Amazon's facial-recognition technology is supercharging local police - SFGate

Amazon's facial-recognition technology is supercharging local police - SFGate



There is no way to stop this technology, and it is getting better everyday.  This Amazon technology is a quick way for even small Police Departments or Private security companies to get into the game. 



The good part of this Amazon Project it that it is only used as a case building technology, not to issue warrants.  In fact it is more like finding a couple of hundred college students to sit before a large TV screen and look for suspects.  This program just does it a lot faster.  Since it is only used to narrow down suspects, that investigators can check into.  With this type of use, there is probably no way to stop this technology going forward. 



There is no limit to the uses this technology can help security with.  Special Events facilities can use it to find banned individuals as can Mall Security even Theater Security. 



There are two main reasons this particular technology is going forward, one is the cost and two, is the  system can use virtually and video feed.  It could not be used as an access control system, it is not discriminating enough for that.   But for a warning system it should work just fine.
