Google Pixel 4's facial recognition tech works when owners' eyes are closed

  Google Pixel 4's facial recognition tech works when owners' eyes are closed Earlier this week, the BBC's Chris Fox reported that the Pixel 4's facial recognition unlock feature works even when you're unconscious -- no eyes needed. Raising concern about the security of upcoming Pixel 4 series owners, BBC technology reporter Chris Fox tweeted earlier this week that "The Pixel 4 facial recognition works even if you're asleep/dead." In response to the worry that this tweet caused, Google told the BBC Thursday simply that "We will continue to improve Face Unlock over time" and that this is how the phone will go on sale next week.

(Photo by Fine Art Images/Heritage Images/Getty Images) A facial deformity prominent among the Habsburg dynasty of Spanish and Austrian kings and their wives can be attributed to inbreeding, researchers have confirmed.

The 'Habsburg jaw' caused the lower jaw to protrude significantly above the upper jaw, resulting in a distinct chin clearly visible in historical portraits of the family's members.

This new study, published in the Annals of Human Biology, proves the long-suspected condition was linked to inbreeding as a result of generations of intermarriage.

  Face of medieval man reconstructed from 600-year-old skeleton The face of a medieval man has been reconstructed from skeletal remains buried more than 600 years ago. The bones - found during the redevelopment of Aberdeen Art Gallery in 2015 - were used in conjunction with facial reconstruction technology to help experts paint a picture of what life was like in the Middle Ages. © Other Experts have reconstructed the face of a medieval man.

Those wacky royals are always up to something. Unfortunately, in past centuries, that something also included inbreeding . Find out what kinds of conditions a The biggest problem with inbreeding is that when close relatives choose to mate, it results in homozygosity, which can increase their offspring's

THE jutting 'Habsburg jaw' - a facial deformity common to the European royal family of the same name - was the results of centuries of inbreeding , according to a new study. Generations of intermarriage secured the Habsburg dynasty's dominance over a vast European empire

It asked 10 maxillofacial surgeons (specialised in surgery of the face, mouth and jaw) to diagnose facial deformity in 66 portraits of 15 members of the Habsburg dynasty, examining 11 features of mandibular prognathism (protrusion of the lower jaw) and seven maxillary deficiency (upper jaw area) features - including a prominent lower lip and overhanging nasal tip.

According to TechTastic in the Netherlands, the Android 10 software for the Galaxy S10 has references of the Face Service app for the Picasso, which is the codename for the Galaxy S11.

Two hundred years of inbreeding among European royals may be to blame for a facial deformity known as the 'Habsburg jaw', scientists claim. Geneticists and surgeons analysed the deformities visible in various portraits of the dynasty and compared this with the amount of inbreeding across

The House of Habsburg held the throne of the Holy Roman Empire from 1438 until 1740, when the final male monarch King Charles II of Spain died after failing to produce a male heir.

The surgeons determined that Mary of Burgundy, who married into the family in 1477, showed the least degree of both traits, while  Philip IV, King of Spain and Portugal from 1621 to 1640, displayed the greatest amount of mandibular prognathism.

  Edinburgh girl, 10, suffers serious facial injuries after being mauled by two dogs The 10-year-old had to have surgery after the shocking attack in Wester Hailes. The schoolgirl was allegedly attacked by two Japanese Akita dogs while standing near a convenience store at Hailesland Grove, in Wester Hailes.

Keep in mind that royal portraits were always flattering. All in the family. For the past thousand years, the royal families of Europe have routinely intermarried. Other common Hapsburg traits due to inbreeding : a large misshapen nose, sagging lower eyelids, stunted bodies, and hydrocephalus.

The cause of the relationship between the inbreeding and facial deformity remain unclear, but the study authors suggest it's because mating between relatives increases the chance of offspring inheriting identical forms of a gene from both parents. This reduces someone's genetic fitness - meaning the

Correlation between the conditions

Maximilian I (regent from 1493), his daughter Margaret of Austria, his nephew Charles I of Spain, Charles' great-grandson Philip IV and Charles II were found to have the greatest degree of maxillary deficiency.

The researchers detected a correlation between the two conditions, suggesting they share a common genetic trait basis. They also identified a strong relationship between the degree of inbreeding and the degree of mandibular prognathism.

While the relationship to maxillary deficiency was also positive, it was only statistically significant in two of the seven features diagnosed.

"The Habsburg dynasty was one of the most influential in Europe, but became renowned for inbreeding, which was its eventual downfall. We show for the first time that there is a clear positive relationship between inbreeding and appearance of the Habsburg jaw," said lead researcher Professor Roman Vilas from the University of Santiago de Compostela.
