    "DHS plan for face scanning at airports sparks alarm

    Lawmakers and civil liberties advocates are calling on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to halt plans to begin using facial recognition technology on nearly all departing air passengers within the next four years.

    The agency’s plan has reignited the fight over the sensitive technology. Critics say facial recognition technology is not ready for large-scale deployment and that DHS has failed to establish specific rules to prevent abuses and policies for handling the collected data..."

    Millions of people uploaded photos to the Ever app. Then the company used them to develop facial recognition tools.
    “The app developers were not clear about their intentions," one Ever user said. "I believe it’s a huge invasion of privacy.”

    "San Francisco Bans Facial Recognition Technology

    SAN FRANCISCO — On Tuesday, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors enacted the first ban by a major city on the use of facial recognition technology by police and all other municipal agencies.

    The vote was 8 to 1 in favor, with two members who support the bill absent. There will be an obligatory second vote next week but it is seen as a formality..."

    "China has a new facial recognition app — this time for pandas

    ...Chinese tech whizzes, who already have perfected facial recognition technology for humans to frightening levels of accuracy, have now come up with an app that can tell one white-faced, black-eyed bear from another.

    Visitors to the panda base in the Sichuan capital of Chengdu, one of China’s top tourist attractions, will be able to scan the panda’s face with the mobile app to get information about each individual bear...

    The panda facial recognition technology is the result of two years of research and the analysis of about 120,000 images and 10,000 video clips of the black and white furballs. Scientists at the Chengdu base and Sichuan Normal University, with help from Singapore Nanyang Technological University, have created a database containing 10,000 marked and annotated panda photos..."

    "Trump Administration Could Blacklist Chinese Surveillance Technology Firm

    WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is considering limits to a Chinese video surveillance giant’s ability to buy American technology, people familiar with the matter said, the latest attempt to counter Beijing’s global economic ambitions.

    The move would effectively place the company, Hikvision, on a United States blacklist...

    Hikvision is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of video surveillance products and is central to China’s ambitions to be the top global exporter of surveillance systems. The Commerce Department may require that American companies obtain government approval to supply components to Hikvision, limiting the company’s access to technology that helps power its equipment...

    Hikvision says its products enable their clients to track people around the country by their facial features, body characteristics or gait, or to monitor activity considered unusual by officials, such as people suddenly running or crowds gathering...

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in an interview with Fox News on May 2 that the administration was concerned 'that the Chinese are working to put their systems in networks all across the world so they can steal your information and my information.'..."
