Israeli scientists have developed a way to fool facial recognition systems, The Times of Israel reported on Oct. 3.
Researchers from Ben-Gurion University conducted experiments by learning how to mislead the facial recognition system.
To do this, the scientists used artificial intelligence to develop special algorithms for applying makeup to faces.
It turned out that if makeup is applied to certain key areas of the face, the facial recognition system works only in 1.22 percent of cases.
If makeup was applied randomly, the system recognized faces 33.73% of the time. The experiment involved 20 volunteers - ten women and ten men.
