Meet the author: Dr. Philip Wolfson, Faces Tell All: When Match Makers Turn Spy CatchersWednesday July 24, 2019
7:00 PM until 8:30 PM
Dr. Philip Wolfson, author of the groundbreaking techno thriller, Faces Tell All: When Match Makers Turn Spy Catchers, will give a presentation about the topic of facial recognition technology, as he introduces us to his novel. He explains: “Big Brother could soon be watching you with sophisticated spy cameras: revealing not only who you are but also what you’re about: your physical and emotional health as well as your actions and intentions. And Faces Tell All relates how it all could happen."
"This means matchmakers and potential employers could determine from your face and body language whether you are habitually happy or sad, stressed or relaxed, vibrant or sluggish; while law enforcement and national security professionals would be looking to spot deceit, guilt or fear."
Faces Tell All is the world’s first work of fiction devoted to face scanning technology; the plot involves a face-reading app intended for the dating crowd which due to its potential for espionage attracts the CIA and Chinese Intelligence—who then battle for the coveted technology. The book also illustrates the power of facial imagery on mass audiences, in an imagined demonstration of computer re-created history enhanced by hypnotic cinematography.
Faces Tell All should attract followers of cinema, media, fact-based fiction, international politics and computer technology as well as students of social psychology and multiculturalism.
