According to the Kurzweil AI website, "research led by Dr. Rob Jenkins, of the Department of Psychology at the University of York" reveals that the reflection of the pupil in the eye can yield hidden information, "such as reflected faces of the photographer and bystanders." Creepy? It gets worse, reportedly a new algorithm finds you, even in untagged photos.
The researchers say that in crimes in which the victims are photographed, such as hostage taking or child sex abuse, reflections in the eyes of the photographic subject could help to identify perpetrators. Images of people retrieved from cameras seized as evidence during criminal investigations could be used to piece together networks of associates or to link individuals to particular locations.
By zooming in on high-resolution passport-style photographs, Jenkins and co-researcher Christie Kerr of the School of Psychology, University of Glasgow were able to recover bystander images that could be identified accurately by observers, despite their low resolution.
