What dangerously universal introduction of systems of face recognition? Georgy Bovt's comment


The first city in the USA imposed a ban on use of technology by police and other departments. However practice of face recognition for identification of citizens already widely walks worldwide including in Russia Georgy Bovt. Photo: Mikhail Fomichev/TASS In San Francisco forbade police and other city departments to use technology of face recognition. It is the first city in the USA which made the similar decision. Whether there will be a ban case? San Francisco not the first time shows freedom-loving temper. It, for example, belongs to the so-called cities shelters which do not cooperate with the federal authorities in identification and capture of illegal immigrants. However, though in the USA many public organizations oppose broad application of biometric identification, still any city or the state in the country did not forbid it for official departments, including police. By the way, the ban of San Francisco does not belong to private persons and to the companies, they can still use technology of face recognition, including by means of surveillance cameras. In the USA it is not forbidden. Practice of face recognition for identification of citizens already widely walks worldwide. It became mass in China, having as much as possible brought closer this country to models which are described in anti-Utopias on the totalitarian future especially as in the People's Republic of China the system of video surveillance is tied to the so-called system of the social credit when citizens are encouraged for good or punish for bad behavior. For example, in the latter case can deprive of the right to move by planes or by high-speed trains and in general to limit in the rights and opportunities. And streets of the British cities and in general were covered by cameras some of first-ever, and we remember how on them two Russians who were accused of poisoning with Skripalya in provincial Salisbury were lit. Fighters for the civil rights in the USA and other countries sound the alarm in connection with rapid distribution of such technologies which all social and political consequences still plainly are not even representable. Besides threat of leakage of biometric these citizens and in general inconsiderate invasion of the state into private life, speak also about identification errors, for example concerning persons of different races and skin color. Many are afraid that such technologies can uncontrolledly use intelligence agencies against civic activists. At last, promptly filling up bases of biometric data, we do not even represent how in the near future them can already use, including against us, promptly growing wiser artificial intelligence. What there to it will come to his artificial mind? Russia is on the threshold of mass use of technology of face recognition. At the same time any public discussion of companion problems it is not even conducted. For example, last year the Ministry of Construction began to develop the plan of implementation of such technologies in the Smart City standard for the Russian cities. It was said, in particular, that face recognition would be convenient to be used in public transport: passages
