BBC News: Tech Tent: Can facial recognition fit with a fair society?

Tech Tent: Can facial recognition fit with a fair society? – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-44250952

I hear a lot of people complaining about facial recognition software.. it’s been in use here for many years now but only just starting to hit the media.

The ability for software to recognize has been around for a very long time.. remember back in the day when we used OCR .. yea .. well this is much the same thing really but more advanced.

Businesses have been using number plate recognition for a long time.. the reality is that it was never that big a jump to people. In advancing countries like China, cardless ATMs are trailed and popular .. using just your face and a mobile number.

Bio readers like finger print scanners have been around for decades, now commonplace on most recent mobile phones and other devices.

“Don’t worry, your personal data is secure” … Lol .. try googling your own name .. or even a picture of yourself and see what comes up.

We gave up out rights to privacy when we decided we wanted social media and instant communication, and we wanted it for free… honestly companies don’t give anything for free.. there’s always a catch.. like targeted marketing … think Facebook is free lol no no it’s not. It’s a giant data mining company making an income from advertising and using their mined data to do so.

So why are you so worried about facial recognition again ?

Forward marches the future. One we can not control.

So relax.. enjoy the ride… it’s free .. and don’t forget to smile.
