You know all the hoopla about the wonders of facial recognition technology. It's a load of old bollocks. Over in the UK, London cops' facial recognition kit has only correctly identified two people to date – neither of whom were criminals – and the UK capital's police force has made no arrests using it. According to information released under Freedom of Information laws, the Metropolitan Police's automated facial recognition (AFR) technology has a 98 per cent false positive rate. Once again, someone is making a shitload of money for something that is fucking useless. Isn't technology great?
