The use of facial recognition technology is growing, for better or worse.
Here John Oliver explains better than probably any of us could, why this trend needs us to make some decisions about how it should be managed. Oliver covers the waterfront and has some hilarious zingers in this video essay and makes me wish the E.C. could consider no issue unless they view something like this for each one.
In one example in the pice he shows this area in London that announced to you in public that it was taking your photo for purposes of facial recognition. One guy covered his face up over his mouth with his T shirt and the police stopped him and made his stand for them to take his picture, and then they fined him 90 pounds. So this is public policy in London now? You either accept profiling or you get fined?
