Me on PHP by William Tremblay

On April 6, 2013 I was writing a Drupal module in the PHP language at work. During the course of the day I used my phone camera to take a number of self-portraits documenting my facial expression. I then used an online system to extract a point cloud and construct a 3 dimensional object from the photos. Though they were taken from dissimilar angles and under different lighting conditions, the facial recognition algorithms in 3-D software prioritized the face while wildly misinterpreting the background. This is similar to what the human mind does when recognizing faces. The difference is that while the human mind discards the irrelevant data, making it effectively invisible, 3-D software faithfully reproduces it creating mathematically well-defined objects for us to consciously observe.
