Facebook's artificial intelligence chief developed surveillance systems based on facial recognition
Facebook's artificial intelligence chief worked on the development of systems which could one day help computers automatically spy on humans, The Sun Online has learned.
Yann LeCun, leader of Mark Zuckerberg's AI research division, contributed to academic papers exploring the creation of software which would serve as a "key component" in an automated surveillance network.
Computer surveillance is likely to become hugely controversial in the coming years, as it will allow cops, spooks and even private companies to track individual people's movements.
Eventually, CCTV cameras will be able to work out the identity of the people they are looking at - as long as they have pictures of them.
