Rite Aid在数百家店铺使用人脸识别已达数年之久

Rite Aid used facial recognition in hundreds of stores for years

Rite Aid used facial recognition systems in hundreds of its drugstores across the US over the last several years. According to a Reuters investigation, the technology was deployed in “largely lower-income, non-white neighborhoods” in New York and Los Angeles and had been in use for over eight years.

过去几年里,Rite Aid在全美数百家药店使用了面部识别系统。根据路透社的一项调查,这项技术被部署在纽约和洛杉矶的“低收入、非白人社区”,已经使用了8年多。

The system was designed to identify customers who the company previously had detected were “engaging in potential criminal activity.” An alert would then be sent to a security agent via smartphone, who’d then check whether the match was accurate and, if so, possibly ask that person to leave the store.

该系统旨在识别公司之前发现的“有潜在犯罪活动”的客户,然后通过智能手机向安保发送警报,安保检查匹配是否准确,如果准确,则可能要求此人离开商店。

As of last week, Rite Aid had pulled the plug on the software, which was present in around 200 locations, owing to a “larger industry conversation” about facial recognition. “Other large technology companies seem to be scaling back or rethinking their efforts around facial recognition given increasing uncertainty around the technology’s utility,” the company said.

Rite-Aid已于上周以”关于面部识别的大范围行业对话“关闭了该软件,该软件在大约200个地点都有销售。“其他科技大公司似乎正在缩减或重新考虑他们在面部识别方面的努力,因为这项技术的实用性越来越不确定,”该公司说。
