If you are in a photo that has been uploaded to Flickr, IBM may have used your face to train facial recognition technology that could eventually be used to surveil you.

Nearly a million photos were scraped from Flickr to do so.


@oplife at the same time.... If you have put your photo on a public server of the interwebz, who knows whatever madness your face may have been used for....

@sakrecoer Yes it's quite an obvious potential consequence of that scenario considering the freedoms that users and organizations may take on the interwebz.
