Face recognition is improving a lot, and has some pretty important implications.

The result is a single algorithm that can spot faces from a wide range of angles, even when partially occluded. And it can spot many faces in the same image with remarkable accuracy.

Throw in CCTVs every 10 metres or so (Hello UK!), and bigger budgets for "safety" and you will never have another moment of privacy, ever.

I was chatting with a fellow on a recent trip to Seoul and he told me about a new plastic surgery "clinic" in Gangnam -- it's like 27 floors or something obscene like that. Just nuts. Apparently it's very popular with Chinese plastic surgery medical tourists who fly in during the morning, get surgery, then fly out that evening.
