The MITRE Corporation is a not-for-profit re-search company that applies new technologies to problems in an array of areas. The goal of the MITRE clinic team’s project is to produce an algorithm that transforms an image to preserve apparent similarity to a human, but leads to a de-creased accuracy for a number of specified recognition algorithms. This algorithm makes it significantly more difficult for certain facial recognition algorithms to detect individuals, leading to in-creased security and privacy.
