Facebook has an autonomous facial recognition system called "DeepFace" 

It currently "knows" 800 million people.  

DeepFace is autonomous, it makes decisions based on cognitive capabilities it built on its own.

If I take a picture of you, and you are one of the people DeepFace already knows, it can identify you in five seconds.

It can do this at a level of accuracy as good as human beings ~97%.

DeepFace can run on the processor in a cell phone.

  • Target.
  • Sony.
  • The Internal Revenue Service.
  • The Office of Personnel Management
  • The Joint Chiefs of Staff

The reason for this is simple.  The US has lost its ability to deter cyber attacks.
