Facial Recognition Systems in the US
Facial recognition technology has become a topic of concern, as it raises issues of privacy, identification, correlation, and discrimination. In a recent article, it was highlighted that the problem lies not in the specific technology used for identification, but in the process itself. Whether it is facial recognition, gait recognition, license plate recognition, or any other form of identification, the concerns remain the same. Facial recognition happens to be the easiest technology to implement at the moment.
A helpful summary is available that outlines which US retail stores are currently using facial recognition, considering its use, or have no plans to implement it. However, it is important to note that these plans can change without notice. The use of facial recognition technology by retail stores in the US has raised concerns about the potential invasion of privacy and the misuse of personal information.
Campaigns to ban facial recognition have been criticized for being too narrow in their focus. It is not just the technology itself that poses a threat, but the way it is used and the potential for discrimination. The issue lies in the identification process, regardless of the specific technology employed. Facial recognition may be the most accessible and widely used technology at present, but other forms of identification, such as the MAC address of our phones or license plate recognition, can also raise similar concerns.
