A false facial recognition match sent this innocent Black man to jail

在已知的案件中,面部识别被用作逮捕的唯一证据的案例屈指可数,而且许多警察部门声称,面部识别仅用于调查线索。然而,根据一些隐私倡导者的说法,将面部识别作为证据出示的限制很宽松,而且这些匹配在刑事案件中如何使用的透明度也很低。

There are only a handful of known cases in which facial recognition has been used as the sole evidence in an arrest, and many police departments claim to use facial recognition for investigative leads only.

“当我们谈论美国每天进行的面部识别扫描的数量时,我们甚至不知道完整的数字,”监控技术监督项目(Surveillance Technology Oversight Project)的执行总监Albert Fox Cahn说。该项目是一个反对执法部门使用面部识别的非营利组织。“有些人被错误地送进了监狱,却不知道面部识别在他们被捕的过程中发挥了作用。”    

“When we talk about the number of facial recognition scans unfolding in the United States every day, we don’t even know the full number,” said Albert Fox Cahn, executive director of Surveillance Technology Oversight Project, a nonprofit that opposes the use of facial recognition by law enforcement. “You can have people who are being sent to jail wrongly who never know that facial recognition played a role in their arrest.”
