San Francisco sätter stopp för ansiktsigenkänning

EFF rapporterar…

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted today by 8-to-1 to make San Francisco the first major city in the United States to ban government use of face surveillance technology. This historic measure applies to all city departments. The Stop Secret Surveillance Ordinance also takes an important step toward ensuring a more informed and democratic process before the San Francisco Police Department and other city agencies may acquire other kinds of surveillance technologies.

It is encouraging to see San Francisco take this proactive step in anticipating the surveillance problems on the horizon and heading them off in advance. This is far easier than trying to put the proverbial genie back in the bottle after it causes harm.

Modern kameraövervakning med ansiktsigenkänning kan vara mer integritetskränkande än att använda traditionella övervakningskameror. Detta då de lätt kan samköras med andra register i realtid.
