韩国将向面部识别研究人员提供数百万张照片

South Korea Is Giving Millions of Photos to Facial Recognition Researchers

The South Korean Ministry of Justice has provided more than 100 million photos of foreign nationals who travelled through the country’s airports to facial recognition companies without their consent, according to attorneys with the non-governmental organization Lawyers for a Democratic Society.

非政府组织“民主社会律师”(Lawyers for a Democratic Society)的律师表示,韩国司法部已向面部识别公司提供了逾1亿张外国人在未经允许的情况下通过该国机场的照片。

While the use of facial recognition technology has become common for governments across the world, advocates in South Korea are calling the practice a “human rights disaster” that is relatively unprecedented.

虽然面部识别技术的使用在世界各国政府中已经变得很普遍,但韩国的倡导人士称这种做法是一场相对史无前例的“人权灾难”。

“It’s unheard-of for state organizations—whose duty it is to manage and control facial recognition technology—to hand over biometric information collected for public purposes to a private-sector company for the development of technology,” six civic groups said during a press conference last week.

6个市民团体在上周举行的记者招待会上表示:“负责管理和控制面部识别技术的国家机关,为了开发技术,将为公共目的收集的生物识别信息交给民间企业,这是前所未闻的事情。”

The revelation, first reported in the South Korean newspaper The Hankyoreh, came to light after National Assembly member Park Joo-min requested and received documents from the Ministry of Justice related to a April 2019 project titled Artificial Intelligence and Tracking System Construction Project. The documents show private companies secretly used biometric data to research and develop an advanced immigration screening system that would utilize artificial intelligence to automatically identify airport users’ identities through CCTV surveillance cameras and detect dangerous situations in real time.

最先由韩国报纸《韩民族报报道的这一事件,是国会议员朴柱民向法务部要求并收到有关2019年4月“人工智能和跟踪系统建设工程”的文件后曝光的。这些文件显示,私营企业秘密使用生物识别数据研究和开发了一种先进的移民筛查系统,该系统将利用人工智能通过闭路电视监控摄像头自动识别机场用户的身份,并实时发现危险情况。
