US cop body cam maker says it won't ship face-recog tech in its kit? Due to ethics? Did we slip into a parallel universe?


Re: Wait a minute

"its probably at least as good as the currently used eyeball system"

We aren't really using the "eyeball system" for the things we're using face recognition for.

"we know that if it gives a positive match then its just an indicator, not proof"

In the US, anyway, that doesn't matter. Law enforcement will treat it as proof and act accordingly.

"Its already proving to be usable for immigration control"

It is? I haven't seen that evidence.
