Hp Face Tracking Webcam tech can’t recognize Black People

Like an eps of Better off Ted come to life. Hp just like Veridian the fictional company in the show, have a motion tracking software in their new touchsmart computers that seems to have a hard time tracking black people. Hmm I just hope the won’t take the same measures as Veridian.

Hp’s Response to this claim

We are working with our partners to learn more. The technology we use is built on standard algorithms that measure the difference in intensity of contrast between the eyes and the upper cheek and nose. We believe that the camera might have difficulty “seeing” contrast in conditions where there is insufficient foreground lighting.
