"...isn't that it 'doesn't work'. It does. Rather well, in fact."

Sorry but: No, it doesn't. Having it work rather well with your iPhone isn't translating into it working well out on the street amidst thousands of faces. I have yet to read of public facial recognition systems actually working at a level anyone would call 'competent'. Examples:

Facial recognition flunks ID test at New York City's RFK Bridge, report says

Facial Recognition Technology Test Has Massive Failure, Matches 20% Of California Legislature With Wanted Criminals

98% Failure Rates: Why Police Facial Recognition is so Terrible
