reverential nature of his film was surprising, but Pasolini himself said &If you know that I am an unbeliever, then you know me better than I do myself. I may be an unbeliever, but I am an unbeliever who has a nostalgia for a belief.&
