Facebook Testing Side Facial Recognition Technology

By  | 

Facebook is looking to take its facial recognition software one step further.

The social media's software already lets users suggest tags on photos. The new technology, called Deepface, is more accurate. That's because it can identify someone from the side.

Researchers say it recognizes the correct face 97-percent of the time.

A Facebook spokesperson says it's not clear how or even if the social media site will ever use Deepface. It's still in the research phase.
