Facial Recognition System identified 26 lawmakers as criminals

https://www.forbes.com/sites/monicam...moves-forward/

Reported as the system failed, or did it? : )

Personally not a fan of this technology, just like I dislike the auto plate readers as it assuming everyone is a criminal and they need a database to verify your in the all clear.

Agreed. This is some real ss/kgb bullshit. No longer free if you live under a macro/micromanager’s microscope.

Obviously immature technology. Should return 100% as criminals.

No kidding! These are CALIFORNIA "lawmakers" we are talking about. I would bet that 119 of the 120 are criminals.

Go take a look at China's Sesame "Social Credit Score" if you want to see something that's truly scary.

Then, think about what would happen if the Green New Deal included a similar provision for ranking all citizens by their carbon footprint or for eating yummy burping cow steaks instead of tofu and health pellets.....

Greenland has a population of only 56,000, and is a parliamentary democracy.

New Era Field in Orchard Park, NY seats 71,608 people.

If we can get financing to build an 80,000 seat open-air stadium in Nuuk, the Bills Mafia will out-number the Greenland population and we can elect Jim Kelly as the Prime Minister! (It would have to be an open-air stadium, since part of the expectations of Buffalo fans are home games in the snow/cold.)

Wanna go halfies on a Tim Hortons franchise in Nuuk?????

I'm waiting for the day the NFL has an Alaska Team, those home games would be epic.

Every game in Alaska could be a NOME game!

Moving the 49ers up there from the bay area would be an option, and they wouldn't even need to change names.

How about building a domed stadium in the shape of an igloo and calling the team the Inuits (since the term "Eskimo" is apparently the N-word of the arctic)?

This still won't solve the problem of needing a haven to escape from politicians run amok.....

If SF is relocated to alaska it will be an improvement for vistors, less trash and crap on the streets for the public to deal with.

This system is clearly flawed as it didn't identify all of them as criminals. Ah well, back to the drawing board!

Well said!

Imagine if Trump claimed he didn't get a hurrumph from someone? What if that was monitored?
(See Blazing Saddles" for that reference, if we want to play the "what if" game)
