A graduate student is developing a technology that aids individual privacy of a person by using makeup patterns on the face to confuse face detection programs.

Adam Harvey, a graduate student at the New York University, is developing a privacy enhancing counter technology to protect individual privacy of an average person. Adam gathered information from various face tracking programs and is experimenting with images to make them undetectable by these software. As part of this project, he used women's faces from a fashion design book and smeared make-up in asymmetrical designs to confuse the programs and hide them from face detection.
