WEIRD: Porn Sites Match Your Face to Sex Stars (using facial recognition technology)
[link to news.yahoo.com]


Ever see an attractive person and wonder what he or she looked like naked?
Two porn websites have made that fantasy a reality, using facial-recognition technology to match user-submitted photos of people to porn stars.
But there doesn't appear to be any mechanism for consent on the part of the people whose images are submitted. And what happens if someone uses the matches to harass an ex-girlfriend, an ex-husband or a friend's mother?
Gee, you look familiar
"We think [facial] matching is the future and we stand behind it," Naughty America chief executive officer Eddie Arenas said when his company's "Face Match" feature went live in June. "What we've developed is a system where users can visually show us exactly what they want and then see similar images."
Face Match, available at face.naughtyamerica.com (the front page is safe for work), lets you upload, link to or email a JPEG file from a computer or mobile device.
It promises to find porn stars who look like the person whose photo you uploaded, along with links to images and video of those porn stars in business.
But there's a catch. We tried it using a public-domain photo of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, but whether we used a URL link or a direct upload, the Naughty America site told us that "high domain volume" prevented the feature from working immediately.
Instead, the site wanted our email address in order to send us the matches. We don't want porn emails coming to us at work, so we stopped right there.
We took a look at some of the examples offered on the Face Match site. They weren't too convincing. Five matches were offered for "Call Me Maybe" Carly Rae Jepsen, but none really looked like her, other than sharing Jepsen's dark shoulder-length hair.
Meanwhile, the matches for a purported user's "hot neighbor" (clearly a model) were even further off — they couldn't even get the hair color right. And matches for shock-jock Howard Stern were all women.
