Skip to comments.MTA pulls security cameras from NYC subway train due to vendor’s ties to Chinese facial recognition company

The MTA on Thursday abruptly halted a program to test new security cameras on subway cars — a day after the Daily News raised questions about the ties the company providing the technology has to a Chinese firm that specializes in facial recognition technology.
Transit managers last week sent a memo to subway crews alerting them of new video cameras installed on a four-car G line train. The new tech is part of a years-long effort by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to improve security and put more eyes underground.
The test program installed four cameras in each of the cars, as well a system that operated the train’s digital signage and intercoms, the memo states.
The cameras began monitoring passengers on the G line train last Thursday — and MTA officials planned to keep them there for a year to see how they worked.
But the vendor contracted to provide the system’s technology — Suzhou Huaqi Intelligent Technology — raised major security flags that prompted officials to suddenly pull the camera-filled train from service on Thursday.

Are they sure the authorities removed the cameras? My first thought, considering the venue, was that they were STOLEN.
