Facial recognition is here to stay. We love it on iPhone X’s Face ID. Will we love facial recognition when it can be used against us by an authoritarian government? Dave Farrington:
Granted, these are bad guys that are being tracked and captured, but the trend goes beyond the criminal– unless you consider jaywalkers to be criminals. In China, jaywalkers get scolded on WeChat, thanks to face recognition, and then shamed in public on giant video displays. From high crimes to misdemeanors.
Alright, so there are some bad uses for facial recognition. What can we do?
So, where are all the anti-facial recognition tools we can apply to our faces as makeup to prevent Big Brother from knowing who they are watching?
