looking into whether trump pressured ukraine to launch an investigation into joe biden a leading candidate for the 2020 democratic presidential nomination those are the headlines as always more news on our website at 0 dot com coming up next here is a stream stay with us. yes there are. they don't believe in the 2 state solution the do you still believe in the 2 state solution we listen to what i just said it was that pakistan would never start a war and to walk we meet with global news makers and talk about the stories of the 00. year in the stream what's the danger of facial recognition technology civil liberties groups say privacy shouldn't trump protection but government and police argue that attack ensure safety what do you think. today will look at how major
cities are taking very different approaches to facial recognition and explore how the chinese government is using this technology to track citizens but 1st how does facial recognition even work check out this clip from a documentary i filed for a.j. plus. facial recognition software creates data points that compare facial features databases are built from driver's licenses mug shots and surveillance video. the initial technology was developed in the 1960 s. today it's replacing fingerprinting and police lineup. facial recognition databases used by law enforcement in the u.s. included 117000000 adults that's one in 3 americans. in san francisco california is widely known as attack but last week city officials voted to ban the use of facial recognition by police and other government agencies proponents of the tax say it could help prevent or solve crimes but critics contend
these systems are prone to error pointing to cases in which they appeared biased against women and people of color if adopted widely they argue facial recognition could be abused to target rights activists or marginalized communities. here with us to unpack the debate mab cagle serves as a technology and civil liberties attorney at the american civil liberties union of northern california and london silkie carlos' the director of big brother watch an organization tackling issues related to privacy and technology and last but not least in new york city a little hey newman is a security reporter for wired she focuses on information security digital privacy and hacking welcome to the stream everyone so here i want to start with you you know we heard a little bit there in the intro from that clip i played that album kind of the basics of facial recognition technology but what is it and why does it seem so you pick with us today facial recognition was people to be identified in real time
by surveillance cameras that most of which look like ordinary surveillance cameras and it completely changes the nature of casing so it enables the police potentially to identify and track thousands of people at any time which puts an awful lot of power in state hands and i think really rebalances the relationship between this isn't and the state so you know you said in your piece that it's replacing fingerprinting with fingerprinting a police officer has to also. 'd fingerprint you have to have interaction they have to have probable cause some kind of purpose with facial recognition we're all being subjected to this kind of a pecial police lineup we're all being treated as suspects so really help us break this down just even a little bit further than it was an excellent definition from silkie there but just for our international audience so when we're talking about patient recognition what for you makes this even more chilling perhaps than c.c.t.v.
and what's the difference between facial recognition and using some of the apps on our phone to either unlock our phone or to use facial recognition features on some of the apps we know and love. yeah i think that pervasiveness as he says that comes from the fact that our face is just sort of out there in the world and we're not necessarily choosing what sees it or what it interacts with you know when we use it in an app or to authenticate something that we intend or to go into a building that we want to go into or something like that you know it's an interaction where we're making a choice when we're being sort of passively viewed through cameras that are placed in public or sort of semi you know public private spaces that we're just moving through in our daily lives that that becomes kind of out of control where we're just walking along and our faces like leading in front of us in this new way so
matt what concerns that san francisco lawmakers specifically have when it came to racial recognition. they're concerned about a lot of what's already been said you know facial recognition face surveillance provides the government with an unprecedented power to track individuals and groups with hardly lifting a finger on the in terms of human effort you can i mean imagine a world where you step outside your door and the government instantly knows who you are where you are who you're sociate ing with us and even the expressions on your face whether whether it's correct or it's just a guess this is a dangerous signal and she and some cisco at the heart of innovation here recognize that this technology has dangers unknown dangers right now it's inaccurate it's dangerous and if it's perfectly accurate it's dangerous to our democratic rights mad so they stuffed up in the act sorry i didn't mean to interrupt you i thought you were done but as you were talking i couldn't help but wonder as you were outlining all those things you know my i phone and apple knows all those friends
and even just without the you know face i.d. technology that exists but it's not just lawmakers in san francisco of course that are concerned sara rashid tweeted in saying i am for the ban not only is that and they said way to profile people but there is no scientific evidence that facial recognition has helped improve safety or deter criminal activity i would love to hear from you say ok after we watch this video from brian hoffer he sent to to us he is the man who drafted the law that banned san francisco agencies of course from using this technology take a listen to what he said. i think we all intuitively understand the dangers of this technology that right now today it would be really reckless to use it because of its really high error rate but the bigger concern is actually long term that it's going to become perfect surveillance that we will not be able to move about society freely i think it would obliterate our 1st amendment protections like the freedom of speech religion assembly and association i can't detach myself from my face i
can't. leave my house without my my my face and everywhere i go on oh no i'll be tracked so here forgive me your name sounds so similar to me i meant to ask willie let me i'm curious your thoughts. yeah i mean i think as you said there's just a really cumulative effect of this and i also really appreciate it mattes point that you know whether this technology succeeds in becoming highly accurate which it currently is not or whether it stays in the state that it's in it's really dangerous either way because you're either sort of potentially misidentifying people or having you know people get involved who are totally unrelated to something or the situation that we were hearing from in that clip where you're constantly correct being tracked so it's kind of either way there's just this.
serious concerns so i want to posit something for all of you and for our audience on the flip side of this and get your thoughts on it so we reached out to a local sheriff's office sheriff's office here in the us who their department is using facial recognition in the cloud you can take a look at this web site here recognition mission can be used to identify suspects quickly now this is the washington county sheriff's office and they actually sent us a statement on what they're using it for and how it's gone for them and they say we can provide that facial recognition has been a successful tool for us and it has several success stories one thing to understand is the facial recognition software we use is not the deciding factor when i didn't .
