But yes we should ban all public and commercial uses of facial recognition technology.
No. You can make it illegal. That's not abandoning it.
Companies an govs will use it anyway.
Large companies are risk-averse. Making something illegal keeps precisely the kind of entities I don't want using it away from it.
@zzz @wauz I'm not happy about making all facial recognition software illegal because it has legitimate uses, mostly in robotics - I want my robot dog to recognize me and my car to notice when I am falling asleep on the wheel.
Don't make hammers illegal, make them illegal to use them on someone's head.
Your face data will be uploaded to a server. Security vulnerabilities mean the face data can be stolen. It already can't be used as auth as you can't get a new face! People already now scrape the web for faces. That's how Clearview.ai got their database that they now let the police access for a small fee.
No. At least very large companies can do what they want and do it.
Take a look at VW. They only got in trouble in US because they aren't really big there.
If the regulations didn't work, companies wouldn't fight so hard to get them removed. Lax enforcement is also not a justification.
@zzz the "racist chat bot" entry doesn't belong there - Tay wasn't designed to be racist, she started mostly blank and learned how to talk from Twitter users.
All she did was exhibit the racist side of Twitter by reflecting it as a mirror.
The CV screener wasn't designed to sexist. The app that tagged blk people as gorillas wasn't designed to do that. These are common enough failures that the designers are culpable for not having tested against them before deployment.
