FBI and CIA Use Facebook Recoginition To Search for Criminals [Video]
The FBI and CIA are teaming up to use Facebook's new facial recognition technology to catch criminals. Now when you hear this your like "Great another way to catch criminals!" but think about that for a second. With this tech being distributed to local law enforcement what happens when you accidentally get a warrant for something stupid? Like not having your dog on a lease and they get loose? Do you really want local law enforcement all in your photo's?
Maybe your thinking well that's fine I will just delete my account. With this new face recognition if you just happen to show up in one of your friends photo's this tech will automatically recognize you!
It's a double edge blade for me. On one side I want the law to be able to use whatever tool they can to catch criminals, but on the other side I don't them to abuse their power and everything turns into the matrix or something weird.
