    Such a shame, let see what people will say when a known pedophile was lurking near a school, raped and killed a kid in total impunity because his face wasn't recognized by cams because of some foolish privacy advocates.

    Improving facial recognition software requires thousands of faces. But did they consent?
    "Nevertheless, Dr Rubenstein believes academics should question where their data comes from.

    "Don't use a dataset that's been collected in an unethical way, or, if it had been collected in Australia, it would have been collected illegally," he said."

    Facial recognition is the way to go, you can't hide your face forever, and if you know that you can be recognized at every corner, you will be less encline to wrongdo.

    "She Was Arrested at 14. Then Her Photo Went to a Facial Recognition Database.

    With little oversight, the N.Y.P.D. has been using powerful surveillance technology on photos of children and teenagers.


    The New York Police Department has been loading thousands of arrest photos of children and teenagers into a facial recognition database despite evidence the technology has a higher risk of false matches in younger faces.

    For about four years, internal records show, the department has used the technology to compare crime scene images with its collection of juvenile mug shots, the photos that are taken at an arrest. Most of the photos are of teenagers, largely 13 to 16 years old, but children as young as 11 have been included...

    Elected officials and civil rights groups said the disclosure that the city was deploying a powerful surveillance tool on adolescents — whose privacy seems sacrosanct and whose status is protected in the criminal justice system — was a striking example of the Police Department’s ability to adopt advancing technology with little public scrutiny..."
