We're using the face-tracking software. So, it's supposed to follow me as I move. I'm black. I think my blackness is interfering with the computer's ability to follow me. [...]I'm going on record, and I'm sayin' it. Hewlett-Packard computers are racist. I said it. And the worst part is, I bought one for Christmas.
News:HP believes its software is having "difficulty 'seeing' contrast in conditions where there is insufficient foreground lighting.
Stores are always very well lit. They are in a store of some sort and there seems to be no issue with not having enough light.
I suspect, in this case, there is more background lighting than foreground lighting, as seen in the video. The camera is looking directly at some of those lights and they are bright!
Regardless, I'm sure a bunch of software engineers at HP are wildly scrambling to find a fix for this as we speak.
I'm also highly amused by these two in the video. It's cool to see people taking this kind of stuff in stride!
Oh. I see what you are saying.
The auto-focus feature on both my digital camera and camcorder have a tough time dealing with the color black. I noticed this when I tried to photograph or video my black cat. I wonder if this is some kind of sick-minded conspiracy...
