Writes The New York Times about it. The reporter of CBS Johnathan Vigliotti tells about a discussion around services of face recognition: "The person who is suspected of crime commission comes into the view of cameras. The image of his face is transferred to the server where it automatically compare to hundreds and thousands of police pictures detainees, arrested and convicts earlier. The police of the district Washington (Oregon) use service of face recognition Amazon since 2016. According to officers, the algorithm works much quicker than the specialist person. Opponents of similar services consider that risks from their universal application are higher, than their advantages. At once several cities in California, Auckland and Massachusetts discuss the ban of use of technology of face recognition by local authorities and departments. Critics specify, for example, that the Amazon service is inexact and unfairly distorts results in favor of white people. When last year activists of ACLU loaded into the system of the image of all acting Congressmen, the algorithm mixed 28 legislators with criminals, and the percent of mistakes among black congressmen was much higher. However police officers insist that in the necessary hands the technology can be useful". The ban on use by local authorities of services of face recognition will not concern the airports of San Francisco: safety is ensured there by federal departments. Today the technology in this or that form is used in a number of the airports of the USA, at big stadiums and in several police departments. Most on a substantial scale face recognition is applied in China: there, according to NYT, more than 200 million cameras are already connected to a system. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
