    No, Clearview AI's creepy plan to spy on us is not 'free speech'

    "Mastercard is pioneering new payment technology that identifies commuters by the way they walk

    Commuters may soon be able to ditch their bus pass and access public transport with technology identifying them by the way they walk.
    Mastercard is working with transport firms to develop a new system that would authenticate passengers by their gait...

    Closed-circuit television cameras would identify passengers approaching transport barriers. Once the system recognizes the individual, it would let them pass after matching them with an account that is in credit or linked to a valid payment card...

    Scammers are using increasingly sophisticated technology to assume the identity of customers and providers are seeking high-tech solutions to stay one step ahead..."

    "Live Facial Recognition Is Coming to U.S. Police Body Cameras

    Police cam manufacturer Wolfcom has contracts with 1,500+ organizations [police departments, universities, and federal organizations across the country.]

    Wolfcom, a company that makes technology for police, is pitching body cameras with live facial recognition to law enforcement groups across the United States,...It’s a move that pushes against industry norms: Axon, the largest manufacturer of body cameras in the United States, declared last year that it would not put the invasive technology in its hardware, citing 'serious ethical concerns.' NEC, which sells live facial recognition elsewhere in the world, has also not sold it to U.S. law enforcement..."
