If you decide where your night leads based solely on the ratio of TNA:CNB, then my friend, you’re probably not my friend. In addition, you probably don’t care about the underlying privacy issues related to using facial-recognition software in public places.

UPDATE: SceneTap actually uses facial-detection software, not facial-recognition. Your privacy is safe, your gender is not.

SceneTap will soon be offering its ratio-ranking services to establishments interested in providing patrons with the amount of males and females currently trolling their bar.

SceneTap uses facial-detection software, (similar to iPhoto and Facebook), to identify:

  • Number of people
  • Number of female people
  • Number of male people

SceneTap then uses an advanced algorithm to determine what’s called a “ratio” of male people to female people. It’s all very confusing and I’m not a scientist – I’m a sentence-ist.

Basically, you get a meaningless figure, as SceneTap’s software currently cannot identify d-bags. If they could, the ratio’s colon, (males:females), would be represented by an asshole, (malesofemales).

It’s coming soon to a bar near you.
