facial recognition for the masses
Facial recognition software is coming to the masses. Imagine a Web search of photographs or video, searching images for a person not necessarily the main subject of a photo but who may have been in the background or unintentionally caught on surveillance or news footage. The implications for privacy are extensive. Jennifer Granick provides a nice overview in Wired of some of the privacy and social implications of this new software being beta tested by Riya.
