We love the web anonymous as it is, but sometimes when we do personal things on the web (like meeting people in social networks, renting a flat on airbnb, etc), we need a little less anonymity. That’s why we hacked truly.am, to help you verify the person behind the computer is who she/he claims to be. The flow it’s really simple, first, you upload the suspicious photo of the person you want to verify. Then the app gives you a link so that you can invite the other person to verify itself. When the other person goes to that link, we turn on hers/his webcam and with that input we run some face detection and face recognition algorithms in order to compare if the person behind the computer is the same person that appears on the photo you uploaded. So if that person denies the verification process, well... you better be aware.
