IRS doesn't completely scrap facial recognition, just makes it optional

Re: Facial recognition and women?

Ah, you must live in an ideal world.

For those of us who live in the real world know there are a lot of systems which are not "proper".

You've also never seen a really skilled make up artist at work, a bit of deft playing with highlights and shadows can make a (2D) representation of a face seem completely different.

Considering the false positive rates made by facial recognition systems in use it seems that it is actually quite easy to fool a facial recognition system, proper or otherwise
