Facial Recognition Software and Cats

I thought this was an interesting use of facial recognition software, especially given the current state of affairs surrounding privacy. It’s a work of art by Shinseungback Kimyonghun called Cat or Human:

Human faces recognized as a cat face by a cat face-detection algorithm. Cat faces recognized as a human face by a human face-detection algorithm.

The facial recognition (human and cat) was done using open source software. (Kittydar and OpenCV).
