Now if they could just ban shitting In the streets
DEA and FBI will still use private company data.
That will stop almost nobody from using it there I bet.
This is great but what are they doing to clean up the poop?
They should ban facial recognition RESEARCH in San Fransisco, then it’ll have an ACTUAL impact.
The title is misleading…This only prevents local government.
Cause pooping on the street should stay anonymous!
They need to ban shitting in public streets
Misleading title. They banned the police and other city governments from using real-time facial recognition. The local Target is free to use facial recognition on all video cameras in real time if they want to track you through the store. And police are still free to use forensic facial recognition (running a mugshot or video from a scene of a crime through facial recognition databases). It’s just police can’t take a live feed from a video camera and continuously check through recognition software to see if they get random hits.
It seems like facial recognition software would be nightmare for people in witness protection, undercover officers or intelligence personnel.
And I thought they wanted to be more like Europe. You do you San Fran.
Kind of reminds me of those aliens in star wars who make the clone soldiers but don’t fight wars and act all superior because of it.
I’m going to blanket insult this entire comment section. There are so many useful idiots in here….
I’m actually kind of impressed.
And how do you enforce such a thing? Cameras are ubiquitous and facial recognition neural networks live in the cloud. So how does SF go about enforcing this ban? They can’t unless someone is stupid enough to admit it.
Facial recognition is here to stay. Your privacy ends at your front door. Good day.
Now if they could just ban shitting in the street
Oh **** I just ripped my face off…oh well
[While London has started trialling it :(](https://twitter.com/RagnarWeilandt/status/1128666814941204481?s=09)
nice move, can’t be good for the psyche to be watched and identified 24/7
What about poop recognition software?
Wasnt this posted yesterday?
There goes Watch Dogs 2’s whole premise
> the first in the United States to prohibit its government from using facial-recognition technology.
This doesn’t bar Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, etc. from doing facial recognition. Just sayin’
now they’ll never be able to find out who’s shitting in the street.
Excellent move for digital privacy. Need to stop turning humans into marketing info
It’s an oddity of this otherwise progressive city that it’s home to a strong Luddite population that simply hates “tech”. The same wing of the Board of Supervisors (who call themselves Progressive) regularly shoot down new housing developments in favor of preserving decades-old dying neighborhoods and businesses.
