Posted on 05/23/2018 1:49:54 PM PDT by BenLurkin
Amazon has handed over new technology to law enforcement that can identify faces in the crowd. Two states are already using it.
The ACLU, along with dozens of other groups nationwide, just sent a letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos demanding that the company stop providing the technology to government agencies.
With the evolution of technology, so comes the evolution of forensics, says Kpix 5 Security Analyst Jeff Harp.
He compares this technology to license plate readers which have been installed in many Bay Area cities. These have also drawn opposition from the ACLU.
If we use this technology in public places youll find people youre looking for might even find lost children, he says.

You can’t overthrow Bezos as an overlord. And he has a file on everyone.
Id sooner trust Bezos ...
Better for the states to purchase the recognition software from Beezzzos than the Chicoms.
There were news articles out about Chinese SW picking a single face from a large crowd.
Maybe they found the SW in recycled junk sent to China?
Or laying on the sidewalk?
Theyre in the same bed.
THAT is a valid point. Bezoz and his Washington Compost is as slimy a swamp rat as one can get.
You cant overthrow Bezos as an overlord. And he has a file on everyone.
True dat. And besides, what does Bezos or the gubmint need facial recognition technology for?
They already have millions of morons allowing Alexa full and complete 24/7 access into every aspect of their personal lives anyway.
Take a post it and cover your home computer camera.
This from an article on Breitbart News
"Figures revealed in response to Freedom of Information requests by the group, show that for Londons Metropolitan Police, 98 per cent of matches identified by the technology were wrong, the figure standing at 91 per cent for South Wales Police."
The more the government gets its hands on it, the more endangered are we all, imho.
I wonder if the computer technology comes back with an error code. Code 200-315.
Meaning “They all look alike to me.”
I think regular people ought to be able to have this then.
Make sure we are able to identify the govt thugs and bureaucrats that cause us trouble.
The American (?) Criminal Liberties Union opposes all law enforcement. But most of US oppose being spied upon. Hate agreeing with those commie b@$t@rd$, about anything!
