Yo, this is off topic, but does anyone know the name of those filters that attach cat ears, or other visual morphing's to a face via smart phone apps? you know what im talking about, they are all the rage on Instagram and shit like that, but I don't know the technical term for them
ok after one google search, I find these are called snapchat filters, however im uncomfortable calling them that because you can use them not just with snapchat, they can be applied just by running an apk. they must have another name, like iphone face filters or something. If anyone knows, i'd like to know also.
I don't blame you, I'm highly suspicious of all popular trends, and I tend to go against them, if only to offer some alternative perspective. edit... Oh I don't use them, and that article does not surprise me. Yes they are big at the moment, and the secret reason is really to help train ai to recognize faces, it doesn't take much thought to work out what that will be used for.
