Facial recognition wrongly identifies public as potential criminals 96% of the time

Lets keep it this way or increase the wrongly identify rate :slight_smile:

I doubt you’ll find a bigger critic of facial recognition than me, but articles like these are just awful. Scaremongering and misleading people is a bad strategy.

Error rates, high costs, what politicians say about it - these are not the fundamental reasons to be worried about this, and do nothing to educate the public.

It’s difficult for reporters to grasp the profound implications of biometric identity systems and the compelling reasons to prohibit this for most use cases - let’s hope they get better quick.
