Facebook researchers have built DeepFace, an algorithm that can pick a face out of a crowd with 97.25 per cent accuracy. That means it is almost as good as we are at recognizing a face. (1)

But is that correct?
Can this be correct?

Is our face simply a pattern of lines and colours?
Do we recognize faces based only on these attributes?

An era void of life.
An era where lifeless beings seeing only lifeless things.

We have stopped seeing our soul in our eyes.
Our face will soon be only a pattern of lines and colours.

Facebook will soon INDEED detect faces…

Spiros has a diploma in Chemical Engineering, an MSc in Advanced Materials' Technology, an MBA in Decisions' Science, a phD in the use of conductive polymers in PCB industry and is still learning. He also worked as a technical advisor and a researcher in the Advanced Materials sector for many years in the past. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He is the creator of Huo Chess, one of the smallest micro-chess programs ever that is perfect for educational purposes. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy, as well as the philosophy of the irrational. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. Since our thought is dictated by our assumptions, the only way to free it and know cosmos as it is, is to think irrationally and destroy everything we have built. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans. We should stop thinking in order to think. Credo quia absurdum! View all posts by skakos
