Facebook is set to add a facial recognition feature to its facial recognition service, a move that is expected to be a major step towards the rollout of its new technology.
The Facebook software company has been working on a new technology to identify faces for use in facial recognition, which is expected by the end of the year.
The company says it will be launching facial recognition into its facial-recognition service later this year.
It will add the feature to existing facial recognition services as well as new ones that are being developed.
The feature will be able to recognize faces that are at least two years old, and will be used to categorise photos that are taken within the last year.
Facebook says it is also adding an additional feature that will help people find photos that were taken within three months of the person’s birth.
This facial recognition capability is expected in the next few months, Facebook said in a statement.
“Face recognition will be added to Facebook’s face recognition service this year, and in the coming months we will continue to work on ways to make this technology even more useful for users,” the company said.
Facebook’s facial recognition will work with existing photos of a person, as well.
For example, if a photo of a parent with their child in their arms is uploaded, the technology will know the parent is the parent, and can identify their child, Facebook added.
“While Facebook is working on its facial identification system, we’re also working to expand facial recognition to include other types of photos and videos that could be of interest to our community,” Facebook said.
Facebook’s facial-profiling technology is expected also to be available in the near future.
