New York fails in first attempt to apply facial recognition technology to drivers

New York State’s attempt to identify terrorists traveling on the road via facial recognition technology has not been going so smoothly as the Wall Street Journal has received an e-mail from the Metropolitan Transport Agency that the 2018 test of the Robert Kennedy Bridge Bridge “in New York City not only failed, but also failed spectacularly – he could not find one face” within accepted criteria. ”

According to the US engadget website, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Transport Agency said the pilot program will continue at the Robert Kennedy Bridge bridge as well as bridges and other tunnels, but it is not a auspicious start.

The problem may be inherent to the early face recognition at these speeds. The Oak Ridge National Laboratory achieved more than 80% of the accuracy in a study that detected the faces through the front glass, but that was at a low speed, so it might not be ready for someone to fall on the bridge.

Face recognition is already a controversial problem, not to mention car alarms. Some consider abuses of power. There are problems of accuracy at the best of times, and sometimes there is a problem identifying people and non-white women.
