In light of recent protests, facial recognition has come under scrutiny for the way in which it's deployed by police departments. In response, IBM, Amazon and Microsoft have all stated that they'll either stop developing this tech, or stop selling it to law enforcement until regulations are in place.

At least half of Americans are reportedly in a facial recognition database, potentially accessible by the local police department as well as federal government agencies like ICE or the FBI. It's not something you likely opted into, but as of now, there's no way to be sure exactly who has access to your likeness.

These promises may not make a big difference though, as a number of powerful but lesser-known companies like Clearview AI and Rank One are leaning into the market. They say this tech helps catch dangerous criminals and makes communities safer.

Activists and researchers across the political spectrum nonetheless have serious concerns about privacy, algorithmic bias, and a lack of regulation.

I am generally strongly against the use of facial recognition technology. The surveillance state has too much power already. I don't care if it theoretically would make it easier to catch dangerous criminals, the risks of abuse highly outeweigh the benefits.

A bit disingenuous with funny smells.
I'll wait to find out who it was that shot her
and why others have been shot at the same location.

Agreed. Treat every news story with skepticism. The business model of news orgs is to sensationalize to create clicks and shares.

Ja I don't believe that news story either. Only three words from the 3 AM public confrontation between strangers that escalated to both sides exchanging fire were included in the article, which seems conveniently selective.
