YouTube technology to blur faces on uploaded videos – rioters could hide identities

New technology is being introduced by the Google-owned YouTube video website that will blur faces automatically.

And, according to the Telegraph, it could mean rioters who upload clips could hide their indentities.

Several clips were posted on the site during the London riots last summer, including footage of men robbing Malaysian student Ashraf Rossli when they were pretending to help him. His attackers were identified and jailed.

Google says the technology will help to protect human rights in countries such as Libya and Syria.
