More than 5000 face photos sold for 10 yuanThe reporter searched relevant information with the keyword face data set on an app named Zhuanzhuan, and quickly popped up a product named face related algorithm training data set, with a price of 10 yuan. According to the product introduction, the dataset contains more than 5000 face photos, many of which are photos of a person with different facial expressions.
The reporter got in touch with the seller through the chat function of the platform. When the reporter asked if the seller had been authorized by the photo owner, the seller said, the authorized price is definitely not this price..

Your Face Is Not a Bar Code
Multiple apps collect face data without protocol
The reporter also found in the survey that there are many apps that collect face data information at will. For example, an app called face scoring and another app called taking photos with certificates can collect face data information of users at will without any usage protocol.

Cant enter the zoo without brushing your faceWith the increasing application of face information, peoples security awareness is also improving. In Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, Guo Bing, an associate professor at Zhejiang University of science and technology, sued Hangzhou wildlife world for not using face recognition. This is also known as the first case in the field of face recognition use filed by domestic consumers suing businesses.
In Hangzhou wildlife world, the annual ticket holders need to pass the brush face certification before entering the park. Guo Bing, an associate professor at Zhejiang University of science and technology, recorded his fingerprint here in April this year and applied for the annual card. However, on October 17, Guo Bing received a text message notice from the zoo that the annual card system was upgraded to face recognition, and the original fingerprint recognition was cancelled. Users who did not register for face recognition would not be able to enter the park after October 17, so they need to carry the annual card to the zoo to handle the upgrade business as soon as possible. The zoo explained that the main purpose of the change in the way of entering the park is to facilitate consumers to enter the park quickly and make face recognition more efficient.
But Guo Bing believes that zoos should obtain the consent of consumers, and also inform consumers of the purpose and risk of use, so that consumers really know. Guo Bing also believes that personal biometric information, such as facial features, belongs to personal sensitive information. Once leaked, it is easy to be abused, endangering personal and property security.He proposed to the zoo to refund the annual card fee, but the two sides failed to reach an agreement. On October 28, 2019, Guo Bing filed a lawsuit with the peoples Court of Fuyang District, Hangzhou city. At present, the peoples Court of Fuyang District of Hangzhou city has decided to officially accept the case.
