Know everything about how facial recognition works in porn

How do this work?

  • The working mechanism of this technique or technology, whatever you may call it, is quite simple. The very first thing is selecting a photo, through which you have to recognize a particular person.
  • After this, the detection runs the picture through a number of open source libraries. These help in detecting if there is any human face in the picture which is selected.
  • The facial photo is then cropped from the original picture, and it is aligned in a manner that the facial features such as eyes and mouth are in a general position. And with this as a reference, the work is made easy for the computer to run a check on other photos
  • The facial data so collected is then represented in a digital manner in the form of numbers. This is often called as a face print, which is unique for every person just as fingerprints are.
  • These numerical records are then used to find out the actual name of the pornstar.
