It's not an idle question: parents are posting millions of photos of their children to social networking sites, as are kids themselves when they are old enough to use Facebook and the like.
If I were to upload all my childhood photos to Facebook (or some future Facebook), could a biometric identification system link the button-nosed, round-cheeked child with a bowl cut to my adult face, which has lost its button, cheeks, and hair?
They want a system that can artificially age a missing child's face.
We all know kids change, but that's not the kind of rigorous analysis one needs to Photoshop five years onto a child's visage.
Still, that might not allay the worries of technology thinkers like Amy Webb, who recently warned parents to post no photographs of their children online because "ubiquitous bio-identification is only just getting started."What's at stake is this: how firmly do we want the media that children produce to attach to their adult identities?
For most current adults, the pictures and videos we made as kids are not searchable or accessible, except for the hand-curated selections of "throwback Thursday." Kids now are growing up on the Internet are trailed by an ever larger and deeper digital footprint.
